hey i'm doing a soap making project for school and need to know the different effects in soap using refined and unrefined coconut oil. i'm a "research scientist" in the project and my group needs to make the recipe. we're almost positive we want to use either a coconut oil/palm oil combination or a coconut oil/lard combination. so any help would be great! thanks

Right here, silly!
I've used both Virgin Coconut Oil (which is very expensive), and Refined Coconut Oil in soap. Both gave me the exact same results. Needless to say, I now use only refined for my soap. It's much less expensive. I would save the Virgin Coconut Oil for leave-on products such as lotions, etc.., instead of a wash-off product such as soap. HTH! :)
