Soap Quality

I am so sorry to hear about your loss and hope that things will go well for you.

My question is. Is there any recipe to get the cleansing, conditioning, Bubbling, harness and creaminess at an optimal level.

What percentage is considered ideal. I have played around with the recipes and the cleansing and bubbling and creaminess stays around 20% the hardness and conditioning is way up and my INS value is between 156 and 160. What are the ideal oils to use for optimum levels.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

I wish I could tell you that there is an optimum level but I'm afraid I can't.

Everyone has such different needs and preferences when it comes to skin care and cleansing that what is optimum for one person will not be for another.

This is where you need to experiment with recipes and test the soaps you make. Make notes on what you like about them and what you don't. Then you tweek your recipe until you get one that really works for your skin type.

Good luck,
