Step 1: Melt your soap base
Melt your soap base using either a microwave for small quantities, or a slow cooker/hob for larger amounts. We would recommend cutting the base into small chunks and heat until melting point, do not overheat your soap base, keep below 70° C. If you are adding butters to your soap base, be sure to also melt them. We would recommend using a microwave and keep below 60° C.
Step 2: Prepare your additives
Step 3: Prepare your colourants
Step 4: Get Mixing!
Add your desired fragrances, colourants, oils/butters, exfoliantes and decorative glitters. Once you have added all the ingredients stir thoroughly, make sure all the ingredients are mixed evenly. At any point throughout the process a skin begins to form on top of the soap, this is the soap setting; you can re-heat and continue the process at any time.
