Soap making with melt and pour soap

1. Chop and melt your soap base

  • Tip the melt and pour soap base out of the packaging and onto a cutting board, then cut into small chunks.
  • Add to a heatproof bowl and melt gently in the microwave using 1 minute intervals and stirring in between until fully melted. If you don't have a microwave you can melt it in a heat proof bowl over a pan of boiling water.

3. Pour into your moulds

  • Pour into your moulds - you can use anything from purpose bought soap moulds, to recycled yogurt pots. We also offer a variety of silicone soap moulds.
  • Leave to set for about 6 hours and then tip the soaps out of the moulds and wrap them in clingfilm. This prevents the soap from sweating and losing moisture. Soaps made using melt and pour soap bases can be used straightaway as they don't require curing. Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
