Clean the worktop, mold and all utensils you work with, details in the general safety guidelines.
Add the shea butter and the soap base (cut into small cubes) to a heat-resistant glass/bowl, and melt in a water bath. Mix well in the meantime.
After the ingredients of phase A have completely melted, add the water and the Cocamidopropyl betaine powder from phase B, mixing slowly and thoroughly, continuing to heat the composition for 2-3 minutes. Meanwhile, with a spatula or teaspoon crush any formed lumps, to obtain a homogeneous texture.
Add the phase C ingredients, mix well and remove the container from the water bath. The composition is poured into the prepared soap 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.
