Shampoo Bar Recipe with Argan Oil Tutorial

This formula is a little different to our Shampoo Bar Kit in moisture and ingredients, but the tutorial and process is exactly the same.  This formula is softer and more 'gloppy' so it is easier for using with a silicone mould, but NOT suitable for using with Moon Cake presses as it will stick badly!  It is not pourable like custard, but pourable like heavily traced Cold Process Soap.  So if you would like to press your bars, our Shampoo Bar KIT is the way to go!

This is a semi cold processed recipe – you are only heating the ingredients to enable them to be mixed together, so no high heating is required.  This also goes towards a ‘green tick’ on sustainable processing/carbon footprint as you use so little electricity in producing your plastic-free shampoo bars!

Colour:  I used ONE only pigment scoop of Neon Lime Green Powder in this batch – and the pale sage green is the resulting colour.  You could also use your Brites for CP and Brites for MP if you have these on hand.  I don’t usually add colour to my shampoo bars, but I also made my last batch of Conditioner Bars in the same Flexible Twin Rectangle Mould so I needed to know which was which in the shower!  The addition of the colourant is totally personal preference.

Argan Shampoo Bars Recipe & Tutorial for Moulds 
Step One:  Prepare work surface and lay out equipment and separate the of the ingredients into their phases, each group in a separate glass or pyrex vessel.
Carefully place the Phase A ingredients into the larger microwave safe jug – POUR INGREDIENTS SLOWLY AND CAREFULLY TO AVOID CREATING ANY IRRITATING DUST.  Once moistened this is not an issue.
Add Phase B ingredients to the small jug
Add Phase C Ingredients into a small beaker or glass jug and stir until homogenous.  It may form a creamy liquid - clarity will depend on time of year. Set this aside.

Step Two:  Now warm in the large jug in the microwave for 30 - 60 seconds or so.  After warming the mixture in the jug, mix with a spoon working into a stiff paste.  You need to ensure the ingredients are of an even consistency irrespective of the weather.  If the ingredients do not stir easily, gently warm another 10 or 20 seconds.

This picture shows the Neon Lime Green Colourant as per  the colour reference above - this is just one Pigment Scoop of colourant. 
Also the rice grain shaped wax is actually old stock of BTMS 25, so if your pastilles are round, they are fine!

Step Three:  Warm the smaller jug in the microwave until liquid – take care not to overheat. Once the the Cocoa Butter and Conditioning Emulsifier are liquid remove.

Step Four:  Add the liquid Phase B ingredients to the Phase A ingredients in the larger jug and mix through well.

The mixture will become paste-like and the colour start to show pastel instead of 'neon' green.

Step Six:  Add the preservative and Fragrance or Essential Oil and mix well to combine.
Go cautiously with the Fragrance or Essential Oil – try adding half of the recommended amount and have a sniff.

Spoon the mixture into the mould cavities, pressing down quite firmly. Done!

Argan Shampoo Bars Recipe & Tutorial for Moulds

Leave the bars to dry out for a week or two before attempting to unmould.
Now dry for a few weeks or so and then store or wrap for sale.
It is important to ensure they become nice and hard before use!
