Its been a year or so since my last soap making project. Could not find my best formula so I made up one best I could.

Water...........14.1 oz
Lye.................6.31 oz
Avocado Oil 5.00 oz 12.82%
Olive Oil - Pure 10.00 oz 25.64%
Coconut Oil 24.00 oz 61.54%

Coast soap fragrance 3 oz

Soap went from liquid to congeled in 2 seconds. Had to hurry to get in the mold. Made 18 bars; 12 in a bulk mold then cut and 6 in a six-place mold. Dried for 2 days and used it yesterday morning...already hard and a very good soap. Lathers 7/10 very moisturing, still hard after a hot shower smells great

As well as the fragrance likely being an accelerator, that high a percentage of coconut oil will probably set up reasonably quickly too.
Can I ask if there a reason you have it set so high? While it'll certainly give you plenty of bubbles and powerful cleaning, it will be too drying for a lot of people to use as a bath/shower soap. Is this soap intended as hand soap for someone like a gardener or mechanic?
