Lies. You're 35 and that's final.I made an amazing soap with a bunch of butters I had in the house and goat milk as a water replacement. (I actually used powdered goat milk.) I used 10% of each of these butters: cocoa, kokum, shea, and mango. 10% babassu oil, 45% lard and 5% castor oil. I would not suggest you go and purchase these specifically to make a soap because they're a bit pricey; however, if you already have them on hand, they make a great soap when put together. My batch is not fully cured yet, but I've been using a tester bar since I made it and it is lovely on my skin. (I'm 50, so I guess I'm an "older" person.)
I agree. As we age our skin's epidermis and subcutaneous tissue layers become thinner, making the skin more fragile. Other factors also contribute, such as smoking, genetic make-up, excessive exposure to the sun, etc. Doctors often advise against use of exfolients in the elderly and people with diabetes.I would never suggest that anything exfoliating be used on crepey skin. That skin is so very thin and fragile! I would just suggest a high lard, low CO soap with an appropriate amount of superfat for the person's preference.
It will be. That is going to be some rich, creamy lather. Not much on bubbles, but the richness will make up for it.It is not cured yet, but I decided to experiment with my last batch and made a
75% lard/20% OO/5% castor. I made it because my regular bars that have 15% CO dry my sil skin out and that really bugs me, so I decided to experiment. It won't be ready until the end of this month, but I am hoping it will be really gentle.
I would not add salt, you won't need it.What does this look like to you.
1 Castor Oil 4%
2 Canola Oil 10%
3 Coconut Oil, 76 deg 15%
4 Lanolin liquid Wax 1%
5 Lard, Pig Tallow Manteca 50%
6 Olive Oil 15%
7 Sunflower oil 5%
I would like to ad some sugar and some salt.
