Coconut Mango Palm Free Scrub Cubes


Deliciously scented, the palm free Mango Butter Scrub Cubes, have a thin layer of Coconut Scrub Granules on one side, and moisturising soap in the main bar.


Equipment

1 litre or larger microwave safe jug (or crockpot)
1 small microwave safe jug
9 Cubes Silicone Soap Mould
Isopropyl Alcohol and Blue Spritz Bottle
Scales – useful but not essential
A square piece of card to cover the larger jug in the microwave
Pipette

Variations:

  • For a less tropical and a more unisex scent, I like Honey and Leather Fragrance in this project.

  • If you are making large volume pours, a crockpot is useful for the large volume of Mango Butter Soap Base.

  • To make this project using our regular natural soap bases, substitute with Clear and Cocoa Butter Melt and Pour Soap Bases and lower the temperatures in the instructions by about 15°C.


Method:

Coconut Mango Palm Free Scrub Cubes


Dice and weigh the soap bases into separate jugs or bowls
Melt the Neutral PF Soap Base to about 75°C, but don’t let it boil – heat in 30 second bursts and stir each time

Remove from microwave and spritz with alcohol and then add 3ml Coconut Mango Fragrance and stir well to combine

Now add the Coconut Scrub Granules and stir to combine

The temperature should be about 70°C now, and carefully pour a thin layer of this soap (2 – 4mm deep) into each of the cavities

Spritz with alcohol and allow to set up

Now place the Mango Butter Soap Base into the microwave and cover with the piece of card as this will take a little while to melt. 
Set to medium and begin melting in 1 – 2 minute bursts, stir and continue with this process until it is completely liquid
(this will take a little while which is why a crock pot is useful for larger batches).  Do watch this and stir as you don’t want it to boil

Once liquid, remove from microwave and stir well to ensure there are no lumps of unmelted soap base
Check the temperature and when it around 70°C add 15 - 17g/ml Coconut Mango Fragrance and stir well to combine

Check that the thin scrubby layer of soap is completely set in the cube mould, then spritz the surface of the set soap well with
Isopropyl Alcohol and begin pouring the scented mango butter soap into each cavity.

Stop pouring and spritz with alcohol every two or three cavities to remove any surface bubbles

When finished spritz again with Isopropyl Alcohol and allow several hours, or preferably overnight to set up.
To unmould, carefully release the airlock in the out sides of the cube cavities and then invert the mould. 
Press the heel of your hand on the base of the mould and the soap will begin to release down and you can take out each cube
Wrap as usual
