Prep your work area. Then, put on your safety gear prior to getting started. Next, make your lye solution. Then, in a separate bowl, weigh out and combine your soaping oils and butters. Melt.
Once the lye solution has cooled, weigh out and add the sodium lactate. Stir to incorporate.
When both the lye solution and soaping ingredients are within 5-10 degrees of each other (anywhere between 90-100 degrees Fahrenheit), combine them together. Stick blend for emulsion. Next, add the fragrance oil to the soap batter, stick blend to incorporate.
Now, get your three mixing bowls for the colorants. Assign each bowl and individual color, then weigh out the colorant to each specific bowl. Then, get your soap batter, and place 300 grams into each bowl. Stir each colorant individually with a spoon. Once all colors are blended, set aside.
Get Ready to Move! To the remaining soap batter, add the titanium dioxide. Stick blend well to incorporate. Once your batter is completely blended, bring the soap batter over to your color soap bowls. Then, starting with the blue soap batter drop several "plops" of it into the white soap batter. Do this from a higher angle above the bowl. Repeat the same action with the teal batter, then finally with the neon green. Do this until all colored soap batter is in the white batter.
Now, for this step, you are going to do an in the pot swirl. Get your spatula and start by placing it in the bowl directly in front of you. Then, drag it straight up the center of the bowl. When you reach the top of the bowl, pick the spatula up. Now, starting on the right side, begin your swirls in an "s" or ribbon shaped pattern (using the spatula). Repeat on the left side. Do not over swirl.
Next, carefully pour the soap batter into the mold and 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.
