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 was Very excited when I saw these molds because I work a lot of animè conventions, and I recognized some of these as the actual Japanese Kanji, which are the pictograms for the words.
After Googling them to be sure everything was actually what it said it was (always better safe than sorry, I say!), I couldn't buy them quickly enough!
These will make wonderful little soaps, and I'm going to try them out as bath bomb molds as well, giving them a Mica paint job after they harden up.
Not only do I think they will go well at the Animè conventions, but because of the popularity of Animè right now, I think they will be an all around best seller.
Kanji (pronounced Kan-gee) have always been popular anyway on everything from tranquil wall hangings to body art (tattoos), and have a wide appeal.
Once I see that these go over well, I will be back to get duplicates so I can make up multiples at a time.
These should make up lovely gift baskets, as well!
Don't forget to pick up Set 2 to go with these!
Thank you, WSP, for having such a wide diverse selection of molds for us to choose from.
• Actual Japanese Kanji w/translation! • Great Size for soap and fizzies • Popular selection (ie; Love, Peace, etc)
• I wouldn't mind these in silicone, too
