I am starting my DIL baby shower soaps tonight and would like everyone opinion on the following recipe:

Olive oil 60%

PKO 30%

Castor 10%

Baby Powder for the FO

TIA

I am by no means an expert but that seems like a soft bar that would take a long time to cure. I ran it thru the Soo's- this is what I got based on a 3 lb batch with 1 oz of FO per lb. It looks to be a very moisturizing and nice lather.

Hardness: 16

Cleansing: 6

Conditioning: 81

Fluffy: 33

Stable: 10

Iodine: 77

INS: 112

That's what I saw when I ran it last night. Even 100% olive oil will get rock hard over time. The addition of castor and PKO up the cleansing and bubbles.

Should be a nice, gentle, mild soap. Perfect for a baby shower!
