Salt Master Batch Oils #2 recipe – “Everything But the Kitchen Sink”

I had several oils (& butter) that I bought for specific projects I never got to and figure I probably won’t in the future. I wanted to use them before they got too old (although I freeze almost all my oils & butters to retard the aging process).

The main ingredient for salt soap is 70% Coconut oil, the other oils/butters are used to enhance the soap qualities. I had some Babassu Oil, which can be used as a substitute for coconut oil (although a costly one), which I included, as well as leftover bits of other oils.

Conclusions:
In hindsight, I question even the use of Palm oil in this soap. Palm & Coconut are used to harden the bar, and with all the salt, these bars are quite hard. I think next time I will skip the Palm and replace it with more butter (for a total of 10%) and some other skin loving oils.
