    Hello Everyone,
    First of all, I would like to say Thanks to everyone who contribute to this forum and share their information and help others like me.
    Attaching a few pictures of my first cold process soap , which was a simple recipe using live oil,coconut oil and castor oil
    They are nt pretty but they have turned out fine, as i have started using them after cure time around 5 weeks

    Congratulations.. They look good!

    Those will get even better... For obvious reasons, your olive oil is probably the highest amount in this soap, which for me, gets better after a while. Keep one to try at 2mos, 4mos and 8mos, you'll see :)
