I made my first batch of soy wax soap five weeks ago. I just tried it in the shower and while I really like the hardness of the bar, it made my skin a bit dry. Here's the recipe: 28% Olive 27% Sunflower HO 20% Soy wax 12% Coconut 8% Grapeseed 5% Castor oil 4% superfat // 38% lye concentration I used boiled down beer for the liquid and 1% citric acid dissolved in some of beer before adding to the lye water. Fatty acid composition of my soy wax: stearic acid (88%) and palmitic (10%). I used the "soybean, fully hydrogenated" setting in the soap calculator. My skin and I like high olive oil recipes, so I know it's not the 28% olive oil making my skin feel dry. And I always keep my coconut oil at 10 or 12% because I'm very sensitive to the cleansing effect of CO. Has anyone else had this experience with soy wax? Maybe I just need to give it a longer cure to get milder? Any insights would be very much appreciated!
