Instructions for handling, molding and processing the Melt and Pour Soap base:

There are two ways to melt the soap base:
  • Microwave oven
  • A jacketed hot water bath ideally with thermostatic control (like the soup small heating kettles in restaurants.)

Note: For simplicity you can use a double boiler pan with hot water in between. Instructions for double boiler are similar to microwave.

Microwave Instructions
  1. Thinly slice or grate the soap base for ease of melting.
  2. Place the soap in a Pyrex cup and place it in the microwave for 30 seconds (For half a pound)
  3. Remove and stir slightly.
  4. Continue to microwave for another 30 seconds.
  5. Add soap colorant and stir until blended (soap colorant should be minimal).
  6. Add soap fragrance to the desired level, and stir gently and thoroughly
  7. Pour soap into soap molds. Let cool and harden before popping out of the moulds.
  8. For fast set allows the soap to cool for 10 minutes, then cover in plastic wrap and place in refrigerator (not the Freezer) until set.
  9. Wipe and clean the microwave.

Things to beware and ensure in processing the Melt and Pour Soap base:
  1. Never allow the soap to boil. Boiling might denature the color and cause a yellowish hue.
  2. Children require adult supervision, and should not handle alone the hot and melted soap.
  3. Ideally the soap temp. Prior to pouring should be between 55-60 Celsius. In other words you can put your finger in the soap and it shouldn't burn.
  4. Do not over stir when mixing colors and fragrances. But if this happens allow 10 minutes of settling for the release of air bubbles. Air bubbles if tapped in the mould will spoil the transparency
  5. Always pour on a leveled surface.
  6. When placing an insert or an object in the soap. Pour the first layer and let cool. Insert the object. And when pouring the second layer it has to be higher in temperature up to 70 degrees Celsius. Otherwise separation of the two layers might occur.
  7. Avoid diluting the soap with water or any other chemical. The only exception to this is to add a maximum of 5% glycerin should you need a softer or more transparent soap.
  8. Avoid contact of soap with eyes.
