How To Make Yogurt Soap: Caramelised Fig Soap

Cold process soaps are a whole lot of fun to make. 

If you are looking for a more challenging soap making, cold process is the way to go. 

Today’s recipe is for the Creamy Caramelized Fig Yogurt Soap. We make it by combining an oil mix with lye flakes, distilled water and yogurt. The oil mix moisturizes the skin leaving it smooth and healthy. It also is rich with vitamins and mineral which nourish the skin, giving it a youthful glow. 

Yogurt moisturizes the skin and reduces discoloration of the skin. This gives the skin an even tone. Finally; add apricot fragrance oil for a sweet fruity smell. 

To finish it off, add purple liquid color pigment. Enjoy!

How to Make 

Visual Guide  

  1. Combine lye flakes with distilled water carefully. Wear gloves & long sleeves to avoid backsplash getting in contact with exposed skin. 

  2. Slowly mix with a whisk until all the lye flakes have dissolved in the distilled water. Solution may become hot, do be cautious. 

  3. To bring lye solution to room temperature, place container in a water bath. 

  4. Measure out your Caramelised Fig Yogurt carefully to avoid any spillage and then set aside. 

  5. Separately, pour your Oil Mix into a heat resistant mixing container. Combine room temperature Lye Water with the oil mix.

  6. Next, use a whisk and mix until it reaches thin trace. Timing of this may vary as the faster you mix, the faster solution will saponify and reaches thin trace. 

  7. Next, add in Apricot Fragrance Oil. For this, use a pipette for easy measuring & dispensing  

  8. Add in Caramelised Fig  Yogurt into the container and mix everything using a whisk until yogurt & oil are evenly dispersed throughout the soap mixture. 

  9. Next, split soap mixture into 2 equal parts using another container. 

  10. In container 1, add in White Liquid Colour Pigment into the mixture. Mix again until colour is dispersed equally. 

  11. In container 2, add in purple liquid colour pigment. Again, mix until colour is evenly distributed throughout the soap. 

  12. Prepare your silicone mold. Spray with Rubbing Alcohol to sanitise mold. Next, pour in soap mixture from container 1 into each cavity half way full. Pour carefully, soap might still be warm. 

  13. Next, fill cavity with soap mixture from container 2. Again, be careful when doing so. 

  14. Using the tip of a whisk, twist and pull to form soft peaks as well as create a beautiful pattern in between the white & purple soap. Then, leave soap to harden for 24 to 48 hours. 

  15. Once hardened, carefully pull mold away from soap. This will help  preserve those desired sharp & crispy edges of the soap.  

  16. Whenever you feel ready, gently push soap out from the mold.  

  17. Soap will be needing 2 - 4 weeks to fully cure before it is used. Keep soap aside till then.
