I have only used the cheapest regular coconut oil in the 100% co soap. I have a huge 60+ ounce container of organic unrefined extra virgin co(because I actually eat it,oil pull with it and cake myself in it after every bath because I don't use lotion). I know some, if not all of you have tried using the good stuff instead(just to see for yourself if the heavenly smell remains after saponification, which I know it doesn't)in your 100%co 20%sf soap. My question is....is there any noticeable difference in lather of any other quality of the soap? Would it be worth it to use evco vrs. Co Or would I just be wasting the oil? Also is 20% the highest sf you've successfully gone? I bought a co soap that was said to be sf'd at 25% and it was kind of soft,but I think the guy sold it to me at like only a few weeks cure, it did still seem kind of soft and harsh. I was still so new to soap making that I didn't know to just let the soap cure more, instead I used it for dishes because it was drying on my skin. So I have no idea how that bar would have been at 6 months.
