Avobath In The Pot

Always up for a new challenge so when I received a request for an Avocado base soap I quickly studied what might work and this is what my friend who likes playing with food recipes and I came up with.
Love pictures of a newly molded soaps and I got the lighting just right for this one.  Ingredients suggested was of course Avocado oil and Sweet Almond oil.  I found a recipe online with Palm oil, Palm Kernel oil and I added my favorite ingredients Mango Butter and Coconut oil.
Colors used were woodland green, stained glass yellow and titanium dioxide.    Additives added were my newly found favorite Tussah silk, colloidal oatmeal and kaolin clay.
Fragranced with Avobath and we used the "in the pot" swirl for this batch.
The hubby described the scent as "lemony clean".  I liked the creaminess of the look and the glide of the soap loaf.  It is so shiny and smooth.  But with tiny specks of white which we realized (after watching the video) was due to the fact that we did not do enough blending after we transferred the titanium dioxide to the main soap batter.  Since I add titanium dioxide only for making the soap white, let's just pretend the specks were intentional.
Over all we are happy with what we produced.  Can't wait for this batch to completely cure so we can check out how it will perform in the shower or bath.
Thank you for visiting.
