I have a problem. I made HP soap with a usual recipe (except I used half evaporated goat's milk and half water). It's extremely drying to the skin. I used two tbsp. of honey, 2 tbsp. oatmeal, 1/4 calendula blossoms, and about 2 tbsp. of vanilla bean paste. The milk was frozen, but the mixture did turn orange. I have no idea why it's drying me out. My tea tree soap doesn't even dry me out. I used 30% coconut oil, 30% palm, 30% olive oil, and 10% shea butter. I had 32 ounces of oil, and I used (according to the lye calculator) 129 g. of lye. What could be the problem? Anybody got an idea? Thanks in advance.
