Has anyone tried using olive pulp in bar soap? I was just reading about moroccan soap which sounds just lovely but I dont have KOH just NaOH. I also dont have fresh olive pulp just the store bought canned olives. Has anyone tried using those? Any thoughts on this matter?

I personally haven't tried it, but others on SMF have ... um, lemme look ... it was Pilar and Ms Molly that come to mind:

Yes, canned olives can work. The lye really needs to be KOH, however. If you use NaOH, you'll basically make a hard bar soap, not a paste soap.

I have a castile soap curing that I made with olive paste. Not finding it anything out of the ordinary other than the olive being an exfoliate. I think the others may have tried making Beldi, which I also tried and it was unsuccessful for me. Since I had a bunch of black olives leftover from my playing with Beldi, I wanted to use them some way, hence the bar soap with olive paste
