Luffa / Loofah Soap Recipe

making luffa soap


 This soap recipe is based on a 2 pound (32 oz) batch. Please be sure to go to to run the numbers through again to be sure the numbers are accurate for this recipe. Basic soap making knowledge and proper safety gear/precautions is necessary as this is not a tutorial.

If you decide to substitute ANY of the oils or butters, you must run it through the soap calculator as this will change the amount of lye/water you will need. 

We have this soap superfatted at 5% (you can adjust that if you wish).  Of course you do not need to use luffas if you just wish to make a basic soap loaf without them. I like my lye and oils to be in the temperature range of 80-100 F. 



Olive Oil             8.96 oz            (28%)

Palm Oil             8.32 oz           (26%)

Coconut Oil        5.76 oz           (18%)

Mango Butter     3.84 oz           (12%)

Avocado oil        3.20 oz           (10%)

Castor Oil           1.92 oz           ( 6 %)

These are all measured by weight


Water    9 oz   (remaining needed liquid comes from your coconut milk - so 12 oz of liquid is needed in total for this size recipe)

Coconut Milk (liquid)      3 oz   by weight  ( add this to your melted oils before adding your lye water)

Lye/ Sodium Hydroxide     4.41 oz

These are all measured by weight


Optional  Additives

Sodium Lactate            .8 oz  -by weight      (2.5% of your oil weight)

Colloidal oat flour          2 TBSP

Jojoba beads          1/2  - 1 tsp  per pound of soap - it's really up to you how much you like.

Essential oil or fragrance    .5 - 1 oz  - by weight   (per pound of soap; so for this recipe 1 oz - 2 oz, your preference)

Luffas / loofahs     8-10 pcs    about 1 - 1.5 inches thick.  Amount recipe will make depends on the variance in luffa vs. mold size as well as soap thickness desired.

~~~ This soap may need up to 48 hrs to unmold so it's hard enough without damaging the soap.  Allow to cure for 4-6 weeks and then enjoy!

Amazing products

I have been using Bonny Bubbles products for two years. I love the silky way the powder makes my skin feel. I’m not able to use perfumes due to asthmas, but the soft hits of smell don’t affect my asthma. I also have issues with scented lotions, so the soft wonderful powder gives me a way perfume myself with out upsetting my allergies.
I highly recommend for anyone.

Love Everything !

I am in love with ALL the scents that I get from Bonnie Bubbles. I would like to see them bring back the SOLID perfumes. THEY WERE ALWAYS MY FAVORITE. But... I have no complaints.

Powder power!

Great stuff - Smells great, very smooth and free of bad stuff. Can't beat that!


The best powder out in the marketplace. I stay away from talc because of safety concerns plus allergic to cornstarch products.
Bonny Bubbles is a great product with SO Many options. Talc and cornstarch free. Love all the options with quick fulfillment.
A great small business I am happy to support!!

Body powder- Barber Shop/Platinum

Very good body powder! Used it at the gym and kept me dry.
