Are you completely new to using melt and pour soap? Not sure what you need to make Melt and Pour Soap?
You will need
- Soap base
- Colour - optional
- A mould
- Microwave/double boiler to melt it
Soap base - this is down to individual choice. Are you looking to make a clear bar that you can see through, or an opaque bar.
Fragrance - a matter of personal choice. We would recommend adding 1-2% of fragrance to your melted soap (10-20ml per kg of soap base).
Colour - not all soap is coloured so this is entirely your choice. Our colours are concentrated so only a very small amount is needed. You will find that 1% (10ml per 1kg) will give a very good colour. If you need to dilute your colours then we would suggest you use deionised water which can be obtained from a DIY store. It is always easier to add more colour than take some away if you add too much.
A mould - you can use any plastic container for a mould or a specially designed soap mould with patterns and shapes.
Microwave/double boiler - you will need to melt the soap base and so a form of heat is required.
