I'm so happy about these! For Christmas I had given my soap experiments away as gifts to family members. My mom has 8 siblings ranging from ages 49-62, and we are 22 first cousins, few married with kids, aged between 16-39. Some live nearby, some live quite far. You can imagine how many mini soaps I individually wrapped in brown paper, and labeled by hand lol I figured that's the best way to have other skin types test my soap. Bath water, weather and humidity are also something I took into account. They were all given variants that have been cured between 6-10wks. I have all tested them on myself. Some were better than others but I deemed them all good soap. Several of those cousins and aunts came back with reviews so far. Some haven't touched the soap, preferring to just look at them lol The winner was my rice soap. The first batch used water from the 2nd wash as my lye liquid, water from the boiling added after the cook for fluidity, and rice powder with the fats. This second batch is slightly different, but uses the same recipe that they liked. Instead of just the water from boiling, I cooked some extra and pureed the rice along with the water and added this to my emulsion. The rice powder this time was added with my coconut milk powder in hot water, that went in after the cook for fluidity. I'm sharing the recipe, and if you feel like trying it with different additives I'd like to hear how it went for you. Lard 30%, 15% each cocoa butter, coconut, rice bran and sweet almond oils, 10% shea. It has a very low cleansing factor as it was meant as a face soap, superfat at 5% (mine was turmeric infused olive oil). If you decide to HP, it cooked for under 20mins and molded beautifully at 2.8:1 water, with some reserved for after the cook. You can tell that the butterflies were molded last but were still fluid enough. Here's what it looked like right before molding, almost like custard. Thank you for reading!
