Below is my recipe for shaving soap and it needs to be a little softer and wondering what would be the best way to make that happen?

Castor Oil .9 oz
Cocoa Butter .9 oz
Coconut Oil 2.65 oz
Shea Butter 2.65 oz
Stearic Acid 17.6
Tobacco Leaf & Amber Fragrance .5
Glycerin 1.75 oz.
Water 8.25
Potassium Hydroxide 2.25
Sodium Hydroxide .95

Assuming that "sodium potassium" really meant "potassium hydroxide" ;) I'd recommend replacing some portion of your butters or stearic acid with a liquid oil. The other option is to reduce your NaOH down to .5oz, putting the additional .45oz into the KOH.
