Stephanie submitted her milk soaps for our Milk Soap Challenge. She used the Half & Half method with Soy Milk and it turned out beautifully. Guess what? I’ll bet if she tries buttermilk again, it will turn out perfectly!
I decide to try a soy milk for the first time, it was alot of fun. I had tried buttermilk but didn’t have much luck with it.
Canola oil 11oz
Coca Butter 2oz
Coconut Oil 8oz
Olive Oil 11 oz
Soy Milk 6oz
Lye 4.5 oz
Tea Tree EO 1 oz
I first mixed water and lye together using the half and half method in mind. Let the water and lye cool to 110 degrees. While waiting I mixed oils together to 110 degrees. Then added the lye mixture to the oil mixture. Use hand blender to light trace then add room temperature soy milk. Mix to medium trace and add Tea Tree EO. Mix well and pour into an empty milk carton. After sitting for 24 hrs. I unmolded the soap and it turn out great, did have some little are bubbles here and there. I love the way it turned out. I think I am getting the hang of soap making after all!

That soap looks great. I like the ecru color you got with the soy milk.
