Oat Milk Soap

I adore any soap with oatmeal in it, so making oat milk to use in soap has been on my to-do list for a while! To mix my lye solution, I used half of the water called for. I added the other half of the liquid as oat milk at trace. Unfortunately, the fragrance that I used accelerated; I know it was the fragrance and not the oat milk because the small portion of the soap what I kept unfragranced (for swirling) behaved beautifully. The acceleration meant that I was only able to quickly layer the soap instead of swirling it, but thankfully I had quite a bit of leftover unfragranced soap, so I was able to use it to texturize the top somewhat. The soap ended up gelling all the way through without any insulation. The fragrance I used was a dupe of Lush's Karma.

  1. I just love white and clean soap. It is so simple and beautiful. I just got a jar of oat milk a few days ago and my sister laughed when I told her that I´m not going to drink it, I´m going to make some soap :D

    1. Thanks Mo! Yes, I just used up the last piece not that long ago. The soap turned out to be very light and creamy, the oat milk gave it a really nice lather :)

  6. Did you already try the soap? Has it cured? I am very curious about oat milk performance and how does it differ to other vegetable and animal milks. What are your impressions?

    1. Hi Ksenija, yes we've almost used it up...I have a only a few slivers of this soap left. The oat milk was very nice in the soap, I would definitely use it again. I would say the properties were similar to what other milks add, the lather was nice and creamy on this one. It would be a nice milk alternative for vegan soapers too :)
