What oils would you recommend using in place of expensive olive oil. Because I did a cost comparison of the 2 pounds of soap I made versus the M&P soap that I have bought. The M&P soap is $8.95 and the CP I made was $9.95. I know that homemade soap has a higher premium than M&P soap but I would like to create a CP soap for a similar cost of M&P. The $9.95 cost is ok but I want to use less olive oil in my recipes. Less olive oil will lower the cost and help with the curing time. I basically want to create a base soap that is affordable to go along with more exotic/expensive soaps.
