High Sudsing Liquid Soap Paste: This liquid soap paste is made up of Olive Oil and Castor Bean Oil, which makes it a great all purpose base that can be used as a laundry soap with other additives or as a bath and body shower soap. Two pounds of soap paste can make up to seven or eight pounds depending on your dilution rate.
Directions for Diluting: To dilute your soap paste, we recommend using a large pot so your pot will be half full when you're done. When the water is boiling, add the paste and stir thoroughly. Keep in mind that this can take up to eight hours depending on how much paste you're diluting at one time. When the soap paste is fully dissolved it's ready to use. Let the liquid soap cool and add your fragrance or colorant (or both). Recommended dilution rate 4:1.
Thickening Directions: Make a 20% salt water solution by adding regular Table Salt to warm water. Then slowly add the solution until you have your desired thickness. The soap will slowly thicken over an hour. You can also thicken the soap by using Borax at .1% usage rate or Crothix at a 1-8% usage rate.
