White Chocolate Soap Recipe
This recipe will make a great smelling soap if you use a food grade cocoa butter. The fragrance oil can be added to increase the smell of white chocolate.
40 ounces - Soybean Oil
16 ounces - Olive Oil
16 ounces - Coconut Oil
8 ounces - Palm Oil
8 ounces - Food Grade Cocoa Butter
30 ounces - Cold Distilled Water
12 ounces - Lye
1 ounces - Fragrane Oil of your choice
Once you have all of the ingredients measured out, you can begin to prepare the soap. Please note that all measurements are made by weight, not be fluid measurement. All of the oils and the water must be measured on a scale accurate to 0.2 ounces.
- Begin by mixing the olive oil, palm oil, coconut oil and soybean oil in a large stainless steel pan. Set the pan aside for now.
- Next, put the water into a glass or stainless steel bowl. Slowly add the lye into the water. I usually mix my lye and water outside to reduce the chance of breathing in the fumes. Be very careful with the lye crystals and with the lye/water mixture because both are highly corrosive.
- Stir the water/lye mixture until the lye has completely dissolved. The lye/water mixture should be warming and may even become hot. Once the lye has dissolved set the mixture aside in a safe place with a thermometer in it to measure the temperature.
- While the lye is cooling, you can now begin to heat the oils. You will heat the oil with to exactly 105 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Keep an eye on the lye mixture. You need to keep the oil at approximately 105 degrees Fahrenheit until the lye mixture cools to about 105 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Once the lye mixture is at 105 degrees and the oil mixture is at 105 degrees you can combine the two mixtures.
- You must now stir the mixtures together until trace. If you hand stir the mixture will take about 30 to 50 minutes to trace. If you use a stick blender it will take less than 15 minutes to trace.
- Once the mixture has reached trace, add any fragrance oils.
- Stir for a few more minutes to even out the added ingredients, then pour into soap molds.
- Leave the soap in a covered mold for about 48 hours before removing and cutting.
