Goat Buttermilk & Honey Soap
575 g (57,5%) beef tallow
250 g (25%) sunflower seed oil
125 g (12,5%) coconut oil
50 (5%) castor oil
335 g goat buttermilk
137 g lye at 5% discount
The combination of the buttermilk and the honey made the soap a very warm golden yellow. I didn’t use any coloring or scent, the honey makes it quite sweet smelling though. Lather is really great and leaves my skin very soft.
This recipe makes 10 bars of 110 g / 4 oz each.
