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.

I love to make my bath bombs super moisturizing but sometimes, adding too much oil of one sort or another can result in a not-so-desirable consistency. I’ve found that adding Coconut Milk Powder combined with a lesser amount of additional oil provides the silkiness of an oil without degrading the consistency of my bath bomb mixture. It does have a light and lovely fragrance that is undetectable once incorporated with my other ingredients.
Can you please tell me what other ingredients are in your Coconut Milk Powder?

I love the idea of using coconut milk powder so I can mix up just what I need without wasting a whole can of milk. Just want to confirm the recommended usage - from the Soap Crafting Club, I think we used 1oz of powder to 3oz of water. Is that the right proportion? Thanks!
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.
Does this have a scent? And how would you compare it to regular dehydrated milk powder? I'm wanting to use it in a bath bomb recipe, and wanted to know if this would work.

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.
