Common Name Ingredient Listing (FDA Approved): This product does need to be listed on the product ingredient label.
Directions: Melt & Pour Soap: Pour melted soap at a temperature no hotter than 135ºF into mold. Cool until soap has hardened. Remove soap from mold. For easier unmolding, place into freezer for 30 minutes, and then immerse bottom of the mold in hot water for a few moments. Do not use cooking spray to coat mold.
Cold Process Soap: Coat the mold with cooking spray. Pour soap at trace into mold. After 24 hours, flip mold over onto a clean surface. Gently push the back of the mold until the soap begins to release then pull the soap out of the mold with a gloved hand. Allow soap to cure for 4-8 weeks. Note that some CP soap recipes may require a week to harden enough to remove from the mold. If this is the case with your recipe, we recommend adding sodium lactate to your recipe to assist with creating a harder bar faster.
Lotion Bars: Pour melted lotion bar mixture into mold cavities at a temperature no hotter than 135ºF. Allow mixture to solidify. Flip mold over onto clean surface. Gently push back of mold until lotion bar begins to release then pull bar out of mold.
Wash in warm, sudsy water. Please avoid the dishwasher because that can warp your molds or make them brittle.
COMMENTS: Beautiful mold, but does not release well(yes, I used hot water, and the freezer triks) and the leaves will NOT come out of the mold. Very sad as I had people really looking forward to purchasing these. Will have to discount cause the only way I can get leaves is to pipe a blob of green where they should be.

I Recommend This Product!
COMMENTS: This makes a beautiful soap. They sold very well at one of my holiday craft shows! Takes time and patience to pour in three colors to get the striped effect, but it was worth it! Hint: Use a paintbrush for the stripes and wait until the red soap has cooled a little bit. Then paint the red soap onto the stripes.
