Nurture Soap Making Oil Blend from $29.00
This blend contains the following FOOD GRADE pre-mixed oils: Olive Oil - 40% Coconut Oil - 25% Organic & Sustainable RSPO Palm Oil - 25% Sweet Almond Oil - 5% Castor Oil - 5% The oils used to make this blend are the highest-quality oils we can find and are the best of the best! We recommend using this blend within one year of purchase. If you are frustrated with too fast of trace, oils behaving badly, or the time-consuming task of having to weigh and measure every oil that goes into a soap recipe, this blend is perfect for you! 3.9 and 8 pound sizes come in a plastic F-Style jug. Our 35 pound size comes in an easy to use jerrycan type jug with a large mouth opening and vent hole. This blend stays quite fluid at room temperature, so if you are storing your oils at room temp you can shake the jug to sufficiently mix the oils. To warm cold oils, place the jug in a warm water bath. We have found that filling the sink with warm water and placing the jug in the sink is sufficient to warm colder oils. This soap feels great in the shower. It is lower cleansing, high conditioning, with a thick creamy lather and lots of big bubbles!

Sodium Hydroxide (Lye) $14.99
Sodium hydroxide (lye) is an essential component of making soap. Our sodium hydroxide is in bead form. We chose beads because we find them easier to work with than flakes. They also dissolve more easily and flow out of the container with ease. If static is an issue, wipe your measuring container with a dryer sheet before filling with lye. Our lye is sourced in the USA and is 99.2% pure! You can't make soap without lye! In its pure form lye is caustic. Once added to oils and water, the process of saponification occurs and no lye is left in the final product (soap) if used correctly.

Sodium Lactate from $8.00
Sodium lactate is an amazing ingredient in all types of skincare. In soaps, it creates a harder bar that lasts longer in the shower. It also helps in making the unmolding of soaps easier from the soap mold. It is truly a must-have ingredient for any soap maker! Sodium lactate is a liquid salt derived from sugars such as beets and corn. We adore this ingredient and use it in all of our soaps at Nurture! The recommended usage rate of sodium lactate for cold process soaps is 1 teaspoon per pound of oils. Sodium lactate is also used in hot process soaps toward the end of the cook to create a more fluid soap that easier to get into the soap mold. When using sodium lactate, add it to your cooled lye water.
