Re:Substitute for Coconut oil - 2009/11/03 22:18 Perhaps I missed it but what percentage of coconut oil are you using? That could have a big influence on your recipie. Just curious. I use 15% coconut oil and 16% Palm kernal. But I use huge amounts of coco and unrefined shea butter as well as including jojoba, castor and avacado. I also use 25% olive oil. It works for me and my customers apparently.

Good to see some activity here. You folks are the greatest.

Saponious...

Re:Substitute for Coconut oil - 2009/11/04 06:35 I always use Mo's Wicked good soap recipe. It has 18oz of coconut oil. It doesnt sound like alot and most of us love the soap, but my daughter has very sensitive skin, so I need something without so much coconut oil I'm thinking. Thats why I was thinking to just change out coconut for palm kernal. What are your thoughts?

I love your soap!!

Re:Substitute for Coconut oil - 2009/11/06 18:55 golly, if your daughter has that sensetive skin I think I would try adding more palm oil and cut down on the coconut. Perhaps boost the olive oil as well. Jojoba oil is not cheap but I really love what it does for my soap. What many customers tell me is that they like how it rinses off clean without leaving any residue or film on the skin.

This is just Kentucky windage Diane but you asked for it. Good luck...

Re:Substitute for Coconut oil - 2009/11/08 18:00 Thanks Joe, I was was also thinking of bumping up the olive oil and I never thought about Jojoba oil. I think I will see what I come up with.

Thanks again everyone.
