So, read on to find some fun and creative ways to use whipped soap.
Whipped Soap Recipes: Creating Body Frostings
Let’s start by talking about creating body frostings. Body frostings are simple to create and can be used just like soap. However, they have the addition of powdered sugar. We are often asked why the powdered sugar is added to the body frosting. Well, the powdered sugar will help to thicken the base just slightly so that it has more of a frosting consistency. Read on to find out the different ways that we have created body frostings.

Whipped Soap Recipes: Shaving Cream Recipes
Another wonderful way to use the whipped soap base is in shaving cream recipes. To create these type of recipes, you simply add a couple of ingredients to the base. First, you want to add a clay.

Whipped Soap Recipes: Soap Frosting Recipes
Now, I know what you are thinking, didn’t we already talk about body frosting? Is this a typo? The answer is no. With the whipped soap base you can create a soap frosting that can be used to top your melt and pour soap or, in one case below, to create a rolled soap. While all of the other whipped soap recipes that we have talked about can be simply placed in jars, these are a little different. When the whipped soap is mixed with melt and pour soap, it can actually be used to top things like soap cupcakes. In addition, it will setup and harden while still maintaining a frosting look. When creating this type of recipe, we also add vegetable glycerin so that it still maintains some pliability.

Once we had the soap frosting in place, we rolled the soap just like you would roll a pumpkin roll. We topped the soap with the whipped soap frosting, using rubbing alcohol to help hold everything in place. Finally, we drizzled the soap with white mp soap.
