Put on your safety gear and prep your work area. Then, make your lye solution. Now, weigh out and melt the soaping oils and butters. Once melted, separate out 10 grams and place it in one of your mixing bowls. Then, add the titanium dioxide to this and stir well to make a white paste.
When the lye solution has cooled, add and stir in the sodium lactate.
When both the lye solution and soaping oils are ready to be combined, do so. Then, stick blend for emulsion. Next, add the fragrance oil and once again, stick blend to incorporate.
Now, get your 2 empty mixing bowls. To the first bowl, add the neon pink soap colorant. To the second bowl add the neon yellow soap colorant. Then, to each bowl add 151 grams of soap batter. Using a spoon, stir each batter bowl to incorporate the color. Then, set aside.
To the remaining soap batter bowl, add the white paste and stick blend in to mix.
Get Ready to Move! Starting with the pink soap batter drop several "plops" in a clockwise like manner around the white soap batter bowl. Do this until all of the pink batter is gone. Then, repeat the same action with the yellow batter, aiming for different areas in the "clock ".
Now, drag the spatula is a large circular pattern once through the bowl. Directly pick up the spatula when completed.
Next, carefully and slowly pour the soap batter into the mold. While pouring, move the soap back and forth through the whole length of the mold. When the soap has set up enough, take the remaining soap and heap it on top. Finally, insulate.
After 24 hours, remove the soap from the mold. Then, with a knife, slice the bars. Allow them to further cure before using.
