● Avocado Oil- it is obtained from the pulp of the avocado and used in soap for its

moisturizing and conditioning properties. It has a high percentage of fatty acids that do

not react with lye to form soap, thus leaving luscious skin loving oil in your soap bar. It is

so rich in Vitamins A, B, D and E. It does not make a hard bar of soap so is generally

used at 20% or less in recipes.

● Castor oil, which is process from the seeds of the tropical castor oil plant, it has a unique

factor which makes the oil thick which one can deduce would lead to a hard soap bar

however this is not the case when used more than 10% in soap recipes.

● Coconut oil- this oil is made from the white meat inside the coconut and helps to make a hard bar, although the lather is not consistent it is best used in conjunction with other oils.

stable and will increase the shelf life of your oils.

● Palm oil - is used to create a hard bar with a stable lather, and is often used to make

something more long-lasting and resistant to melting. Using palm oil in your soap will

give you a bar that has a moderate amount of cleansing and conditioning properties.
