Milk Moisterizing Soap Recipe
by: Countryfarm Lifestyles

Try this Milk Moisterizing Soap:


1.13 kg cold, distilled water
473 g sodium hydroxide
1.18 kg olive oil
1.13 kg coconut oil
680 g palm oil
227 g cold goats milk

Carefully add the sodium hydroxide to the distilled water and stir carefully with a wooden spoon. The lye will heat the water to over 200 degrees C. so set the lye mixture aside and allow it to cool down to 80 degrees F. (27 degrees C.)

Now measure out the oils. Add the coconut oil and palm oil together in a large pot. Put the olive oil in a separate pot. Place over low heat, allowing for most of the solid oils to melt.

Remove both pots from the heat, swirl pots around allowing for the last remaining chunks of oil to melt. Now add the two oils to the olive oil.

Let the oils cool to 80 degrees F.(27 degrees C.)

As your oils get to the right temperature, gently heat your goats milk to 80 degrees F (27 degrees C), stirring constantly. If the temperature of your oils has dropped to below 80 degrees F, then put them back on the stove to bring them back to just below this temperature.

Now add the lye solution to the goats milk slowly in a steady stream, mixing briskly to avoid separation. You may find at this stage that the lye will react with the goats milk increasing the temperature, but it shouldn't go up more than a couple of degrees.

Now add the lye goats milk solution into the oils, stirring quickly as you add. Do not beat or whip the mixture, but stir constantly making sure that the mixture is in constant motion.

The mixture can take between 10 - 40 minutes to saponify so keep mixing. Once it has reached trace stage, you can now pour your soap into frames or molds.

Some things to note: This soap has a lot of residue that collects on the sides of the pot as you stir. Do not scrape these back into the mixture. Just leave them.

Secondly, if you don't stir this mixture properly when you pour it out you will find that that the last of the soap is watery, or has oily patches. If this happens, don't add this to your soap that has already been poured out, as it will spoil the rest of the batch.
