Hey there! I thought this would be the appropriate place to ask... does anyone know of a good reliable cp soap recipe that uses bacon fat? My father in law is a bacon addict & I'd love to make him some soap for Christmas using real bacony ingredients.  Wink

It's not so much as the recipe as the technique used to get the two colors of the bacon look.

There are a lot of bad recipes posted on the net so I would suggest learning how to use soapcalc to get your own benchmarks.  A lot of recipes online are not balanced and "formulated" by people who don't know what a good recipes should look like.  It's more than just throwing oils together. Oils are not interchangeable as they all have their own properties they bring to the finished product.  Never trust a recipe that gives you weights for liquids and lye on an online recipe.  Instead punch the numbers into a lye calc and figure them out yourself.   That way you know beyond a shadow of a doubt that your soap will not be lye heavy.  Also some are more experienced and are comfortable with working with less liquid.


Personally I'm not a fan of lard as the main base oil.  But I don't mind it as a supportive oil in a recipe.

You can buy bacon fragrance oil to up the anti and make your soap more realistic.

But this is a recipe I just punched into soapcalc that is nice and balanced.  I do tend to use more castor than most other soapmakers but the reason is because it's both moisturizing while adding to the lather of the soap.  Unlike coconut oil that is drying to the skin (when too much is used) while adding to the lather.  So it's a balancing act IMHO. 

26% Lard
26% Palm Oil
15% Coconut Oil
15% Castor Oil
8% Shea Butter
10% Olive Oil

Benchmarks 41
Cleansing 11
Conditioning 55
Bubbly Lather 24
Creamy Lather 44

Have Fun.....

I make soap and other "cosmetics" as defined by the FDA and in my spare time I sew.... Sewing is therapy for me in dealing with life stresses and my chronic pain.  When I hurt and can't sew, I plan what I want to sew.  I also have a great husband, three kids and three fur kids.....
