have been away for a bit so just now managed to re-do the recipes.
We can have hard dry winters, so we don't want something that is going to be on the harsh side of things, but I also want a soap bar that is going to last a reasonable amount of time under normal circumstances...

recipe #1
Castor oil 9%
Coconut oil 7%
Olive oil 18%
Palm kernel oil 18%
Palm oil 12 %
Sunflower oil 27%

Hardness 37
Cleansing 17
Conditioning 60
Bubbly 25
Creamy 28
Iodine 72
Ins 135

Recipe #2
Castor oil 10%
Cocoa butter 7 %
Coconut oil 9 %
Olive oil 13%
Palm kernel oil 17%
Palm oil 12%
Sunflower oil 32%

Hardness 36
Cleansing 17
Conditioning 61
Bubbly 26
Creamy 28
Iodine 75
Ins 134
