A soap for purists: 100% tallow (The fat came from a farm 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.

Soap ingredients:

Saponified fats: 100% Tallow. Water, Glycerine*,  Citric Acid, Sugar

*Please note that I don't put any extra glycerine into the soap - this is just the glycerine that is created naturally during the soap making process.
According to NZ labelling rules the final ingredients of a product have to be listed

These range in weight from 82g to about 100g - I had a bit of a struggle to cut them regularly. But hubby made me some new add-ons for my cutter, which hopefully fixes the problem forever.
