I was given avocado soap from our buyer who used our colorant for a lot of fab stuff that was way beyond my own DIY imagination. So I dug online to see what the recipes are out there!
Plus, avocados in California where we live are rather affordable. Years back I was on a biz trip to Bejing, one avocado was a whopping $12 each !” It means, my very own preferred avocado handmade soap recipe is made with real avocados, fragrance oils, and every basic thing from a soap making supplies store.
Below is a very easy-to-follow, beginner-friendly cold process soap recipe.

In case you need more convincing that this DIY soap hobby (who knows, you may eventually turn it into a business) is worth venturing into, here are four beauty benefits of avocado:
1) It is a great moisturizer.
2) It smoothens the skin.
3) It has a good anti-aging property.
4) It can treat acne.
Convinced yet? Then let’s stop dilly-dallying and move on to the how to make soap tutorial. There are loads of avocado handmade soap recipes out there, but here’s one that we feel is best to get you started.
First, here’s what you’ll need:
- 10″ silicone mold
- Stick blender
- Food processor
- 8oz Avocado Oil
- 7oz Olive Oil
- 3oz Shea Butter
- 2oz Lemongrass Essential Oil
- Kiwi or Jade Green skin-safe colorant
- 4oz avocado slices
- 7.2oz distilled water
- 5oz lye
(Remember, this list of materials stay the same with any cold process soap recipe. You may play on essential oil combinations to suit your taste.)
Now, let’s get on to creating your avocado handmade soap. But first, make sure your work area is clean, you are wearing goggles, and you are wearing gloves.
Use a food processor to puree your avocado. Then, make a lye solution by pouring lye slowly and carefully into the water. Gently mix until clear.
Combine the pureed avocado, the avocado and olive oils, shea butter, and the lemongrass oil. Stick blend well.
We are using shea butter in this recipe to enhance the hardening of our handmade soap. This also adds as a moisturizer for the skin.
When the mix is well-blended, add the lye solution and again stick blend until the solution is emulsified.
Next, pour in the green colorant then thoroughly mix.
Finally, pour your mixture into your mold of choice. Tip: Pour the mix 6 inches within the mold to not accidentally overflow the mold. If you want to create a bit of texture, drag a spoon on the top.
After pouring the soap mix in the mold, leave the soap for 12 to 24 hours to dry.
Once dried, take the soap out of the mold and get ready to use your soap. If it’s still too soft after 24 hours, leave it to rest longer.
There you go. Easy cold process soap recipe. Now you won’t have to shop for an avocado handmade soap because you’ve already made one.
