Thanks for providing this, as I have not gotten the chance to read through the thread provided above yet. What percent super fat do you use?To make good shampoo bar you need to set cleansing to 0. check oils with 0 cleansing. for example olive oil. Based on my last test I found out by adding egg yoke it makes it very good shampoo bar. so far no one complained about it. the recipe doesn't matter pick any oil with highest conditioning. then at trace add yoke. for 3 pound oils i added 2 egg yokes. just to give you some idea. also add Shea butter. make sure water/lye ratio is 2:1.
I used olive oil, palm oil, shea butter, egg yoke. olive oil and palm oil i bough them from trader joes.
