Ingredient Spotlight: Whipped Soap Base
To get started, we need to get our ingredients together and ready to be used. The main ingredient this recipe requires us to use is a whipped soap base. Our whipped soap base at Natures Garden is made from glycerin, sorbitol, stearic acid, and Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate. SCI is a type of surfactant that is commonly added to skin care products because it leaves the skin feeling soft, hydrated, and moisturized. Our whipped soap base is a creamy, luscious product that can be very useful when making homemade projects in this industry. It is versatile and most often used to make body butters, shaving soap, bath frosting, and foaming sugar scrubs.
If you want to brighten up your whipped soap, adding soap coloring and/or Natures Garden body safe fragrance oils offer you that. There are some fragrance oils that may discolor your products, including whipped soap. Discoloration can usually be corrected by using vanilla white color stabilizer. Before choosing the fragrance oils you want to use, you will probably want to know whether or not your product will discolor, and by how much. We tested all of our fragrance oils in cold process soap and made a chart for the results, which you can check out.
Weighing Out the Whipped Soap Base
Now that you know more about how our whipped soap base works, we can get started on our project of the day. First, you will need to get out some mixing bowls and a scale to accurately measure your ingredients. We always choose to use a digital scale when making recipes because we believe that it is the most accurate at weighing out the ingredients. With which ever type of scale that you prefer to use, weigh out 454 grams of the whipped soap base. Set it aside for now while we prepare the other three ingredients we are going to need.
Weigh Out the Powdered Sugar
Next, take out another mixing bowl. You are going to need to weigh out 250 grams of your powdered sugar. Any brand of powdered sugar will be fine to use in our recipes. Once you have measured out this ingredient, you can set it aside for the time being just as with the whipped soap base. We are going to be returning to it in a later step.
Add in the Pomegranate Fragrance Oil
For the next step, you will need to take out a small bowl. Place the bowl on your scale and measure out 35 grams of the Natures Garden Pomegranate Fragrance Oil. Then, add it into your whipped soap base. The pomegranate fragrance oil is one of our single note fragrances and it smells of delicious fresh, fruity pomegranate slices. This is one of the best selling fragrance oils that we carry at our company. Some of our other best sellers are Black Raspberry and Vanilla, Fresh Brewed Coffee – WORLDS BEST, and NG Aqua di Gio Type. On our website we have a complete list of our best sellers that you can check out.
FUN Soap Colorant Collection at Natures Garden
Natures Garden carries a multitude of colorants for soap. We use these in the majority of our recipes to make them bright, colorful, and beautiful. There are 20 shades of these listed on our website. Some of the ones we have are Jailhouse Red, Ultramarine Blue, and Neon Yellow. They are all made using glycerine, vegetable glycerin, and different pigments. No chemical preservatives have been added to our colorants, and they are also completely vegan. They are non-bleeding and do not morph during the saponification process in soap. The FUN Soap Colorants page goes into detail with each of the colorants that we carry. Each section gives the ingredients of the colorants, what each of them are typically used in.
Adding the Colorants In
Now, it is time to add in the colorants! For this recipe, we need both the Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant and the Neon Pink FUN Soap Colorant. Give the bottles a shake before opening them up because sometimes the pigment can separate from the vegetable glycerin. Taking the bowl containing the whipped soap base, add 15 drops of the tomato red colorant. Stir your mixture. Then, add 2 drops of the neon pink colorant to the same bowl. Incorporate the colors thoroughly. The amount for the color suggestions we gave for this recipe were based on the color we wanted our product to be. We were looking for more of a medium pink color as opposed to a deep red for this. If you prefer your whipped soap to be a darker red or a light pink, however, simply manipulate the colors until it reaches the look that you want it to be.
Mixing All of It Together
At this time, you are going to need to get out your hand mixer. We just use a typical kitchen hand mixer when making recipes. Do not use a mixer that you need for cooking food. Make sure that you are only using a mixer that is specifically for cosmetic projects and will never again be used for cooking. Turn on your mixer and begin whipping the whipped soap base. Continue to mix the combination of the whipped soap base, pomegranate fragrance oil, and the FUN Soap Colorants until it reaches a point where it starts looking like whipped frosting.
Folding in the Powdered Sugar
After your mixture is combined completely, we can move on to our next step. You will need to grab the bowl that you have the powdered sugar in from step two. Pour and add the powdered sugar into the mixture. Using a rubber spatula, fully fold this dry powder portion into the wet whipped soap base.
Incorporating the Mixture
Keep folding in the powdered sugar until it is no longer visible. After you have done so, you will need to grab the hand mixer once again. We now need to repeat whipping the base as we did before, very thoroughly. In between mixing, use the spatula to clean the sides of the bowl as you feel it is necessary. Make sure all of your ingredients have been fully incorporated before you move on to the next step.
Get Your Mixture to a Frosting Consistency
Continue to mix everything with the hand mixer until it reaches a certain point. The texture is the most important part in this step. You can stop mixing your whipped soap once its appearance has reached a frosting like consistency. Allow your whipped soap mixture about five minutes, left alone, to fully set up.
Scoop the Whipped Soap into the Jars
After the whipped soap frosting has had enough time to set up, we have reached the final step! With your 4 oz. clear PET jars at the ready with their matching lids, we can finish our whipped soap off. Take out a mixing spoon and use it to scoop the foaming bath icing evenly into all seven of your jars. Then, finish your product off by screwing the white dome lids on each one of them. If you would like to use jars other than these clear PET ones, we also carry a 4 oz white double wall jar and a 4 oz black double wall jar.

Whipped Cupcake Soap Recipe
Another recipe of ours that uses our whipped soap base is the Whipped Cupcake Soap. This shows a different type of soap you can make with a whipped soap base. With this recipe, you can make up to four pounds of soap. The ingredients we used to make it include luscious cocoa butter, Daisy Type Fragrance Oil, whipped soap base, vegetable glycerin, and the Neon Pink FUN soap colorant. We made this soap using our square loaf mold, which gives it its shape. If you want to make your whipped cupcake soap even cuter, try adding some colorful sprinkles on top like you can see in our picture! This recipe is another super simple one to follow along with, and it shows what else you can do with the Natures Garden whipped soap base.
