I’m back everyone! I finished my remake of my Tiger Swirl Soap, without adding any sodium lactate, and it turned out absolutely wonderful! Now we’re bringing you the great recipe for this beautiful soap, and it is the perfect one to bring you right into the spring season with its wonderfully bright colors! We have used our Shea Butter Cold Process Soap recipe for the base.
272 grams of Olive Oil
181 grams of Palm Oil
181 grams of Coconut Oil
272 grams of Shea Butter
345 grams of Lye
69 grams of Mint Mango Tea Fragrance Oil
15 grams of Titanium Dioxide
4 grams of Neon Orange FUN Soap Colorant
6 grams of Lime Green FUN Soap Colorant
125 grams of Distilled Water
Other Ingredients Needed:
Always start with safety first! Before preparing anything, make sure that you are wearing your safety glasses, gloves, and mask! Once you are protected, you can prepare your lye water. Measure and weigh out 345 grams of water. Then measure and weigh out 125 grams of lye. Carefully add your lye to your water, then mix together thoroughly. Set your lye aside to cool down.
While you are waiting for the lye water to cool, you can go ahead and get your butters and oils ready. Measure and weigh out 272 grams of Shea Butter, 181 grams of Coconut Oil, 181 grams of Palm Oil, and 272 grams of Olive Oil. Then melt them your oils and butters down until they are completely melted. Once they are melted, set your bowl aside for it to cool as well.
While you are waiting for both your lye water and oils to cool, you can get your colors ready. In one mixing bowl, measure and weigh out 4 grams of Neon Orange colorant, and 6 grams of Lime Green colorant into another. In a third bowl, measure and weigh out 15 grams of titanium dioxide.
One your lye water and oils are around 100 degrees Fahrenheit and within 10 degrees of each other, they are ready to be mixed. Then pour just a little bit of your cooled oils into the bowl with titanium dioxide. Mix it thoroughly until it has become a paste-like consistency. Then go ahead and pour your lye water into your butters and oils. Mix it together thoroughly.
Next, pour 477 grams of your mixture into each bowl with your green and orange colorants.
In the base bowl, add your titanium dioxide paste and mix thoroughly until your mixture has turned completely white. Then thoroughly mix your green and orange bowls until you have achieved an all over orange color and an all over green.
Once you have thoroughly mixed your colors, add 24 grams of your Mint Mango Tea fragrance to each bowl, and again thoroughly mix each bowl. Then you can begin to pour your bowls into your mold. We started with our orange, and carefully poured just a little bit into a straight line across the mold. Do the same with your green, pouring into the center of the orange line.
Same with the white, pouring it right into the middle of the orange. Keep doing this technique alternating your colors until you have almost filled your mold.
Once you have finished pouring your colors, take the remainder of each and dollop it around on the top of your soap, using all of your remaining soap.
Then take your skewer and carefully circle it throughout the top of your soap, mixing the dollops together thoroughly. This will achieve a beautiful swirl effect on top.
Make sure to let your soap sit for at least 24 hours to fully set up before removing it from your mold.
Make sure to wait about 4 to 6 weeks before actually using your soap, giving it enough time to cure. After the 4 to 6 weeks have passed, your Mint Mango Soap will be ready for you to use and enjoy!
