Single Oil Soap - Golden Jojoba Oil

I wanted to start this week off by a very interesting single oil soap. Let’s take a look a Jojoba Oil. Jojoba is a liquid wax that is harvested from a desert shrub. This oil is very different because it is also fairly stable. Let’s go see what happens when we make a Jojoba Oil Soap!

I really struggled to get this soap to trace. It seemed to take forever. Granted, ten minutes is not forever but compared to most soap I make, that is a long time to spend mixing. I poured it into the soap mold and let it sit for 24 hours. When I came back, it had separated! Frustrated, I went to got talk to Tina in out Technical Support Department. I learned that Jojoba has a lot on non-saponifiable oils and that this is why it had separated. I hadn’t done anything wrong, it was just the nature of the oil.

When I went to the sink to test this soap it started off feeling oily. There were not any suds or even an occasion bubble. It did feel very creamy and while I was using it, I thought how it might make a nice scrub. I did notice that the soap after being made, had a funny, smokey, herbaceous odor to it. Not bad, just not something I would use a fruity scent with.

I would make a scrub with this soap. I would add either salt or sugar and stir well 24 hours after the soap had been made. With this type of scrub, you get the benefit of a soap, a scrub and a massage oil! The un-saponified oils would get to stay behind after a good cleaning and exfoliation. I might even make a soap that is half Coconut, half Jojoba soap. That would be fun, what do you think?
