I would get rid of the coconut oil altogether and I think you should include the almond butter in your lye calculation. Admittedly, I'm not at all familiar with almond butter, so take that with a grain of salt
Sorry, I should have included that in the first place! Coconut oil can be drying in soap, and that amount would be fine in a body bar, but I think a facial bar should be more mild. Everyone's skin is different, so you may like it, but that's my opinion
How cool that you're going to use homemade almond butter! I was thinking more of a hydrogenated almond oil and that's why I recommended including it in your lye calculation. In this case, you may simply be able to use it as an additive, just like you planned. I know there are people who have used peanut butter in the same manner. Hopefully someone more knowledgeable than me will chime in!
Don't use fractionated coconut oil, you want to use the 76* stuff, thats what you can buy at the grocery store. Fractionated makes a harsh soap. I would actually change quite about about the recipe, it has way too much castor and coconut. Try something like this.
I think because he will be adding the almond butter after the cook.
Op, you have the superfat set to 7 on the recipe. This means that, for the oils in the recipe listed in soap calc, 7% less lye is calculated than would be needed to saponify all of it. Then you are adding in your almond butter, which will increase the superfat even more. I'm not sure if that was your plan, but that seems like a hefty superfat once all is said and done
Ok I made mistake with this recipe
But that was good mistake now I learned new information from all of you , thank you all , I feel that I entered a house full of good people , they love to give and share what they have and spend a lot of time and money to get this knowledge .
You are the best and I have no enough wards to thank you all .
Thats a good point susie, I wouldn't add any kind of food product as SF after the cook. I would want to thoroughly blend the almonds into the oils before adding the lye. I wouldn't try to HP goats milk either, I know people do and it turns out ok but for me, milk is tricky enough without cooking it. I would probably get a burned mess.
I tried the shampoo bar here and liked it for about 2 months. Then it seemed to really dry my hair out. It makes for a nice facial soap though. I no longer use the shampoo bar, but my facial bars were inspired by them (I use lard in the facial bar).
