I tweaked one of my favourite recipes a coupple of days ago, and made two identical versions of it in soapcalc, except 1 thing - I did a switheroo and had one recipe with 20% avocado and no almond oil, and the other one with 20% almond oil and no avocado . The only difference whas the switch between those oils.
I did the avocado oil a few hours ago, it was HP. Later this week I will do the almond one and see if there is a difference to be noticed just because of that switch.
I think I will make a new thread about it, but to late now, it is late and time for bed.
Please do. I am interested in the feedback. My son's feedback is "it's soap!!!" It has to be pretty terrible to get constructive help from them. :mrgreen:
I cannot even finish reading this thread. All I can think of is, "YOU PEOPLE ACTUALLY WASTE AVOCADOS IN SOAP?" I mean, really? You don't eat the flesh of the avocado, you PUT IT IN SOAP? You are all absolutely MAD, BONKERS, NUTS!! Oh! The inhumanity!!! (Now, I'll go back to reading. BTW: avocado gelato is the bomb!)
ETA: although I cannot imagine using purée, I do like the oil in my soap. One of the experimental soaps I made last year had buttermilk and avocado oil in it. I pulled a bar of that out a few weeks ago and was using it at the bathroom sink. The soap was amazing. I'm not positive if it was from the oil or the buttermilk, so I've got to recreate the bar without the buttermilk.
Actually, does anyone ever use the mashed avocado you can buy prepackaged at the store for soap? I just thought of that. I've never bought that, I always eat the fresh fruit, but the stores have it in the freezer and some in the fresh produce section. Hmmm, that might be an interesting experiment...
Of course I don't waste a good avocado (sometimes $3.99 a fruit and that's AUD!!) on soap. I use the oil. Not from the supermarket though because that is also $$$$. :mrgreen:
