My Cold Process Video Tutorial: Shea Avocado Soap
30 oz. Palm
5 oz. VCO
5 oz. Castor
13.5 oz. Distilled Water
7.5 oz. Sodium Hydroxide (Lye)
1.Shea Avocado Puree:
1 fresh Avocado
10g Shea Butter
2g Phenoxyethanol (Preservative)
-Blend all of these together until a paste is formed,
2. Cucumber Extract
3. Shea Butter
Geranium, Cherry Blossoms, Milk
The reason why I put little amounts of Coconut oil is because coconut oil may dry the skin.
For Castor oil, too much of it may make the soap sticky.
Adding Phenoxyethanol (a non-paraben preservative) preserves the fresh avocado I will put in my soap.
Adding any natural or fresh ingredient to your soaps can actually discolor the soap into brown and
the fresh ingredient may create an odor that may be unpleasant after curing.
