    what do you use as the main base oil in a soap that has no olive oil in it? all my batches so far have had a big OO %, I'd like to try one without.

    With no predominant oil.
    I did one with olive, coconut, cocoa butter, sunflower & castor.
    One of the nicest soap I've got on the rack.

    You don't find that amount of castor oil adds to softness or stickiness?

    I have used flaxseed, hemp & soyabean (the proper stuff)in the past.
