Oatmeal & Goat’s Milk Soap Recipe

oatmeal and goat's milk soap So in a “what’s in my shower this week” report – I got out one of the last remaining bars of this batch of oatmeal/goat’s milk soap. After unmolding, it continued to turn an even deeper brown due to the vanilla-containing fragrance oil. The oatmeal gives a wonderful light scrub. Much gentler than other natural exfoliants. This week, I’m getting back into the soap kitchen with two “food-inspired” batches – one cold process and the other melt and pour. Stay tuned!

Oatmeal & Goat’s Milk Soap Recipe

oatmeal and goat's milk soap Soaps that contain goat’s milk and oatmeal are good for your skin. The goat’s milk contains extra fat, vitamins, alpha-hydroxy acids and minerals; the oatmeal is a great natural exfoliant. This recipe uses them both, but uses them in two layers, along with a vanilla-containing fragrance oil to make a soap that’s visually cool, and wonderful in the shower.

Making Soap with Cow’s Milk Butter

I am always one for a soap making adventure!

I recently got to read through The Natural Soapmaking Handbook and the companion recipe book, “The Natural Soapmaking Cookbook.” One of the oils that they mention and feature in several recipes is butterfat from cow’s milk. Yep…the stuff you have in your refrigerator. I had always heard that butter in soap smelled really bad – like bad parmesan cheese or vomit. (It’s due to the butyric acid in them.) But I decided to try it anyway! The jury is still out on the smell – it may just be my imagination – or it may really have a slight icky smell. I’ll report back after it’s had some more time to cure.
