10" Silicone Loaf Mold
The flexibility of silicone just made unmolding "the loaf" so much easier! The inside of this mold has a high gloss finish giving your soap will have that smooth, professional finish. The sides are re-inforced to prevent bowing, so that your finished soap will be straight and perfect.
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.

I am a hobbyist. I only make a few batches a year. I have a regular plastic loaf mold that I always line with wax paper to get it to come out clean. Even then I get wrinkles in the paper that transfer to the soap. With this silicone mold it comes out absolutely perfect! I did not experience bowing like the others but I only filled it 3/4 full. I wish I would've bought this a long, long time ago. Makes soaping very easy.
I LOVE this mold! I wouldn't say it "suffers from extreme bowing" im used to using liners with books stacked on either side so when i finally was able to get this mold i was so excited! it has a SLIGHT curve in the middle which i actually prefer because it helps take out the loaf much faster. If you use the appropriate amount of soap batter at the appropriate consistency/trace then there is not even a slight curve. Even when ive stuffed it with 60 oz or so its still perfect. its also a bit translucent so i can see my actual soap and designs at the bottom etc.it stays straight up and perfect compared to regular molds and liners. i dont need a box or liner or books for this mold so for me its easy! cant get more spoiled then that.
I use 4 of these at once to make 36 1-inch bars per batch. I only wish my kitchen counter were larger, I'd do even more! They do suffer from extreme bowing, as others have mentioned. However, to get a perfectly straight bar, I made some wood frames to provide support for each loaf. I love how easy the loaf pops out of these.
This mold has held up well in my soaping. It will bow, slightly, but I've found my gelling "tools" fix this without any issue. Cleans up in the dishwasher really nicely. Thanks BB!
I have purchased 10 of these molds, some thru my personal account..some thru the Soap Business account. I ADORE these molds.. TOTALLY !!
I usually throw them in the freezer for 20 to 30 mins to un-mold the soap and then toss them in the dishwasher to clean the scent from them.
I have had no problems using them over the years.. yes years.. I am not sure but some of them are over 3 years old !!
I have made up to 200 bars in a day with these molds.. and prefer them over my wooden ones.. they are easy to work with, and they standing up to marathons of soap-making during busy Seasonal use.
They have stood up to extreme temperature changes, Cold Process, and all manner of Essential oils and Micas !!
I swirl..layer...everything with them !!
ADORE THESE MOLDS!!
