Homemade Cold Process Egg Soap Recipe

This homemade cold process egg soap recipe is made with egg yolks. Eggs have long offered skin care benefits that include tightening skin, shrinking pores, and calming redness and breakouts. In cold process soap, egg yolks also help to create a rich, thick lather. If youre looking for something eggs-stra fun to create this Easter, try making this luxurious homemade cold process egg soap recipe in lieu of or in addition to traditional Easter eggs.

Ingredients:

3.92 oz. palm kernel flakes
3.6 oz. 76 melt point coconut oil
9 oz. palm oil
10.8 oz. pomace olive oil
4 oz. safflower oil
1.08 oz. castor oil
3.6 oz. rice bran oil

11.5 fluid oz. distilled water
4.9 oz. lye/sodium hydroxide

2 egg yolks
1 Tablespoon white kaolin (cosmetic) clay
2.25 oz. fragrance oil of choice, optional

Soap Notes:

Water as % of oils=32%
Superfat/Discount 6%

This homemade cold process egg soap recipe will yield 10-12 bars of soap approximately 4 oz. each depending on how they are cut.

There is zero egg smell to this cold process egg soap recipe once it has cured. I noticed a slight smell when I first cut my homemade egg soap into bars, however it had completely dissipated by the next day and smelled only like the fragrance oil Id used for my own batch.

Instructions:

To make this homemade cold process egg soap recipe, youll need to follow your basic cold process soapmaking method instructions. Be sure to take all proper safety precautions when working with lye including goggles and gloves.

Youll need to begin with eggs that are room temperature so I suggest removing your eggs from the refrigerator ahead of starting the soapmaking process. Crack the eggs open and separate the whites and yolk from two eggs. Youll only be using the yolks for this egg soap recipe so feel free to scramble up the whites in an omelet! Alternately you could simply use one egg in its entirety both the white and yolk for a somewhat different result. While egg yolks serve as a fat in a cold process egg soap recipe, the protein in egg whites are believed to have an astringent effect on skin.

Once your eggs have reached room temperature, you are ready to begin the soapmaking process.

Begin the soapmaking process for this egg soap recipe by first measuring out the distilled water in fluid ounces. (Alternately you can use rosewater in place of the distilled water if youre after a face specific soap.) Pour into a heat safe pitcher. Next, using a digital scale weigh out the lye. Slowly pour the lye into the water in a well ventilated area and stir until all the lye has dissolved. Set aside to cool.

Now weigh out the palm kernel flakes, coconut oil, palm oil, olive oil, safflower oil, castor oil and rice bran oil using a digital scale and combine in a stainless steel pot. Heat until all of the oils have melted, then remove from heat and set aside.

Next weigh out your fragrance oil, if youre choosing to scent your egg soap, and set aside. (You can also use essential oils in lieu of a fragrance oil, but youll want to use half the amount.)

Now measure out the kaolin clay and set aside.

Once the lye-water and soapmaking oils have cooled to around 90F youre ready to make this egg soap recipe.

Youll need to begin by tempering your egg yolks. To do this remove about a cup of oil from your cooled soapmaking oils into a cup or bowl. Add the egg yolks and mix well with a whisk, fork or even a stick blender. Set aside.

Now slowly pour the lye-water into the soapmaking oils. Mix with a stick blender until you reach a light trace, then add the clay, fragrance, and egg-oil mixture. Mix again until the soap starts to thicken again and all ingredients are fully blended into the soap, then pour the soap into your prepared mold.

Lightly cover the soap with cardboard but dont insulate the soap loaf.



After 24 hours your can unmold your homemade nut free soap loaf and cut it into bars. Allow your soaps to cure 4-6 weeks before use, then wrap and label as desired.

Want to try eggs in your own homemade cold process soap recipe? Give it a try! Just be sure to bring your eggs to room temperature and temper your eggs in your cooled soapmaking oils to avoid an eggy smell or scrambled eggs. then add the tempered eggs at a light trace.

you won't be down for the entire craft time. c'mon. you know you want two groups you can be sick forever. Wink

You say that, but it's been five years now Cheesy (I exaggerate - I'm usually fine. But careful. Tongue )
I DO want two groups, but I also want to try the god damn paper piecing hell things without panicking (because it's interesting! c'mon!), and get started on fixing the windows, and wallpapering, and playing some games, and being away over easter, and the whole full time job commuter thing, and maybe even sleeping every now and then. Cheesy If I could still live off of a strict diet of carbs and caffeine, I'd do it, but that only seems to make me MORE sick now. Lol I'm aging T_T

On the bright side, I did the thing! I'm writing up a pattern now. Well.. I'm over here ranting. But... I'm ALMOST writing up the pattern. I've got a blog tab open and everything.

Look, I'm not crazy:



Oh Melladh, that's beautiful!  Hope you feel better soon.  Smiley

This little guy has been sitting unfinished in a box of sculpey since 08 Shocked, I finally got around to finishing him.




I haven't actually baked him yet, the clay has been heat set with a heat gun though. I expect that the clay will scorch horribly once he has been baked properly(and likely crack), since he was sculpted with super sculpey  Sad. So I thought that I would take pics of him now while the clay is still a nice even color.


He is about 3 1/8in tall and about 3 1/2in long.
