 Crisp Cotton Palm Free ITJ Melt & Pour Soap Swirl

 

Our Palm Free Melt & Pour Soap Base is probably the easiest MP Soap Base to swirl we have ever used, so I have been stuck in a bit of a swirling groove during our trials with this new base.  I'm planning new non-swirled projects next though!

I still love swirling this base, so here is a beginner ITJ pictorial tute (well, if it was Cold Process Soap it would be "In the Pot", but as it's Melt and Pour Soap it's in the Jug!), featuriing the lovely fresh Crisp Cotton Fragrance.  We actually made two colours, the yellow and the blue one, so if using "Add to trolley button" and you only want to make one coloured soap, just remove the other colour from your trolley.  If you are making two different coloured pours, just divide the fragrance and soap base into two batches.

Our Palm Free Soap range have a much higher melt and set up temperature, so bear this in mind as you craft this base, it's best poured at 70°C.
To make SIX soaps of one colour range (ie blue and white) use the ingredients below.

Ingredients:


Equipment:

 

 Method:

Dice and weigh soap bases into separate jugs and then melt the first two jugs - one Goatsmilk (or White) and one Neutral
Check the temperature - both should be 70 to 75°C

Add a few drops of Brites NG Sky Blue into the Neutral base, and 10g/ml (2 teaspoons) Crisp Cotton Fragrance.  Stir well to combine.
Now add 10g/ml (2 teaspoons) Crisp Cotton Fragrance to the Goatsmilk Base and stir in thoroughly

Now carefully pour the Goatsmilk soap into the blue coloured soap - do this slowly, and DO NOT STIR!

Slowly pour into the first cavity until filled - the soap will swirl around in the mould all by itself!

Spray with Isopropyl Alcohol to remove surface bubbles

Continue with all the base as described above - it will swirl as you pour into the mould cavities

If you divided the base, now repeat for the yellow portion, if not continue with the blue and white

Spritz with Isopropyl Alcohol again and allow to set up completely - usually for several hours.

Unmould and then wrap soap as usual


If using "Add to trolley button" and you only want to make one coloured soap, just remove the other colour from your trolley.  Also, the trolley contains 2kg of soap base, which will make 2+ batches of this recipe (16 bars of soap)
