Does everyone use PKO??


Recommended Posts

I have always used PKO and palm.

What do you think would happen if I cut the PKO out and only used palm??

I am thinking my bars wont be as hard..but I am just about out of PKO and need to soap like a mad woman,

any suggestions??

If you dont use PKO in every soap recipe..what do you use to make your bars hard???

Both CO and OO get quite hard (tho OO can take a while). Lard too gets very hard.

One of my basic recipes is CO, OO, Palm & Canola. It gets plenty hard.

I've never used PKO in any soaps. Just been using palm - I really like the "no-stir" palm from Columbus Foods! It's very much easier to work with than the regular palm.

One of these days I might give PKO a go, but haven't had the need for it yet.

I don't use any animal fats in my soaps. Just a personal preference plus a business decision. Made one batch with lard early on in my soaping and didn't like it. Though I have used some marvelous bars made with lard by soapers here! :yes:

I don't use palm or pko in any of my soaps. As long as I use about 60% olive it comes out fine. I stopped using palm when I read about the deforestation of the rain forests. My soaps don't seem to suffer from the lack of palm. And it's money I can spend on other oils.
