Coconut Milk Powder: Coconut milk is packed with vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5, B6, potassium, and folate to help nourish and hydrate skin and hair. It works great as an addition to cold process soaps or can add an extra level of moisture to your haircare and lotion products. The lauric acid content of coconut milk gives cold process soap extra hardness and promotes a luxuriously fluffy lather. When using this Coconut Milk Powder we found it was a little tricky to mix into water however, heating the water slightly (to about 95°F) made it easy.

Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Karie! I'm so glad you love the idea of using our Coconut Milk Powder! You are correct the recommended usage from that Soap Crafting session was 1 oz powder to 3 oz water. That would be the right proportion to use in future recipes! I will email you personally to discuss this further.

Hi Amanda, you could indeed use this in a bath bomb recipe. It does have a very faint coconut smell, but nothing that would overpower your fragrance oil.
