    Saltbar Soap

    I like adding a bit of sugar toward the end of emulsification. I like adding powdered coconut milk and powdered goat milk at the same time. I take a 15% lye discount and use 7% unrefined Shea in my recipe too. The added fat from the two powdered milks adds to the fating of the recipe. Paul
