    So I have read through most of the shampoo bar threads. I found that I hadn’t run across a single one that mentions the Opus Shampoo Bar. I have REALLY hard water at my house so I have to do a baking soda rinse before I wash but honestly, aside from that I absolutely love this recipe. I thought I’d share it because I think it’s a real gem! Have you tried it? What is your go to Shampoo Bar recipe?

    Opus Shampoo Bar – 3 lb. batch, superfatted at 5%

    Water – 517 g (Lisa uses half beer, half aloe juice)
    Lye – 192 g
    Coconut Oil – 382 g
    Olive Oil Pomace – 408 g
    Castor Oil – 63 g
    Lard – 340 g
    Shea Butter – 42 g
    Cocoa Butter – 25 g
    Rice Bran Oil – 123 g

    I haven't made any soap bars yet, but I want to. Is it okay if I save this recipe for later?

    I like syndet bars made with SCI and a little BTMS for conditioning! I’ve never had any luck formulating a lye based shampoo bar that doesn’t make my hair feel icky. If your hair is a testament to your shampoo bar, I’d love to try it! If that’s ok!! Because like Trenna said, your hair looks lovely!!
