I find White Camellia Oil Soap pristinely beautiful....smooth, creamy and delicately white. Sometimes less is more and that holds true with this soap.
This palm free recipe produces a nice hard bar that has a great creamy lather. I left this recipe unscented and uncoloured for those with sensitive skin but feel free to embellish it to your hearts content.
Remember when selecting scents for this recipe to stick with ones that do not discolour the soap if you want to maintain the white colour of the bar.
If you want to increase the amount of coconut milk in this recipe, simply reduce the amount of water used to dissolve the lye and increase the milk to be added at trace.
Don't reduce the water too much though...if you want lots of coconut milk, fortify the milk with powdered milk instead.
