Cold Process Soap Making SuppliesCold Process Soap Making Supplies

We at Natures Garden would like to share with you the supplies and materials needed when making cold process soap! We know that the majority of our customers are familiar with the soap and candle making industries. However, we think that it is important to provide educational blogs, videos, and recipes for beginners and anyone looking to learn or expand their knowledge. There are many different classes and recipes on our website that help guide our customers when making homemade projects. One of the main topics that these center around is cold process soap. We will dive into the process, some of our classes, and mention multiple recipes we have. Let’s get started!

Cold Process SoapCold Process Soap

In general, soap crafters consider cold process soap to be one of the most common methods for soap making. This method has been termed “cold process” because there is no outside heating source applied to initiate the process of saponification. Hot process soap uses different types of heating sources, such as the stove or a crock pot. On the other hand, in cold process soap, the lye mixture creates heat and saponifies the oils by itself. The lack of a heat source unfortunately means that this type of soap will take a lot longer to cure. The typical curing time for cold process soap is between 4 and 6 weeks. Although lengthy, this curing time is necessary to allow the soap to harden. The longer cure time will also help your soap to be more tolerable on the skin.

After creating your soap, you can decide whether or not you want to insulate it. A lot of the research we read suggests insulating, but it is mostly up to your personal preference. We have written a blog in the past about how you can insulate soap to promote gel phase. After pouring the soap into your mold, surround it with layers of towels or blankets. The layers will absorb the heat while your soap undergoes saponification. This process is the gel phase, where the fats in your soap become hardened. The key to this process is evenly heating the soap in order to prevent a partial gel from occurring. If you insulate, it will accelerate saponification and the finished look will look slightly shiny. By deciding to put your soap in the fridge instead, saponification will slow down and the finish will look more matte.

Ingredients in Cold Process Soap: LYEIngredients in Cold Process Soap: Lye

Now that we have discussed the process of insulation, we should mention ingredients that are important for cp soap. In order to get your bars of soap to turn out correctly, measuring the ingredients to a tee is very important. Starting with the main ingredient, sodium hydroxide, which is also known as lye. This is completely necessary to make cold process soap. Lye is an emulsifier, which allows oils and butters to mix with water and make soap. Without it, these ingredients would not mix which would prevent any soap being made. By adding too much lye, it can result in your soap having a higher PH level, which may end up causing burns and irritation to the skin. On the other hand, if the lye is not balanced properly with the oils, it can interfere with the reaction, which can lead to greasy and oily bars of soap.

Ingredients in Cold Process Soap: OILSIngredients in Cold Process Soap: Oils

Palm oil, coconut oil, and olive oil pomace are all commonly used when making cold process soap. They contribute different qualities to your soap depending on their main properties. We have a chart on our website that breaks down the soaping oil properties for each type of oil. The properties we looked at are hardness, cleansing, conditioning level, bubbly lather, creamy lather, and sap value. Also included in the chart is some miscellaneous information to provide you with more knowledge about each of the oils. Palm oil is high in its hardness, conditioning, and creamy lathering elements. Coconut oil contributes to hardness, cleansing quality, and bubbly lather. Olive oil pomace is very high in conditioning, which is definitely an ideal quality for soap. The combination of these three oils would create a soap that cleanses thoroughly, lathers nicely, and is gentle on the skin all at the same time.

Ingredients in Cold Process Soap: COLORANTSIngredients in Cold Process Soap: Colorants

Some other ingredients that are commonly added to cold process soap are FUN soap colorants, soap dyes, and mica pigments. We have many different color options to choose from in colorants, dyes, and beautiful diamond dust and 24K gold micas. When it comes to adding colorants or pigments, some may cause color morphing, which could affect the appearance aspect of your soap. To save yourself the frustration of ruining a batch of soap that discolors to something you do not like, you can test this out before hand. This can be done by taking a small amount of soap dye or mica pigment and adding it to a little of the lye mixture. You will be able to see your results quickly.

Cold Process Soap TestingCold Process Soap Testing

We have taken the time to test each of our fragrance oils in cold process soap. This way, our customers are able to see the results before they decide to use them. When we tested them, we were specifically looking for acceleration, discoloration, ricing, separation, and scent retention. We have the results for each of them on the website in video form as well as a chart. These videos can be found when you search by the individual fragrance oils. Over 300 of them did not cause any discoloration. A few included in these are the Aromatherapy Energizing, Blueberry, Egyptian Musk, and Magnolia. Some of the ones that caused discoloration include Absinthe, Blue Cotton Candy, Cream Soda, and Pomegranate Cider. If you would like to see the rest of the criteria we tested like ricing and separation for each fragrance, use our soap testing results chart to find out!

Cold Process Soap Class 101Cold Process Soap Class 101

We have a couple of classes on the website that are good for beginner soap makers. The first one is our Cold Process Soap Class 101. It is easy to follow along with this class, but you will need to get your ingredients ahead of time. As we mentioned before, the most important one you need to create cold process soap is lye. You will also need distilled water, vinegar, some soaping oils, a fragrance oil that is body safe, and colorant(s) that are body safe. There is plenty of equipment you will need to safely make cold process soap, a list of which can be found in our Soaping 101 Class.

Doing your research before making cold process soap for the first time is extremely important. For example, if you have never worked with lye before, you will need to learn about it before hand. Your top priority when making soap should be practicing proper safety because accidents may happen if precautions are not taken. Another thing when it comes to lye is that it cannot be stored in or combined with any containers or other products that are made out of aluminum or tin. The reason for this is that the combination will cause a violent reaction. For these reasons, we implore you to use the safety gear that is provided by Natures Garden including safety goggles, a safety mask, and gloves. One last thing to remember is that the materials and equipment used when making soap should never be used for food again. By keeping these steps in mind and being cautious, making soap can be both easy and fun!

How to use Castor Oil in Soap

There are a lot of different oils available that you can use to add to your soap recipe. Soap contains fatty acids which these oils make up. One oil that stands out is Castor Oil, and I’m going to explain how to use castor oil in soap. Castor Oil is commonly used in cold process soaps to give it a very lathery feel, and is all around a wonderful product to use. You aren’t only limited to soaps though, castor oil can be used in different cosmetic skin oils, bath products, lip products, and many other different products. Explained below are a lot of different benefits you can get out of castor oil, and some of our recipes that we’ve created using it.

 

Castor Oil Usage Rates in Cold Processed SoapCastor Oil Usage Rates in Cold Process Soap

The basic foundation of making any type of soap is mixing fatty acids, lye, and water. For cold process soaps, or any soap in general, NaOH is the preferred lye compound to use. Castor oil is used in the category of fatty acids, as it is made up of three different acids. The fatty acids are identified below with their percentage amount used in the castor oil composition. It is recommended that 5%-8% of castor oil is used in any cold process or hot process soap recipe. Using anywhere above 10% is known to make your soap really stick and unappealing to use.  Also, to saponify one gram of Castor Oil, you need to add .128-.180mg of NaOH for cold processed soap. Castor oil is also known to have a shelf life of one year after opening.

Ricinoleic – 90%
Oleic – 4%
Linoleic – 4%

Properties of Castor Oil

There are many unique properties associated with castor oil that make it a great oil choice to use in cold process soap. Castor Oil is a humectant, which means that it attracts moisture to your skin. Due to this property, it’s great to use in cold process soap, because it’ll allow you to retain moisture when using.  You can also add castor oil to lip balms and massage oils to create a silky glide. The silky glide will make applying the product way easier. On top of its moisturizing qualities, this oil is also known to provide hair growth stimulation as well. Just add the oil to any of our soap or conditioner recipes to see it’s full effects. Adding this oil to cold process soap will also make it more conditioning, thus allowing your hands to be softer after use.

 

Castor Oil for Soap and CosmeticsBenefits of Using Castor Oil

There are many benefits to using castor oil in any of our recipes. This oil is a thicker oil, so any product that it’s used in will be an excellent moisturizer. There are also a lot of natural fatty acids that make up this oil. This makes the oil great for use with the skin.  Castor oil will not only moisturize you, but will nourish your skin as well. When used in lotions and body butters, this oil is also known to make your skin appear more youthful. This oil can also be used in cosmetics, like for example in mascara. When used in mascara, castor oil is believed to be contributed to growing darker, more full eyebrows over time. When applied directly to the skin, this oil is also known to be antibacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory.

Weigh out 517 grams of distilled water.  Slowly add 199 grams of lye.  Stir until the lye is dissolved.  Allow your lye to cool to room temperature.  While you are waiting for your lye to cool, weigh out and melt your oils.

Mistletoe CP Soap Recipe Prepare Your Oils

You will need 136 grams apricot oil, 109 grams coconut oil 76, 299 grams grapeseed oil, 476 grams mango butter, 109 castor oil, and 231 grams fractionated coconut oil.  Allow the oils to cool to room temperature.  While you are waiting for the temperatures to come down prepare your colorants.

You will need three small bowls.  To one bowl add 10 grams Lime Green FUN Soap Colorant.  Add 12 grams Kelly Green FUN Soap Colorant.  In the third bowl add 6 drops of the red Soap Colorant.  Also, get your square loaf mold out and ready.

 

Mistletoe CP Soap Recipe Mixing Oils and LyeMistletoe CP Soap Recipe Pouring the Soap

Once both your oils and lye solution get down to room temperature, add your oils to your lye water.  Stick blend to emulsify.  Then, add 84 grams of Mistletoe and Ivy Fragrance Oil.  Again, stick blend your batter to incorporate the Mistletoe and Ivy Fragrance Oil.

 

Mistletoe CP Soap Recipe Separating the BatterNext, divide your soap batter.  Pour 200 grams of your soap batter into each of the bowls containing green soap colorant.  Use the stick blender to mix the color into the soap.  For the red portion, you will only need about 15 grams of soap batter.  You will also need to mix the color in by hand.  Once colored, place the batter into a decorating bottle.

 

 

Mistletoe CP Soap Recipe Pouring the Green Soap
The uncolored portion of the soap batter can be poured into your mold at a light trace.  Now, begin with the darker green soap batter.  Pour a line of dark down the center of your mold. You want to pour it down the longer length of the mold.  Then, pour the lighter green right on top of the darker green.  Now pour another layer of each color using the same method.

 

 

Mistletoe CP Soap Recipe Swirling the LeavesMistletoe CP Soap Recipe Swirling the Leaves and Adding Berries

The green portion of the soap is meant to resemble leaves.  You will see the two green colors you poured will rest on the top of the loaf.  You will use your wooden skewer to swirl the two colors.  Place your skewer in one corner of the mold.  Then, move the skewer in an “S” motion until you get to the other side of the mold.

 

 

Mistletoe CP Soap Recipe Adding BerriesFinally,  we will be using the red soap batter to place dots resembling berries.  Using the decorating bottle filled with the red batter add dots to the top of the soap.  You will want to place them either on top of the green soap, or close to them.  Also, keep in mind you will be slicing your loaf.  You may want to pay attention to where you place them.  This way you aren’t slicing right through the middle of a bundle of berries.

Once your soap has set up, after about 24 hours, remove the mistletoe soap from the mold.  Lastly, once it is firm enough, slice it.  Of course, you will want to let it cure before using it.

Always make sure to protect yourself first with your gloves, glasses, and mask! Then you can prepare your lye water. Weigh 345 grams of distilled water, and 125 grams of lye. Carefully pour your lye into your water. Never pour water into lye! This can cause an explosion! Thoroughly mix your lye water and then set it aside to cool down.

Next, you can get your butters and oils ready. Weigh out 272 grams of Shea Butter, 272 grams of Olive Oil, 181 grams of Palm Oil, and 181 grams of Coconut Oil 76. Melt these down completely and then set them aside to cool as well.

While you are waiting for both of these to cool, you can get your colors ready. In separate bowls, add 5 grams of Black Oxide colorant, and 7 grams of Neon Orange. Then in another bowl, measure out 15 grams of Titanium Dioxide, mixing this thoroughly with just a little bit of your oils from your base bowl until you have achieved a paste-like consistency.

 

animalistic instinct soap

 

Make sure to keep checking your oils and lye water temperatures using your thermometer, until they have reached about 72 degrees Fahrenheit (room temperature) and are within ten degrees of each other. Then carefully pour your lye water into your butters and oils, mixing it together very thoroughly with a stick blender until you have come to a light trace.

When your mixture is at a light trace, pour 400 grams into the bowl with black colorant, 500 into the orange, and 500 in a separate bowl, adding your titanium paste to this last bowl. Then thoroughly mix each color. Make sure to add 20 grams of your Animalistic Instinct fragrance to your black bowl, and 25 grams to the orange and white. Again, make sure to mix them thoroughly!

Once your colors are completely mixed, you can begin to pour them into your mold. We started with our orange, carefully pouring just a little bit in a straight line all the way across the mold.

Then we alternated all three colors until the mold was almost full, leaving just a little bit of each color in our bowls.
