Recipe Directions

  1. NOTE: If you are making these products for sale, good manufacturing practices recommend you wear a hairnet, gloves and a mask. We also recommend a clean apron.
  2. Cut 1/2 pound (8 oz) of soap into 2" squares. Place in a 32 oz microwave safe container and carefully melt.
  3. While the soap is melting, weigh 7 grams of Lathanol and set aside.
  4. Remove soap from microwave and add 1/4 oz (7.5 ml) of fragrance.
  5. Take 1 oz of melted soap and add to lathanol. Stir well and disperse any clumps. Add lathanol mixture to remaining soap and stir well.
  6. Add 2 Tablespoons Kaolin Clay to soap and stir well.
  7. Place silicone mold on jelly roll pan.
  8. Immediately pour soap into mold. Soap will fill each of 6 mold cavities.
  9. When soap returns to room temperature, carefully unmold the soap.
  10. Repeat until desired amount of soap has been made.
  11. Place 3 bars of soap in a cello bag. Tie with strands of raffia. As an option you can sell the soap with an authentic shaving brush and mug!
  12. If you are selling this soap, label according to CPSC label guidelines. This soap meets the FDA's soap exemption guidelines.
