    I would like to use this formula for liquid soap. What changes must be made for this to work?

    68 oz     ORGANIC COCONUT OIL,

    64 oz    ORGANIC HEMP OIL 

    60 oz     ORGANIC OLIVE OIL

    20 oz     CASTOR OIL

    3 oz    Rosemary extract

    .5 oz     SHEA BUTTER

    .5 oz     COCOA BUTTER

    The three ingredients I would question would be Palm, Shea and Cocoa Butters.  Castor oil makes a highly water soluble liquid soap, Olive oil is also a fine ingredient for liquid soap because it’s Oleic Acid content is in the 80%-82% range and Coconut oil is also great because of it’s mid-chain fatty acids that help create lather.  I remember that Hemp seed oil didn’t have a very nice smell to it though!  Again, I would question the use of Palm because of it’s higher chain fatty acids, especially if you want to make a clear product!

    The above formula is one I use to make bar soap, but I want to alter it to work for liquid soap with Potassium Hydroxide.

    You’ll be better off on a dedicated soap making forum.

    I work with a formulation and development company who has done many soap lines. Let me know if we can be of assistance.
