Why vegetable Soap oils are perfect for your beauty?

Soap oils are the base of handmade soap making. Donkey milk Soap is made by the chemical reaction that occurs when mixing fatty acids – vegetable oils, lye (NaOH for bar soap, KOH for liquid soap), and Donkey milk. Lye acts as the chemical emulsifier that bonds fatty acids with donkey milk molecules by generating heat. This process is called saponification. Soap cannot be made without lye.

Why vegetable Soap oils are perfect for your beauty?

Each soaping oil has its own fatty acid composition, and these fatty acids provide finished soap with important characteristics. The following are the most common fatty acids found in soaping oils/butters along with the qualities they provide in a finished bar of soap.

The variety of soap making oils available today is literally mind boggling!

Before you even start, you need to decide what it is you want from your soap. Do you like soap that has a big bubbly lather? Perhaps you prefer your soap to have a thick and creamy lather.

Or maybe lather means nothing to you and you’re more concerned with a soap that is super gentle for sensitive skin.

What are the characteristics  of soap oils?

Lauric Acid: Provides hardness, cleansing, and bubbly lather.

Linoleic Acid: Provides conditioning

Myristic Acid: Provides hardness, cleansing, and bubbly lather.

Oleic Acid: Provides conditioning.

Palmitic Acid: Provides hardness and a creamy lather.

Ricinoleic Acid: Provides conditioning, bubbly lather, and a creamy lather.

Stearic Acid: Provides hardness and a creamy lather.

Why Olive Oil, Coconut oil, Palm oil, Castor oil?

Castor Oil

Ricinoleic 90%

Linoleic 3-4%

Oleic 3-4%

Contributes to: fluffy lather, stable lather, conditioning, moisturizing, quicker

trace, softer soap. Often used to superfat soaps. Castor oil is unique in being almost entirely composed of ricinoleic fatty acid, found in no other oils and possessing a high affinity for water molecules. This makes it an excellent humectant, attracting and holding moisture to the skin. Castor oil should be used at low percentages to avoid overly soft soaps. Also often used in balms, shampoos, hair oils, and other thick emulsions for the skin and hair.

Coconut Oil,  76 deg.

Lauric 39-54%

Myristic 15-23%

Palmitic 6-11%

Capric 6%

Oleic 4-11%

Stearic 1-4%

Linoleic 1-2%

Contributes to: soap hardness, fluffy lather, quicker trace. Coconut oil makes soaps lather beautifully but can be drying when it makes up an overly large portion of your soap’s fats. It will make a very hard, white bar of soap that lathers well even in very hard water – even in sea water. Coconut oil is light and not greasy and is resistant to spoiling. Used in skin care formulations, coconut oil is emollient, moisturizing, conditioning and protecting to the skin. This oil is solid at room temperatures under 76 degrees and liquid at higher temperatures.

Olive Oil

Oleic 63-81%

Palmitic 7-14%

Linoleic 5-15%

Stearic 3-5%

Contributes to: soap hardness, stable lather, slippery feel, conditioning, moisturizing,  Olive Oil attracts external moisture to your skin, helping to keep skin soft and supple. Traditionally “Castile” soap was made using only olive oil, but the term has loosened now to include soaps that have olive oil as a major proportion of the oils in them.

Palm Oil

Palmitic 43-45%

Oleic 38-40%

Linoleic 9-11%

Stearic 4-5%

Myristic 1%

Contributes to: soap hardness, stable lather, conditioning, silky feel, quicker trace.  Palm oil makes a hard bar that cleans well and is also mild. It is a good substitute for animal tallow in all-vegetable soaps. Palm oil is processed from the flesh of the fruit of tropical oil palm plants. This oil is solid at cool temperatures, becomes slushy at warm temperatures and a golden, clear liquid at higher temperatures.

These oils are carefully blended together to produce a superior handcrafted soap.

Each of these oils is chosen for its special characteristics that it gives to the soap.
