I'm trying to use the last of it up. I have 185g of it to use (6.53oz) and the recipe I made for it is

37% Red Palm
23% Palm Flakes
40% Olive oil.

I'm also going to use coconut milk as 100% in my lye solution.

Anyone have any suggestions? The oils and butters I have available are cocoa and avocado butters and avocado, olive pomace, coconut, rice bran and babassu oil (makes a nice soap but I want to save this for a cream).

I usually just stick with a 5% superfat, but you should be able to do an 8%-10% superfat with no problems.

I'm already making it but forgot to change the default superfat. But since I decided to try and HP this soap, if it's not a complete disaster, I may or may not add a little extra oil after the cooking. I'could also leave it alone and see how it will do. Thanks, LSG
