Single Oil Soap – Hydrogenated Soybean Oil
|What have you thought about the single oil soaps? Have you learn a lot? I know I have. I wanted to test another highly popular oil in soap making. Today I will be testing Hydrogenated Soybean Oil. Come join me in the test kitchen for this next single soap!
I didn’t have any problems when mixing this soap. It went smoothly with no accelerated trace. When I went to cut my soap after 24 hours, it was very firm. It also crumbled a little when I cut the soap. It made a nice hard, white creamy bar.
When I went to the sink to test this soap it was very creamy. There were some bubbles but not anything I would classify as lather. I do like how hard the soap was but I am not a fan of how it crumbled when I cut it. Otherwise, I think it made an excellent bar of soap that cleaned and was also creamy. What do you think of a bar like this?
Weigh the Hydrogenated Soybean Oil into a microwave safe container. Heat until warm. This took about 3 minutes for me. Add the lye to the water to for a lye solution. Mix the oils and lye solution and blend until trace is achieved. Pour into a mold and allow to sit for 24 hours. Enjoy!
