I usually just use 10-15 drops ppo.
You can add Vit E or Rosemary Oleoresin Extract along with the rice bran oil to prevent DOS. I use Riceland rice bran oil in a lot of my soap along with a little Vit E. I haven't experienced any problem with DOS.
i have been using 25% Rice bran in my main recipe for over a year now and no signs of DOS at all. I dont put any vit E or ROE in it at all. But I do have a dehumidifier in my back room where the soaps live. Maybe that has something to do with it.
Hi dillsandwitch. Do you find that RBO makes your batter trace very fast?
Make sure to use Vit E with sunflower oil unless it is high oleic sunflower oil. I have a problem with canola and DOS, so definitely use Vit E or rosemary oleoresin extract with this recipe.
The thing for me and my food intolerances is that I have to know what's in an oil or fat. Cold pressed low salicylate oils are fine. Chemically treated or heat treated are not.
Most lard etc is heat treated and hydrogenated - a definite no no for me.
It's difficult but I think I'm best sticking with the few cold pressed oils that I know are "safe" for me if I want to avoid side effects of naturally occurring salicylates. I am not idealogically opposed to animal fats.
Naturally made lard and tallow are not heat treated nor chemically treated. The fat from the cow or pig is warmed at low temperatures (180) to melt, then the melted oil is poured off. That's it. The lard or tallow sets up and keeps for a long time. I love grass fed beef tallow. Makes awesome soap![
