A friend contacted me and suggested that she wants to help in the marketing of my handmade soap. As my readers, you guys know that I like formulating recipes as much as designing the soap. So I came up with another line of soap that I haven't made, but I know has demand. Here is my version of palm and coconut free handmade soap.
|Molds used, lye solution, sugar solution, milk and the melted oils.|
This recipe included mostly Olive oil some Shea butter, Castor oil and Mango butter, because most of my products contain Mango butter, and I like the properties it contributed to the final product. This batch also contains goat milk to make it more luxurious. Since Coconut oil is omitted and it is the oil that produces most of the lather in most handmade soap, I added some sugar to give this soap recipe some lather as well.
The picture above show a few lighter colored bars, these were added with Titanium Dioxide to give it a whiter look. Titanium Dioxide is used in most white products including toothpaste and other personal and food products that are white. The soap batter started to thicken for me too that is why they are not as smooth on top. The darker soaps don't have the titanium dioxide and the batter was still thin when I poured them into the mold thus it is smooth.
I have four soaps above that are unscented and the rest is scented with a fragrance oil I will call "Belle" after the name of my friend. If she end up liking this batch. Belle will be her signature line and we will be developing lotions, etc with that fragrance.
Excited to get these babies out of the mold. Here is to hoping the friend will like everything the final product will be and a start to another line of KCK handmade products.
Thank you for visiting.
