I am so glad you reworded your questions back to me. I'm about as novice as they come and I do realize how much of an amateur I am. At this moment, I do a line of body butter and lip balm but no soaps.
What my goal is, is to make a 2 in 1 beard shampoo plus conditioner. After some more research last night, I ended up purchasing Dr. Bronners Castile soap as a base for my 2 in 1 vs. coconut oil soap, which I do know is very different to just plain coconut oil. I'm going to be adding coconut oil to the recipe so it acts as a conditioner. If that will work?
I believe the face to be much more of a sensitive area than the scalp in general and the hair is more coarse. The idea here, is to use the castile soap to help with sensitivity and cleansing and coconut oil for conditioning the coarse hairs on the face (if i understand correctly, coconut oil can act as a cleanser too?). Jojoba oil helps with acne and dry skin and has a nice long shelf life as does the coconut oil. It also penetrates the hair follicle, has anti fungal properties, and stimulates hair growth. I'm sure you know all of the benefits to these wonderful oils but these are the reasons I'd like to have them in my finished product.
I am trying to figure out if my combination of almond oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil, and castile soap plus my essential oils for their various properties, would work? I do know that the coconut oil will provide a bit of a lather, which i find that the men generally want to have with a beard wash. Will the other oils be too oily or will the castile and coconut oil help remove them but also leave behind their conditioning properties?
I hope this helps a little? Again, I'm very new to all of this and there is A LOT to learn, which i assure you, I am trying!! I wasn't really sure how to properly ask and I'm very aware how my frantic questions must have been confusing. I appreciate any info you may want to share, which is why I came to this forum. I read elsewhere online that you all are a helpful community and I am overjoyed that this network exists for novice and experts alike!
