I’m trying to come up with a recipe for a hard, long-lasting bar of soap based on palm. I don’t want to add an animal fat for this one. To date, my recipes with palm at >40% have moved pretty fast, so I’m looking for tips on ways to slow things down. It doesn’t need to be super slow, but I would like some time to add a swirl. I usually soap at 33% lye concentration and for palm I keep my temp at around 110F, but had one batch of soaps I made in individual molds that turned out fine with a starting temp of 100 F. For that recipe I used palm (30%) & refined shea (10%) and was able to get smooth tops on the individual soaps. Should I first try dropping the lye concentration a little? I’m hoping to avoid rivers in this one.
