Confetti Soap, Part 4

On October 1st, I showed the finished batch of Confetti Soap using shreds. Today, I’ll show you the finished batch of Confetti Soap using chunks.

Collect needed supplies:
Soap we made on October 1st, cut into chunks
Hydrogenated Soybean Oil
Coconut Oil
Sweet Almond Oil
Fragrance Oil of your choice (I’m going to be using Pears & Berries Fragrance Oil)
Scale

Recipe in ounces:
40 ounces weight Hydrogenated Soybean Oil
20 ounces weight Coconut Oil
20 ounces weight Sweet Almond Oil

30 fluid ounces water
11.1 ounces weight sodium hydroxide

1.4 ounces of Pears & Berries Fragrance Oil

24 ounces of soap chunks from soap made on Thursday. I used 8 ounces of each color.

Weighing time: 8 minutes
Adding lye to water: 5 seconds, followed by 60 seconds of stirring
Heating of oils time: 2 minutes
Pouring lye solution into the fat mixture: 5 seconds
Using immersion blender to mix soap solution: 2 minutes
Mix shreds or chunks into the soap solution: 30 seconds

Notes:
You will want to make sure that the soap is thicker than the water thin trace that we generally have. This will prevent the soap shreds from settling to the bottom of soap.

Have fun!

  1. Hi,

    I had a quick question… I read some where that you could add melt n pour objects to cold press soap to make for easier decorating… is that true? If so I would love to know more about it!

    1. You can do this but be forewarned, the melt and pour soap can easily separate from the cold process soap in the shower. For your own use, you can try all you want. If you sell your soap, please do adequate testing first.

  2. Hi Andee,
    I saw in you oatmeal soap that you used a cutting tool, but I didn’t find it in you catalog. Do you sell them at all or can you recommend where to get one?
