Details


Chocko Spa BarsGoatmsilk and Golden Spa Minerals combine for a gentle, but moisturising spa bar soap.  Spa Minerals are gently exfoliating, and you can have them evenly suspended through the bar by pouring when the soap is a little cooler, or if you prefer a more concentrated cleanse, you can pour hotter and they will all settle in what will be the top of the bar.

Wildflower Honey Fragrance will enhance the colour of the spa minerals in this bar to a honey colour, if you would prefer to avoid this add the same quantity of Vanilla Colour Stabiliser as fragrance to keep the soap from discolouring.

The only colour in the soap is from our Golden Spa Minerals which have given a gorgeous peach colour. Of course if you prefer pink or green, choose a clay to suit your theme.

As you can see from the picture, I was in a bit of a hurry - that is why you can see the Spa Minerals on top, as well as through the bars!  This will give a very mild exfoliating effect, but I should have waited a minute or two more when the soap had cooled a little more and then the minerals would be evenly distributed through the soaps! 

What You’ll Need:

Method

  1. Dice the soap base into a double boiler and melt gently (or use a microwave safe bowl in the Microwave on medium low

  2. Whilst this is gently melting, take a small ceramic bowl, pyrex jug or glass beaker, combine the rest of the Ingredients and mix to eliminate lumps

  3. Stir these ingredients with a stainless steel spoon, and ensure there are no lumps (you can see I was in a bit of a hurry!)

  4. Allow the soap to cool for a few minutes stirring occasionally

  5. Now add fragrance mixture which contains the spa minerals and sodium Lactate,  gently stir to combine

  6. Allow to cool until it begins to become "syrupy" for best suspension of the spa minerals - stir occasionally to keep the clay suspended evenly

  7. Pour into moulds and allow to set up

  8. When completely cold remove from mould and repeat for the second batch  – wrap if desired to keep out moisture and prevent “sweating”
