Well, here I am again. Giving the soap-making another shot. For those of you who have not followed me thus far, my first attempt and cold-process soap-making was an epic fail. But, if at first, you don’t succeed…So to refresh your memory, here’s a photo from my first attempt.
Yeah, can’t get much worse right? That’s what I figured.
The new recipe that I tried uses lard, olive oil, and castor oil. Lard (rendered fat) is great for the skin. It won’t clog pores and it resembles the structure of human skin cells which are composed of saturated fats. Lard soap is closer to our skin than plant-based soaps. Ready for some pics?
So I’m letting set up now and will be ready for the cut soon. Let’s cross our fingers!
See you next time. Until then, be peachy!
