dear friends can you comment on my soap recipe and tell me at what temperature do I have to make
Pomace olive oil ----65 percent
coconut oil -----20 percent
palm oil -----10 percent
castor oil -----5 percent
Your recipe should be fine as is. It is a "high conditioning" and "low cleansing" batch -- good for sensitive skin. TEMP: 100F - 120°F
250 grams X a factor of 1.37 = 342 grams of soap
(3 bars 114 grams each)
With 65% Olive Oil, I would use to 0% - 2 % SF
due to the unsaponifiables typical of olive oil soaps that produce a kind of "slime" or "mucus" in the lather.
See Zany's No Slime Castile
to avoid that effect and to increase hardness with the addition of Faux Sea Water. Try 70% OO, 15% CO, 10% Palm, 5% Castor.
INS Value: 139
- Expect the batch to stay in the mold a little longer to be hard enough to unmold and wait until it is hard enough to cut. The Cure Rate
may take longer than the average 4-6 weeks
. Be patient. I think you will like the end result. So-called "Perfect Soap" has an INS Value 160. NOTE: This may not be true with a small batch but worth remembering for upsizing the batch.
Sat:Unsat Ratio 33:67 - For your second attempt, you may want to try the BASIC TRINITY OF OILS - for a more balanced bar using those same oils, to experience the difference.
