Hello friends, May I ask you to take a look at recipe I am working on?.
Olive Oil 330g
Castor Oil 110g
Coconut Oil 320g
Palm Oil 240g
Batch size is 1000 with 38% Water = 380g and 143grams of Lye with a 5% discount.The INS value is 162 according to the lye calculator
I wanted this batch as close to natural as possible, therefore have added no fragrance. I also placed about 1/2 tsp of TD just to whiten the batch a little.
Could you please see if you think this batch is on track for me.
My purpose was to create a fairly conditioning bar, with good bubbles and creaminess, cost was also on my mind, hence using the coconut and palm which is cheaper here than olive oil.
I am so grateful just to have another set of eyes on this recipe,for some reason I am just feeling a little uneasy about it.
I have to make this recipe into a lot of smaller items, such as teddy bears and love hearts, so its important it will remove easily from my moulds etc. I really can't afford to have this sticking or anything.
I can't tell you how much I appreciate this, and just how helpful you have been thus far.
The recipe looks good on paper but I do suggest making a test batch to see if it is what you are looking for and will remove nicely from your small soap molds.
