MAKING THE SOAP
Here at the Oasis Camel Dairy, we have been making our own camel milk soap, right in our own kitchen for six years. The soap making process is pretty much like our great grandmothers used to follow: mixing a saponifying agent with fats and allowing them to cure over several weeks.
Each bar of our Camel Milk Soap contains 25 % camel’s milk.
We do not use animal fat. Our fats come from rich oils like pure olive oil, coconut, palm kernel, and castor oil. We are one of the few soap makers that have continued to use pure olive oil, even thought the price has skyrocketed. The canola oil alternative just does not provide the benefits of pure olive oil.
The milk is added to the saponifying agent and stirred constantly to maintain a low temperature. Once they are combined, they are added to the plant oils and mixed for several minutes. Near the end of the mixing process we add essential oils or fragrance, herbs and color to make each of our unique blends. Once mixed thoroughly, the soap is poured into molds and allowed to rest for one day before being removed from the molds and placed on the curing racks where they will remain for up to six weeks. Then they are cut and labeled.
