Recipe Directions

NOTE: If you are making these products for sale, good manufacturing practices recommend you wear a hairnet, gloves and a mask. We also recommend a clean apron.
  1. Weigh and cut up 4 oz. of Ultra White MP soap and place in a glass measuring cup. 
  2. Add 0.20 oz. of the Neon Coral & Cocktails Soap Color Bar and place in cup with soap. Heat both in microwave for about 30 seconds. Remove and stir. If solid pieces remain, heat in 15 second increments until completely melted.
  3. Pour soap into Guest Loaf Silicone Mold and let harden. Once soap has set up, remove from mold and set aside.
  4. Weigh and cut up 4 oz. of Extra Clear MP Soap and place in a glass measuring cup. Add 0.10 oz. of Granny Smith Green Sparkle Mica Soap Color Bar. Heat both in microwave for about 30 seconds. Remove and stir. If solid pieces remain, heat in 15 second increments until completely melted.
  5. Pour soap into Guest Loaf Silicone Mold and let harden. Once soap has set up, remove from mold and set aside.
  6. Using a Salad Shooter with the thin slice attachment, place the Granny Smith Green soap into the top and slice entire piece until done. If a Salad Shooter is not available, you can try a vegetable peeler or a mandoline slicer to make long green slices. Set aside to be used later.
  7. For the Neon Coral & Cocktails colored soap, we used the cheese grater attachment to make smaller, rounded curls. Again, if a Salad Shooter is not available, you can use a regular cheese grater with the larger holes. When this soap has been shredded, set aside in separate bowl.      
  8. Weigh and cut up 18 oz. of the Ultra White MP soap base and place in large glass measuring cup. Heat in microwave until completely melted. 
  9. Add 0.66 oz. fragrance oil and mix into soap.
  10. Taking spray bottle of rubbing alcohol, spritz the green and pink soap shreds on all sides. Layer these into the Tall & Skinny Silicone Loaf Mold, alternating colors.
  11. Once the temperature of white, melted soap has cooled down to between 125°-130° F, carefully pour this over the colored pieces. As the soap is poured, stop and gently tap mold onto counter to release any air bubbles that may be created. Do this once or twice during the pouring process.  
  12. Once the white soap has been poured, spritz the top of soap with rubbing alcohol to release any air bubbles on top of soap. Set aside to harden.
  13. Weigh and cut up 4 oz. of clear soap and place in glass measuring cup. Add 0.10 oz. of Neon Coral and Cocktails Soap Bar to the soap and heat in microwave until melted.
  14. Spritz top of white soap well with rubbing alcohol. Once this soap has cooled to around 125° F, pour over white layer, spritzing again when done. Let set up.
  15. For the final layer, weigh and cut up 12 oz. clear soap and add 0.20 oz. Granny Smith Green soap color bar. Add 0.20 oz. of white soap to cup. Heat in microwave until soap and color has completely melted. Stir well.
  16. Add 0.36 oz. fragrance oil and blend in.  
  17. Check temperature of soap, spritz top of pink soap with alcohol and then pour green soap over the top, remembering to spritz the top of soap with alcohol to release any air bubbles that have appeared after pouring. 
  18. Once soap has completely hardened, carefully remove from mold. Gently pull sides away from soap, then push on bottom until the soap releases and starts to push out of mold. 
  19. Place loaf in mitre box, if available, and cut into 8 slices using the wavy soap cutter.
  20. Wrap soap and label accordingly.
