The type of soap being made is called "Cold Process"* It is made by combining fatty acids and sodium hydroxide (lye) together. Fatty acids can be almost any oil - from beef tallow to olive oil to hemp oil. The combinations for making your own personal recipe are endless. Making these soaps with milk requires special preparation and recipes.
