Honors Independent Project: The Study of Soap Synthesis!
For this project I decided to create my own soap and study the soap synthesis of the soap I created. The hardest part of this project was persevering through my failed attempt of making soap that took four hours out of my day. Later I found out that my error was because I used fractionated coconut oil which did not allow it to create a solid! After figuring out exactly what I did wrong I tried again and succeeded! My final product was the production of peppermint white bar soap. Provided below is the recipe I used to create the soap, the ingredients within the soap, research questions and answers, and the graphed pH levels of my soap from the entire making process.
