Tutorial: Luxury Argan & Creamy Avocado Soap

I’ve been destashing lately and had a little over six ounces of argan oil hanging around. So, I decided it was time to whip up a luxurious facial soap by using a little pureed avocado. I complimented the argan oil with avocado oil and the result is this beauty.

Argan and Creamy Avocado Soap Recipe

Luxury Argan & Creamy Avocado Soap Recipe

This formula is sized for the Brambleberry 10″ silicone mold, like most of my formulas here on Modern Soapmaking. And it works out perfect for a small avocado!

(If you arenโ€™t sure how much soap your mold holds, you can find out with this guide to resizing your soap recipes to fit your mold.)

Soap Formula Used

  • 8 ounces Avocado Oil (21.1% of the base oils)
  • 8 ounces Babassu Oil (21.1% of the base oils)
  • 7 ounces Olive Oil (18.4% of the base oils)
  • 6 ounces Coconut Oil (15.8% of the base oils)
  • 6 ounces Argan Oil (15.8% of the base oils)
  • 3 ounces Castor Oil (7.9% of the base oils)
  • 5.3 ouncesย Sodium Hydroxide (7% superfat)
  • 6.75 ounces Distilled Water (33% lye solution including the additional avocado below)
  • 4 ounces Pureed Avocado

If you need help understanding lye solutions in soapmaking, this article will help.ย I buy most of my soaping oils fromย Soaperโ€™s Choice.

Essential Oil Blend Used

  • 14 grams Lime Essential Oil
  • 10 gramsย Pink Grapefruit Essential Oil
  • 10 gramsย Lavender Essential Oil
  • 8 grams Sweet Basil Essential Oil
  • 6 grams Litsea Cubeba Essential Oil

Colorants Used

  • 1/2 teaspoon Green Oxide Pigment
  • 1/2 teaspoon Yellow Oxide Pigment

PREP WORK:ย Scrape out a small avocado. Weigh out four ounces, and puree it using a food processor or your stickblender.

Weigh out your soaping oils, including your essential oil blend. I like to add my essentials oils to my main soap pot so I can’t possibly forget them later! Make up your lye solution, too!

Add 1/2 teaspoon of both green oxide and yellow oxide into a four cup measuring cup. Premix it with a small portion (about a tablespoon) of your soaping oils. Remember, OXIDE start with an “O” so they mix well with Oils. ๐Ÿ˜‰ The equal portions of green and yellow pigments creates a bright and beautiful green.

GET STARTED:ย I like to add additives like fruit and vegetable purees, milks, etc., to my soaping oils. If you want to follow along, add your pureed avocado to your soaping pot and stickblend it well. Add your lye solution to your soaping oils, stick blend until emulsified. Once you have reached an emulsified state, pour about a third of your batch into the measuring cup with your oxides. (If you have not added your fragrance, you need to do that first!)

Thoroughly mix your pigment into the split batch. Pour a little bit of your green colored soap into the main pot at four corners and a little in the middle. (If your soaping pot was a clock, it would be 12, 3, 6, and 9 o’clock plus the middle of the face!) You should have about half of your green colored soap left afterwards. No additional mixing or swirling in the pot necessary. This will create a nice in-the-pot swirl (ITPS) when you pour the soap. ๐Ÿ˜‰

SWIRL ย IT:ย Pour half of the ITPS soap into the mold.

Next, flood fill the next layer using the rest of the green soap. It’s okay if the flood fill breaks the bottom layer!

Pour the rest of the ITPS soap in the mold, pouring from a moderate height (about six to ten inches above the mold) to break through the middle flood fill layer. If your soap has thickened up, pour from higher. If it’s thinner, pour closer to the mold.

THE FINISH LINE:ย Texture the top of the soap nice and pretty! Put the argan & avocado soap to sleep (insulate lightly), and unmold in 12 to 24 hours.

If the soap is too soft, leave it for another 12 to 24 hours before attempting to unmold again.

Slice it up, cure it out, & enjoy!

  1. Yes I have! Not together though, but separately. My avocado soap, with puree avocado, is actually a big hit. Anyone who has tried it says it’s feel is amazing. IMO it’s also better than my argan oil soap and the cost of making it is also smaller. I might be wrong, but I think argan oil comes to its best in a cream, rather than a soap. But I read not long ago from anoather soapmaker that she felt the same way (no big difference adding argan oil to her soaps) until she tried it as a sole luxury oil in the formula and then she really noticed the difference. I will try that soon and see what happens.
    Back to the avocado soap, I love making soap with fresh fruit and I have tried a wide variety of fruit and veggies in soap. So far my very favourites are avocado and banana. But I keep experimenting ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Thank you Kenna for sharing your knowledge!
    Anna

    1. Haven’t tried using fresh ingredients but I want too. How do you make it last? does the soap spoil like food? get moldy?

  2. This soap looks lovely and I can’t wait to try it. Several months ago I made a facial bar with olive, avocado, argan, and rosehip seed oils, and subbed aloe for all of the water. I swirled in red moroccan clay as well and added some beeswax for hardness. My skin feels great when I use this soap, and the lather is very much like what you would expect from a creamy cleanser. While I love using argan oil, and I think it has great label appeal, I actually prefer rosehip seed oil myself because I find it to be more moisturizing.

  3. I haven’t tried making soap yet, but I hope to very soon! Thanks for this tutorial! However, I’ve read about putting different fruits and foods in soap and honestly it sounds just delicious! BUT, I’m curious about the preservation of it. How do you keep the food or fruit from molding or going bad? Also, does the color stay the same as it was when you first made it?

    1. It is not necessary to add a preservative to cold process soaps when using purees or milks. The high pH of cold process soap inhibits most microbial growth if the ingredients used are high quality initially (for instance, no moldy avocados!) Additionally, saponification applies not just to the soaping oils used but also other additivies. For instance, parts of certain essential oils do, in fact, saponify. Kevin Dunn, who wrote the book Scientific Soapmaking on my Recommendations list, has done a lot of research in regards to this.

      I have heard reports from soapmakers that these soaps do not last as long and develop DOS after about 8 or 9 months, but I have never had an issue – so it may be a question of what was used in the first place. Always go with your comfort level!

      Adding purees and additives to the oils before trace tends to keep the color changes to a minimum. The soap photographed in this post is completely cured. I hope that helps!

      1. Yes, thanks for that answer! However, this “newbie” doesn’t know what DOS is… LOL. What kinds of foods have you added to soap before? Or have you only done avocados? Would it also work with dried fruits such as dried strawberries? Thanks for your patience and willingness to educate us! I’ve seen your soaps on youtube and they are just AMAZING!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve also wondered with all the bright and rich colors you used how the soap didn’t bleed onto washcloths when it was used.

        1. LOL ๐Ÿ™‚ DOS is “Dreaded Orange Spots” – it’s when the free oils and other additives that haven’t saponified in a bar of soap go rancid. It looks like little orange spots on the bar, and it smells horrible.

          I’ve done a lot of different vegetable and fruit purees – avocado (obviously!), pumpkin, apples, blueberries, cucumbers, tomato, carrots, etc. I have only used dried lemon and orange peel in soap when it comes to dried fruit, where it was cut into tiny pieces as an exfoliant. ๐Ÿ™‚

          The soaps on YouTube are all done with micas, which each have their own max usage rate. As long as you don’t use a colorant over that rate, it shouldn’t bleed into the lather.

          Hope that helps!

      2. Thank you for that write up Kenna I love knowledge such as yours. I wouldn’t use food in my soaps because I couldn’t wrap my head around the fact of spoiling food in my soap I am so anxious to try this avocado soap. You go up and beyond not only do you explain but you give a great recipe to back it up live this . How can I support your site and effects ? I like ! I subscribed ! Anything else I can do please don’t go away !!! I am not a reading kind a person but I will sit a full day reading your posts no matter how long it would be

        1. Awww, Lynn, that’s so sweet of you! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m glad you are enjoying the articles here on Modern Soapmaking. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am in the process of launching a Patreon, which I’ll be blogging about soon. It’s basically a virtual tip jar for people who want to support Modern Soapmaking. You can catch the early deets right over here: https://www.patreon.com/ModernSoapmaking

          Thanks again for the darling comments! I hope you continue to enjoy Modern Soapmaking!

      3. I just read that I need to add fruit purรฉe with the lye, but I added my fruit purรฉe after the soap cooked in the crockpot. Thinking it would be untouched by the lye, like my SF. It seems fine. Can I use it? Or is it not good? I read it might mold, but can I rebar have it? Or can we use it quickly, before it molds? HELP!!

  4. Hi Kenna! I have been soaping for about a year and am addicted. I use extra virgin OO, Virgin Coconut, Virgin Shea & Cocoa Butters as a standard blend for my soaps and have made many with veg/ herbs and love them.

    The question I have and I know it is not simple is that I hope there is a benefit to using extra virgin/ raw in soaps rather than refined. That the vitamins from puree of Avocado/ Cucumber/ Strawberries/ Bananas go through in the soap at least somewhat. Similarly, for Argan, are we better of using it straight as a moisturiser on our face or shall we put some in soap?

    1. Argan is definitely better used in a moisturizer or straight, many oils are – but they still make great soap. Some soapmakers can feel the difference between oils with similar fatty acids, others can’t tell – so it’s a personal thing. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      The benefits of raw/virgin vs. unrefined vs. refined in soapmaking is widely debated, and I encourage personally testing and seeing what you like best!

  5. Aloha Kenna,

    Here on the Big Island of Hawaii, we have Avo’s galore of many different varieties. Many trees grow wild & are dropping their fruit on the ground. I love using fresh Avocado puree in cold process. It makes a great bar. Mahalo nui loa for , all that you do to share your experiences, knowledge techniques & recipes with us.

    Aloha nui from Hilo!

    1. Mapuana,

      My family and I were in the big island for a month and loved it there. We used to live there years ago.

      Kenna,

      This looks great, I don’t have Sweet Basil so may try subbing with Holy Basil instead or leaving that out. I have the 10L silicone mold which makes this very handy. Thank you.

      Michelle

  6. Thanks for this recipe… are you sure on the water? It works out to about 18% of the oils, which is really low. I would think the mix would be thicker than the pics with this little water.

    1. I’m absolutely positive on the water. ๐Ÿ™‚ Vegetable purees, milks, and the like are often used as water replacements. Instead of putting them in the lye solution, I add them to the oils to help control the color and catalysts (temperature, sugars, etc.) So the amount of the avocado puree is technically in addition to the distilled water to add up to the total water portion.

      Hope that makes sense!
      Kenna

      1. I have the same issue. When I run this through a lye calculator, I get the exact lye amount and 12.54 oz of water. Even counting the full 4 oz of avocado as liquid (and granted, a tiny amount is avocado fat), that would bring this recipe only up to 6.75+4 = 10.75 oz of “water.” That’s still almost 2 oz short.

        Is there a missing piece about using a little water with the avocado when pureeing? I cannot account for that missing 2 oz of water.

        1. The recipe uses a 33% lye solution, as stated, and like most tutorials on Modern Soapmaking. I don’t use full water. As long as you don’t use less water than the weight of your lye, you can use however much water as you want.

  7. I was just talking about Avacado Soap with my business partner today! She doesn’t understand how, with using fresh fruits or vegetables, this soap wouldn’t go bad quickly? But, I heard about it, or read about it somewhere before and have been dying to try it. I have made soap with Pumpkin Puree in it, and all my customers love it. It is very creamy & very bubbly. So, Thank you so much for posting this recipe. As soon as one of my avacados get riper, I will be making this soap!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Just wondering…what can I replace Babassu Oil with? I don’t have any and would love to make this soap. Thanks!

    1. If you aren’t a palm-free soaper, Palm Kernel Oil is the best replacement. I’m palm-free, so I use Babassu in place of where I used PKO previously. You can also tweak the formula to use more coconut and palm oil, if that’s what you like. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Thank you so much! What about the Argan oil? Can I use less and replace some or all of it with another oil such as Sunflower Oil or ? I really can’t wait to try this. I’ve been wanting to do an avocado soap for some time now and this one looks just lovely!

          1. Kenna, I put all your ingredients for this soap into Soap Calc at 7% superfat and 33% lye solution as you’ve written, and it keeps telling me to use only 4.29 oz. of lye to get an INS of 132. Your recipe calls for more lye, and 132 is a very soft bar.

            What am I missing here? I can’t put the avocado puree into the Soap Calc, of course, and that must make the difference–or does it? I’m really confused.

          2. I personally use Soapmaker 3 for formulating. SoapCalc will have slightly different SAP values for some oils than Soapmaker 3 (I don’t think that’s the case with any oil in this recipe though.) In actuality, all oils from every crop have a different SAP number but no lye calculator can account for this and it’s negligible differences.

            To double check, I just ran it through SoapCalc and it’s giving me 5.31 oz lye and an INS of 152. You may want to double check what you entered.

            As for INS numbers, I don’t use them. I haven’t written on this topic yet, but Anne-Marie at Bramble Berry has and I fully agree with her: http://www.soapqueen.com/bath-and-body-tutorials/cold-process-soap/ins-numbers-for-soapmaking/

  9. Thank you Kenna for this tutorial , a couple of months ago I made avocado soap, it’ s a very nice soap, but the color is brown, what went wrong?

    1. Soaps changing color doesn’t necessarily mean anything went wrong! What fragrance did you use? How much avocado? This soap did not stay “white” it’s a light beige tone where the pigment is not. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Why did you use so little water? According to brambleberry’s lye calculator, you could have used up to 13 ounce of water. Did you choose to do that to reduce the curing time? Or is it because you’re using pureed avocado? Let me know please cuz i wanna try that recipe

    1. Hi Sacha! The pureed avocado is indeed part of the water percentage. ๐Ÿ˜‰ You can use a flat 50% lye solution and not add additional water, if you’d like. It does cut down on the cure time (but can be difficult to handle with any form of acceleration.) But this recipe does include additional “water” in the form of the puree.

      Thanks for stopping by!
      Kenna

  11. I am working with a lady here in West Africa who is making soap t sell. She is using carrots and coconut oil. The scent is not so great. I would like to help her develop this craft so that she might could start a small business. Can you give me some pointers for natural scents/oils that we can find here or point me to articles that I can use in helping her develop a cottage industry.

  12. Hi Kenna,

    love the beautifully textured top, and I am curious, did your soap go through gel phase? Only asking, because I made your lemongrass-coconut milk recipe and as it went through gel -phase, the textured top sadly “melted” ๐Ÿ™ I tried to save it, but it was not like the original with the carefully made swirls…
    How do you avoid gel phase, short of sticking the mold in the fridge ?

    Thanks in advance

    Zsuzsa

  13. I tried this recipe (with a little more water since i thought the water amount was too low based on my lye calculator) and at first it had the nice pale green color but the next day it turned brown. Did yours turn brown too? Is it because i added water? Why is there so little water in this recipe?

  14. I made your recipe a few weeks ago. I just tried it outโ€ฆwow! I love this soap. Mine looks a lot like yours and the colors look like avocado. I think this one is a winner. Feels lovely on my skin. It will only get better as it fully cures. Thank you of this wonderful recipe.

  15. Why do you use grams? I’m so confused. how do I concert to percentages? and the bramble berry calc doesn’t even have argan oil? I can’t follow your recipe exactly so you say run it through lye calc and I can’t because your lye calc doesn’t have argan oil?

  16. Hi Kenna,
    I was looking for a soap recipe which incorporates avocado puree, so thank you very much for this tutorial! ๐Ÿ™‚

    or “terima kasih” as we say here in Indonesia.. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  17. hi, can i please use melt and pour to make this recipe instead of using the lye solution, if yes, what kind of melt and pour soup will be good for this project and how many ounces? thanks

  18. Hi!
    I’m a newbie to the soapmaking process. So far, the recipes I used mentioned a number of drops when it came to essential oils. I have no idea what 1 g of essential represents compared to my tiny 5mL or 30mL bottle. Can you give me a rough idea so that I make sure I have enough of each EO before starting the recipe. Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. You shouldn’t use drops in formulating, it’s not safe nor reliable. All essential oils should be measured by weight. You can read up about why essential oils should be weighed here: http://www.modernsoapmaking.com/essential-oil-usage-rates-ifra-guidelines/

      As well as more information about safety and essential oils in soapmaking here:

  19. I love the sound of this recipe! I do mostly HP soaps and add my Argan oil as a SF at the end of the cook. I will definitely try it as a main oil. My question for you however is, if doing HP, when would you add the avocado, before or after the cook? I want to keep that nice color.
    Thanks!

    1. I’m not as versed in hot process soapmaking as I am in cold process (I just don’t like it as much!) I believe you would add it during the cook so that it gets well incorporated – I’m not sure how that will affect the color.

  20. Hi Kenna,

    This recipe looks absolutely amazing…thanks for sharing! I was wondering what I can replace the Litsea Cubeba oil with…I actually only have the Grapefruit and Lavendar oils on hand…

    Also, is there something more natural I can use in place of the oxide pigments?

    Thanks in advance!!

  21. I just made this yesterday and it turned out great! Your instructions are wonderful. I left the fragrances and colorants out since I want to sell this as a luxury facial soap with all natural ingredients. THANKS for sharing this!

  22. Kenna, thank you so much for sharing this recipe. I’m a complete soap making novice. Do you mind explaining, what do you mean by “flood filling”?

    Many thanks.

    Jay
    Wales, UK

    1. Flood filling is using the spatula parallel to the soap surface to catch the soap as you pour it, that way it doesn’t come down on the previous layer with too much force and “break through” the layer.

  23. Hi, I do not have Babassu Oil, what can I replace with?
    Would you mind giving me 2-3 choices in case I don’t either one of them ^^ thanks!

  24. Hi, this recipe sounds awesome and I will likely give it a go shortly. I do not have any babassu oil. Are there any replacement oils you can think of? Thanks!

  25. I did a 10 pound batch tried Avocado for the first time, did 5% Superfat in Soap calc and 3oz of Avocado, my batch is really soft after 5 hours is that normal ???

    Thanks

    1. Soap is still typically saponifying after five hours, so it may be too soon to tell if something went wrong. 3 ounces of avocado in 10 pounds of soap is very little. You may want to make sure that you did not include too much water.

  26. Hi KennaI was wondering about the 7% superfat. I have read many articles about not using too high a superfat to reduce chances of oil rancidity, and esp if using fresh ingredients like fruit. And the 33% lye .. My general soaps use 5% superfat and 38% lye solution. Can I ask why we use your ratios here? I am always curious and trying to learn new ways so needed to ask ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for your fantastic website and info. Love it

    1. As a general rule, recipes and tutorials on this site are a 33% lye solution as it’s most manageable without sacrificing a shorter cure for most soapmakers. You can read up on lye solution strengths here: http://www.modernsoapmaking.com/lye-solution-in-soapmaking/

      I also typically use a 7% superfat as I find 5% superfats too drying for my skin. The fatty acid profile of the oils themselves matters the most. Many recipes on the internet have too much linoleic acid, which goes rancid quickly.

  27. Hi again Kenna,
    I have one more question.. would you consider putting percentages as well as weights next to your oil amounts in your recipes? As we use grams over h ere in Australia, I always have to bring up a converter for USA recipes.. Having percentages makes things so much easier for plugging recipes into the soap calc ๐Ÿ™‚ just a thought..

    1. It does not tend to turn brown if the soap is not oven processed (or heated) and if the avocado is mixed into the oils. This soap did not discolor over time.

  28. Hi I absolutely love this recipe but I have one small issue, the colorants used. It’s definitely a personal preference but I prefer to only use natural colorant (such a spices and fruit powders), what could I use instead of the oxides? What about a green clay? I don’t want to change the luxurious feeling of the soap though. And I can’t find a good way of making green out of fruits/veggies. I really like the green color and it associates the avacado with it. Also I’ve read a lot of recipes that use things like avacado a and blueberrys in cold process soap, but not many in hot process. Is it ok to use these things in HP soaps?

  29. I’m a total greenhorn to making soap. I would like to try doing this. In looking at the different soap recipes there is a lye solution or lye base that is used. Is this something that is made or is this a bought product to add to the soap. Please help. Also, are most of the soap oils available in the grocery store? I would think some of these would be hard to find. Essential oils sre not a problem.

    1. I am going to make this using my usual soap recipe this week!
      Joyce, I know what’s like to be a newbee. Please check this website for how to recipes before you do this. And read articles and books on soapmaking. It’s a great craft , but can be hazardous! Will post my results after I make it. Thanks Kenna!

    2. This is a cold process soapmaking recipe which requires you to make a lye solution. I really recommend SoapQueen.com for more beginner recipes. ๐Ÿ™‚

  30. Hi, love this recipe but want to make a batch for a 6lb mood bug don’t no the right measurements to use, could someone please help me out with them.
    Thank you

  31. Love your blog and the vast array of information!

    I have been making a facial avocado bar with fresh avocado puree and avocado oil, but I’ve been hot processing it.
    I want to cold process it in the worst way (my usual method) but from the get go I’ve been wondering: either way, do the luscious properties of the puree survive the saponification process or is the majority of it lost during the process?
    When I hp it, the only think I really count on is the fact that at least my avocado SF is left “untouched”.
    Would really love to know the answer to this ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks

    1. There isn’t enough scientific evidence as to what naturally occurring “stuff” saponifies and doesn’t, nor what beneficial properties exist, so it’s quite hard to say. I find this soap is creamy and luxurious, and won’t dry your skin out. Beyond that, it’s soap – just like any other. ๐Ÿ™‚

  32. Hi! I am new to soap making. I see you made this soap by using a hot process. How long does the soap last?? Does the Lye keep the avocado from going bad?

  33. I feel weird using food in in my soap. I’m new to soapmaking, however, so I suppose I’m uncomfortable with a lot of things. I just feel like the possibility of rancidity is so much higher? Can I use avocado butter in place of the avocado and just adjust the lye accordingly?

    1. You can use avocado butter instead, if you wish. It would be better to replace an oil in the recipe with it (rather than the avocado). The avocado is part of the water portion, so change it back to water. Always use a lye calculator to double check any adjustments!

    1. Yes, the avocado is part of the water portion of the soap, so if you would like to leave it out, simply replace it with water. Typically, this soap will turn brown if the avocado is not pureed thoroughly, or if the soap is heated (oven process or high temperature gel phase). The soap pictured, however, did not discolor or go rancid. We used the last bar over two years after making it! ๐Ÿ™‚

  34. Hello, thank you for share with us, here in Mexico is hard to find Babassu oil, can you help me, with what other can I substitute the Babassu oil? Sorry about my english… Regards from MExico.

  35. I am new to soap making but am bookmarking this recipe for when I have a little more experience. I’m sure my wife will love it. Could I substitute argan butter for argan oil?

    Cheers!

    1. Hey, Nikki,
      Your suppliers should be able to provide safe, IFRA compliant usage rates for fragrance oils and essential oils for whichever categories of product you are making. Also, you can use our EOCalc to help you with essential oil blend rates.

  36. Hello!
    I have a question regarding the PH level and acidity of the soap. What method do you use to test that the soap is ok and not caustic anymore?
    Thank you in advance!
