There are quite a few different kinds of oils for soap making. Each type of cosmetic oil has different properties that can be used to create batches of soap with different qualities. The main qualities that these oils can provide for your soap are hardness, cleansing, conditioning, bubbly lather, and creamy lather.

While this oil is not very conditioning, this can be countered by superfatting the recipe. Since this oil can strip the skin of natural oils and leave the skin dry when used above 30-35%, you can use a higher amount of other oils that are highly conditioning for the skin. This will allow your bar to be cleansing as well as moisturizing. We recommend no more than 20% of oil for soap making in your recipe.

Soap Without PalmSoap Without Palm

Today’s recipe, Soap Without Palm, is a cold process soap recipe using Natures Garden’s Vanilla Champagne Fragrance Oil.  Often soapers will avoid certain fragrances due to the discoloration it cause to the soap.  We thought we would show you a way to use this discoloration to your advantage.  Our Vanilla Champagne Fragrance Oil has a vanillin content of 4%, causing the soap to discolor to a caramel.  We thought this was the absolute perfect color for out soap.  This fragrance also has an amazing scent retention.  So, we used all of these qualities to our advantage by scenting only the portion we wanted to discolor.  We left part of our batch unscented.  I know you are probably think the soap couldn’t possibly smell as strong.  Well let me tell you, IT SMELLS FABULOUS!

Soap Without Palm Preparing the EmbedsFirst, prepare your colorant.  Weigh out 3 grams of gold mica.  Then, add 6 grams of vegetable glycerin.  Mix well.  You will use this colorant for both the melt and pour soap and a small amount of the cold process soap portion. We will need the colorant once the mp soap is melted.  Use your scale to weigh out 115 grams of Natures Garden’s SLS Free Melt and Pour Soap Base.  Next, melt the base.  Once it’s melted, add 5 grams of Vanilla Champagne Fragrance Oil.  Now, add 1 gram of the gold colorant you just prepared.  Mix well to incorporate the ingredients.

Soap Without Palm Preparing the Embeds
Next, pour the melt and pour soap into the champagne bottle mold.  Then, spray any air bubbles you notice with rubbing alcohol.  The rubbing alcohol will help release any air bubble.  Allow the melt and pour soap to set up.  Once they have set up you can remove them from the mold and set them aside for now.  These will be placed on the top of the cold process soap when we finish.

Soap Without Palm Prepare Your Lye Solution

Soap Without Palm Preparing the Lye Water
First, you will want to wear gloves, a mask, and goggles while preparing this recipe.  Begin by weighing out 517 grams of distilled water.  Slowly add 189 grams of lye to your distilled water.  Make you stir to dissolve all of the lye.  Set your lye water where it will not be disturbed.  Allow the temperature to drop to room temperature.

Soap Without Palm Prepare Your Soaping Oils

Soap Without Palm Preparing the Oils
Weigh out 408 grams of coconut oil 76, 272 grams of shea butter, 272 grams of mango butter, 136 grams of sunflower oil, 136 grams of meadowfoam seed oil, 68 grams of castor oil, and 68 grams of apricot kernel oil.  Melt the oils using a double boiler.  Once melted allow the temperature to drop to room temperature.  While you are waiting, move to the next step.

Soap Without Palm Prepare Your Other Ingredients

Soap Without Palm Prepare Your Other IngredientsWhile we are waiting for our temperatures to drop, let’s go ahead and prepare our other ingredients.  First, we will weigh out our sodium lactate.  In a small bowl weigh out 55 grams of sodium lactate.  This will later be added to our cooled lye solution, set it aside for now.  Next, we will weigh out our Vanilla Champagne Fragrance Oil.  We will be adding the fragrance oil to only a portion of the cp soap batter.  Use a scale to weigh out 54 grams of Vanilla Champagne Fragrance Oil.  Finally, we will mix the titanium dioxide into some oil.  This will be used to color our white portion of the soap.  In a small bowl, weigh out 15 grams of titanium dioxide.  Add 25 grams of your oils to this bowl.  Mix well until the colorant is nice and smooth.

Soap Without Palm Oil Preparing Your Soap Batter

IMAG2524_1
First, you will need to combine your soaping oils and lye solution.  Use a stick blender to emulsify.  Next, separate the batter.  In a small bowl weigh out 43 grams of the soap batter.  This portion will be unscented and colored gold.  Add the remaining gold colorant you prepared earlier.  Mix well to incorporate the color.  Then, add this soap batter to your decorating bottle.  Set this aside, for now.  We will use this later to place dots, resembling bubbles, on the top of the soap loaf.

IMAG2521_1
The remaining batter will be separated into two bowls.  The first bowl will be colored white and left unscented.  So, add 800 grams of soap batter to the bowl.  Now, add the titanium mixture you prepared earlier.  Then, stick blend to incorporate the color.  We will use 515 grams of this batter to swirl in the loaf, and 285 grams to top the loaf.

 

IMAG2526_1
Finally, the rest of the cp soap batter will be scented.  You will need to add the 54 grams of Vanilla Champagne Fragrance Oil.  Stick blend to incorporate the fragrance oil.  This portion of your soap batter will be left uncolored.  We will be keeping the batter its natural color, using the discoloration to our advantage.  We feel that the natural discoloration of this fragrance in soap beautifully represents the fragrance oil.

Soap Without Palm Swirling the CP Soap Batter

IMAG2531_1
Now, the fun part.  Let’s swirl our batter.  To the bowl containing the scented soap, add plops of the white batter.  Keep in mind you will need to save about 285 grams of the white for the top of the loaf.  Once you have added the white, use a spatula to swirl the soap.  Place the spatula in the bowl and move it in a circular motion throughout the bowl.

Soap Without Palm Pouring the Soap Batter

IMAG2532_1

 

When you are satisfied with your swirls, we will pour the soap batter into the mold.  Get your square loaf mold out.  Pour the swirled cp soap batter into the mold.

 

IMAG2537_1

 

Now, we will use the remaining white soap batter to top the loaf.  Once your batter is a thick frosting like consistency, use a spatula to place it on top of the loaf.  Use the spatula to create peaks in the batter.

 

Soap Without Palm Adding the Finishing Touches

IMAG2538_1
Finally, we will be decorating the top of the soap.  Using the soap batter you placed in the decorating bottle, place dots on top of the white soap.  These are meant to represent bubbles.  Once you have finished, place the champagne bottle embeds across the loaf.  You want to keep in mind that you will be cutting the loaf, so place them strategically.  Make sure you push them in slightly at the bottom of the bottle so it looks like the champagne bottle is tilted.

After about 24 hours remove the soap from the mold.  Then, slice the soap using the mitre box and soap cutter.  Your soap will be ready to use once it cures.  We hope that you enjoy making this soap recipe as much as we have.  We found this particular recipe gave us plenty of time to work.  It was so easy to work with.  Post a picture of your cold process soap on our Facebook page, or tag us on Instagram @ngscents.
