Formula: 815127

Phase Ingredients for a 120 gr mold Quantity
A melt & pour soap base, white 105 gr
A shea butter 4,8 gr
A pink 10 oxide, cosmetic pigment 0,6 gr
B hibiscus flower powder 2,4 gr
B orange peel exfoliator 4,5 gr
B natural cosmetic fragrance oil Freesia 3 gr

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

Preparation method:
Place the diced soap base (cut as small as possible, about 1 cm) together with the shea butter and the pigment in a heat-resistant container (Berzelius beaker or a stainless steel cup) and melt in a water bath.

After melting, add the phase B ingredients one at a time, as quickly as possible and mix well. Remove the composition from the water bath and mix until the soap begins to thicken slightly. Now pour it quickly into the mold.

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. 

A gentle exfoliating soap, pleasantly fragrant, with the addition of shea butter to be creamier and more comfortable on the skin.
