    Help with recipe

    I've made one batch, 50% lard, 45% Olive oil and 5% Castor oil. It turned out very hard and is extremely moisturizing. Perhaps you could replace the Castor and some of the Olive with 10-15% coconut oil for some cleansing. I Think I may have to try this now.

    I've just recently started using shea butter and it's going to be hard to wait 3 more weeks to try it out. Your recipe looks great to me.

    And the loaves before they were sliced The camo soap was the first trial of my new tall skinny 4" mold that I made. A little to much batter made for an oversize loaf. These were also my first CPOP, I thought I would give it a try to insure gelling.
