Single Oil Soap -Cocoa Butter, Regular

I love Cocoa Butter. I have loved it ever since I was a little girl. I mean, who can complain about a butter smelling like chocolate?! In this single oil soap adventure, I wanted to test a soap with just Cocoa Butter. Come join me for this delightful adventure!

Q.S. Lye (Sodium Hydroxide)
Q.S. Water

Weigh the Cocoa Butter, Regular into a microwave safe container. Heat until warm. This took about 2 1/2 minutes for me. Add the lye to the water to for a lye solution. Mix the oils and lye solution and blend until trace is achieved. Pour into a mold and allow to sit for 24 hours. Enjoy!

I didn’t have any accelerated trace or any other problems when mixing the soap. However, I was startled to find that after 24 hours, the soap still smelled like chocolate! I had expected it to act more like Virgin Coconut Oil. If you remember, I tested the Virgin Coconut Oil in a soap, but the scent of the coconut did not come through. Imagine my surprise when this soap still smelled like chocolate!

The Cocoa Butter made a really hard bar of soap and it will get harder the more it cures. This is not a soap I would want to have edges. When I went to wash with it, I was surprised at how creamy it felt. I even got some random bubbles. It wasn’t lather but there were some bubbles there. My hands also felt clean after washing, not oily like with the Avocado Oil Soap. I might be tempted to make this soap again. It is a must try!
