Hi everyone...
After quite some time "stalking" this forum, it's time for my first post - please be gentle :D

I've made several batches of HP soap, which have been a raging success judging by the feedback from those using it, and want to start getting a bit more into some pretty swirls and designs which means it's time to jump in and go for some CP action!

Before I order another batch of oils (I have to import them from South Africa as I live in Zambia and we don't have everything available to us here), I wanted to get feedback from the superstars here on my current recipe. I haven't had any problems with it, but figured some help from more experienced people can't hurt! Here's what I've been using thus far:

1kg coconut oil (76 degree)
240g sunflower oil
200g cottonseed oil
200g olive oil
200g avocado butter
160g castor oil

I superfat at 10%, with lye being 281g, water 660g.

Cost of the oils is a fairly critical thing for me - I do need to keep the costs as low as possible, though am happy to spend a little more if there's something that will give me a great benefit!

I look forward to any feedback you may have!
