Every player has an important role

According to Shakespeare, "All the world's a stage". On the stage of soap making, there are many players, each with an important role. Here you see three of the players: Cocoa Butter, Coconut Oil and Shea Butter. Each player imparts different qualities to a bar of soap. A bar can be customized by using various combinations of oils and butters in a recipe.

🧼Cocoa Butter contributes to bar hardness, is very conditioning and helps produce a stable lather.

🧼Coconut Oil adds cleansing properties to soap and creates lather with large bubbles. If a soap recipe is heavy on coconut oil and not superfatted (superfatting explanation for another day😉) this will result in a bar that is harsh on the skin and drying.

🧼 Shea Butter has great moisturizing abilities and adds a creamy, richness to the soap.

As I mentioned, these are just a few of the key players. I enjoy working with different combinations to produce balanced bars, each with their own characteristics, that's are beneficial for your skin.

Put the lime in the Coconut

So it all started with some left over soap "peas" I had made for Peas in a Pod baby shower favors.  I knew I wanted to make use of these left over soaps but couldn't think of anything fun or interesting.  After a week on an island and drinking Coconut water (and Piña Coladas) straight from a Coconut I had an epiphany!  I came home and decided to put these soap balls to use as "lime" and create a coconut soap made with Coconut Milk.  Besides the "lime" embeds the soap is also scented with Lime Essential Oil.  The brown "coconut shell" was created with ground walnut shell and I sprinkled a a few coconut flakes on top just for decoration.
