Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate- SLSASodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate- SLSA

We have an exciting new blog for everyone today! We will be introducing to you a new product that we recently added onto the Natures Garden website. There are a couple reasons for writing this blog. First, we want to give you information about this product to educate you about it. Second, we want to show you a different way to create your favorite and most loved bath and body products. New ways of doing things are constantly emerging. It can be very beneficial to try things out other ways than you are used to. You may find a new personal preference that you didn’t know you had! Plenty of methods are out there for making homemade recipes. Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate, is the product we are introducing today. We are excited to be talking about our new product and hope you get to enjoy it as much as we do!

All About SLSA

Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate is a surfactant that is derived 100% naturally. It comes from coconut oil and palm oil. It is also completely free of all sulfates. A surfactant is a surface acting agent, which basically means that it causes products to fizz and foam. There are a plethora of homemade cosmetic items that you can make with SLSA. Starting with bath bombs, the two most important ingredients to make them are baking soda and citric acid. The combination of these two is necessary in order to cause the fizzing reaction when the bath bomb hits the water. SLSA is going to contribute incredible foaming qualities to your bath bombs that will accompany the fizzy reaction. Another product that can be made using SLSA is bath bubble bars. This is the perfect surfactant to use to make these because of the foaming quality it contributes. Your bath water will be exploding with mounds of bubbles when these hit the bath water. You can also use SLSA to create many other cosmetic related products too, such as shampoo bars, liquid soap, and facial washes.

The Benefits of Using SLSA

Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate carries a lot of benefits along with it. SLSA brings to the table many elements that are very beneficial to the skin. What might just be the greatest quality of this surfactant is that it can be used on every type of skin and hair. We feel this characteristic is important, and products with SLSA work really nicely for people with dry and sensitive skin. There are so many different skin conditions out there such as eczema, rosacea, acne, and psoriasis. We want to be able to cater to our customers and provide them with products that will work for all types of skin. This is just one of the reasons we decided to add SLSA to our website. Personally, my skin tends to be more on the dry side. When I took a bath using a bubble bar made with SLSA, it left my skin feeling more hydrated. This is one of my favorite things about this product.

Another key benefit of using SLSA in your homemade bath product recipes is that it will provide a much thicker lather to them than other surfactants will. This quality contributes significantly to creating bubbles that are actually long lasting. SLSA readily dissolves in water because of its small particles, which is great for things like bath bombs. Other great things about it are the excellent flash foam that it has, the two year long shelf life, and the versatility of the product. Powder shampoos and bath salts are some of the other recipes SLSA can help create that we have not mentioned. There are many other cosmetic items this can make, which we will be mentioning later on. Next, we want to discuss how SLSA compares to other types of surfactants.

SLSA in Comparison to Other Surfactants

SLSA is a product that is extremely versatile in this industry. It can be the perfect alternative to other surfactants such as Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (SCI) and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS). SCI is a customer favorite that we sell at Natures Garden. Each of these also contribute plenty of versatility in cosmetic recipes, projects, and products. Similarly to SLSA and coconut oil, SCI derives from coconut. Some of the recipes that we have on our website that were made using SCI include the Pearamel Salt Scrub recipe, Lavender Mint Bath Bomb, and our Rainbow Bath Salts recipe. Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is another type of surfactant that commonly gets used for soap making. It is an inexpensive item that makes for a great foaming agent in different personal care products. As we mentioned, many of the same recipes can be created with any of these. However, your recipes will have individual elements added to them based on the one you use.

These three surfactants are great for making all kinds of homemade bath products. Some of the different ones include bath truffles, bubble scoops, and body scrubs. Although SLSA can be used as an alternative to both SCI and SLS, we wanted to share some of their differences. SCI has qualities in it that benefit the skin. Products that are made with SCI tend to have more moisturizing elements in them than those made with SLS or SLSA. One example of this is in bubble bars. Compared to other surfactants, a bubble bar made with SCI is going to make your skin feel more softened and silky smooth after taking a bath. However, a bubble bar made with SLSA is going to create a lot more lather and extra bubbles for your bath compared to the others. The surfactant you choose to use depends on what you are looking for. If you want more of a bubbly bath, SLSA will provide that.

Recipes That Can Be Made with SLSA

In order to give all of you a realistic idea of what to expect with this product, we created some new recipes to showcase it. We will be selling SLSA in two different size options, a 16 ounce package and a ten pound package. For this blog, we have prepared three recipes to share with you. There is the Sparkling Sangria Body Scrub, the Sangria Shimmer Bath Bombs, and the Sangria Scoopable Bubble Bars. Each one of these were made using the Natures Garden Sangria Punch Fragrance Oil, which is a perfect blend of fresh fruit and wine. This is one of our best selling fragrances. We are super excited to get to show you how you can create these recipes too!

Recipes That You Can Make with SLSA: Sparkling Sangria Body ScrubRecipes You Can Make with SLSA: Sparkling Sangria Body Scrub

The first recipe we are sharing with you is our Sparkling Sangria Body Scrub. This luxurious product is going to make your skin feel wonderfully moisturized and exfoliated. We used enriching ingredients such as mango butter, avocado oil, jojoba oil, palm oil, and coconut oil 76. The mango butter has properties that provide softness to the skin as well as moisturizing qualities. This is a popular product in many of our recipes such as lip balms, lip glosses, lotions, and scrubs for this reason.

The moisturizing quality of avocado oil makes it such a common ingredient in recipes for soap, lotions, massage oils, and scrubs. The jojoba oil contributes to lather and also contains moisturizing properties. The palm oil gives this scrub a nice creamy lather, while the coconut oil produces a nice bubbly lather. All of these ingredients mixed together make up this wonderfully exfoliating body scrub. Mixing up different oils, butters, fragrances, and more can create variety within your products, which is important. We tested out the SLSA in this product to add to the variety in our recipes. This surfactant makes this more of a foaming body scrub, as opposed to some of our other scrubs. Additionally, it adds significantly to the lather and application to the surfaces of the body. It can also help treat any patches of dry skin that you may have because of the SLSA it contains.

Recipes That You Can Make with SLSA: Sangria Shimmer Bath BombsRecipes That You Can Make with SLSA: Sangria Shimmer Bath Bombs

The second recipe that we made using Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate are these Sangria Shimmer Bath Bombs. Our new product is perfect for making bath bombs. Some of the other bath bombs on the Natures Garden website use SCI. As you know, we switched that up in this recipe. The purpose of using a bath bomb for most people is to watch the bath bomb fizz. When the SLSA is added into a bath bomb recipe, it will fizz AND foam. What could be better than that? These will let you experience a bubble bath in a brand new way and they are simple to make. We love them!

Recipes That You Can Make with SLSA: Sangria Sparkle Bubble BarsRecipes You Can Make with SLSA: Sangria Scoopable Bubble Bars

Our last recipe to share is these Sangria Scoopable Bubble Bars. Who does not love to take a nice, relaxing bath after having a long day? These bubble bars are the perfect product to help you to a night of relaxation. To use the sangria bubble bars, run a couple under warm bath water. They will start foaming immediately. We love these bubble bars because of the bubbles they provide. Unlike bath products made with SCI, these have much more lather to them! This is because SLSA is a surfactant that has more of a foaming quality to it. Therefore, the products made with it are also more foamy and bubbly. These will give you one of the most relaxing baths you have ever had!

More Fun with SLSA

We have covered some of the benefits of SLSA, but this page gives you the full run down. We also found a blog page that is super helpful when it comes to learning different ways you can make bath bombs. The website is actually called How to Make Bath Bombs! This specific recipe is written by a user named KCAT, who attempts to duplicate a very popular bath bomb recipe. In this step by step recipe, she used SLSA to create her bath bomb, just like we did!

We hope that you enjoyed learning all there is to know about SLSA with us and the different ways it can be used! If you try out any of the recipes that we mentioned today, we would love to hear how they turned out for you. Reach out to us on social media to share your results!

  • Mixing Bowls (two)
  • Mixing Spoon
  • Scale
  • Toothpicks

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Total Recipe Amounts

We have included the amounts of each ingredient we will be using. As a side note,  while we give you both weight and volume measurements, we highly recommend using a scale as the measurements will be more precise amounts.

  • 410 grams (2 cups) Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (SCI)
  • 460 grams (2 cups) Sodium Bicarbonate- Baking Soda
  • 224 grams (2/3 cup) Cream of Tartar

  • 30 drops Yellow Da Bomb Soap Dye
  • 1 gram Activated Charcoal
  • 7 Pieces Cinnamon Sticks (1″ in length)

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Some of the Ingredients Used

Before we get started on our bubble bars, let’s get familiar with some of the ingredients. Our first ingredient is Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate or SCI. SCI is derived from coconut. It is a foaming and cleansing agent that will leave your skin silky soft and smooth.

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Sodium BicarbonatePumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Sodium Bicarbonate

Our next ingredient is Sodium Bicarbonate or Baking Soda. This is is a natural alkaline that is used in cosmetic formulations and cleaning formulas to lift dirt, and remove oils. Using baking soda in your bathtub will leave your skin soft and silky feeling.  It also has the same effect on your hair when used in a rinse. Baking Soda is most often combined with Citric Acid when making bath bombs.

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Cream of TartarPumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Cream of Tartar

Cream of Tartar is our next ingredient. Most people assume Cream of Tartar is just for baking, however, it is used in many bath products such as bath cookies and of course, bubble bars. Cream of Tartar acts as a stabilizer and allows the ingredients to adhere each other. It will also give the product a more “airy and fluffier” texture.

Pumpkin Bubble Bars recipe: Corn StarchPumpkin Bubble Bars recipe: Corn Starch

Corn Starch is up next. This is another ingredient used widely in the culinary world as a natural thickener for soups, gravies or sauces, but corn starch is also widely used in skincare formulas to provide the skin with silkiness and to relieve irritation.

 

 

 

Pumpkin Bubble Bars: Pumpkin Seed OilPumpkin Bubble Bars: Pumpkin Seed Oil

Because we are making pumpkins, we chose to incorporate some Pumpkin Seed Oil! Pumpkin Seed Oil is loaded with many nutrients, such as, Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, Vitamins E, A, and C.  It is also rich in the mineral, zinc. Pumpkin seed oil readily sinks into the skin; not leaving the skin feeling oily and can help to repair dry, damaged skin.

 

 

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Harvest Moon Fragrance OilPumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Harvest Moon Fragrance Oil

The fragrance we chose for these fall bubble bars, is our Harvest Moon fragrance oil. This fragrance is a fresh, crisp mix of blueberries, pineapple, eucalyptus with woodsy bass notes of spruce, fir and cedar. A complex mixture of scents that wouldn’t seem like they could go together. Very unique!

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Before You Get Started

Before you get started on your bubble bars, it’s always best to take a few precautionary steps. Start by cleaning and sanitizing your work area thoroughly. Also, clean your utensils and equipment well. Make sure that you have a large enough work area and have all your ingredients and equipment handy. This will help your creating run smoothly without any interruptions. We also suggest that you were gloves, an apron, face mask and hair net while preparing this recipe.

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Prepping the Dry IngredientsPumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Prepping the Dry Ingredients

Now that your prepared and everything is clean and sanitized, it is time to get started. Our first step will be prepping the dry ingredients. Take a deep mixing bowl, place it on your scale and tare out the weight. To the bowl, weigh in 410 grams Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, 460 grams of Baking Soda, 224 grams of Cream of Tartar and 72 grams of Corn Starch. Using your hands, go ahead and blend these ingredients well, breaking up any lumps you find in the mixture. Once all the dry ingredients are incorporated well, you can set this bowl aside for the time being.

Next, you will be prepping the wet ingredients. So take a small mixing bowl, place it on the scale and tare out the weight. To that mixing bowl, weigh in 200 grams of Vegetable Glycerin, 24 grams of Pumpkin Seed Oil and 14 grams of Harvest Moon fragrance oil. Give this a nice stir to mix the oils well. Once they are mixed nicely, you will then be adding this to the dry ingredients.

 

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Mixing the Wet and Dry IngredientsPumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Mixing the Wet and Dry Ingredients

Now that your oils are mixed nicely, go ahead and add them to the bowl containing the dry ingredients. Using your gloved hands, mix these ingredients together completely. Continue to mix until you have a dough-like consistency. Note: If your dough is too dry and crumbles, you can add a little more vegetable glycerin. However, use with caution. Adding too much will make your dough too wet and it may not setup properly.

 

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Setting Aside a Small Amount

You will be decorating the bubble bars with a small amount of the dough that will be colored later. So, take a small bowl and place it on your scale. Tare out the weight and to the bowl, add 28 grams of the dough mix. You can set this aside for the time being.

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Adding the Soap DyesPumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Adding the Soap Dyes

Next, we are going to color the dough to its orange pumpkin shade! To your mixed dough, add 20 drops of red Da Bomb Soap Dye and 30 drops of yellow Da Bomb Soap Dye. Once again, using your gloved hands, mix the dyes into the dough until you have achieved a nice, pumpkin orange.

 

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Forming the PumpkinsPumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Forming the Pumpkins

Next, you will be forming the dough into pumpkin shapes. Separate the dough into 7 even-sized portions and using your hands, form the portions into balls. Pack them tightly, just like if you were making a snowball. Make sure they are even and smooth with no cracks showing or they will not set up properly.

 

 

 

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Making the Pumpkin StemsPumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Making the Pumpkin Stems

Now that you have your pumpkins shaped and packed tightly, you will need to make the stems. For this, you will need the cinnamon sticks. You will want seven pieces that are about 1 inch in length. So, cut your cinnamon sticks to this length.

 

 

 

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Making the Pumpkin Stems

 

 

Once you have completed cutting them, gently place one stick into the dough, pushing slightly. You want to make sure it is centered and secure. Set each one aside for the moment.

 

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Using the Reserved DoughPumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Using the Reserved Dough

Now, that the pumpkins are made, you can now work on the reserved dough. Take the dough and weigh in 1 gram of Activated Charcoal. Work the charcoal into the dough with your hands until it is mixed in completely.

 

 

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Decorating the Bubble BarsPumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Decorating the Bubble Bars

Next, we get to have some fun with the pumpkin’s faces!  You can decorate your pumpkin bubble bars with the charcoal dough. You can create faces or words with the dough. Simply pull off small amounts of the charcoal dough and press it into the pumpkins to create your pumpkins how you want them to look.

 

 

 

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Decorating the Bubble Bars

 

 

To help create a more realistic look, take a toothpick and create lines in each pumpkin, starting at the top and ending about half way down the pumpkin.

 

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Let the Bubble Bars Setup

Now that you have completed decorating your bubble pumpkins, allow them to set up in a cool, dry, non-humid area for at least 24-48 hours. Once your bubble bars have hardened, they are ready to use! Simply crumble a bubble bar under warm, running bath water and enjoy!

However, our Dragon’s Blood Fragrance Oil is a Nature’s Garden best seller and is a perfect duplication of the incense or essential oil.

Dragon’s Blood did wonderfully in our cold process soap testing. No ricing, separating, or accelerating.

This should be a definite addition to your men’s line of products, but we have quite a few reviews stating that it makes a good unisex fragrance. I know I like it!

Green Irish fragrance oil worked beautifully in cold process soap testing! No ricing, accelerating, or separating! A perfect fragrance to work with if you want to add some color or swirls to your soaps.

This yummy fragrance oil did fairly well in cold process soap testing. We experienced some slight acceleration so soaping at room temperature is strongly suggested. However, there was no ricing, separating or discoloring to the soap. The scent stuck very well and stayed strong through the cure time. Sweet Orange Chili Pepper had wonderful hot and cold throws in candle making. It also made wonderful air fresheners and it worked well in all bath and body products.

With such a popular fragrance, we needed a recipe to go along with it. Nature’s Garden created Sweet Orange Chili Pepper Cold Process Soap Recipe. Our base soap recipe is helpful when creating the pretty red and orange swirls. There was no accelerating and it gave excellent time to do an in the pot swirl.

 

Powerful Fragrance Oils: Strawberry Passion Fragrance OilPowerful Fragrance Oils: Strawberry Passion Fragrance Oil

I know that most people think that strawberry may seem like a delicate, light fragrance to work with, but not Nature’s Garden Strawberry Passion! This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is an incredibly strong, rich ripened strawberry fragrance with bottom notes of cotton candy and French vanilla. Strawberry Passion fragrance oil will be a perfect summer addition and it will be sure to please those that like strawberries.

This fragrance did awesome in cold process soap testing. With no ricing, accelerating or separating, it was perfect to work with. However, it did discolor to a chocolate brown. In this case, if you are looking to keep your soap white, we suggest using Vanilla White Color Stabilizer to help you out.

Giraffe Bubble Bar RecipeGiraffe Bubble Bar Recipe

Did you know? The CEO of Nature’s Garden, Deborah Ward and her love for giraffes is the inspiration behind this creative and unique bubble bar? Bubble bars are a fun way to have a nice long soak in a warm tub. Simply, crumble up your bubble bar into some warm water and enjoy the abundance of bubbles that fill your tub! Whether you create this for personal use, friends and family or are just looking for a new addition to your line of bath and body products, we at Nature’s Garden hope you will enjoy creating our newest recipe to join the bubble bar family! Enjoy our Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe!

Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Let’s talk About the Ingredients

Before starting on our recipe, we’ll talk about some of the ingredients we are using. The first ingredient is what gives the bubble bar its bubbles! Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, or SCI.  This gentle surfactant is derived from coconut. It is a foaming and cleansing agent that will leave your skin silky and smooth!

Baking soda is best know for it’s cleaning and deodorizing properties. This gentle alkaline is amazing at leaving the skin soft and smooth, as well as your hair too!

Cream of tartar will give your product a light and fluffy feeling. It acts as a stabilizer and helps the other ingredients adhere to each other.

Corn Starch is the perfect ingredient to help sooth irritated skin and it also leaves your skin soft! The fragrance we chose was our Cucumber Fragrance Oil. This is a popular seller here at Nature’s Garden. True cucumber scent with an undertone of violet.

Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Prepping Your Supplies and Work Area

As with any recipe you should always prep your supplies and work area. This helps in creating your craft without stopping to look for your ingredients. First thing is to clean your work space and ensure that you have enough room to work and lay your dough down. Next, give your utensils and scale a quick clean with some soap and water. Lastly, have all your ingredients ready for measuring and withing easy reach! For sanitary reasons go ahead and put your rubber safety gloves on.  Just a few preventative steps will help things move along smoothly!

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing and Combining the Dry IngredientsGiraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing and Combining the Dry Ingredients

Our first step will be measuring and combining our dry ingredients. You will need a large mixing bowl and your scale. Set your scale to grams.  Next, weigh out 410 grams of Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, 460 grams of Sodium Bicarbonate- Baking Soda, 224 grams of Cream of Tartar, and 72 grams of Corn Starch. Give these ingredients a nice mixing with your hands, breaking up any clumps as you go.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing and Combining the Wet IngredientsGiraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing and Combining the Wet Ingredients

Next comes the wet stuff! You will need another mixing bowl ( or you can simply add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredient bowl) and your gram scale. Now weigh out 200 grams of Vegetable Glycerin, 24 grams of Sesame Seed Oil and 14 grams of Cucumber Fragrance Oil.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Mixing Everything Together

Let’s add the wet and dry ingredients together! If you have mixed your wet ingredients separately go ahead and dump them in with your dry. If you add your wet straight to the dry you can start mixing with your hands making sure that you are breaking up any lumps as you go. Mix until you have the right consistency (you should have a nice, smooth workable dough). If your dough is to crumbly after mixing together, you can add a bit more vegetable glycerin. Be careful to not add too much or the bubble bar will not set up properly.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Separating the Bubble Bar Dough

The third step in our recipe will be separating the bubble bar dough. For this you will need your 2 mixing bowls. You will divide the dough into 2 equal portions. Each portion will be a different color. We have included a color chart to help you achieve the correct color for the spots and the “skin” of the giraffe.

Bowl 1:

  • Brown Oxide- 6 drops
  • Orange Oxide- 3 drops
  •  Black Oxide- 6 drops
  •  Red Oxide- 6 drops

Bowl 2:

  • Yellow Oxide- 3 drops

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Making the Brown Colored PortionGiraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Making the Brown Colored Portion

Now that your dough is separated, let’s start adding color.  We will work on the spots and inner color of the bubble bar. To the first bowl, add your 6 drops of Brown Oxide, 3 drops of Orange Oxide, 6 drops of Black Oxide and 6 drops of Red Oxide FUN Soap Colorant. With your gloved hands mix the colorant into your dough until you have achieved an orange brown color.  Roll the dough into a ball and set it aside, for now.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Making the Yellow Colored PortionGiraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Making the Yellow Colored Portion

Next, let’s create the “skin” color of the giraffe. For this you will add 3 drops of Yellow Oxide FUN Soap colorant to your second bowl of dough. With clean gloved hands mix this colorant into your dough until you have a nice, pale yellow color. 

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar: Getting Ready to Roll the Layers

Now that our dough is separated and colored, we are ready to start rolling the layers. For this step you will use your silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Dust whichever you have chosen to use with some baking soda. This will help keep the dough from sticking when it is time to roll the dough. You should also dust your rolling pin with some baking soda to help prevent sticking.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar: Rolling out the First LayerGiraffe Bubble Bar: Rolling out the First Layer

Our first layer will be the yellow layer. Go ahead and take your yellow dough ball and lay it in the center of the surface of your mat or paper. Now roll your ball into a flat, rectangular shape.  You will want this layer about 1/4 inch in thickness.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar: Laying Down the Second LayerGiraffe Bubble Bar: Laying Down the Second Layer

Next up is our Orange brown layer. Before you start rolling, however, you need to pull of about 30 grams of the dough and set this aside. This portion will be for the spots. Place the remaining dough in the center of the yellow rectangle dough and start rolling this layer out. You may add some baking soda to your rolling pin before you start to prevent sticking. Roll this layer out to the size or as close to the size of the yellow layer and at 1/4 inch thick. Once you have finished, you will be all set to move onto rolling the bubble bar dough into a loaf.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar: Rolling Up The Bubble Bar

Now that your layers are rolled out, you are ready to roll them into a loaf. Turn your silicone mat or parchment paper so that the mat or paper is vertical. Lift up on the edge of the paper or mat that is closest to your body. Begin to carefully roll the dough in the same way you would a pumpkin roll. Slowly roll the dough evenly as you go, watching to make sure everything stays lined up.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar: Adding the spotsGiraffe Bubble Bar: Adding the spots

Now that your dough is in its rolled up completely, we will begin using the orange brown colored dough we set aside to create our “spots”. Giraffe spots are not perfect in size and shape. This is the look you will want to go for. Pull off irregular size pieces of the reserved dough and add it to the yellow portion of your bubble bar. (Having trouble getting a good pattern in your head? Try Googling “giraffe” and find a pattern you can follow!)  Once your loaf is completely covered you will be ready to slice it up into individual bars.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar: Slicing your Finished ProductGiraffe Bubble Bar: Slicing your Finished Product

Let’s cut this loaf into slices! This recipe will make about 8 slices, depending on how thick you choose to slice your loaf. Using a sharp knife, slice the bubble bar into 1-2 inch slices. Once your loaf is completely sliced, lay the portions out on a flat surface to set up. Our bubble bars took approximately 48-72 hours to set up completely. This may take longer, depending on the climate of your  environment.

Your Giraffe Bubble Bar is ready to use! When it’s bath time, simply crumble a slice of bar under warm, running bath water and enjoy the bubbles that will froth up into your tub and have a nice, long soak! You will emerge from your bath smelling sweet, fresh and feeling soft and clean!

 

Did You Know?Did You Know?

Have you ever looked at the beauty of a giraffe? I mean, really watched them when you visit a zoo?  They are amazing creatures! Majestic in their movements, they roam the open grasslands in small groups. A giraffe’s height is both an advantage and a disadvantage. While towering at a height ranging from 14 to 18 feet tall they have the ability to spot predators. Their height helps them eat from the leaves of trees since the disadvantage in their height is bending down. It is incredibly difficult for them and it leaves them in a vulnerable state to be attacked.  Luckily, giraffes only need to drink once every several days since most of their water intake is from the leaves they consume. They can also run a steady 35 miles an hour over short distances and comfortably at 10 miles per hour over longer distances. 

Giraffes are truly beautiful animals and their eyelashes! They are to die for! Another fun giraffe fact is that a group of giraffes are called a tower! Kind of fitting, right? Towers usually consist of females and babies, however genders will vary and they can come and go as they please.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Preparing Your Work Space

Before you start, we would like to suggest that you make a few preparations. A pair of gloves is recommended, as you will need to mix with your hands. An apron may be useful to protect your clothing.  Also, a hair net and face mask are recommended. Second, you are going to want to prepare all your ingredients and supplies for this recipe. This will ensure that the project runs smoothly and you have all the materials that you need. Finally, you should clean your work space and equipment to make sure that your recipe will be clean and free of dirt.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing the Dry Ingredients

First, we are going to combine all of your dry ingredients into one of your mixing bowls. So, get a medium or large mixing bowl ready. Also, you will need a gram scale in order to measure these ingredients. Then, to your bow,l weigh out 460 grams of the Baking Soda, 410 grams of the Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, 224 grams of the Cream of Tartar, and 72 grams of the Corn Starch.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Mixing the Dry IngredientsPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Mixing the Dry Ingredients

Next, you are going to mix these previously measured ingredients together. You will need to make sure that these dry ingredients are mixed together well before moving on to the next step. Also, make sure you break up any clumps in the powders. This will ensure that each essential ingredient is evenly dispersed and clump-free throughout your entire batch.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing the Wet IngredientsPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing the Wet Ingredients

Now, you are going to weigh your wet ingredients. You can do this part of the recipe one of two ways. You could weigh your ingredients into a small bowl and transfer them into your large mixing bowl of dry ingredients. Alternatively, you can measure the wet ingredients into the same mixing bowl as your dry ingredients. Either way you will need to measure out 200 grams of the vegetable glycerin, 24 grams of the rice bran oil, and 14 grams of the Spring Rain Fragrance Oil.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Combining the Wet and Dry IngredientsPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Combining the Wet and Dry Ingredients

Now that both your wet and dry ingredients have been measured into your large mixing bowl you are ready to mix. Use your clean, gloved hands to mix together all of your ingredients. It is important that you mix these together well because you will be dividing the dough into portions. So, you will want to make sure that each portion has about the same amount of the ingredients.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Separating the Batch

Next, you are going to be separating your mixed bubble bar dough into two equal portions. So, grab your two other mixing bowls. You will need to put half of your batch into each of the bowls. You can eyeball the amounts or measure them if your would prefer. But, you just need to make sure that there is about half in each bowl.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe:Preparing the White PortionPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe:Preparing the White Portion

The white portion of your batch is very simple to prepare. The hardest part is making sure that this bowl contains about half of the total dough. After, you have divided up your batch just roll the uncolored bubble bar into a ball. You can leave this white bubble bar dough ball in this bowl until we are ready to roll out the layers. So, you can move on to preparing the other half of this recipe.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Preparing the Pink PortionPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Finish Preparing the Pink Portion

The second portion of the bubble bar dough is going to a bit more fun. While the first portion of this recipe was left uncolored, this section is going to be made a pretty shade of pink. Plus, this half of the bubble bar dough even uses Himalayan Pink Salt. This will create a pretty pink layer that would be wonderful for a diy salt soak. So, lets get started on creating the fun half of this bubble bar recipe!

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding the Colorant to the Pink PortionPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding the Colorant to the Pink Portion

Now, you are going to prepare the other half of your bubble bar dough. So, take this second half and add in three drops of the Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant. This amount is perfect for giving us a pretty shade of pink for this layer of the bubble bar. You will need to use your gloved hands to mix this color into the dough evenly. You will want to want sure that you don’t have any specks of dye left unincorporated. 

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding the Colorant to the Pink PortionPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding the Colorant to the Pink Portion

Now that this portion is colored, you will need to finish up this half of the batch. First, you are going to add in the Himalayan Pink Salt to your dough. So, weigh out 10 grams of the fine ground pink salt. Make sure that you mix this ingredient into the dough very well. Once all of the fine pink salt has been incorporated you can roll the dough into a ball. Now, you are ready for the next step in the process.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Flattening Out the DoughPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Flattening Out the Dough

Next, you are going to be rolling out the dough. Before you start you are going to want to lay down either a silicone mat or a piece of parchment paper. This will be used to roll our bubble bar once we have made our layers. Then, you will need to sprinkle this mat or paper with a bit of baking soda. This will make sure that your bubble bar is easy to roll and doesn’t stick to your mat or paper.

Our outside layer is going to be the pink portion, so you will need to roll this portion out first. You will need to use a rolling pin to flatten out this bubble bar dough. Try to roll the dough into a rectangular shape. Also, you will want the dough to be about a quarter inch thick.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Flattening Out the Second LayerPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Flattening Out the Second Layer

After your first layer has been rolled out, you are ready to flatten out the second layer. So, take your uncolored dough ball and place it right on top of the pink layer. Now, flatten this layer out to match the rectangular shape of the first layer. You will be finished once the layers are about the same thickness and size. But, you don’t need to be exact. The slight imperfections will add to the uniqueness of each bubble bar!

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Creating the RollPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Creating the Roll

Now that your two layers have been made you are ready to roll your bubble bar loaf. So, turn your parchment paper of silicone mat vertically, as shown to the right. Next, you will lift up the edge that is closest to you. You will need to begin to roll the dough onto itself. This process is similar to how you would wrap a jelly roll or pumpkin roll. You will want to go slowly as you roll and continue until all of the dough has been rolled into the loaf.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Topping the Bubble BarPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Topping the Bubble Bar

Once the bubble bar loaf has been created, you are ready to start decorating the top of your bath and body product. Part of the decorating will be done with Coarse Ground Himalayan Pink Salt. You will be sprinkling the top of the loaf with the coarse ground pink salt. You should need about 20 grams of this for the top, but you can use more or less as you see fit. Also, you will need you slightly press the sprinkled pink salt into the top of the loaf. Otherwise, the pink salt will be likely to fall off easily and you will lose all of your pretty shades of pink salt.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding The Mica Dust

The other ingredient that you will use to decorate is mica dust. This lovely powder is perfect for creating a bath and body product that shimmers and shines. For this recipe you will use both the 24k Gold Mica Pigment and the Diamond Dust Mica Pigment. Liberally sprinkle the top of your loaf with each mica powder. After, use a craft brush to remove any excess mica. Dusting off the mica will make sure that your bars don’t have streaks of gold mica after you slice your bars.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Slicing the Bubble BarsPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Slicing the Bubble Bars

Now you are ready to slice your bubble bar loaf into pieces! We suggest making each bar somewhere between one inch and two inches. This will make sure you have enough for each bath. Depending on the thickness you choose, you will have about eight individual bubble bars.

Once your slices have been made all you have to do is wait for your bars to set up. Based on how long our bubble bar took, it should take about 48-72 hours, or 2-3 days, for your bubble bars to completely set up. However, this can take longer depending on your climate. You will know that your bars are ready to use when they have hardened.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Finished ProductPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Finished Product

Finally, the gorgeous Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe is finished. Now you can store them, use them for a luxurious bath, or do what ever you’d like. If you are ready to use this beautiful bath product, then just crumble the bubble bar under some warm, running water. The easiest way to do this is do this is to draw a bath and crumble your bar as the tub is filling up. You are sure to enjoy this lovely bath recipe, especially since Himalayan Pink Salt is so great for your body!

20 Ways to Use Olive Oil

20 Ways to Use Olive Oil 20 Ways to Use Olive Oil

Pomace grade olive oil is a rich, thick, and green grade of olive oil that is extracted from the fruit and pits of the olives. Olive Oil is one of the most popular oils for soap makers to use.  Olive oil creates white bars of soap that are very moisturizing, hard in comparison to other bars, and are exceptionally mild.  However, olive oils also works quite well in other cosmetic recipes. This oil will soften, smooth, and nourish your dry or damaged skin. So, adding this oil to your homemade body lotions, bubble bars, or scrubs would add in this extra moisturizing power. Further, this oil is less likely to clog your pores and is able to sink deep down into the skin. So, your product will not just sit on the top layer of the skin with a greasy film. Instead, this oil will nourish the skin all the way down and promote healthy growth. Below, we will show you 20 ways to use olive oil in your handcrafted bath and body products.
