Egg Soap

Recently my husband was teaching me how to make Tomato Eggs, a Chinese dish that is common for lunch or dinner. As I learned to cook a new dish, I couldn’t help but wonder how a soap would turn out if you added an egg. Would it affect the lather? Make a bar of soap pamper the skin more? Make a better shampoo bar? To answer these questions, I decided that I should make a batch of soap with an egg.

Since I know eggs mix really well with oil due to my experience baking, I decided to remove 2 ounces of oil to mix with my egg. This mixture I will add when light trace begins. By adding the egg at this point, I prevent the burning of the egg proteins and acceleration of the soap.

Q.S. Egg

Weigh all of the oils into a microwave safe container. Heat gently until liquid. Add the Sodium Hydroxide to the water to form a lye solution. Remove approximately 2 ounces of oils from the melted oils. Add the egg to the removed oil and mix well. Allow the oils and the lye to cool to a lower temperature. We do not want to have the soap overheat and volcano especially since we are adding a temperature sensitive ingredient. Mix the oils and lye solution and blend until a light trace is achieved. Add the egg and oil mixture and mix well. Pour into a mold and allow to sit for 24 hours. Cut the soap. Allow the soap to cure. Longer curing time will result in a harder bar. Enjoy!

Note: When you cut the egg soap it will have a stinky egg smell to it and we noticed a greenish discoloration in the center. This smell will go away after allowing the soap to cure! The color in the center of the soap will also go away.
