Default First Recipe Feedback

This is what I am planning for my first recipe. I was wondering if anyone has any feedback on anything I might want to change (other then the fact that I am planning on four oils in my first recipe ) I think it looks fairly well balanced, the only thing I might be concerned about is that it might be a little low on lather. Any feedback is appreciated. Thank you in advance.

What happens if you make palm 30 and make castor 10?

Looks like it will be a pretty creamy and moisturizing bar. I can't wait to see your pics when you get to make it!

Right. As a general rule the harder the bar the less lather. Sacrificing one or two points for hardness will get you a touch more lather. I spose you could always add a pinch of salt if you want to bring back the hardness a touch.

I think your first one was better. Try them both and see.

Go for it. Looks good, you should not have any problems but it will be soft so do not unmold for at least 24 hours. My numbers are real close to that and I am setting mine outside to unmold so it is slightly frozen so I can cut it.
