“Milky” Creamy Cleanser?
- Breast Milk Soap
- 2 cups vegetable oil (such as olive, coco, canola, cocoa butter, etc.)
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/4 cup lye (solid NaOH)
- 1 cup breastmilk
Heat oil to 115°F. In a glass measuring cup, add lye to water. (Not water to lye). When the solution reaches 115°F, add to oil. Stir until the mix is silky; then add milk. Color will change; it is normal. Stir until you get instant pudding consistency (this is what we call “trace”), approximately 60 to 45 minutes. Pour in moulds. You can use almost anything, like muffin tin or cookies tray. Take care to not use metallic material. Let sit 2 or 3 days, until you can unmould soaps easily. You have to let your soap “cure” 4 to 5 weeks, until it becomes neutral. You’ll get approximately 12 2-oz soaps.
