I am speaking at the National Dairy Goats Association trade show coming up in October. I’ll be demonstrating cold process soap, lotion making and advanced cold process soap – all using fresh goatsmilk. I also have a little 45 minute talk on marketing for small businesses. It will be a full day!
To prepare, it seemed wise to make a couple refresher milk batches. I haven’t made goatsmilk soap for at least a year! This weekend, I made two batches of Goatsmilk Soap. This is the first batch. In the photo above, I am stirring the chilled, slushy goatsmilk to break up large chunks, prior to adding the lye.
The soap has been very lightly traced and separated it into three containers for a 3 color swirl. To ensure that I have plenty of time to work with the soap, I have not discounted the water at all and have a full 5% superfat.
Here is the soap, poured into the log mold. It ended up being 9 pours/layers so the color and swirl should go through the entire bar.
