Carrier Oils

Oils are an essential ingredient when making soap. Individual oils are composed of different proportions of various fatty acids, all of which contribute different characteristics to the finished soap. The skill of the soap-maker is to combine these oils in often closely guarded recipes to yield the desired properties in the end product. Here is a list of common fatty acids and their resulting soap characteristics:

Lauric Acid: Hard bar, excellent cleansing, lots of fluffy lather, can be drying to skin
Linoleic Acid: Conditioning, silky feel
Myristic Acid: Hard bar, cleansing, fluffy lather
Oleic Acid: Conditioning, slippery feel, kind to skin
Palmitic Acid: Hard bar, cleansing, stable lather
Ricinoleic Acid: Softer bar, conditioning, moisturizing, lots of fluffy, stable lather, kind to skin
Stearic Acid: Hard, long lasting bar, stable lather
