Nut-Free Bliss: Luxurious Soaps for Everyone to Enjoy

Gone are the days when those with nut allergies had to miss out on the delightful indulgence of handcrafted soaps. The good news? Many amazing soap makers are crafting stunning, effective soaps completely free of any nut derivatives, allowing everyone to experience the joy of pampering their skin naturally.

But why choose nut-free soap? Beyond inclusivity, there are several compelling reasons. Some individuals have mild to severe allergic reactions to nut oils, even in trace amounts. Additionally, for those with sensitive skin, avoiding potential irritants like nut oils can promote a calmer, healthier complexion. Moreover, nut-free options often substitute wonderful alternative oils rich in beneficial vitamins and antioxidants, nourishing your skin without compromise.

From creamy oatmilk-infused soaps to luxurious olive oil bars, the variety of nut-free soaps available is vast and exciting. Explore options bursting with floral fragrances, calming herbal scents, or invigorating citrus notes. Discover soaps enriched with soothing aloe vera, moisturizing shea butter, or detoxifying charcoal, finding the perfect formula to meet your unique needs and preferences.

So, embrace the freedom of choice and pamper yourself with the luxurious lather of nut-free soaps. Your skin will thank you, and you’ll be contributing to a more inclusive and accessible world of handcrafted beauty.

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
  • Blanket

INGREDIENTS

  • 360gr (12 ounces) Olive Oil
  • 270gr (9 ounces) Babassu Oil
  • 150gr (5 ounces) Castor Oil
  • 90gr (3 ounces) Cocoa Butter
  • 60gr (2 ounces) Shea Butter
  • 60gr (2 ounces) Avocado Oil
  • 135gr (4.5 ounces) Lye
  • 375gr (12.5 ounces) Water
  • 1,5gr (0.05 ounce) Lavender Essential Oil
  • 1,5gr (0.05 ounce) Lemongrass Essential Oil

1. HEAT THE FATS/OILS:

In a large pot, combine the olive oil, babasu oil, castor oil, cocoa butter, shea butter and avokado oil. 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, carefully add the lye crystals to the water and stir until dissolved. 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 lavender and lemongress 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.

7. 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.
