Hi! Was wondering if you all could look over this recipe and suggest whether it would be a great bubbly conditioning soap, also how long does a soap high in olive oil need to cure?

Olive oil 70%
Coconut Oil 22%
Mango Seed oil 3%
Castor oil 5%


IF ANYONE COULD RECOMMEND A GREAT VEGAN/PALM FREE RECIPE, FEEL FREE TO SHARE!

Not sure what the mango would be bringing to the part at that low amount. Other than that, it's a pretty decent looking bastile. I would give it a cure of at least 3 months

I'M AFRAID I USE ANIMAL FATS OR PALM IN MOST OF MY RECIPES. BUT HAVE YOU THOUGHT OF A SALT BAR?

You can use butters instead of palm or animal fats. I use a combo of cocoa and shea butters, no more than 20% combined. I actually use 7 oils/butters in total, which isn't really necessary but I didn't want a high olive oil soap. Play around with different amounts of oils until you find something you like - I love my recipe, but you may prefer something different!

Cure at least 3 months, probably more like 6.

I use lard, also, so I am no help on the other.
