100% pure Tallow soap with Quince juice - fragrance free

100% tallow soap, fragrance free

Stock Status: Sold Out

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.

It looks a bit funny - because of a chemical process called internal crystallisation which is just cosmetic - it's still good soap.
