4" Silicone Loaf Mold: The flexibility of silicone makes unmolding a small loaf quick and easy. The inside of this mold has a high gloss finish giving your soap that smooth, professional finish. The sides are re-inforced to prevent bowing, but we have found that they sometimes curve ever so slightly. We think it's virtually impossible to see the curve of the loaf - especially once you've cut your soap into bars.
Tip: If making Cold Process soap in this (or any) silicone mold we recommend adding Sodium Lactate to your recipe. This will help to harden up your soap so that there won't be any dents or finger marks from unmolding the soap.
The mold holds 20 ounces when completely filled to the top but we reccomend keeping your recipes to 16 ounces and under for ease-of-use.

I don't sell soap, I just make it for me and for my family. (so the volumes can quickly get out of hand). Since I like to try small batches of different recipes and fragrances, this mold is just the perfect size. I can get 3 or 4 bars out of it depending on how thick I cut the slices. I love this mold. I have 2 of them and might end up buying a couple more.
I am just getting into the hobby of soaping and I wanted to start off small. I use melt and pour only until I can work up the nerve to try cold processed but this loaf is the perfect size to accommodate my beginner needs. It can be a little tricky releasing soap from the mold but having the flexibility to help it break the air lock is extremely helpful. I can push from the bottom while at the same time, pull from one side to help the air bubble form. It is very well insulated and takes a bit of time for soap to set. I'm happy with this mold and find it does exactly the job as described. I normally get 4 good sized bars out of this loaf mold.
I bought one of this molds because I wanted to test some new fragrances I bought. My mistake was buying only one mold! It is a great mold to use when a client just wants a couple of custom bars of soap. I definitely going to buy a few more of this cute molds.
I LOVE this little guy. SOOO versatile. I have been making a TON of test batches lately. I like trying different color patterns-not the basic swirls. This is PERFECT. I don't have to deplete my stock of oils to try a batch. I can cut it any way I want. This is a must have!
This mild is just right size-wise for my melt and pour projects. Very easy to use. The bottom sticks a little but there's no damage to the block or mold with a little poking with my thumbs. I used the BB crinkle cutter and got 3 lovely chunky bars plus those ends I love to crumble up and use in my laundry. I'll be getting a couple more of these molds pretty soon.
