    DOS, with that percentage of Canol and 50% of coconut oil is it going to be very drying soap. You could use 50 lard, 10%Canola, 5% Castor, 20 % Coconut Oil, 15% OO or Avocado, or Almond

    Or you could up the lard to 60% and use coconut at 20% with canola at 15% and castor at 5%.

    Unless your canola is high oleic then you can use more of it.

    Here's how :)

    If you've not read that site, I encourage you to do so. The soapy stuff section is full of well explained info.

    It looks like that nutrition label is missing the info to estimate the oleic-nissity☆ of the oil. The front side is covered with phrases good for frying (high) but also good for salad dressing.... wonder if this is a mid-oleic then?

    I think you'll be safe, no matter the oleicnissity* of the canola oil if you limit it to 30% of the recipe.
    You'll want some coconut for bubbles (15-30% of the recipe (the amount you'll want is inversely related to your age :eek:)). Lard for the bulk of the recipe. You're golden.

    *Now that it has been used twice it's a word!! :washingdishes:

    I think that is high-oleic. Low-oleic oils tend to be horrific for frying.
