Geranium & Ginger regenerating soap

Geranium & Ginger regenerating soap

Formula: IL718

Phase Ingredients for a 90 gr mold Quantity
A melt & pour soap base, white 83 gr
A madder root powder 2,4 gr
A shea butter 3 gr
B allantoin 1 gr
B geranium essential oil 20 drops
B petitgrain essential oil 20 drops

Clean the worktop, mold and all utensils you work with, details in the general safety guidelines.

Preparation method:
Melt the diced soap base (as small as possible, about 1 cm) together with the shea butter and the madder root powder, in a heat-resistant container, which can be a Berzelius beaker or a stainless steel cup/kettle.

After melting, add the ingredients from phase B one at a time, mix vigorously and remove from the water bath.

Pour quickly into the prepared mold. Air bubbles can be removed by spraying with a little alcohol.

Leave the soap mold on a flat surface. After approximately 4 hours the soap is removed from the mold and left to dry until the next day, in an environment as dry as possible. After 24 hours, the soap can be used.

If the environment in which the soap is stored has medium or high humidity, "dew" may appear on its surface and a gelatinous layer may form. This is a natural phenomenon that occurs in all melt & pour type natural soaps.
To avoid this phenomenon, it is advisable to wrap the soap in a foil or store it in a hermetically sealed container.
When preparing a recipe, after removing the soap from the form/mold, it is stored in a dry place, but if it will not be used in soon, it will be wrapped in plastic foil.
