Baby Buttermilk Melt and Pour Soap Base is a white, detergent free base that contains buttermilk, oatmeal, calendula extract, and real natural honey for exemplary moisturizing benefits. The two-pound tray is the perfect size container for projects making (8) 4 oz. bars of soap. The lid allows for unused soap to easily be stored for future use. No need to wrap bars and loaves of soap to prevent sweating and for that reason we say it’s like cold process soap. You will find that, like traditional CP Soap Base, unwrapped soap will cure and shrink a bit overtime. The base is softer upon unmolding and then hardens while it cures….this is ideal for those selling slice your own soap loaves. If any sweating does occur, let soap set out to cure for up to a week. Once sweating is gone, wrapping will not be necessary. MELT: Determine amount of melt and pour soap base needed for your project. Carefully slice soap base into small pieces and place in microwave safe container. Heat on low at 30 second intervals. Stir between intervals until liquid. Handle hot soap carefully as it may burn the skin. Soap can also be melted in a double boiler. MOLD: Stir in cosmetic color, cosmetic scent, and skin safe additives. Pour into a mold and spritz soap surface with rubbing alcohol to remove bubbles. Allow to cool until hard.
