This recipe presumes that you have already made soap and are fully aware of the necessary safety precautions.
If you've never soaped with palm oil before, when melted, the stearic acid settles on the bottom. So it's important to melt the whole container first, stir for one full minute to get it thoroughly mixed before measuring out the amount needed for the recipe. OPTION: I melt palm oil as soon as it arrives and divide it into 20 oz rectangular plastic food storage containers so it's ready to go when needed.

NOTES: I use antioxidant ROE (Rosemary Oleoresin Extract) at 1 oz. ROE diluted in 2 oz. jojoba oil to make it easier to work with.
Use Rate: 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon PPO

PALM OIL I have made this recipe with both regular (solid) palm oil and red (liquid) palm oil that I buy from the African Market. The red palm produces a lovely orange to golden-colored bar depending on fragrance used. If made with GM powder, it produces a tan to brown soap.
WHITE KAOLIN CLAY (China clay) boosts lather & cleansing action, helps to "stick" fragrance, as well as laying down a foundation for colorants (No TD necessary).

I've provided the recipe in grams for our increasing number of Newbies familiar with the Decimal System. Also a Screen Shot for setting up SoapCalc in grams.

MOLD: This recipe makes four (5 oz) bars. You can use either an individual cavity, circle or rectangle, silicone mold or fashion one out of a milk carton to be cut to your preference after unmolding.
16 oz. oils X a factor of 1.37 produces 22 oz. soap (approx.)
500 grams oils X a factor of 1.37 produces 685 grams soap (approx.)


HAVE FUN & HAPPY SOAPING!
