Hey Banané Milk Soap Recipe

This cold process soap recipe comes from Aude Lemaire in France.  All her soap recipes are original with no added preservatives.

Follow the basic cold process instructions for milk soaps mixing the milk and lye as usual (mixture will turn orange), add the oils at a slightly warmer temperature 150°-170° to the milk/lye mixture and at trace, add the other ingredients. She used a cylinder mold – probably PVC pipe, but any mold can be used. This soap has a long shelf life.
