This two tone look is reminiscent of the two-tone cupcake icing and meringues that are so trendy right now. Once whipped, our Foamy Bath Butter has a mousse-like texture, never separates and rinses away cleanly. The result is a whipped, lightly textured, cleansing cream soap.
We packaged this whip in our 240ml Double Wall Jars which makes a really good sized container for gifting. If you wanted to see the colours through the sides of the container take a look at Economy Tubs or our 200ml Bail Jars which are great for presentation too. Label either on the lid, or use a swing tag using elastic thread to secure around the rim under the lid. Dressed with a Wooden Bath Scoop, they are very appealing.
There is no heating required, Foamy Bath Butter is whipped cold at room temperature. We use a regular hand held electric balloon whisk to whip it or a stand mixer with the balloon whisk attachment for larger batches.
What you need to make this creamy scoopable soap:
- Electric balloon whisk or stand mixer
- 2 x Medium - Large mixing bowls or jugs
- 2 x Large ziplock bags or piping bag
- Place half the Foamy Butter Base into each of the jugs or bowls
- Using an electric balloon whisk, squish the beaters into the base and set the mixer on medium and begin whip the bath butter. If the base is very hard (in winter) 30 - 60 seconds or so in the microwave will soften the base
- Increase the speed to high as the base begins to soften up
- After whipping one jug or bowl, repeat for the other half of the Foamy Bath Butter
- Add half of the herbal extract or fixed oil you are using to each bowl, and also half of the Fragrance or Essential Oil
- Whip the mixture again ultil it is really light and fluffy
- Now I add colourant to each jug in a contrasting colour to match your scent choice. If you want a solid colour, beat the mixture thoroughly. If you want a streaky look, use a spatula to mix the colour through so it is still a little streaky, but without leaving a large portion of undiluted colour
- It is time to fill the ziplock bag! It can but a little tricky fitting the full kilo of themixture into a ziplock - if you feel it going to be, use half of each bowl two portions
- Fold back the zip part of the bag, making a cuff and spoon in each coloured soap, I like to stand the bag in a Pyrex jug with the cuff on the outside so there is less mess. I put one colour in one corner and the other half in the opposite corner so that when it is piped out it forms a semi swirl (like meringue or cupcake icing). As you seal the zip, lightly press out any air and then twist the zip part ready to be piped
- Cut off a few millimeters from one of the bottom corners of the bag, and then pipe directly into the container you have chosen (Economy Tubs, Bail Jars, Wide Neck Tubs. or 240ml Double Wall Jar)
- Put on the lids, label the containers and you are done!
If you prefer an exfoliating cream soap, all these work well in our Foamy Bath Butter:
- Shredded Loofah for body scrubs
- Bamboo Powder for facial application
- Jojoba Beads for face or body application
- Natural Clays if you would like it to be a little drawing and more deeply cleansing
- For a natural yummy buttery colour, try using some Infused Carrot Oil or an apricot coloured scrub
- If using vanilla based scents, don't forget they will discolour the soap from a deep cream to a dark brown, so take this into account when planning your soap and add some Vanilla Colour Stabiliser
