What is the difference between hard and soft oils for soap-making and why do you need a balance?
Hard and soft oils in soap determine how long your mold will have to sit to harden. If you use soft oils (like olive oil, sweet almond, rice bran, canola, etc.) then the soap will be soft and will take more time to harden. But if you use hard oils (like palm, coconut, cocoa butter, beeswax, etc.), then your soap will harden quicker. But you don’t want it to harden too quickly, as a result you want to find a balance of soft and hard oils in your mixture.
