Here is our first goat milk soap! The key is to get the lye water to almost freezing temperatures before starting and to be sure to add it slowly. It’s worth the patience because goat milk adds wonderfull properties to soap. It makes for a moisturizing bar that contains many vitamins and lovely alpha hydroxy acids that help soften skin.

SAFETY FIRST! Remember to wear your safety equipment and mix the lye water outside. Tell everyone you live with that where you’re working is off limits. Give yourself enough time to complete the recipe.

EQUIPMENT

  • Kitchen Scale
  • Glass Bowls
  • Large spoon
  • Large stainless steel pot
  • Small zip-topplastic bag
  • Mold
  • Thermometer
  • Parchment Paper
  • Stick Blender (or hand mixer)
  • Rubber Spatula

INGREDIENTS

  • 270gr (9 ounces) Olive Oil
  • 150gr (5 ounces) Goat Milk 
  • 300gr (10 ounces) Tallow
  • 240gr (8 ounces) Coconut Oil
  • 120gr (4 ounces) Shea Butter
  • 60gr (2 ounces) Cocoa Butter
  • 138gr (4.6 ounces) Lye
  • 225gr (7.5 ounces) Water
  • 30gr (1 ounce) Vanilla Oil (not vanilla extract)
  • 15gr (0.5 ounce) Benzoin Essential Oil

PREP AHEAD:

Combine the water and goat milk in a large glass, plastic, or stainless steel container. Place the container in the freezer for 1 to 2 hours. It is okay if a slush forms, as long as it doesn’t freeze solid. The colder your milk-water, the lighter your soap will be after adding the lye.

1. HEAT THE FATS/OILS:

In a large pot, combine the olive oil, tallow, coconut oil, cocoa butter, and shea butter. Heat over medium-low heat until they are melted and incorporated. Remove from the heat and allow to cool to 100°F(38C°) to 110°F(45C°).
 

2. MIX THE LYE WATER:

Put on safety gear, including protective eyewear, a mask, gloves, and long sleeves. Outside, very slowly pour only about 1/4 of the lye crystals into the cold milk-water and stir until dissolved. Let cool for 20 minutes. Repeat until all the lye is dissolved into the milk-water. If the milk-water browns, don’t worry; your soap will just be darker. Allow to cool to 100°F(38C°) to 110°F(45C°). If the oils and lye water cool at different rates, you can use a cold- or hot-water bath in the sink.
 

3. PREPARE THE MOLD:

While the oils and lye water cool, line the mold with parchment paper.
 

4. COMBINE AND BRING TO TRACE:

When both the oils and lye water are 100°F(38C°) to 110°F(45C°), carefully pour the lye water into the pot of oils. Use a stick blender (or hand mixer) to mix for 1 to 2 minutes and then let the mixture rest for 4 to 5 minutes. Repeat mixing and resting until light trace.
 

5. MIX IN NATURAL ADDITIVES:

When the soap reaches light trace, add the vanilla oil and benzoin essential oils and blend for 30 seconds.

6. MOLD THE SOAP:

Pour the soap mixture into the mold, cover with a lid or parchment paper and insulate with a blanket for 24 hours. Do not insulate unless your house is below 24°C, in which case insulate by placing a towel around the outside edges of the mold to avoid a partial gel.
 

8. CUT AND CURE:

Remove the soap from the mold. If it seems too soft to remove, wait another 12 to 24 hours before removing. Cut the soap into 12  bars. Allow the bars to cure in a well-ventilated location for 4 to 6 weeks.
 

TIP: Milk can scald when lye is added. Placing the milk-water in the freezer until it’s very cold helps prevent this. Be sure to add the lye slowly. It is okay to really take your time, coming back every 20 minutes to add a little more. Milk can also make your batch get hotter than usual, so just insulate a milk recipe lightly with a towel if you’re concerned about getting a good gel for color.
