Whipped Soap BaseWhipped Soap Recipes

Have you created any whipped soap recipes?  If you haven’t, would you like to add a new product to your line of handcrafted soaps?  Often, customers ask how whipped soap is made.  The truth is it is actually very simple when using a base such as the whipped soap base.  Below, we will talk about whipped soap and how you can use it your handmade bath and body products.  In fact, not only can the whipped soap be used alone, it can also be used to create foaming scrubs.  Another use for the whipped soap is soap frosting when creating melt and pour soap.  So, read on to find some fun and creative ways to use whipped soap.

Whipped Soap Recipes: Creating Body Frostings

Let’s start by talking about creating body frostings.  Body frostings are simple to create and can be used just like soap.  However, they have the addition of powdered sugar.  We are often asked why the powdered sugar is added to the body frosting.  Well, the powdered sugar will help to thicken the base just slightly so that it has more of a frosting consistency.  Read on to find out the different ways that we have created body frostings.

Foaming Body Frosting Recipe

Foaming Body Frosting RecipeFirst, we have the foaming body frosting recipe.  This soap recipe is a great way to use the whipped soap base from Natures Garden.  This particular soap frosting uses a body safe fragrance oil along with the FUN Soap Colorants to give the soap a little color.  Finally, we topped the whipped soap with decorative sprinkles for a fun twist and an added bonus.

Creme Brulee Whipped Soap Recipe

Creme Brulee Body Frosting RecipeNow, we have the Creme Brulee Whipped Soap Recipe.  This whipped soap is scented with the Creme Brulee Fragrance Oil.  In addition, we added powdered sugar to thicken the soap slightly and give it a gentle exfoliation.  We also topped this soap with brown sugar and a blackberry embed to give it an adorable finishing touch.  This soap embed is created with the Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap.  It also uses the deep purple FUN Soap Colorant along with the black oxide FUN Soap Colorant to give the soap embed a dark purple color.

Chocolate Foaming Body Frosting Recipe

Mango Tangerine Bath Icing Recipe

Juicy Lemon Foaming Bath Whip RecipeAnother great way to make the whipped soap is the Juicy Lemon Foaming Bath Whip Recipe.  This soap making recipe uses the whipped soap base to create a lemon scented bath soap.  This whipped soap uses Juicy Lemon Fragrance Oil.  Juicy Lemon fragrance oil is the tart aroma of lemon.  The scent has a distinct lemon citron top note, a lilac nuance and lemon rind middle note, finishing with a gingery, woody base note.  In addition, we have added powdered sugar which will slightly thicken the base and give a very gentle exfoliation.

Whipped Soap Recipes: Shaving Cream Recipes

Another wonderful way to use the whipped soap base is in shaving cream recipes.  To create these type of recipes, you simply add a couple of ingredients to the base.  First, you want to add a clay.  Cosmetic clay will add glide to the finished product.  So, you can see why this is the perfect type of additive for shaving soap.  In addition, we have added cosmetic butter to each one.  Whether it be shea, cocoa, or mango butter, it really helps to give the shaving cream extra moisturizing power.

Whipped Shaving Cream Recipe

whipped shaving soapNext, we have the whipped shaving cream recipe.  We have added bentonite clay to this recipe to help pull impurities from the skin.  In addition, this cosmetic clay will give the whipped soap a fabulous glide that is perfect for shaving.  We have also added mango butter to the shaving soap for its moisturizing properties.  We scented this whipped shaving soap with Knock Out Fragrance Oil.  Knock out Fragrance Oil is a spicy, rich, warm woody fragrance with bright notes of lime, bergamot, and pineapple enhanced with notes of rose, muguet lily, and jasmine. These notes are sitting on masculine base notes of green moss, dark musk, cedar, sandalwood, and amber.  It is a true knock out!

Whipped Rose Clay Shaving Cream Recipe

Whipped Soap Recipes: Foaming Sugar Scrub Recipes

Next, the whipped soap recipe can be formulated to create a foaming sugar scrub.  A foaming sugar scrub is created simply by adding sugar to the base.  So, with the addition of granulated white sugar or brown sugar, you can create a quick product that will leave your skin feeling clean, soft, and exfoliated.  You can also add salt to create to the base to create a scrub with extra exfoliating power.

Toffee Crunch Latte Foaming Sugar Scrub Recipe

Whipped Soap Recipes: Soap Frosting Recipes

Now, I know what you are thinking, didn’t we already talk about body frosting?  Is this a typo?  The answer is no.  With the whipped soap base you can create a soap frosting that can be used to top your melt and pour soap or, in one case below, to create a rolled soap.  While all of the other whipped soap recipes that we have talked about can be simply placed in jars, these are a little different.  When the whipped soap is mixed with melt and pour soap, it can actually be used to top things like soap cupcakes.  In addition, it will setup and harden while still maintaining a frosting look.  When creating this type of recipe, we also add vegetable glycerin so that it still maintains some pliability.

Peeps Bunny Cupcake Soap Recipe

Peeps Bunny Cupcake Soap RecipeFirst, we have the Peeps Bunny Cupcake Soap Recipe.  This recipe is simply a cupcake that has been topped with the soap frosting that we talked about.  It uses Oatmeal Melt and Pour Soap Base from Natures Garden.  In addition, we have added an mp Peeps bunny to the top and sprinkles to give the soap a decorative touch.  To be completely honest, this lemon scented soap is my absolute favorite.

 

Chocolate Orchid Melt and Pour Soap Recipe

Chocolate Orchid Melt and Pour Soap RecipeAnother way to use soap frosting is to top a soap loaf like we did in the Chocolate Orchid Melt and Pour Soap Recipe.  This soap loaf is topped with fluffy soap frosting.  It is also scented with the Chocolate Orchid Fragrance Oil from Natures Garden.  So, it smells AMAZING!  In addition, it has brown swirls embedded throughout and purple soap confetti to give it a festive look and feel.  Finally, it was topped with the soap frosting and brown and purple soap confetti was added to the top.

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled Soap Recipe

Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled Soap RecipeFinally, we have the Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Rolled Soap Recipe.  This soap recipe can be difficult for beginners.  So, you definitely want to have some experience working with whipped soap recipes before attempting this soap recipe.  It is scented with Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle Fragrance Oil.  It was inspired by this cake roll recipe from Spend With Pennies.  So, the chocolate colored portion of the roll was created with melt and pour soap.  We added vegetable glycerin to the mp soap to give it flexibility.  Then, we created pink soap frosting and placed it on top.  Once we had the soap frosting in place, we rolled the soap just like you would roll a pumpkin roll.  We topped the soap with the whipped soap frosting, using rubbing alcohol to help hold everything in place.  Finally, we drizzled the soap with white mp soap.

Macaroon Melt and Pour Soap Recipe

Macaroon Melt and Pour Soap RecipeFinally, we have the Macaroon Melt and Pour Soap Recipe.  Of course, we scented this mp soap recipe with Almond Macaroon Fragrance Oil from Natures Garden.  However, this soap recipe uses the whipped soap base to create little soap sandwiches that look like macaroons.  We used the whipped soap base to create a soap frosting and used the soap frosting as our cookie filling.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub RecipeChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe

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.

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.

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.
