Preparation method:
Add the phase A ingredients to a larger heat-resistant glass, and place in a water bath until the soap has completely melted. After melting, remove from the heat.

Add the ingredients of phase B over phase A and mix well. Then add the phase C ingredients one at a time, as fast as possible, so that the soap does not harden prematurely. Stir a little after each addition, manually.

Once all the ingredients are in the glass, start mixing with the mini mixer. The composition will begin to absorb air and double in volume.
Place the glass in a bowl of cold water and continue to mix until the mixer can no longer cope. A solid and stable foam is formed.
The composition is ready and it is transferred to the dedicated container.
