Melt and Pour Soap BenefitsMelt and Pour Soap Benefits

We at Natures Garden would like to share some of the melt and pour soap benefits with customers that may not know too much about soaping. There are quite a few different methods one can use to create soaps, so it can be a bit overwhelming for new soapers. Every method has some benefits that you may enjoy, but you must choose the method that will be best for you and the situation you are in.

While many find melt and pour soap to be one of the easier ways to make soap at home, even the most experienced soapmaker may come back to this method. Honestly, it all depends on what the soaps are needed for and the time you have available. So, at one point or another, anyone can benefit from knowing a bit about this method. If you have never used melt and pour soap or are thinking about trying this method again, then we’d like to share with you all of the great things about melt and pour soap. So, here is why melt and pour soap is a great soap making method!

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Great for Beginning Soap MakersMelt and Pour Soap Benefits Great for Beginning Soap Makers

Due to a few different aspects of this soap making method, beginning soap makers may want to start with this method. This is an easy way to introduce soap making into your crafting. This method won’t have you working with lye right out of the gate. This can help prevent you from feeling overwhelmed with everything all at once. Instead, a new soap maker can get used to the time sensitive nature of cooling soap, adding fragrance oils, and coloring soap. Plus, this method skips right to the fun of creating to let you experience all the fun. Melt and pour soap allows you to have fun trying out soap making before jumping into more complex methods. You can create very simple soaps that are still cute with this method without taking too much time or skill to complete.

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Creativity and Additional Ingredients

There is so much that you can do with melt and pour soap! As long as you have some molds, additives, and a creative mind you can make anything you want. Further, you can look to our Melt & Pour Soap Recipes page for soap making inspiration and ideas. In addition, you can print out the step by step soap making tutorials for each project on that page. While melting soap and pouring it into molds may sound like it is simple and boring, we can show you that there is so much that you can create with this method of soap making.

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Manipulating the Shape of the SoapMelt and Pour Soap Benefits Manipulating the Shape of the Soap

Since melt and pour soap will take on the shape of whatever it sets up in, it is pretty easy to shape the soap into whatever you’d like. For example, our Lollipop Soap Recipe used a flat shaped soap layer and cut it into strips that we curled to create a lollipop appearance. Also, the Fresh Fallen Leaves Soap Recipe used straws to have soap shaped like a tree trunk. This along with the melt and pour soap leaves created a very pretty soap! Plus, you can make more simple soaps that are super cute like the Neapolitan Cupcake Soap Recipe, which uses a layered cupcake base and whipped frosting on top.

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Adding Herbs and MicaMelt and Pour Soap Benefits Adding Herbs and Mica

Also, you can incorporate micas and even herbs into your soap! You can take your chosen additives and include it right into your melted soap. We have done this with our Blarney Stone Soap Recipe. Gold mica was added to the clear melt and pour soap base and can be seen incorporated right into the soap bar. So, you can use this technique to create a prettier appearance for your soaps. Additionally, you can add herbs or powders to provide your soap with certain properties. For example, we created the Activated Charcoal Soap Recipe with activated charcoal powder to provide a more cleansing bar of soap that provides a deep pore clean. Regardless of why you want to add herbs, mica, or other powders, the best part is that you have the option to if you need it!

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Making Embed SoapMelt and Pour Soap Benefits Making Embed Soap

Additionally, you can add soap embeds to your melt and pour soap bars. This technique gives you the freedom to create even more creative kinds of soap. This would have you create a smaller soap prior to creating your soap bar so that you can add shapes into the soap bar itself.

While it will all be melt and pour soap, you will be able to use the embedded soap to create designs or certain effects. For example, creating the swirl for the Cinnabun Melt and Pour Soap Recipe. We wanted to add a swirl to make the soap bar look more like a cinnamon roll and less plain after we cut our soap loaf. Plus, it just looks so cute! Also, we used this embed soap idea to make the seeds for our Watermelon Soap Recipe. Otherwise, our soap wouldn’t have looked like a slice of watermelon! Sometimes the embed soap really pulls your soap idea together!

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Option to Make Clear Soap

Another creative option unique to melt and pour soap is creating a bar that you can see straight into. We all know that we can see embed soaps by cutting a loaf of soap into a few individual bars. However, diamond clear melt and pour soap offers another way to get creative with embed soaps. You can create a bar of soap with solid shapes and colors inside that you will be able to see without cutting.

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Mango Loofah Melt and Pour Soap RecipeSimply add a layer of diamond clear soap, place your solid object or colored soap inside, and add your top layer. This leaves you with a solid bar of soap with a fun design inside. We have used this method to create the Mango Loofah Melt and Pour Soap Recipe, where you can see the loofah inside the soap bar. Another idea is to use this soap technique to create kids toys with fun little toys inside. 

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Some Choice with the Ingredients

While you aren’t in complete control of the ingredients that are in your soap base, there are some things that you can do. First of all, you can choose your type of soap base. There are a lot of different melt and pour soap bases to choose from that all have different ingredients. For example, you can choose the SLS FREE Glycerin Melt and Pour Soap if you are looking for soap base without SLS. We have a lot of different types that may suit your individual soaping needs on Natures Garden’s Melt and Pour Soap page. Some of my favorites are our Shea Butter MP Soap Base and the Honey MP Base. Whether you are looking for a with a little extra of something, soap without a certain ingredient, or a base with a certain appearance, you can find all our soap bases on our site.

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Controlling Certain IngredientsMelt and Pour Soap Benefits Controlling the Ingredients

Not only can you choose different types of soap base to control the ingredients, but you are in control of scenting and coloring. If you have sensitive skin or allergies, then you can create melt and pour soaps that agree with your skin. First, those with sensitivities to fragrances and essential oils can leave the bar unscented. Also, those that would rather not use liquid soap dye can use natural herbs to color the soap or leave the soap it’s natural color. Thus, you do have some control over the content of your soap bars.

Furthermore, you can add a little bit more of your favorite oils of butters to the soap base you choose. If you find a soap base that has all the ingredients you like, but you wish that it included another ingredient, you have the freedom to add something else. However, you need to be careful not to add too much as this can change the bar and could lose its lather. So, we would not recommend introducing more than a tablespoon of your added oils or butters per pound of mp soap. But, you can play with your recipe to find the right proportion for your soap bars.

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Convenience of this Method

Another great reason to work with melt and pour soap is that it is super easy to create soaps! This soap making method is very simple in every way from prepping to create the soap to the clean up process. So, let’s go over all the ways that melt and pour soap making saves you time and effort.

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Can Use the Soap Immediately

Also, you can use your soaps immediately after you make them. Obviously, the melt and pour soap base has been previously created and gone through saponification before you buy the melt and pour soap base. While you don’t have to worry about the lye, the soap already has it in the soap. But, the lye that was used to make the soap has already had time to fully react before the soap bases were sold. This means that the curing process has already completely finished before you even open the soap package. So, no need to wait after you form your masterpieces! As soon as your soaps are colored, scented, and out of their molds it can go straight into the bath tub! This is wonderful because you don’t have to worry about waiting long enough to prevent irritation and you can use the soap right away with no waiting.

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Quick, Easy, and Fun

Furthermore, this soap making method is perfect for those that are in a hurry to have their soaps done. If you need to get your soaps ready quick for a gathering, a gift, or just excited to use it yourself, then this is a good soaping choice. Everything about this soaping method is quicker. In the beginning, there are fewer preparations and after you finish there is no curing time before using the soap. So, you will have your finished soaps ready as soon as everything has set up and popped out of the molds.

Also, melt and pour soap making is perfect for those that are in the mood to skip right to the creative part of soap making. Since melt and pour soap already has the first few steps of the soaping process complete, you don’t need to worry about these. So, you will have more time and energy to focus on creating super cute soap! You are left with the coloring, scenting, and shaping of your soaps. Simply melt the soap, fill your molds, and get creative.  This soap method is an easy way to get right to the fun part of soap making!

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits No Need to Deal with LyeMelt and Pour Soap Benefits No Need to Deal with Lye

While lye is safe with the necessary safety precautions, sometimes it is just easier to let somebody else do all the leg work. In this case, our melt and pour soap base lets you buy your slabs of soap after they have cured. Thus, there is a lot less to prepare when working with melt and pour soap. For example, you won’t need to take as many safety precautions or wear as much protective clothing during the creation of your soap. Also, you won’t have to deal with making the lye water solution or combining the oils at the right temperature. So, no need to have vinegar handy because lye burns won’t ever happen with this soaping method. Thus, melt and pour soap making is just that much easier to work with!

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Clean Up Is Easy

Further, the clean up for this method is very easy. Since this the melt and pour soap base is already completed soap, all you really need to do is wash your utensils with water. No need to worry about unreacted lye and no intense scrubbing or vinegar required. Just like soap, your left over base will rinse right out of your bowl.
