Answer:

Using Coconut and olive oil will actually produce quite a hard bar of soap. I would suggest using using around 30% coconut oil, 5% castor oil and 65% olive oil. Use around a 5 - 8 percent lye reduction and water at about 33%.

It will talk longer to reach a full trace and may take a day or so longer to harden up enough to cut.

Happy Soaping,
Cathy
