How to Make Soap White


This entry was posted in cold process soap colorant, free soap recipes, handcrafted soap, handmade soap, make your own soap, Natures Garden, soap colorants, soap making supplies, soap supplies and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

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.

 

How to Make Soap White Colorant OptionsHow to Make Soap White Colorant Options

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.

Swirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Preparations

Before we begin you should make sure that your work station is clean and ready for you to work. Further, you should wash and dry all the equipment that you are going to be working with. Doing this will help to ensure that your finished product is clean, as well. Nothing is worse than finishing a project and finding a speck right on the surface. Additionally, you may find it easier to gather all your ingredients before you begin creating your soap. Although you can simply grab everything as you go, it can be helpful to have everything in your work space before starting. This will make are that you aren’t caught off guard and that you will have everything that you need as you need it.

Swirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Beginning with the Soap ColorsSwirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Beginning with the Soap Colors

First of all, you are going to focus on preparing the three color portions that you will need in a future step.Later on, you will add these colored pastes to separated portions of your melted soap base. Preparing the colors first will make it easier to work with the soap and add these colors later on. This way you will have more time to pour your soap batter. Also, it will be less likely for you to have your soap set up before it gets in the mold. So, take your three disposable cups and assign each one to a different color. You will need to make sure you have a cup for the pink, white, and brown portions of your soap.

Swirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Preparing the Pink Colorant PortionSwirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Preparing the Pink Colorant Portion

Now, we are going to get the pink soap colorant portion ready for you to use in a later step. So, retrieve your scale and set it to measure in grams. Next, add 7 grams of the Rose Clay, 15 grams of the Vegetable Glycerin, and 10 drops of the Neon Pink Soap Colorant to one of your disposable cups. Then, stir this mixture into a paste and make sure that all the ingredients are incorporated. After, set this mixture aside until after you melt the soap base.

Swirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Preparing the Brown Colorant PortionSwirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Preparing the Brown Colorant Portion

Next, you will be getting the brown colorant ready for that portion of the soap. So, use the scale to fill your next disposable cup with 7 grams of Cocoa Powder and 16 grams of Vegetable Glycerin. You will stir this until it is a paste consistency and has incorporated all the ingredients. Then, you can set aside this colorant mixture for you to use in a later step.

Swirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Preparing the White Colorant PortionSwirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Preparing the White Colorant Portion

Next, you will prepare the last portion of the colorants. So, grab the cup that is meant to contain the white portion of your soap colorant. Then, you can add 5 grams of Kaolin Clay Powder and 10 grams of Vegetable Glycerin to this remaining disposable cup. You will need to stir this to incorporate all the ingredients and create the proper consistency. Then, you can set the white colorant aside until you need it later on.

Swirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Melting the Soap BaseSwirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Melting the Soap Base

Now, you are ready to prepare the actual soap portion of your recipe. So, you will cut up and weigh out 904 grams of the Natures Garden Cocoa Butter Soap Base. Also, make sure that you put this soap base into a microwave safe, glass bowl. After you cut up the soap, you can use your microwave to melt the cocoa butter soap base. You will want to melt the soap with 30 second bursts and be sure to stir in between the heating times. This will prevent you from accidentally over heating the soap base. You will need to continue the melting and stirring cycle until the soap is entirely liquid.

Swirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Adding the Fragrance OilSwirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Adding the Fragrance Oil

Next, you will be adding a very scrumptious fragrance oil into the melted soap. So, you will need to weigh out 45 grams of the Chocolate Covered Strawberries Fragrance Oils. Then, you should take your newly melted soap base. After, you can add the weighed fragrance oil to the soap. Also, add in 45 grams of the Vanilla White Color Stabilizer to the melted soap. This will prevent some of the discoloration that could be caused by the fragrance oil. Since the fragrance has a 6% vanillin content, it would be likely to create a dark brown color in the soap if left on its own. This is why we need to add in the vanilla white stabilizer, as it prevents discoloration and allows us to color the soap as we see fit. After you have added the soap scent and Vanilla White, you can stir these ingredients into the soap to incorporate everything into the mixture.

Swirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Separating the Scented Soap BaseSwirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Separating the Scented Soap Base

Then, you need to separate the melted soap base. You will incorporate one of the three soap colorants you prepared earlier to each of the three containers. So, take each of the three containers of color and set them up nearby. Then, to the first mixing bowl, weigh about 301 grams of the melted soap base. Next, add your pink clay soap colorant. Next, in the second bowl, add 301 grams of the melted soap base.  Again, add your colorant, this time the cocoa powder colorant. Finally, you should have about 301 grams of soap left in the bowl that you used to originally melt the soap. To this bowl, add the kaolin white clay. Make sure that you mix well to incorporate all the ingredients in each bowl. Afterwards, you will be ready to pour your soap colors into the silicone soap loaf mold!

Swirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Filling the Soap Mold

Now, it is time to fill your silicone soap mold with your colored soap portions. So, get your silicone loaf soap mold prepared in your work area. Know that you will have enough soap to fill two of the four loaf cavities in the soap mold. Also, you will need to grab two of your proportioned cups of colored soap, which two colors that you use initially is up to you. Then, use both your hands and pour these two different colors into the soap mold simultaneously. Add a bit with these two colors, then switch to the next color. You will pour these at the same time, as well. You will need to repeat this process of alternating these three colors and pouring two at a single time until you use up each of your three soap portions.

Next, you are ready to add the finishing touches to the soap in your silicone soap loaf mold. So, take your spray bottle of rubbing alcohol and spray the top of your soap loaves. This will make sure that any air bubbles that may be in the soaps are released before the soap sets up completely. As a general rule, you should always spray rubbing alcohol after pouring melt and pour soap. Afterwards, you will need to wait for your soap loaves to completely set up before doing anything else for this craft recipe. If you move the soap before the loaves set up completely, then you could possibly mess up the tops of the soap. This could lead to a wrinkled appearance on top or even accidentally spilling the soaps.

Swirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe Cutting the Finished Soap

After the soap completely sets up, you will be ready to remove your loaves of soap from the mold and slice the soaps into bars! Your soaps should be completely set up at this point, so pop the two soap loaves out of the silicone soap mold. Then, you can get these finished soap loaves ready to cut into individual bars of soap. So, use your mitre box and cutter to cleanly slice your bars into bars of soap that are the perfect size for use. Now, your soaps are finally finished!
