Soap with Ingredients from Cindy's Cupboard

I’ve only received one soap request from the Quick Gifts from Your Cupboard blog post

Cindy wrote, “I want to make a soap that has great lathering capability, is long lasting, moisturizing, and feels good on the skin.” As Cindy has a fairly standard soap maker’s cupboard, I decided to make a recipe that used a little bit of Mink Oil as a special luxury oil.

Recipe in ounces:
6 ounces Olive Oil
5 ounces Palm Kernel Oil or Coconut Oil
4 ounces Palm Oil or Hydrogenated Soy
1 ounce Mink Oil

2.22 ounces Sodium Hydroxide for 6% Excess Fat
4-6 ounces Water

Recipe in percentages:
37.5% Olive Oil
31.25% Palm Kernel Oil or Coconut Oil
25% Palm Oil or Hydrogenated Soy
6.25% Mink Oil

q.s. Sodium Hydroxide for 6% Excess Fat
q.s. Water

Due to the current cold winter temperatures in Idaho, make this soap with a starting temperature of 130° F. Any additives of clays or botanicals can be added. I would make a test batch without any additives other than fragrance if desired so you can check the lather. Make the soap and when you cut it the next day, take a small bar or sliver off the sink and try it out!

I hope you enjoy this soap!
