How to Make (langkah-langkah

Visual Guide  

  1. First, prepare your Soap Base. Cut 350g of SoapLab’s Opaque White Soap Base into little cubes, the smaller the cubes the faster it will melt. 

  2. Place the cubes in a microwavable container. Place container in the microwave. Melt them at 20 seconds interval. Check during each intervals, this is to avoid your soap from getting burnt.

  3. Once soap base is ready and melted, add in 15g of Peppermint Essential Oil into the melted soap base. Use a pipette for ease measuring & dispensing. Mix with a spatula.

  4. Next, split soap mixture into two equal parts. Pour slowly as soap might still be warm at this point.

  5. Add in Green Mica that has been diluted with some glycerin into container 1. Mix again until mica is evenly dispersed in soap. 

  6. Repeat step 5 with Synstar Red Mica & soap mixture in container 2. 

  7. Next, grab your molds and Rubbing Alcohol. Spray the mold with alcohol in order to provide a sterile surface, ideal for your solid soap to sit in. Pour soap mixture from both containers into mold then spray again with rubbing alcohol to remove bubbles. 

  8. Once harden, remove soap from mold like so.  

  9. Cut soap into equal wedges. (Like cutting a pizza :p)

  10. Using the same mold, place each wedge next to each other alternately. Each mold should have 8 wedges.
