Making soap with 100 % coconut oil

by Lori

I plan on making a batch of soap using only coconut oil with goat milk and lye.

Is there some reason I should not use only coconut oil?

Answer:

Coconut oil can be drying when used in large quantities in a soap recipe. I suggest using a higher superfat (lye discount) than normal to compensate. The goat's milk's fat will help as well.

Careful to not let the soap overheat and be sure to cut it as soon as possible. Coconut oil produces a very, very hard bar and can be quite hard to cut if left to cool too long.

Good luck,
Cathy
