Cold Process soap use while wearing a cup

So I've been using a Diva Cup for many months, and have been vigilantly following care instructions to lengthen the life of my cup. It says not to use oil based soaps, so I use the Diva Wash on my whole body during my period. The nub thing sticks out of my body a teeny bit (comfortably) and I stopped using my cold process soap ( oil and lye soap) as a precaution.

Lately, I've been getting real sick of washing with this Diva gel. I miss my CP soap! Do I really have to give it up during this time of the month? I'd also love to take a bath with one of my moisturizing bath bombs. They have added almond oil in them.

I was also thinking of using cold process soap on the rest of my body, and only using the Diva gel on my nether regions...but the suds would still run down there!

Can I use these products safely or should I continue to avoid them? Thanks!
