The natural choice for soap making and skincare ingredients

Here at Gracefruit we understand that a lot of people may not agree with using palm oil or animal fats in soap making for a variety of reasons, be it for personal preferences such as vegetarian or veganism or the need to be environmentally friendly. We do our best to provide the best and most up-to-date hints, tips and recipes for our customers no matter what, so the following recipes do not contain any palm oil or animal fats! You can enjoy the fun of soap making completely guilt-free!

Please ensure you run each recipe through a soap/sap calculator to determine the correct amount of caustic soda/lye. Good soap calculators can be found here and here.

Please do not attempt any of the recipes unless you have a good understanding of the soap making process.
