If you were forced to present your "perfect bar of soap" recipe, what would it be? After returning to soap making, I've been looking around to make some oil substitutions from my usual recipe. My final analysis: there is nothing new under the sun. An example of oil substitutions can be found here: https://www.soapqueen.com/bath-and-...ow-to-substitute-oil-in-cold-process-recipes/ The conclusion I have come to is that I already have the perfect recipe. It is Palm Coconut Olive Bees wax and a couple of luxury oils, one of which has to be Castor. Lard can be used to replace (or modify) the palm oil. How about you? Do you dare hold up your perfect recipe to the Forum's scrutiny?
