Homemade Hydrating Milk Soap

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of DairyPure Milk. All opinions are 100% mine.

Milk is full of many great and beneficial proteins like lactic acid which is proven to calm and hydrate, leaving your skin softer. That’s why so many beauty products are made with milk.

  • 4.3oz Lye
  • 22oz Olive oil
  • 8oz Coconut oil

1. Freeze milk in ice trays to prevent burning proteins. This works best with natural milk with less additives.

2. Wearing gloves and goggles, add lye to frozen milk. Stir until dissolved

3. In heavy duty container, combine oils.

4. Drizzle lye mixture into oils. Blend 4 or 5 minutes until your batter is thick enough to hold its shape.

7. Un-mold soap and slice into bars. The longer they cure, the more solid they will get.

I have always wanted to make my own soap! This sounds like a soap that will replenish my skin.

I never tried to make my own soap before! Handling lye sounds dangerous!
