how much cocoa butter


Recommended Posts

I have used 5 to 10% with wonderful results. The chocolate fragrance does not linger in the soap but it sure does make a great bar. Some literature suggests that anything beyond 5% is a waste but frankly the cost of it keeps me from overdoing any butter or luxury oils. HTH

My regular formula uses 7% of the non-deodorized CB. No scent comes through but the CB adds a wonderful quality to the lather. As for coloring with cocoa, watch out for dirty looking lather... Used very sparingly it provides a nice deep chocolate color, but my friends get skeeved out about the brown suds.
