100% pure Tallow soap with Quince juice - fragrance free
100% tallow soap, fragrance free
100% tallow (As with all our tallow, the fat came from a farmer friend here in the Marlborough Sounds and was rendered by us - we do render all our tallow ourselves).
I put a lot of care into the recipe - because normally 100% tallow soaps don't lather very well, I added some sugar and citric acid, which helps to get more lather and also decided to use the dual lye method. I used mainly the usual sodium hydroxide (NaOh - lye), but added a part of potassium hydroxide (KOH - lye) as well. This is usually used for liquid soaps, but has the advantage here of producing a bit more lather than a 100% NaOh soap usually would.
Here I used quince juice instead of water (quinces from our garden in Picnic Bay).
I used no fragrance, to make this a soap very suitable for people with sensitive skin and skin problems.
