Can I substitute the rapeseed oil for another oil?
I used rapeseed oil because I was trying to use up some leftover rapeseed oil that I had bought when I wanted to make a copycat activated charcoal face bar of soap
. A lot of people are unfamiliar with the oil, though, and don't want to buy it for only a recipe like this one. That's why I'm offering substitutions.
If you substitute the rapeseed oil for avocado oil
, the superfat will be between 6% and 7%. (The bar will be slightly harder, and have slightly more lather, but will be slightly less conditioning. The higher superfat amount, though, probably brings the conditioning amount to about the same.)
If you substitute the rapeseed oil for sweet almond oil
, the superfat amount will also be between 6% and 7%. In either of these cases the soap should end up being very similar to the original posted recipe.
