Ingredients Spotlight: SLSA

Before getting into the recipe, we wanted to give you some more information about some of the ingredients that we are going to be working with. The first one that we will be talking about is Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate, which can be abbreviated as SLSA. This is a new product that we recently brought to Natures Garden Wholesale Supplies. It is a surfactant that can be used as an alternative to other surfactants such as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) or Sodium Cocoyl Isentionate (SCI). These Sangria Scoopable Bubble Bars are one of the three different recipes we created to showcase this new product. When compared to other surfactants like these, SLSA provides a lot more of foaming and lathering qualities to different types of bath and body products. It is most commonly added to recipes like bubble bars, bath bombs, bubble baths, and also body and facial washes. Since it derives from coconut oil and palm oil, SLSA is very cleansing and moisturizing for the skin. We are excited for you all to try this new ingredient out in your upcoming recipes!

We will be sharing all three of the recipes that we made using SLSA for, all in separate blogs. The other ones are a sangria body scrub, pink sangria soap, and sangria bath bombs. We hope that you will enjoy working with this new surfactant as much as we did.

Ingredients Spotlight: Jojoba OilIngredients Spotlight: Jojoba Oil

The next ingredient that we want to tell you about is Jojoba oil. It is used in countless types of recipes, including cold process soap, lip balm, lip stick, emulsified scrubs, and bath bombs. This oil is extremely versatile because of the positive benefits it brings to different body products and cosmetic formulations. Jojoba oil has anti inflammatory and moisturizing properties in it that reduce redness, dry skin, and other sensitive skin conditions such as eczema and rosacea. There are a lot of benefits to using it, it is an easy oil to work with, as well as to create recipes with. In addition to this one, we have used it in an Activated Charcoal Scrub, a Honey Vanilla Lip Balm, and our Sandalwood Bath Bomb. Each of these is cleansing, moisturizing, and will make you and your skin feel nice and rejuvenated!

Ingredients Spotlight: Sangria Punch Fragrance OilIngredients Spotlight: Sangria Punch Fragrance Oil

Lastly, we wanted to talk about the fragrance oil that we are incorporating and highlighting in today’s recipe. We call this Sangria Punch, which is actually one of the many Natures Garden original fragrance oils. Sangria punch fragrance oil is a complex scent, starting with very fruity top notes that to us, truly resemble a homemade sangria. There are hints of apple, lemon, lime, orange and grape. Following that are the scents of blackberries and pomegranate, which really compliment one another. These fruity notes sit on a base of sugar. We think that this fragrance definitely captures the smell of real sangria and makes for a great scent to add to girly bath product recipes. We have used this fragrance oil in four products that we have made using. Once again, the other craft recipes we created are the Pink Sangria Soap Recipe, Sangria Bath Bombs Recipe, and the Sparkling Sangria Body Scrub Recipe.

Before we get started, it is important to clean and sanitize your work area and all of your packaging materials. It is suggested that you wear gloves, an apron, gloves, a face mask, and a hair net while preparing this recipe.

Mixing the Dry IngredientsMixing the Dry Ingredients

For the first part of this recipe, we will be preparing the dry portion of our ingredients. You will want to get out a regular mixing bowl that is only used for soap making, candle making, etc. Then, you can take out your scale and weigh out the 205 grams of Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate we will need. Add it to your mixing bowl. Next, we will measure out and add to the same bowl 230 grams of Baking Soda, 112 grams of Cream of Tartar, and 36 grams of Corn Starch. The powders from these can really kick up in the air, so make sure that you are wearing a mask. Mix each of these ingredients together until the dry mixture is smooth. We find it easier to break up all of the clumps in the mixture when we use our hands instead of using a spoon or a spatula.

Making the Liquid PortionMaking the Liquid Portion

Next, take out a second mixing bowl. Get the scale out once again and weigh out all of the liquid ingredients for this recipe. First, weigh out 100 grams of the vegetable glycerin. Then, measure out and add to the same bowl 12 grams of jojoba oil, 5 grams of vitamin E oil, and 7 grams of the Sangria Punch Fragrance Oil. Blend them all together seamlessly. The vegetable glycerin, jojoba oil, and vitamin E oil all provide benefits for the skin, which make them perfect for this and other bubble bar recipes. Vegetable glycerin gives you moisturized and resilient skin, and jojoba oil and vitamin E oil will reduce skin irritation, moisturize, as well as minimize the appearance of scars and wrinkles.

Combining the Liquid Ingredients and the Dry IngredientsCombining the Liquid Ingredients and the Dry Ingredients

Then, pour your wet ingredients into the mixing bowl that contains the dry ingredients. Our next step is to create the fun pink color for these sangria bubble bars. You are going to add three drops of the tomato red FUN Soap Colorant. This small amount will give you the light pink color that we are looking for and which you can see in the recipe picture. Add more of the colorant if you prefer a more deeper pink shade or red shade for your bubble scoops. Using your hands, mix all of the ingredients together. Once mixed thoroughly, it will morph into the consistency of dough.

Rolling the DoughRolling the Dough

Once your wet and dry ingredients have been mixed together to form the dough. We used our hands to squeeze the dough and form it into a big ball. Keep on repeating the process of squeezing and rolling until you are sure the pink color is visible everywhere and there are no uncolored white parts left. Doing this will make the next step easier, when we pack the dough and create the actual bubble bar scoops.

Packing and Scooping the Dough Onto the MatPacking and Scooping the Dough Onto the Mat

Now, we get to do the fun part of the recipe! Make sure to have your flexible silicone mat ready for this step. The dough should already be in your mixing bowl. Using your hands, start by pressing down and packing the bubble bar dough tightly in the mixing bowl. This is going to make it easier when using the ice cream scoop. Now that the dough is ready to be scooped, use your stainless steel ice cream scoop to form the bubble bars. As you scoop, place each of them on your flexible silicone mat. This is the easiest place for them to have the time they need to set up without getting in the way of other projects.

Finishing the Sangria Scoopable Bubble BarsFinishing the Sangria Scoopable Bubble Bars

To finish off the bubble bar scoops, take out the diamond dust mica pigment. Sprinkle it all over your bubble bars to decorate them a little bit. We love working both with the 24K gold mica pigment and the diamond dust mica pigment because when a little glitter is added, projects come to life! Finally, set the silicone mat aside on a countertop to allow your sangria sparkle bubble bars to set up. If completely undisturbed, they should harden enough and be fully set up after 24-48 hours.
