In this recipe I only used 60% coconut oil, and found as you can see in the picture when you zoom in it crumbles a little around the bottom, but I also sprinkled salt in the bottom of the mold which may have contributed to the crumbling. The center of the bars are great, firm no crumbling at all.
This post does not go into the safety measures of cold process soap making, if you have never made cold process soap before please make sure you follow safety precautions when soaping.
This soap used 48oz of oils the percentages and oils used were
60% coconut oil, 76 degree
10% olive oil
10% Ucuuba Butter
10% Shea Butter
10% Avocado Oil
24 ounces of extra fine pink Himalayan sea salt (from SaltWorks)
20% Super fat
2 tsp buttercup Mica from brambleberry dispersed in 2 tbs of Fractionated Coconut Oil
As you can tell from the picture, I did an awful job of blending the colors in this soap. So although not beautiful, or perfect the soap works great. This soap does not dry you out in the shower, or leave you sticky. Overall the soap turned out ok. I think I will try this recipe again using 65-70% coconut oil, maybe take out avocado oil and not adding salt to the bottom of the mold and see if I like it even more. So far I like my Lemon Lime salt Bar recipe best.
