After countless discussions, my business team decided to make spa-based beauty products for an upcoming Market in Central Avenue, West Bridgford next Saturday at 1pm (lil self promo). One of our products is soap however we are making three different kinds: watermelon, stained glass and an icy blue soap. I had so much fun making the first batch I decided to make a blog post/soap tutorial on the watermelon one because it reminds me of summer the most.
All of the ingredients I used are vegetarian and don’t use harsh chemicals. I got all of them off eBay for reasonable prices.
-opaque soap base
-Clear soap base
-Red soap dye
-Green soap dye
-Essential oils (optional)
To start with I lined so loaf tins with cling film just to make sure the soap would come out once it had set. I then melted about 150g of opaque soap base and added some red dye until it went a pinky colour. I then poured it in to the loaf tin and let it set.
After the bottom layer of soap set I melted 75g of opaque soap and poured it straight on top. I melted another 75g of soap however this time I used the clear soap base. I also added some green dye and original source scrub to it which gave it the green freckly effect. Once everything had set I tipped out the loaf of soap and cut it into 10 equal slices. Ta-Dah!
Sneak peak at the blue soaps…;)
