Beard Soap Recipe Get Familiar with the Soap Making Process

If this is your first time creating soap with lye, then you may want to read over a few of our classes for beginner soap makers. First, this Soap Making Safety class shares some basics, such as safe soapmaking practices, clean up, and the curing process. Additionally, the Soap Making Terminology class briefly shares soaper lingo and abbreviations that you may come across.

Finally, the classes of Making Your Own Soap Recipe  and Soap Making- Finding the Perfect Recipe explain the steps to creating a perfect bar of soap and creating your very own soap recipe. Further, the Soaping Oil Properties class goes over the impact different oils have on a bar of soap. On another note, you could create this beard soap recipe using a cold process method.  You would use the same ingredients, just a different process.  If you have never made cold process soap before, check out our Cold Process Soap Class 101.

 Beard Soap Recipe Soaping From Scratch Safety Reminders

First, you should always wear the appropriate protection when making soap from scratch. Lye that has not fully become soap can react with skin and cause damage. Plus, you will want to avoid breathing in the fumes created as you make your lye water So, you will want to wear a face mask to protect your lungs and keep you aware. Also, it is in your best interest to wear protective clothing, eye protection, and gloves.

You also want to make sure all of your materials needed are prepared prior to starting. Make sure that anything you use to create soap is never used for cooking or in other body products. Meaning, your crockpot should remain as your soaping crockpot. Simply find or buy a cheap device that you won’t miss in the kitchen.

Finally, never ever add the water to your lye. Adding water to the lye could be very dangerous, creating a volcanic effect! Instead, remember that you should slowly add your lye to your water slowly. Stirring the water slowly as well.

Beard Soap Recipe Explaining the Beneficial Properties of the Ingredients Used

If you are curious as to why we’ve used some of these oils in this soap, then check out the following explanation of our reasons for choosing these specific ingredients. First of all, coconut oil is wonderful for facial hair as it will condition hair all the way down to the roots, which softens and will make your beard appear healthier. Plus, you won’t have to deal with an oily residue feeling, since this oil isn’t as greasy as many others. Additionally, this recipe uses Jojoba Oil, which is very similar to oils in the skin, which makes Jojoba Oil a great facial moisturizer! Plus, we included another great oil that can get all the way down to the pores, olive oil pomace. This oil not only helps repair follicles, but leaves a nice shine.

Next, shea butter is wonderful for repairing hair damage, moisturizing, and promoting healthy growth. Also, we included sweet almond oil to help with any ingrown facial hairs and reducing hair loss. Plus, castor oil was added as it contains vitamin E, minerals, antibacterial properties, and anti-fungal properties. Plus, it can help reduce split ends and lead to a thicker beard, due to its conditioning strength. Further, cocoa butter is perfect for healthy facial hair as it strengthens the hair and add volume. Then, we used Lanolin to care for the skin beneath your beard  to protect against dry skin and burns. Additionally, the Gurjan Balsam Essential Oil is very beneficial for eliminating and preventing dandruff from your beard by cleansing the scalp of this dry skin. Finally, we added sesame seed oil to act as a natural sunscreen as well as prevent premature graying of hair and help darken your hair.

Beard Soap Recipe Weighing and Melting Your Soaping OilsBeard Soap Recipe Weighing and Melting Your Soaping Oils

First, you are going to prepare all of the beneficial soaping oils and butters for this hot process soaping recipe. So, you are going to tare the weight of one of your mixing bowls on the scale. Then, weigh out 272 grams of the Shea Butter, 272 grams of the Cocoa Butter Golden Natural, 163 grams of the Sweet Almond Oil, 68 grams of the Olive Oil Pomace, 68 grams of the Sesame Seed Oil, 41 grams of the Lanolin, 340 grams of the Coconut Oil 76, 68 grams of the Castor Oil, and 68 grams of the Jojoba Oil into the same bowl.

Now, you are going to melt all of your weighed soaping oils and butters. So, you will turn your crockpot on to a low setting. Then, place all of your oils and butters into this crockpot. You will heat the oils until they are all in a liquid state. You may want to stir these ingredients as they are melting to be sure the oils do not burn. While you are waiting for the oils and butters to melt, you may want to start creating your lye water mixture.

Beard Soap Recipe Creating Your Lye WaterBeard Soap Recipe Creating Your Lye Water

Next, you will be creating the lye water phase for your hot process soap recipe. You will want to do this in a well ventilated area. If you are not in a vented area, then go to one for this step. Also, make sure that you are wearing the necessary skin, safety gear. Then, separately weigh your 517 grams of the Distilled Water and your 182 grams of the Lye in two small bowls.  After, place your lye water in front of your and grab a rubber spatula. Gently stir the water as you slowly add the previously weighed amount of lye. This will create fumes, so make sure you are wearing your safety mask. Also, remember that you should never add water to the lye.

Beard Soap Recipe Mixing Your Oils and Lye SolutionBeard Soap Recipe Mixing Your Oils and Lye Solution

Now, you are going to begin combining the lye water with your melted oils in the crockpot. When combining the lye solution and oils it leads to a chemical reaction that makes soap. As you create this soap, be careful as you take your lye water and add it to your crockpot with the melted oils.

While we would normally worry about the temperatures of the oil and water phases in cold process soap, we are using hot process soap. This means that the ingredients can be combined at different temperatures as they will be heated together in the crockpot anyways. Now, stick blend the mixture as it is in the crockpot until the batter reaches trace. If you aren’t sure, trace is the point in which the soap batch begins to get a bit thicker and an almost pudding-like consistency. Typically, I will take some of the batch up in a spatula and allow it to fall as I move the spatula back and forth across the top. If there is a slight line left on top of your batter, then you are at trace. If not, keep on mixing until you can see the trace!

Beard Soap Recipe Placing the Lid on the CrockpotBeard Soap Recipe Placing the Lid on the Crockpot

After you reach trace, you can place the lid on your crockpot to allow the batch to cook. However, you won’t simply leave the batch entire unattended. But, you will want to stir your batch periodically to allow the batter to be heated evenly. Otherwise, the bottom of your batch may burn. So, not stirring could lead the soap to not form correctly.

Additionally, the time that it will take for your soap to finish could vary. Typically, it should take about an hour to finish cooking, but this depends on each individual crock pot and the exact temperature that is given on the low setting. So, you will need to determine the end point by the appearance of the soap batch as it is cooking. You will need to wait for the batter to look like mashed potatoes and the consistency will feel as thick as mashed potatoes as well. Now, you’ll be ready for the next step.

Beard Soap Recipe Adding the Essential OilBeard Soap Recipe Adding the Essential Oil

Once your soap batter takes on the appearance of mashed potatoes, it will be time to incorporate the scent. Not only does the Gurjan Balsam Essential Oil add a nice, manly scent, but this ingredient provides some benefits to your beard, which were described above. Now, weigh out 100 grams of the Gurjan Balsam Essential Oil. Then, mix this essential oil into the batter well to ensure that it is fully incorporated.

Beard Soap Recipe Placing Your Soap Batter into the MoldsBeard Soap Recipe Placing Your Soap Batter into the Molds

Next, you are going to take the finished soap batter and fill your silicone soap molds. So, retrieve your clean 4 cavity silicone soap mold and place it on the surface of your work space. Then, fill each of the mold cavities with your hot process soap batter to create four individual loaves of Beard Soap.

Also, you will want to try to eliminate any are pockets that could be created as you transfer the soap. So, lift and tap the filled molds on the table top a few times. This will help release any air bubbles that may be trapped under the surface. Then, just let your soap loaves harden and cool in a place where they won’t be moved.

BBeard Soap Recipe Finishing Up the Hot Process Soapseard Soap Recipe Finishing Up the Hot Process Soaps

Finally, you can remove your hardened soaps from their molds. While cold process soaps need to cure for a about a month, this recipe is made using the hot process soaping method. This method will speed up the curing process with heat to make sure that all of the lye has reacted with the oils and butters. Thus, the lye will not be able to cause damage to the skin. Meaning, this awesome beard soap will be ready for immediate use! After, you can cut your soap loaves into usable sized bars of beard soap. Also, the mitre box and cutter will be helpful in cutting your finished soaps. These tools make it easier to cut your loaves and keep the cuts sharp and even. Also, using these will help to cut the loaf into more evenly sized bars. Now, your hot process beard soaps are ready to use, wash, and protect your beard!

As you can tell from this blog, we only included the best oils for your beard! So, clean and care for your beard at the same time with this amazing beard soap!
