California Prop 65 Statement:
This product is not on the CA Prop 65 list of toxic chemicals.
International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients (INCI): This product does need to be listed on the product ingredient label.
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: I have to admit that I am not a fan of this mold. I have used pipettes to fill in the flower and letters (I wanted these features to be a different color than the rest of the soap), but because of the sloped sides the soap easily runs out, especially from the flower. I finally gave up trying it for soap and used it for a solid bubble bar and it came out looking nice. I will try again with just a single pour (color) of soap and see how that looks.
COMMENTS: Have not used it yet. My imagination is still working on how to make it beautiful and unique with different details and relaxing colors and scents to appeal to those who do meditation and yoga. I am sure this will be a big hit for gift baskets for relaxation and spa kits.
