I made a batch of avocado soap last winter and loved it as facial soap ever since. It was a tiny batch with only 4 bars and I poured way too early. I decided to revamp it this year so I can use it for winter this year and hopefully my online shop will be ready by then.

Avocado puree: water 1:1 as liquid to dissovle lye. Palm, rice bran, olive, avocado, sweet almond oil. Super slow to trace but I made sure it's light trace before I pour.
Used mostly eucalyptus eo and some mint eo for scent. Yellow and green clay for color. I think I put in too much yellow clay lol, would love it to be greener.

I love it! Did your last batch retain the green color without going brown? My skin gets so dry in winter that I think I may want to try to make a batch with some avocado in it just to see how it compares to the other soaps i make for my winter use. Thank you for the inspiration!

The green color of the soap came mostly from the clay, not the avocado. The avocado puree turned a green-ish yellow color when in contact with lye. Since my last batch was a very pale green even with green clay added so I doubt avocado alone can make a strong color but there is no browning for sure.

I have different green colorants so I will add one of them to enhance it a bit. Good to know! thank you
