ohhh I am going to try that. How about leaving the salt out? Still 13 to 15% superfat, because of the milk fat? is that why?

And I have another question. (Sorry I am full of them sometimes). I am looking to make eggnog soap. And I have this powder to make eggnog. If I just put like a table spoon after trace, I do not need to change the water content, right?

For me, it's because of the milkfat and also the salt content (I find that the salt content in my salt soaps helps to reduce that uber-cleansing feeling from the 100% coconut oil.

This is just me, but if I were ever to make a 100% CO soap with 100% coconut milk (but no salt), I would superfat at 15%.

I know of some folks that like to add more water when adding things like milk powders and clays, etc.., but speaking only for myself, I never change my water amount when adding such things, and all comes out well with my 33% lye concentration regardless.

I made a triple coconut soap one time: 100% CO with a 20% SF. Did a 1:1 ratio of lye with coconut water, then added the remainder of the volume of water as coconut milk at trace. I liked that soap....need to do it again.

I am going to test it in a small batch. I love coconut oil.
