While you are waiting for the lye solution and the wholesale cosmetic oils to both cool to room temperature, you can start to prepare the soap colorants. You will need two small bowls to hold your colorants. One of these bowls will be used to hold each of the two different colors used in this homemade soap recipe.

Tiger Stripe Soap: Prepare the Orange Soap Colorant

In one small bowl you will want to prepare the orange soap colorant. This small bowl will contain 5 grams of the Neon Oxide FUN Soap Colorant. So, you can prepare the orange colorant for your tiger soap.

In a second small bowl you will want to prepare the black colorant for your animal print soap. This bowl will contain 5 grams of the Black Oxide FUN Soap Colorant that you will use in a later step for this soap.

Tiger Stripe Soap: Emulsifying the Soap IngredientsTiger Stripe Soap: Emulsifying the Soap Ingredients

You are going to want to pour the lye solution into your mixing bowl of cosmetic oils. Then, you will need to use a stick blender to emulsify these lovely soap making ingredients together. Once your soap batter has just about reached the point of trace, you are ready to move on to the next step in the cp soap process.

Tiger Stripe Soap: Adding the Fragrance OilTiger Stripe Soap: Adding the Fragrance Oil

Now, you are ready to include the soap scent in your emulsified mixture. So, you will add 64 grams of the Jungle Love Fragrance Oil to your soap batter. After, be sure to use a stick blender to fully incorporate the scent. This will provide your soap with an aroma of tropical and citrus scents. This fragrance contains a combination of fresh squeezed oranges, pineapples, bananas, coconut, and fresh kiwi notes.

Tiger Stripe Soap: Separate Into Two PortionsTiger Stripe Soap: Separate Into Two Portions

Next, you will want to separate your soap batter into two equal portions. One of these portions will be used for each of the colors for this soap making recipe. So, you will need to grab another clean mixing bowl and add half of the soap to this bowl. After your homemade cp soap has been divided you are ready to prepare your two colors.

Now you are going to add the soap colorant to each of the two portions of soap. In one of the two bowls, you will need to add the neon orange soap colorant. You can use the stick blender to thoroughly mix everything together. Next, you can use the black soap colorant to add to the second portion of the soap batter. You will want to wipe off your stick blender and use it to fully incorporate the colorant.

Tiger Stripe Soap: Filling Your Squeeze BottlesTiger Stripe Soap: Filling Your Squeeze Bottles

You are going to use these two colored soap portions to fill up your squeeze bottles. First, you are going to use your black colored soap portion and pour your soap into the bottle. Second, you are going to use the orange colored soap portion to fill another squeeze bottle. Once both of your bottles are filled you can add the lids. Now you are ready to use the filled bottles of soap.

Tiger Stripe Soap: Creating the Tiger StripesTiger Stripe Soap: Creating the Tiger Stripes

Now you are going to use your small square mold to begin your soap making process. So, you are going to want to use the black colored soap to create lines in the mold. You will want to make sure that these lines look like tiger stripes. You will continue to make these lines all throughout your soap mold.

Tiger Stripe Soap: Fill in the Empty SpaceTiger Stripe Soap: Fill in the Empty Space

Layer this orange soap by layering it on the orange soap from the previous layer. You will want to continue to alternate your colors and create additional layers of the soap.

Tiger Stripe Soap: Swirling the SoapTiger Stripe Soap: Swirling the Soap

Once your homemade soap has reached the top of the soap mold, you are going to swirl the top of your soap. So, you will need to use a wooden skewer to swirl the top of your soap. Of course, you are going to want to keep your wooden skewer towards the top of the soap. If you swirl too low into the mold, then you may ruin the stripes of your tiger soap. You will want to create a soap pattern that is a similar design to the swirled soap we are creating in the picture.

Tiger Stripe Soap: Finish Your CP Soap Recipe

Finally, your homemade soap with lye is done and nearly ready for you to use! Now you will just need to wait about 24 to 48 hours before you can remove the soap from the wholesale soap mold. After removing your soap from the mold, you will want to wait until your soap is set up enough to cut into individual bars. You will be able to cut sixteen individual bars. Now, you will just need to wait for your cold process soap to finish going through the curing process. This will take four to six weeks to be finished curing. Afterward, you will be able to use your finished soap!

First, make sure that you have a well ventilated area available to create your cp soap that is far away from children and pets. Also, have the appropriate safety attire ready for your own use. Next, clean up the areas that you intend to use for creating this soap. Finally, sanitize the equipment that you will be working with for this recipe.

First, you are going to create the melt and pout peep bunny soaps. These will be used to top the cold process soap that you will be making some later steps. So, before you begin the portion of the recipe that deals with the cold process soap you will be creating eight bunny peeps with melt and pour soap. When the time comes, you can choose to have two of each color or have a different color combination off peep bunny soaps. But, we will provide the amounts needed to achieve the correct colors. So, lets start with the melt and pour.

Peeps Cold Process Soap Recipe Melting the Soap

Now, you are going to melt the soap needed to create the bunny peep soaps. Since each peep will require 40 grams of melt and pour soap and we are creating two at a time, we will begin by melting 80 grams of the Oatmeal Melt and Pour Soap. Melt this in 30 second increments. After you color this portion of your soap, you will melt three additional portions in their own bowls to be colored.

Next, you can add the color and scent to your melted soap. Take the melted 80 grams of Oatmeal Melt and Pour Soap from the previous step. Add 4 grams of the Yummy Gummy Fragrance Oil and the colorant of your choice. Depending on you decision, you will use 2 grams of Neon Pink, 2 grams of Deep Purple, 2 grams of Neon Blue, or 1 gram of Neon Yellow. You can either do a set of each color, or pick your favorites.

Then, you can fill the bunny peeps silicone soap mold. After you color your melt and pour soap, you can pour it into the molds. This should fill two bunny molds. Also, make sure you spray the top of the soap before you move on to you next batch of melt and pour. Once you have repeated these steps to get eight filled bunnies, then its time to move on to the next step.

Finally, the last step of the melt and pour process is to cover the bunny peeps in sugar. Once the soap is set up, remove them from the mold. Next, spray the peep bunny soaps with rubbing alcohol to get the sugar to adhere. After, cover the peeps in sugar and be sure to remember the sides as well. Next, let them dry before spraying and coating the backs of your bunny soaps.

Second, we are going to create the cold process soap portion of this recipe. Set your sugar coated peep bunny soaps aside. After the cp soap is set up in the mold, these will be used in decorate the top of the loaf. Until then, we will use the same four different colors along with white to create a swirled cp soap. Thus, we will be using an in the pot swirl technique.  So, lets get the cold process soap started.

Next, we are going to get some medium mixing bowls ready with colorants. While we will only have four colors, you will need to have five bowls. Also, we will be adding 225 grams of soap to each so make sure the bowls are big enough.

So, in each of the bowls we will add one color or titanium dioxide. You will put 5 grams of Neon Yellow FUN Soap Colorant in the first bowl and in the second you will put 5 grams of Neon Pink FUN Soap Colorant. The third will have you put in 4 grams of Deep Purple FUN Soap Colorant and the fourth will have 4 grams of Neon Blue FUN Soap Colorant.

Our own Cold Process Soap Testing Results have shown to us that this calming fragrance oil is a great choice for this method. There was no ricing and no separation found in batches that used this fragrance. There was acceleration, due to all of the floral notes involved in this aroma. This acceleration can be reduced by soaping at lower temperatures. The final cp soap had no discoloration in the bars and the scent remained good in the soap bars. We suggest green soap colorant in these bath and body creations, but other methods can be used as long as you avoid candle dyes.
