Chapter 6. Silky Lime and Ginger Shampoo Soap
9.5 ounces lye
23.7 ounces distilled water
2.88 ounces rosehip (seed) oil
10.8 ounces pomace olive oil
7.2 ounces clear jojoba oil
3.6 ounces sweet almond oil
11.52 ounces refined 76F melt point coconut oil
10.8 ounces babassu oil
7.2 ounces argan oil
7.2 ounces apricot kernel oil
3.6 ounces refined and deodorized shea butter
7.2 ounces refined and deodorized cocoa butter
3 tablespoons French green clay
2 ounces silk amino acids powder
4.5 ounces Fresh Ginger Lime fragrance oil
Step 1: Water/lye mixture
Add the lye to the distilled water and stir all the time until dissolved. Set the mixture aside to cool.
Step 2: Combine the oils and butters
Combine the oils in a separate bowl and mix in the butters. Melt over medium heat.
Step 3: Blend
Then, add the lye and water mixture to the oils and use a stick blender to combine. When it reaches a light trace, add the silk, fragrance oil, clay, and amino acids powder. Again, mix well to combine the ingredients
Step 4: Molding and cutting into bars
Pour the soap mixture into the molds. Cover the molds and leave for 24 hours to harden. Then, you can remove the soap from the molds, and if you used large containers, you can cut the soap into bars.
Step 5: Leave to cure
Leave the soap bars for about 4 to 6 weeks to cure, and then you can use them.
