SLS Free Melt and Pour Soap Base - Opaque (1kg)
Ingredients: Ingredients: Aqua, propylene glycol, sodium stearate, sodium laureth sulfate, glycerine, sucrfose, sodium cocoate, sodium xylene sulfonate, titanium dioxide, stearic acid, tetrasodium EDTA, tetrasodium etidronate.
Directions for use: Chopping your base up into smaller chunks will aid the melting process. Melt in a microwave at 10-second intervals on a medium setting, stirring gently in between. Be careful not to let the soap boil. You can also melt using a Bain Marie.
Remove from the heat and allow the soap to cool slightly. Add your fragrance, many soap makers work at 3% for Essential Oils and 2% for Fragrance Oils depending on your oils.
Now you can add your preferred colour, home made vegetable dyes work well to give a subtle natural colour, botanicals offer a very natural hint of colour to your soap.
Pour the soap slowly into soap moulds, you could use an everyday container from your kitchen to make a soap loaf to be sliced. 500g of soap base is enough to make 5-6 standard sized bars depending on the design.
Leave to cool and set for preferably 12 hours, then ease them from the moulds.
