Cocoa butter M&P
This month we added organic deodorised cocoa butter at up to 10% of the weight of the M&P. The M&P still remained hard and able to maintain a lather.
To 1kg of white M&P soap base, we added 100g cocoa butter.
Melt the two together, add any fragrance and stir to blend. Only pour when it is thickening to prevent the cocoa butter from separating.
Oats can be added, 30g per kilo of M&P, for an exfoliating effect.
The pic to the right shows bars with cocoa butter, one with oats added.
