Handmade soap has long been included in the circle of familiar purchases of modern people. It is known that soap made from quality ingredients does not contain sodium lauryl sulfate harmful to the body, is rich in valuable oils and does not dry the skin. But few people know that the process of homemade soap making is not only extremely simple and accessible even to a student, but also extremely fascinating! With the help of this master class, we will try to prepare an interesting soap in the shape of a chocolate chip cookie cupcake. It will take:1. 150 gr. finished soap base; 2. 1 tsp base oil; 3. food coloring; 4. cosmetic fragrances; 5. Silicone molds for soap or baking; To begin, cut the soap base into cubes and put it into a fireproof container.
Then we melt it on water bath to a liquid state, no need to boil.You can melt the soap base in the microwave. When the desired consistency is reached, we pour the base into a mug, glass or other convenient dish.
First, add a teaspoon to the base oil base. In our lesson used coconut oil. It will make our soap softer.
Then drop by drop the food dye of brown color to obtain the desired shade. It is important to use only safe ingredients, because we want to get a natural useful soap.
After adding a perfume or food flavoring.
Finally, pour the future soap into the mold.
Novice soapmaker seldom manages to accurately calculate the amount of the basis for a particular shape.Therefore, it is often a little more than necessary. Keep small molds handy, in order to fill them with the remnants of the base, if necessary.
In our case, you can add oatmeal to the remains of the soap base for a light peeling effect.
If on the surface formed their bubbles l Gko clean with alcohol or perfume.
Forms for soap are plastic and silicone. An obvious advantage was the shape of the silicone. The main advantages of such forms: Withstand high temperatures, do not deform; Ready soap is convenient to extract. When using plastic, it is often possible to spoil the shape by pouring too hot into it. It happens that the finished soap does not want to be removed from the form. Such things can confuse the novice in this matter. But experienced soaps learned to avoid unpleasant situations of this kind, and successfully use forms of both kinds.So, the soap base in the form froze for 1 hour. To speed up the process of solidification, you can put the mold in the refrigerator. Now, with a deft hand movement, we remove the soap by simply removing the mold. We do the same with a small tart in the form of a toffee.
So, by spending 1 hour of time and very few funds, we got two pieces of wonderful homemade soap.
