Potassium cocoate

Our potassium cocoate soap base 40 is an all natural soap base made from saponified coconut oil. It is 100% vegetable based, using all coconut oil, which makes a really good lathering soap.

While the vegetable derived potassium cocoate soap cleans well, with a typical alkaline pH, it is very gentle too since it has glycerin as a byproduct of the saponification process.

Our Simple Soap potassium cocoate 40 is made to be diluted, and has many great applications. It can easily be used as a base for shampoo, a body cleanser, hand wash or even as a mild laundry detergent base. Because it is a great cleaner, and produces nice natural foam you can also easily just add it many of your store bought products as well to add even better performance to them.

Since it is all natural Coconut oil, it also contains from 10% to 12% glycerin, adding good moisturizing qualities to the soap.

    Liquid Soap

    Posted by Stephanie Addicks on Dec 12th 2018

    This liquid soap is not clear as the picture depicts. I purchased a 55 gallon drum. It is cloudy and I had to stick blend it as there were little white flecks throughout the soap. It does suds nicely, when rinsing under water your skin feels very tacky ;( but after when hands are dry they feel soft. It is very a very thin and liquidy soap, there is not much body to it at all. Fingers crossed that my other fragrances do not make it thinner than it is...I hope my customers will like this new soap as I now have a lot of it!!
