Cold Process Soap Recipes

Natural Shampoo Bar
 284 g Olive Oil
 255 g Coconut Oil
 199 g Castor Oil
 113 g Shea butter
 116 g Avocado Oil
 250 ml water (room temperature)
 133 g Caustic Soda Pearls
Macadamia Cold Process soap
 500 g Macadamia oil
 400 g sweet almond oil
 100 g beeswax beads
 350 ml water (room temperature)
 120 g caustic soda pearls
Rooibos Rush Cold Process Soap
For this recipe we are going to use rooibos tea instead of plain water. Make your tea as you usually would. So 1 to 2 teabags in 350ml hot water. Allow your tea to brew in the water and let it cool to room temperature. Remove the tea bags. Just make sure you have 350ml liquid left to go with your caustic solution (lye)
 250 g avocado oil
 200 g canola oil
 200 g coconut oil
 250 g olive pomace oil
 50 g shea butter
 350 ml brewed tea
 135 g caustic soda
Goat Milk Cold Process Soap
This recipe is just fab. I formulated it in approx 2006 and it’s still a hit with my clients. If you have access to fresh goat milk.. get it to freeze slightly in your freezer. If you have powdered goat milk.. mix it with water as directed on the tin. Then let it freeze slightly. It must have that icy look..shards of ice. But not solid ice.
 1000 g pomace olive oil
 350 ml goat milk (slightly frozen)
 120 g caustic soda pearls
 There is a particular reason why I prefer the milk to be slightly frozen..the fatty acids in the milk heat up really fast when the caustic is added to it.. so just to not let the goat milk be “burnt” I prefer it slightly frozen. you will notice that it will turn an orange colour when you have mixed the caustic with it.. that is normal..it will change in colour as it cures. You cannot go wrong with this recipe. I let this cure for 7 weeks.. but heck it is worth the wait.
Gentle baby Cold process soap
 800 g Shea butter
 100 g Jojoba Oil
 100 g castor oil

 Add your own essential oils and natural dyes if needed. Personally I leave it as it is.

Pure Castille Soap
If you are calling your soap pure castille soap and its not made with this ..then you should not be selling your product as pure castille soap. Unfortunately the product castille soap has been left for ease of exploitation. Termed as natural, pure, well.. this recipe is really what it is. Pure castille soap. It is not supposed to be clear. It must be cured for at least 8 weeks. before use.
 1000 g pure extra virgrin olive oil
 280 ml water
 129 g caustic soda pearls
 Follow basic cold process soap making instructions. Please stick to your moral compass when producing. Dont improvise. Be proud of your products.

Cold Process Soap Basic Method: Add caustic soda pearls to water.
Stir gently to dissolve. Do not splash.

Allow solution to cool down to 43 degrees celcius.
Simultaneously in a pot, warm your oils, butters, beeswax, once the oils/butters/beeswax is also at 43 degrees celcius add the caustic solution to the oils.
Commence blending until it starts thickening.
Blend with an electric blender until your mixture looks like thick custard..some call it trace stage, then add your essential oils and colourants.
For cold process soap I do recommend you use essential oils. If you are going to add fragrances and synthetic colourants I think you will be defeating the objective of making a 100% natural soap.
Pour your soap into moulds and allow to set.
Once set remove the soap from the moulds and allow the soap to cure for 4 -6 weeks.
I usually put my soap on a tray between two layers of cloth. This basic method will be your go to section at all times for all cold process recipes so I suggest you copy it and keep it close on hand at all times for making cold process soap.

Following I have provided you with several different recipes. If you are a beginner I would suggest you start with the lower cost of recipes just to get the knack of it and then up your game making some soap with the more exotic butters and oils.
Remember you can add your own additives to add different textures.
