Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub RecipeChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe

Today we will be showing you how to make a chocolate bath butter scrub recipe.  This recipe was inspired by a cookies and cream parfait recipe that we found from Homemade Hooplah.  They looked so delicious, I just had to turn them into some sort of bath and body product.  This way, I could have chocolate indulgence with none of the calories.  So. I decided to make a chocolate bath butter scrub using Natures Garden’s Better Than Sex Cake Fragrance Oil.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe:  Ingredients Found at Natures Garden

Whipped Soap Base
Organic Cocoa Powder
Vegetable Glycerin
Vanilla White Color Stabilizer
Epsom Salt
Better Than Sex Cake Fragrance Oil
Black Oxide FUN Soap Colorant
Brown Oxide FUN Soap Colorant
Clear 8 oz PET Jars
70/400 White Straight Smooth Lids

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe:  A Closer Look at Some of the Ingredients We Will Be Using

Before we begin, we will take a closer look at some of the ingredients we will be using today.  Our chocolate soap recipe is a fluffy whipped soap scented with our Better Than Sex Cake Fragrance Oil. Below, is an in depth look at the key ingredients in this soap recipe.

 

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe: Better Than Sex Cake Fragrance OilChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Better Than Sex Cake Fragrance Oil

The first ingredient we will talk about is the scent.  Better Than Sex Cake fragrance oil by Natures Garden smells like German chocolate cake that is blended with semi-sweet chocolate chips and laced with crunchy toffee bits to create this decadent treat.  Vanilla creme and butterscotch syrup create a luscious undertone, while hints of almond and coconut complete the yummy blend.  An NG Original Fragrance!

Top Notes:  almond, coconut
Mid Notes:  toffee, chocolate
Base Notes:  butterscotch, vanilla, chocolate cake

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Whipped Soap BaseChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Whipped Soap Base

In this recipe, the whipped soap base is used to create the creamy layers of our bath butter.  This soap base can be used to create your own bath frosting, shaving soap, foaming body butter, and foaming sugar scrubs.  Simply whip our base with a mixer, add scent and colorant, and spoon into jars.  Our rich, luxurious-feeling whipped soap base leaves your skin feeling soft and moisturized.  This whipped soap base is bright white in color and does not substantially deflate after packaging.

When using fragrances in the whipped soap base, we suggest using 1-5% of a body safe fragrance oil in your finished product.  Additional carrier oils can be added to this base, but we do not suggest adding any more than 5%.  When making foaming sugar scrub, please note that some of your sugar will dissolve in the base.  Fragrance oils can and may discolor your finished product.  When using fragrance oils with a vanillin content higher than 1%, you may want to consider using vanilla white stabilizer to reduce discoloration.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Organic Cocoa PowderChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Organic Cocoa Powder

Now, let’s talk about the natural colorant we used.  Cocoa powder is a wonderful brown colorant for soap, lotion, and other cosmetics.  In fact, I personally use it in my natural makeup recipes.  Organic cocoa powder is a fabulous addition to your cosmetics and soap recipes.  Cacao beans are rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C, E and pantothenic acid.  They are also rich in the following minerals:  magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc, copper, manganese and potassium.  Cocao beans contain caffeine, which is actually beneficial to the skin.  How does chocolate lip balm sound to you?  Chocolate facial masks?  Yummy!

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Vegetable GlycerinChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Vegetable Glycerin

We used the vegetable glycerin in the recipe to help mix our cocoa powder into our soap base without clumping.  We often use it when using natural powdered colorants to recipes for this reason.  However, vegetable glycerin is also used in other types of recipes.  For example, it can be added to melt and pour soap.  When added to melt and pour soap, it will give the soap some flexibility.

Vegetable glycerin is a clear, odorless, sweet-tasting liquid with a thick syrup-like consistency.  It is used in formulations of cosmetics, soaps, shampoo, herbal remedies, toothpaste, lotions, and other household items.  Vegetable glycerin is soluble in both alcohol and water; however insoluble in oil.  Vegetable glycerin is a humectant, which draws moisture to the skin.  It is added to lotions during the water phase in improve the emollience of the product.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: FUN Soap ColorantsChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: FUN Soap Colorants

This soap recipe uses Natures Garden’s FUN Soap Colorants.  In fact, we use two of them.  We use both the brown oxide and the black oxide to color our Epsom salt.  These soap colorants are easy to use and stay true to color even when added to a product.  These vibrant soap colors are my personal favorite to work with when making soap!

So, what exactly are the FUN Soap Colorants?  They are pigments which are dispersed in vegetable glycerin. They come in oxides, aquamarines, and even some neon colors, just to name a few.  No chemical preservatives added.  All of our FUN Soap Colorants are considered to be VEGAN. Using liquid soap pigments which have already been dispersed in vegetable glycerin helps to prevent pigments from clumping in your soap.  All of these soap colorants work well in melt and pour soap, and cold process soap.  They are non-bleeding, perform well in high ph environments, and do not morph during the saponifcation process.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Epsom SaltChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Epsom Salt

Epsom salt can be used in many different products and industries. It can be used for hair care, medicinal purposes, skin care, cosmetics, bath and body products, gardening and cleaning products. It is used as a bath salt to help relieve stress and help to soothe sore muscles.

Many skin care benefits that are associated with the usage of Epsom salt. It is great for exfoliating the skin, smoothing out rough patches, and for preventing wrinkles. It also treats sun burn and helps to get rid of acne. Also, by rubbing it on your skin after taking a shower, it helps to make your skin smooth and silky and also takes away dead skin cells.

Feet ailments can be treated using Epsom salt as well. Soaking your feet in hot water mixed with Epsom salt helps to take away foot odor and foot fungus. It can also help to relieve the problems caused by athlete’s foot and also treats gout.

Epsom salt has many anti-inflammatory properties. Athletes can use it in ice baths after work outs to help with inflammation problems.Facial pores can be treated with Epsom salt as well. It has many exfoliating properties which work hard to give the pores a nice deep clean.

For hair care, adding Epsom salt to conditioners gives the hair extra volume. It also helps to remove excess oils from the hair. You can also make a mixture of water, Epsom salt and lemon juice that when used on the hair before showering, it will help to make hairspray easier to remove.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Vanilla White Color StabilizerChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Vanilla White Color Stabilizer

We used Vanilla White Color Stabilizer in this recipe to prevent our white layer from turning brown.  Vanilla White basically helps to lessen any discoloration that is cause by a vanilla content.  Since the Better Than Sex Cake Fragrance Oil has a vanillin content of 6%, it would certainly discolor our white whipped soap base.

Natures Garden’s Vanilla White Color Stabilizer is a patent pending fragrance technology designed to be added to aqueous bases that have color stability problems resulting from vanillin and other aromatic ingredients which tend to oxidize and cause browning.  For the first time, water based formulas can be stabilized by including a small amount of Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  Phthalate-Free.

So, what products can Vanilla White be used in?  Vanilla White Color Stabilizer can be used such products as liquid soap bases, bar soap bases, glycerin soap bases, cold process soap, hot process soap, shampoos, conditioners, fabric softeners, detergents, air fresheners, and lotions; essentially any product that is not anhydrous.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe: Total Recipe Weights

30 grams Better Than Sex Cake Fragrance Oil
6 grams Organic Cocoa Powder
34 grams Vegetable Glycerin
30 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer
170 grams Epsom Salt
4 grams Black Oxide FUN Soap Colorant

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe: Prepare the Chocolate Whipped SoapChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe: Prepare the Chocolate Whipped Soap

Will begin by preparing the brown chocolate portion of our bath butter.  This portion will be colored using Natures Garden’s organic cocoa powder.  In addition, we will scent the whipped soap with Better Than Sex Cake Fragrance Oil.  So, in a deep mixing bowl, add 353 grams of the whipped soap base.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe: Prepare the Chocolate Whipped SoapNow, we will prepare our natural brown colorant.  So, in a small bowl, weigh out 6 grams of the organic cocoa powder.  Then, to the same bowl, add 34 grams of vegetable glycerin.  Mix to completely blend the two ingredients.  By mixing our cocoa powder with vegetable glycerin before adding it to the whipped soap base, it will prevent it from clumping.

Next, add the brown colorant you prepared to the whipped soap base.  Then, you will need your hand mixer.  Use your hand mixer to mix the whipped soap base to a frosting-like consistency.

 

 

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe: Prepare the Chocolate Whipped SoapFinally, add your Better Than Sex Cake Fragrance Oil.  To the bowl containing the whipped soap, add 17 grams of Natures Garden’s Better Than Sex Cake Fragrance Oil.  Then, once again, use your hand mixer to create a frosting like consistency with the whipped soap.  Set this bowl aside while we prepare the other bath butter layers.

Now, let’s prepare the white whipped soap base.  In a deep mixing bowl, add 276 grams whipped soap base.  Weigh out and add 13 grams Better than Sex Cake Fragrance Oil and 13 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.

Use your hand mixer to blend the ingredients together.  Keep mixing until you reach that fluffy frosting consistency.  Set this bowl aside as well, we will come back to it too.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe: Prepare the Epsom SaltChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe: Prepare the Epsom Salt

Next, we will prepare the Epsom salt.  The Epsom salt will be the center layer in your bath butter.  It will be colored a black brown color.  It is meant to mimic the Oreo cookies in the dessert that inspired this creation.  In a clean bowl, weigh out 170 grams of Epsom salt.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe: Prepare the Epsom Salt

 

Now we will begin coloring the Epsom salt.  So, you will need both Natures Garden’s brown oxide and black oxide.  Then, add 4 grams of the black oxide FUN Soap Colorant and 2 grams of the brown oxide FUN Soap Colorant.

 

 

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe: Prepare the Epsom SaltFinally, you will want to wear a pair of gloves.  Then, using your hands, mix the colorants into the Epsom salt.  You want to make sure that the salt is completely colored and you can see no white.  Now, you can set the bowl aside for a moment.

 

 

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe: Packaging the Bath ButterChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe: Packaging the Bath Butter

Finally, we will begin packaging the bath butter.  We will be adding a couple of chocolate layers, a couple white layers, and layer of Epsom salt.  So, you will need to have all three bowls in front of you.  You will also want a spoon for each bowl.  In addition, you will need four of the 8 ounce clear jars.  First, we will begin with our chocolate layer.  Add a couple spoonfuls of the chocolate whipped soap to each of your 8 ounce clear jars.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe: Packaging the Bath Butter
Now, add a layer of the white whipped soap to each jar.  This layer should be about half as thick as the previous chocolate layer.  You want to add it directly on top of the chocolate layer.  However, you want to be careful not to get any of the base on the sides of the jar.  If you do, you will be able to see it in the next layer.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe: Packaging the Bath Butter

Our next layer will be the Epsom salt layer.  This layer will contain about 40 grams per jar.  When you initially add this layer it will look like it is too much.  However, once you add the remaining layers on top, it will go down a bit.  So, add about 40 grams of salt to each jar.

 

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe: Packaging the Bath Butter
Now, simply finish layering your whipped soap.  On top of the Epsom salt, add another layer of white.  Then, a layer of chocolate.  Finally, a dollop of white on top.  Ultimately, you can layer your whipped soap in whatever manner your would like.

Lastly, sprinkle each jar with a dash of Epsom salt.  Then, place a white lid on each jar.  You can use your Chocolate Bath Butter right away!  Let us know what you think of this recipe, or any of our other fragrance fun recipe in our recipe box.  Follow us on Facebook or find us on Instagram and Twitter @ngscents.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Raspberry EmbedsChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Raspberry Embeds

Now, let’s begin preparing our melt and pour soap.  First, you will need to prepare your raspberry embeds.  These embeds will be used to top our chocolate raspberry drizzle rolled mp soap. Once you have prepared them, set them aside, we will use them at the very end of this recipe.  However, since they need time to setup, we will prepare them first.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Total Recipe Amounts for Raspberries

150 grams Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap
7 grams Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Fragrance Oil
7 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer
2 drops Ultramarine Violet FUN Soap Colorant

Now, begin by weighing out your Natures Garden Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap.  In a small mixing bowl, weigh out 150 grams of the clear mp soap base.  Melt the soap in 30 second intervals until the soap is in a fluid state.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Pouring Your Soap Into the MoldChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Pouring Your Soap Into the Mold

Once you have colored and scented your soap, you will be pouring your soap into the mold.  For this soap recipe, we used a mold from flexiblemolds.com.  It is their Raspberries/Blackberries Soap & Candle Mold.  So, pour your melted soap into the cavities of this mold.  Then, spray the soap with rubbing alcohol to release any air bubbles.  Lastly, allow them to setup before removing them from the molds.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Brown SoapChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Brown Soap

In this next step, you will prepare your brown soap.  This soap will later be coated with whipped soap base and rolled, in the same manner, you would roll a jelly roll or cake roll.  You will need a pan lined with either a silicone baking mat, parchment paper, or wax paper.  Lining your pan prior to pouring the soap will make it much easier to remove from the pan once it sets up.  Since we are using fragrance oil, you will want to use a pan that is specifically for soap making.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Total Recipe Amounts for the Brown Soap

800 grams Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap
40 grams Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Fragrance Oil
40 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer
5 grams Organic Cocoa Powder
59 grams Vegetable Glycerin

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Brown Melt and Pour SoapChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Brown Melt and Pour Soap

Your first step is to prepare your brown melt and pour soap.  We will once again be using Natures Garden’s Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap.  So, weigh out 800 grams of the clear mp soap base.  You want to melt the soap for 30 seconds at a time until it is melted.  You want to be careful not to overheat the soap base.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Brown Soap ColorantChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Brown Soap Colorant

Now, you will want to prepare your brown soap colorant.  This can be done while you are waiting for your soap to melt.  You will need a very small bowl, vegetable glycerin and Natures Garden’s organic cocoa powder.  In your bowl, weigh out 5 grams of cocoa powder.  Then, add 19 grams of vegetable glycerin.  Mix until you no longer see any clumps of powder.  By dispersing the cocoa powder in vegetable glycerin, you will be able to easily and smoothly mix it into your soap base.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Adding Your Fragrance Oil and ColorantChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Adding Your Fragrance Oil and Colorant

Next, you will need be adding your fragrance oil and colorant.  We will also be adding some vegetable glycerin.  Adding vegetable glycerin will give the soap flexibility so it can be rolled in a later step.  So, when your clear soap is in a liquid state, add 40 grams of vegetable glycerin, the brown cocoa powder colorant you prepared, 40 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer, and 40 grams of Natures Garden Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Fragrance Oil.  When you have the ingredients added, mix thoroughly to ensure everything is completely blended.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Pouring Your Brown SoapChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Pouring Your Brown Soap

Once everything is mixed together, you are ready to begin pouring your brown soap.  The brown soap will be poured into the wax paper lined pan you prepared.  So, pour your melted brown soap slowly into your pan.  Once you have poured the soap, spray it with rubbing alcohol to release any air bubbles.  Then, let the soap setup and remove it from the pan. Set it aside for the moment, you will come back to it in a later step.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Soap FrostingChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Soap Frosting

Now, you will prepare your soap frosting.  Once it is prepared, we will spread it on our brown soap before rolling it up.  In addition, a small amount of the soap base will be placed across the top of the soap loaf to hold the raspberries in place.  The soap frosting will consist of both mp soap and whipped soap base.  By adding melt and pour soap to the whipped soap, it will allow the whipped soap to harden while maintaining a whipped frosting look.  If you added strictly whipped soap base, the whipped soap would remain soft and your soap roll would not stay together.  You will need to move quickly through the next few steps.  The whipped soap, once mixed with the melt an pour soap, will setup pretty fast.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Total Recipe Amounts for the Whipped Soap

400 grams Whipped Soap Base
400 grams Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base
40 grams  Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Fragrance Oil
40 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer
3 drops Neon Pink FUN Soap Colorant
2 drops Ultramarine Violet FUN Soap Colorant
6 drops Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant
40 grams Vegetable Glycerin

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Whipped Soap BaseChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Whipped Soap Base

First, you will prepare your whipped soap base.  The whipped soap base is what gives the pink filling the fluffy frosting-like consistency.  So, you will want to prepare your whipped soap in a very deep mixing bowl.  Once you have your bowl out, prepare your hand mixer.  Then, in your deep mixing bowl, weigh out 400 grams of NG’s Whipped Soap Base.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Adding Fragrance Oil and Pink ColorantChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Adding Fragrance Oil and Pink Colorant

Now, before you add your melt and pour soap, you will be adding fragrance oil and pink colorant.  You will also be adding vegetable glycerin.  So, to the bowl with your whipped soap base add 40 grams Vegetable Glycerin, 40 grams Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Fragrance Oil, 40 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer, 3 drops Neon Pink FUN Soap Colorant, 2 drops Ultramarine Violet FUN Soap Colorant, and 6 drops Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant.  Finally, use your hand mixer to blend all of the ingredients.  You will want to continue to mix until you have a fluffing frosting-like consistency.  Set this bowl aside, you will come back to it in just a minute.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your MP Soap BaseChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Prepare Your MP Soap Base

Next, we will be preparing some diamond clear melt and pour soap base.  This soap base will be added to this whipped soap base.  So, weigh out and melt 400 grams if your clear melt and pour soap base in the microwave.  Remember to melt the soap in 30 second intervals.  Once it is in a liquid state we will begin putting our whipped soap base together.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Finishing Your Soap FrostingChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Finishing Your Soap Frosting

The final step in finishing soap frosting is putting everything together.  Remember earlier when I said you would need to move quickly?  This is where it starts.  Once you add your melt and pour soap base to the pink whipped soap, you will need to quickly move so your can create you soap jelly roll before it sets up.  So, at this time, go ahead and add you melted soap to the bowl containing your pink whipped soap.  Then, use a hand mixer to blend it to a whipped soap frosting.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Putting Everything TogetherChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Putting Everything Together

Now, we will begin putting everything together.  You will need everything in front of you.  I highly recommend placing your brown soap on a piece of wax paper or parchment paper.  You will also need the soap raspberries you prepared earlier and your soap frosting.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Adding Your Soap FrostingChocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Adding Your Soap Frosting

Your first step will be adding your soap frosting.  You want to spread your soap frosting across the entire surface of the brown soap.  Do this, in the same manner, you would if you were frosting a cake.  However, you do want to leave about 40 grams of whipped soap in your bowl, we will use this portion to top the loaf once it is rolled.

Finally, you will be rolling your soap loaf.  Place your soap in front of you vertically.  Then, begin rolling the soap like you would a jelly roll.  Once you have rolled your soap completely, remove any extra whipped soap you find along any edges.

Lastly, we will be adding a few finishing touches.  This will include both the whipped soap base and the raspberry embeds.  First, you will need the remaining whipped soap frosting.  If needed you should be able to heat it one time for about 15 seconds so it will be easier to work with.  However, you will only be able to do this one.  Next, spray the top of the rolled soap loaf with rubbing alcohol so that your whipped soap will adhere better.  Then, place the pink soap frosting across the top.

Finally, we will be adding your raspberry embeds.  Place the raspberry embeds directly on top of your whipped soap.  I used all but a few of mine but definitely would have had room for all of them had I placed my raspberries closer together.  Go ahead and add your raspberry embeds to your soap loaf.  Then, if need be, use a clean paper towel or cloth to wipe off any extra soap base on the brown soap before moving on.

Your very last finishing touch will be adding your white chocolate drizzle.  The drizzle will be created using Natures Garden’s Cocoa Butter Melt and Pour Soap.  The soap base will be scented but uncolored.  This is the final step and is done right before you begin slicing your soap.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled MP Soap Recipe: Total Recipe Amounts for the White Soap:

40 grams Cocoa Butter Melt and Pour Soap
2 grams Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Fragrance Oil
2 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer

So, in a small mixing bowl, you will be preparing your white soap.  Weigh out and melt 40 grams of your mp soap base.  Then, 2 grams Natures Garden’s Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Fragrance Oil and 2 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  Then, stir to incorporate the fragrance oil.  Lastly, use a spoon to drizzle your soap loaf.  Allow it to setup, then slice your soap.

I hope that you have enjoyed creating this project with us!  I thoroughly enjoyed creating it for you!  In fact, this is probably my absolute favorite soap I have ever created here at Natures Garden.  I was inspired by an actual food recipe I found on Pinterest.  I will most definitely be creating this raspberry chocolate Swiss roll this weekend.  You must check it out!  If you have already tried it let me know what you think on our Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook page.

How to Make Soap White

How to Make Soap WhiteHow to Make Soap White

Homemade soap making is the perfect way to show off your creativity. While appearance isn’t everything in a bar of soap, it certainly is important. Sometimes the discoloration of your soap bar just doesn’t match the aroma and there may seem like there is nothing you can do to stop it. Or, you may just be trying to get your soap to be pure white, as no discoloration doesn’t mean that you will get a pure white bar of soap. In fact, uncolored and unscented cold process soap is naturally an off white hue. But, there are a few additives that you could use in certain situations to attempt to achieve the perfect white color for your soap bars. All you need to do is learn how to make soap white and we at Natures Garden would like to help you at as much as we possibly can!

How to Make Soap White Soap Making Options

We have three simple options for our lovely soap-makers that desire a whiter bar of soap. While there is no way to prevent discoloration in all cases, there are some options that you have for your soapmaking. First, we have the Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. This is a product that will actually prevent discoloration from fragrance. However, this ingredient is really only good for preventing fragrances with a vanillin content from discoloring. So, this additive will not always work to completely banish discoloration and may not work at all on some fragrances. Next, we have two types of titanium dioxide. While these ingredients are designed to change the appearance of the natural color of soaps. However, these additives will not prevent any fragrance discoloration. This ingredient is simply for turning the off white bars into a pure white hue.

How to Make Soap White Vanilla White Color StabilizerHow to Make Soap White Vanilla White Color Stabilizer

One easy method that you can use to whiten your cold process soaps is to add in our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer! While this ingredient can’t completely whiten all kinds of discoloration, this product can strongly reduce certain types of discoloration. So, it is important to know exactly when to add this product. This ingredient will reduce the discoloration that is caused by vanillin. Also, this product will slow down this ingredient’s ability to oxidize, which would cause browning in the soap. If the fragrance oil contains vanillin or components that will oxidize, then adding this ingredient will absolutely be helpful!

How to Make Soap White Why Use Vanilla White Color Stabilizer

As a soap maker, it is important to know how to deal with discoloration. While many great aromas that don’t cause any discoloration, there are some fragrance oils with wonderful scents that just don’t perform exactly how you want. It can be heartbreaking to discover a gorgeous scent that just discolors too much. What is worse is when the discoloration doesn’t pair well with the aroma. This always happens with scents that have heavy vanilla notes. These fragrance oils often end up extremely dark, but smelling like a pure white vanilla dream! However, you can prevent it with Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. So, don’t give up on your favorite vanilla soap scents just yet.

How to Make Soap White Vanilla Fragrance OilsHow to Make Soap White Vanilla Fragrance Oils

While there are definitely some types of discoloration that Vanilla White Color Stabilizer can’t help with, this product is perfect for reducing discoloration from vanillin. This ingredient is what creates the vanilla aroma that we all know and love! This means that this color stabilizing agent is perfect for vanilla fragrances, and any fragrance that has a vanillin content. So, darker shades of soaps that are caused by vanilla fragrance oils can be tackled by this product. Although it is possible for a fragrance oil to have other discoloring agents, the Vanilla White Color Stabilizer is great for whitening discoloration due to vanillin. So, you should add this ingredient when the vanillin content is above 1% to prevent discoloration.

How to Make Soap White Oxidation Impact on ColorHow to Make Soap White Oxidation Impact on Color

Over time, certain ingredients in the fragrance oil may begin to oxidize. While this is just a natural reaction some ingredients, like vanillin, have with the air, this could lead to a change in the color of your homemade soaps. Oxidation has the potential to cause a darker color for your soap, so you could potentially have discoloration after the soap has been created. Although Vanilla White Color Stabilizer can’t completely prevent this reaction from occurring, it is perfect if you would like to slow down this natural process. Thus, you can delay this discoloration and, if you use your bars quick enough, may never even have to see it!

How to Make Soap White Impact on ScentHow to Make Soap White Impact on Scent

Since you are attempting to save this fragrance oil for your soap making, you don’t want anything impacting the scent. Luckily, vanilla white color stabilizer can reduce discoloration without negatively impacting the fragrance oil that you enjoy. Although the aroma of this product is strong out of the bottle, the scent is completely unnoticeable in the finished soaps. So, you won’t smell a thing in your soaps! This means you can have the appearance in your soap that you want without sacrificing the integrity of this fragrance oil’s scent.

How to Make Soap White Using the Whitener How to Make Soap White Using the Whitener

Now, you know exactly how Vanilla White Color Stabilizer will work in your soap! All you have left to do is to learn how you can incorporate the color stabilizer into your soap making. While it is not super difficult, you need to know what you are doing to make sure that the ingredient is actually incorporated. So, make sure to add this ingredient to aqueous bases as it is designed to stabilize water based formulas. This is because the vanilla white stabilizer can’t be added to the oils until the saponification process.

How to Make Soap White How We Use Vanilla White Color StabilizerHow to Make Soap White How We Use Vanilla White Color Stabilizer

If you’d like to see exactly how this whitener product works, then check out our amazing Peppermint Fluff Soap Recipe! This is a quality soap recipe that required the base of the soap bar to be pure white hue. Otherwise, the design on our soap wouldn’t look like a peppermint! So, the soap had to be red and pure white. However, this soap uses a fragrance with a vanillin content. In fact, the Peppermint Fluff Fragrance Oil includes a 6% vanillin content. So, we needed something to help with the inevitable discoloration. Otherwise, we would have ended up with a brown and red bar of soap that really wouldn’t look like a peppermint at all. Instead, we used this ingredient and created the soap you see to the left!

How to Make Soap White Titanium Dioxide Water SolubleHow to Make Soap White Titanium Dioxide Water Soluble

Also, you have another perfect option for making homemade white soaps. You can use Titanium Dioxide to create a whiter bar of cp soap. While this ingredient won’t reduce discoloration that is caused by some fragrance oils, it is perfect for whitening. If you have a bar with light or no discoloration, then you can add this powdered colorant to create a whiter bar. Instead of the typical off white soap color, the Titanium Dioxide will create a more pure white color in your bars. Thus, you can have decorative soaps with a pure white hue. Also, you will be able to still use your personal cold process soaping recipe.

How to Make Soap White Amount to AddHow to Make Soap White Amount to Add

First, it is very important for you to know how much titanium dioxide that you can add to your homemade soaps. While this whitening powder is perfect for soap making, you don’t want to add too much of this product to your soap. However, not adding enough of this product could leave you with a bar that isn’t as white as you would like your soaps to be. So, we would suggest for you to include no more than a single teaspoon per pound of soap colored. All you need to do is add the right amount of this whitening product to your soaps!

How to Make Soap White Using the Water Soluble Titanium DioxideHow to Make Soap White Using the Water Soluble Titanium Dioxide

Next, you need to learn how this ingredient needs to be used. Since this ingredient is water based, it needs to be added to the lye water solution. This means that you will have to add this white pigment to your whole soap bar. So, the water soluble version of Titanium Dioxide is perfect for coloring an entire bar of cold process soap. Then, you can combine your water and oils perfectly to create a whiter bar of soap. Although you can separate some of this white soap to color with soap dyes, the titanium dioxide won’t impact the color.

How to Make Soap White Titanium Dioxide Oil DispersibleHow to Make Soap White Titanium Dioxide Oil Dispersible

Alternatively, you can use a different type of Titanium Dioxide to create your soaps. This ingredient is perfect for whitening smaller portions of your cold process soap. This version of Titanium Dioxide will perform similarly to the water soluble version. Thus, both act as a whitening pigment for the uncolored portions of the soap. Again, this ingredient won’t fix any discoloration caused by fragrance oils. This is because this additive is designed to alter the color of natural soaps to a more pure white. The only difference between the Oil Dispersible Titanium Dioxide and the Water Soluble Titanium Dioxide is how it is incorporated into the soap.

How to Make Soap White Using the Oil Dispersible Titanium DioxideHow to Make Soap White Using the Oil Dispersible Titanium Dioxide

Now, all you need is to learn how to use this product in your soap making process! Since this ingredient is oil based, you need to add titanium dioxide to the oil portion of your soaps. So, you’ll need to take a bit of your cosmetic oils and mix your powdered pigment together. Then, you will need to mix up your soap batch. Afterwards, separate out the portion of soap that you’d like to be whitened. Then, mix together the separated portion and the titanium dioxide to create the perfect white color for your soap design.

How to Make Soap White How We Use Titanium Dioxide Oil DispersibleHow to Make Soap White How We Use Titanium Dioxide Oil Dispersible

Finally, take a peek at how we like to use titanium dioxide in our very own soap making recipes. The Sweet Orange Chili Pepper Cold Process Soap Recipe is one example where adding this ingredient is perfect for creating perfect designs. This soap recipe incorporates a perfect in-the-pot swirl with vibrant red, pure white, and gorgeous orange colors. Note that the white portion of this swirl is even whiter than the normal hue of cold process soap. Luckily, this fragrance oil causes no discoloration in homemade soap! This means that adding titanium dioxide is a perfect option for creating a pure white section in your soap.

Now that you have whiter bars of soap, let’s talk about soap making colorants! You could add some fun colorants to your soaps that include some Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. Now that you prevented the discoloration, you are able to add any colors that you would like! Also, you are going to need some fun colors to go along with your newly whitened bars of soap. If you would like to explore your soap coloring options, then check out our various Soap Colorants. These would be perfect to add to your newly whitened bars.
