Add the diced soap base to a heat-resistant container, over which the rest of the phase A ingredients are added one by one. Place in a water bath and heat until the Sodium coco-sulfate has completely melted, stirring the composition often.

After melting, remove the container from the water bath, mix well for approximately 10 seconds, then add the fragrance oil and mix again vigorously, for a few seconds.
