Thank you everyone, I think that Brewer George has a suitable option for this project - using Wal Mart products. I do worry about allergies - and also using animal products in case these are given to people who's religions prohibit their use.

Maybe crisco instead if you are worried about animal products will upset someone or against their religion. Actually in my experience, most homeless are not that picky and actually quite friendly unless they have been abused or have mental illness. It's such a shame they fall out of system and some with mental illness it's harder for them to get back in. And with global economic in the toilet since 2008...I hope that government around the world will do something about it. Create more temporary jobs, some shift late at night.., for these people. Sometimes I have the feeling that certain kind of bourgeois/ middle class or upper class IS the bunch that are really picky or snob. Maybe the life stress, the peer pressure, or...first world problems. But I digress.



ETA: I'm thing about make some pine tar to give the church. Though I'm not a Christian or catholic .They supply one meal a day for homeless. And being homeless, means usually you don't have much money for skin conditions. And live on the street/ under the bridge does make their skin look rough. And pine tar being antibacterial, anti fungal, etc. might served this purpose well.

I know that Islam has a specific exemption to eat things that are haraam (forbidden) under duress. So washing with something probably wouldn't be a problem for most. I would suspect Judaism has a similar exemption.

Anyway, Walmart's vegetable shortening (with the pie on the front) is hydrogenated soy and palm. I use it for my daughter's vegan recipe and it works fine.

FWIW, to new soapers I always suggest a simple non allergenic type of recipe..........20 percent coconut, 50 percent lard/palm, 30 percent olive.

I tell them about 5 percent castor oil and let them know about the increased suds.

Unless you live in an incredibly small town, whatever shelter they stay in at night usually has commercially produced soap (mine uses Dial, as they are corporate tax write offs) for the people that stay with them. Therefore, they have choices if they have religious prohibitions against certain products. I, therefore, only worry about allergens. That would be the reason I write a label for the box. Then people can make informed choices.
