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. Using a soap slicer, cut soap into 1-2 inch pieces. The soap slicer is dull and perfect for this project. Do not use a knife as it is very sharp and the soap is slippery. The knife could slip causing injury.
  3. Place 10 oz of soap into 3 different Pyrex cups. If you do not have a scale, you can divide the soap into 3 equal parts and place in individual cups.
  4. Pyrex Cup 1: Using a microwave, melt the soap using the high setting and 30 second intervals. Stir between intervals.
  5. To the melted soap, add 9 ml of fragrance and 9 ml of Vanilla Color Stabilizer. Using a spoon, mix well.
  6. Place a Tablespoon of glycerin in the plastic beaker and add the desired amount of Tutti Frutti powder. Stir well. Add desired magenta liquid color to melted soap, mix well. Add enough color to provide a nice pink shade.
  7. Set the mold on a cookie sheet or jelly roll pan for stability and easy clean up.
  8. Transfer 2 oz of pink soap to the plastic beaker. Pour 1 oz of soap into each mold cavity. It is important to pour the soap in the middle of the cavity and not down the sides of the mold.
  9. You can pour the soap directly from the pyrex cup to the mold but instead we recommend using the beaker because it has measurement markings which will help your soap pop layers appear even and symmetrical.
  10. Transfer additional pink soap from the Pyrex cup to the beaker until all mold cavities are filled with 1 oz of pink soap.
  11. After all of the mold cavities are filled with pink soap, spritz the soap with a light layer of rubbing alcohol. This will pop any surface bubbles and help give a smooth line between soap layers.
  12. Set the Pyrex cup and beaker (used for pink soap) aside. It will have remaining soap that can be remelted later for a second batch of soap.
  13. Allow the soap in the mold to return to room temperature.
  14. Pyrex cup 2: Using a microwave, melt the white soap using the high setting and 30 second intervals. Stir between intervals.
  15. To the melted soap, add 9 ml of fragrance and 9 ml of Vanilla Color Stabilizer. Using a spoon, mix well.
  16. Spritz the hard pink soap (in the mold) with a heavy layer of rubbing alcohol. Applying rubbing alcohol between layers of soap allows the layers to adhere to each other.
  17. When the melted white soap reaches 125º F you can safely pour it on top of the pink soap. If you do not have a thermometer, you will know the soap has significantly cooled when the outside of pyrex cup is just warm to the touch and the soap begins to slightly thicken.
  18. Pour the white soap using the same instructions and technique given for the pink soap. You will want to use a clean beaker so that the white soap stays nice and white.
  19. After all of the mold cavities are filled with white soap, spritz the soap with a light layer of rubbing alcohol. This will pop any surface bubbles and help give a smooth line between soap layers.
  20. Place the mold cover over the mold base. Insert the soap pop sticks into each slot. Make sure they are upright and not leaning to the side.
  21. Allow the white soap in the mold to return to room temperature.
  22. Pyrex cup 3: Using a microwave, melt the soap using the high setting and 30 second intervals. Stir between intervals.
  23. To the melted soap, add 9 ml of fragrance and 9 ml of Vanilla Color Stabilizer. Using a spoon, mix well.
  24. Place a Tablespoon of glycerin in a plastic beaker and add the desired amount of brown pigment powder. Stir well.
  25. Add desired brown liquid color to melted soap, mix well. Add enough color to provide a nice chocolate shade.
  26. Carefully remove the mold cover and set aside.
  27. Spritz the white soap (in the mold) with a heavy layer of rubbing alcohol. Applying rubbing alcohol between layers of soap allows the layers to adhere to each other.
  28. When the brown soap has reached 125º F you can safely pour the brown soap on top of the white soap. If you do not have a thermometer, you will know the soap has significantly cooled when the outside of pyrex cup is just warm to the touch and the soap begins to slightly thicken.
  29. Pour the brown soap using the same instructions given for the pink soap. You will want to use a clean beaker so that the brown soap stays nice and dark.
  30. After all of the mold cavities are filled with brown soap, spritz the soap with a light layer of rubbing alcohol. This will pop any surface bubbles and help give a smooth finish.
  31. When your soap pop has completely returned to room temperature, carefully unmold the bar.
  32. The soap is ready to use after unmolding. If you plan to sell your soap, wrap it immediately.
  33. Place your soap pop in a shrink wrap bag and tie a ribbon twist tie around the stick.
  34. Using a standard hair dryer, shrink the wrap around the bar. Push down on any pointed corners.
  35. Wrap the twist tie around a pencil to give a festive, fun, curled appearance.
  36. Don't forget to label the soap to complete the package. Label according to FDA cosmetic label guidelines.
