Green Tea Cold Process Soap (CP): How To Make


If you have been making soaps for a long time, making cold process soaps is a natural next step. Today’s recipe will be for the Green Tea Supreme; our second ‘tea’ inspired soap.

Cold process soaps are incredibly moisturizing and healthy for the skin. We added almond oil and distilled water to an oil mix consisting of castor, palm, olive and coconut oil. The oil mix has many benefits. For instance it keeps your skin moisturized and hydrated. This in turn makes your skin soft and smooth with a radiant glow. Almond oil is rich with Vitamin A which is great as anti aging. It also helps retain moisture in the skin which reduces dried and chapped skin. 
For a pleasant and relaxing aroma, we added Baby Clean and Goodnight Baby fragrance oils. 

For coloring, we used, chromium green and titanium dioxide mica.
