MAKING HOMEMADE SOAP:  (Tips & Soap Recipe)

Rice bran is used in bar and liquid homemade soap recipes.  It offers very similar qualities as olive oil.  It offers creamy, moisturizing, smooth, silky, lather and at a much lower price than olive oil.  Rice bran oil can cost as much as three times less than olive oil.  If you're making large batches of soap, you can see why it's so popular! 

It makes a very gentle, low cleansing bar, great for babies or elderly skin.  It can give soap a waxy, somewhat, shiny finish.  Blend it with coconut oil to add hardness to your bars.
