Ingredients:

5 oz. cocoa butter
5 oz. shea butter
2 lb. 7 oz. palm kernel flakes
1 lb. 2 oz. sustainable palm oil
1 lb. 6 oz. olive oil
1 lb. 6 oz. rice bran oil

36 fluid oz. distilled water
15 oz. lye (sodium hydroxide)

1/2 Cup goat milk powder
1/2 Cup colloidal oatmeal

Instructions:

This recipe uses three of my wooden soap molds and will yield 30-36 bars depending on how you cut them.

To make this soap you will need to follow your basic cold process soapmaking instructions, taking all necessary safety precautions and weighing your ingredients – soapmaking oils, butters and lye.

To incorporate the goats milk powder, you will need to follow my article on How to Make Goats Milk Soap the Easy Way. Once your melted soapmaking oils and lye-water have cooled, you will measure out and add the goats milk powder and colloidal oatmeal to your cooled oils BEFORE you add the lye-water. Use your stick (immersion) blender to mix thoroughly. Once these ingredients have dissolved, then you can mix in the lye-water.

At trace, pour the soap into your lined molds, then cover and insulate for 24 hours. If you wish to use a fragrance, you can add up to 6 oz. of fragrance oil or up to 3 oz. of essential oils at trace. Once you unmold your soaps, cut into bars, and allow soaps to cure for a minimum of three weeks before using.

By Susanne
A lot of people use goat milk in their soap or butter milk and I happened to walk into some goat buttermilk at the supermarket… That I had to try!
For this soap I used
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

Add the lye to the slushy-frozen (goat) butter milk. To keep the color of the soap as light as possible keep the lye container in an ice-bath as well. Prepare recipe as usual (I do DBHP). After cook add warmed honey at 2.5 % of the amount of oils. For the amounts given above this would be 25 g. Some shredded calendula petals make nice speckels in the soap.

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.
