Prep your work area and put on your safety gear. Next, make your lye solution. Then, weigh out and melt your soaping oils and butters. When your soaping ingredients are melted, separate 10 grams into a separate bowl. Add the titanium dioxide to this and stir well to make a paste.
Once the lye solution has cooled, add the sodium lactate. Stir well to incorporate.
When both the lye solution and soaping oils are between 90-100 degrees Fahrenheit, and within10 degrees of each other, combine them together. Stick blend for emulsion. Next, add the fragrance oil and the vanilla white color stabilizer to the soap batter, stick blend to incorporate.
Now, get your empty mixing bowl and the one with the titanium dioxide paste. To the empty bowl, add the neon blue soap colorant. Next, get your soap batter, and place 150 grams into the blue bowl and 150 grams to the titanium paste. Stir the blue colorant into the soap batter with a spoon. Then, set aside. To the remaining soap batter bowl, add and stir in the orange colorant. Finally, stick blend the titanium dioxide bowl.
Get Ready to Move! Now, starting with the blue soap batter drop several "plops" of it around the outside of orange soap batter bowl. Do this from a higher angle above the bowl. Repeat the same action with the white batter. When you have both colors in the orange soap, get your spatula.
With the bowl directly in front of you, drag the spatula is a clockwise pattern once through the bowl. Then, directly pick up the spatula.
Next, carefully pour the soap batter into the mold. Do this in a slow back and forth motion through the whole length of the mold. When the soap has step up enough, take any remaining soap batter and heap it on top. Finally, insulate.
After 24 hours, remove the soap from the mold. Then, using your mitre cutter or knife, slice the bars. Allow them to further cure before using.
