Mango Butter Soap:
(48 ounces / 3 lb oils)
16 oz olive oil (34%)
15 oz palm oil (31%)
14 oz coconut oil (29%)
3 oz mango butter (6%)
15 oz distilled water
6.76 oz lye
Sodium lactate (optional) 0.67 ounces added to lye water
Mango fragrance oil (I used Mango Sorbet from Nature’s Garden)
I stickblended titanium dioxide into my base oils, because I wanted a creamy-white color to the soap.
To color the mango portion: I dissolved yellow oxide in distilled water and added some non-bleeding liquid red color.
I didn’t gel this soap, because I wanted the soap to stay creamy looking. I put the soap in the freezer overnight to prevent gel.
The lather is very creamy; I will probably add a bit of castor oil next time to see if it boosts the bubbles.
