Re:excessive sweating when using soap! - 2009/03/31 21:42 Welcome lala02,

Making single oil soaps with the oils you have listed will in my opinion not give you very good soaps. I've heard that pure olive oil soap is very mild and good for babies and such but not much lather and the "slimey" effect that you report. I think you would be pleased making cold process soap with a combination of oils. Taking into consideration the different qualities the oils will give to the soap you make. I would suggest you look over this website:

http://www.soapcalc.com/

There are others on the net but this one will give you an idea of what qualities the different oils contribute to the soap. I have settled on one basic recipie and I along with my customers are happy with the resulting soap. Please feel free to ask questions here. Lots of experienced soapers around here.

Saponious...
