7 Pawz Posted September 4, 2014 Share Posted September 4, 2014 I'd like to cut down on the leftovers from some of my experiments, so I've decided to try the recipe for an experiment soap bar from The Soap Makers Companion, Susan Cavitch. It's about a 5 oz bar size. Since I try to stick to oils that I can get from the market, I decided to substitue vegetable shortening for the palm oil. The other oils are olive and coconut. I wanted a harder bar, so I thought about taking 2% on the discount. I did run the receipe through a lye calculator as well. I read online somewhere that 2% was a danger zone? I thought the more soaponified the oils were, the less likely rancidity would occur? Normally I use around 5% discount. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
