The colour of basic soap recipe

by Celia

I have just followed your Basic Soap Recipe exactly (without additives - I want to get the technique down pat first before I spend my money on essential oils) - the picture you have of yours is a lovely off-white colour (my desired colour) - mine is a strong mustard yellow colour (I am assuming from the Palm oil). So how do you get it to be white?


I'm guessing you used African Palm oil...the orange one? And perhaps Extra virgin Olive oil or pomace oil?

I simply use regular grade olive oil, coconut oil and the creamy white palm oil. That's it...nothing else.

If you want to make it whiter, try adding in some titanium dioxide.
