Hai..
I would like to try a batch of cp soap using soy wax. Thank you so much @KiwiMoose and @Zany_in_CO for the information that you've provided regarding soy wax usage and all the threads were really interesting. Has anyone from India tried soy wax in their cp soaps? Veda oils provide soy wax for a reasonable price and I'm very much eager to try it. Waiting for a reply...Thanks in advance..

Hi
I recently made a test batch with soy wax and no palm. The bar was rock hard! I think I used it at 18%
Used soy flakes from Vijay Impex for that batch. Just ordered soy chunks from Bizpressions to test out to see if there is a difference

Okkayy. I just realized the soy chunks on Bizpression are 464 and not 415 😢
Soy wax 464 is mostly used for candles it seems.

Is the link to the COA and MSDS working for you on Veda oils btw?

Oh ok ok. Actually I tried to order soy wax from Veda but it is out of stock itseems and the links are not working too. I'll speak to the customer care and get back to u.

Oh ok

Oh ok. Did you use it?? What variety of soy wax does Vijay impex sell? Can it be used for soap making?

Going by the ingredient list it says "100% hydrogenated vegetable oil without mineral wax"

That's really great. What other oils do you use in your soap and if u don't mind sharing, could you please tell me how much % of soy wax you've used?

Veda oils - Soy wax COA
Ooh great! Thank you :)
This doesn't provide us with much information about the ingredient(s) unfortunately.

Going to make a test batch today, with soy chunks from Bizpressions. Will report back on that

Hi..I purchased soy wax from Art Vaatika Institute. The cost is ₹295/kg which is cheaper than vijay impex & Vedaoils. I'll be making a test batch next week. Will report back. COA has been attached🙂

sustainable palm oil.

I use a palm-free recipe:
20% soy wax, 20% CO, 20% RBO, 20% OO, 10% Shea butter, 5% each of castor and avocado.

The RBO, Avocado ( and OO somewhat) are quite high in palmitic fatty acid so help to increase that component of the recipe.

More recently I have been on a mission to reduce oleic gel or 'slime' in the finished product, so I have reduced the amount of OO to only 10% and added 5% more to the soy wax and 5% cocoa butter. I am happier with this product, but it does need to be gelled otherwise it can go crumbly.
