Soap recipe for baby soap and recipe for liquid goat milk soap
by Zene Kaye
Thanks for your advice on the palm oil. It is much appreciated. I just want to know if you have a very gentle recipe to make baby soap. I will add goat milk to the baby soap in stead of water. I guess I must superfat the recipe with 8%. I was thinking of using the following oils:
macadamia nut oil (i think the shelf life is short)
vitamin E oil(please advise how much Vitamin E oil I can use in the recipe)
Can I perhaps use grapeseed and Sweet almond oil also or what will you recommend will be the best for sensitive baby skin.
And then I also want to know if you could give me guidelines as to what types of oils I can use to make goat milk liquid soap. I also need to run the recipe through the lye calc and indicate that I will be using Potassium Hydroxide. I was thinking of using the following oils: However Jojoba oil from suppliers in SA is very expensive.
Please give me your inputs, making liquid goat milk soap will be a new challenge for me, but I love challenges and also have a passion for making soap!!
Thanks and many thanks for always assisting.
I don't have a recipe for a baby soap but people often use a castile soap (olive oil) recipe when they want a soap for babies. Olive oil soap is extremely gentle and is very often used for those with sensitive skin.
You could add other things to it but with babies and sensitive skin it is better to keep it simple.
As for liquid soap...I haven't tackled that yet so I can't advise you on it...sorry.
I would suggest getting Catherine Failors book "Making Natural Liquid Soap"
. It has a ton of information and recipes.
