I keep hearing that goat milk soaps all turn tan coloured.
Mine don’t. Some turn tan... others turn yellowy... others are creamy white. I can’t quite figure out why some turn out a nicer white than others!
These three are all no-palm soaps. In all three soaps, 100% of the liquid in the white/tan part is goat milk. I froze it first and added the lye to the frozen goat milk.
After all my experimenting for a great palm-free soap, my favourite recipe so far is the one with the heart in the middle. It's smooth, creamy, bubbly, sudsy, long-lasting, hard, the smell stays & it cleans well. I am so pleased!! I am now using this recipe as my base recipe, with variations. So for these three soaps, you can notice that the heart one is the whitest. The only difference is that for the liquid oils, it has Olive, Castor and SWEET ALMOND oil. The other two only Olive and Castor oil. The bottom one looks more yellowy, the one on the left looks more tan. The only difference between these two is that the one on the left has more Castor Oil.
So, it appears that sweet almond oil makes for whiter goat milk soap, and the more castor oil, the more tan coloured?
The middle one is the heart one
I have added another soap here. The top one is one of my older soaps and has palm oil, but again you can see that it appears whiter, and it has Sweet Almond Oil.
I have been told that Titanium Dioxide produces a nice white, and is natural. I actually have purchased some but have not found I have needed to use it yet.
Any comments on goat milk soap colour or Titanium Dioxide or anything at all welcome!
