Liquid coconut oil for cold process?

by Wende
(Kaolna, Iowa)

My husband just bought me 50lbs. of Coconut oil which was really nice of him but it so happens that it is in a liquid form. On the label it states that it is specially formulated for food service and had anti-foaming agents added.


My question is will this work for making cold process bars? It was a bit exspensive and I would like to return it if it won't work. I've only used the solid coconut oil in the past and it worked great.

Answer:

One of the great things about coconut oil is the fact that you get a great lather from soap that is made with it.

Since this oil has had anti-foaming agents added to it, you aren't going to get this great benefit.

Personally, I would return the oil and get the hard soap grade coconut oil.

Good luck,
Cathy

I would agree with the comment on Coconut oil. The lathering qualities are very important for anyone using handmade soap.
