Description

Melt and pour soap is a great option for crisp and clean layers. There are a few tools and techniques you need for that. The first is patience. It’s important to allow the soap to cool and harden enough to support the next layer. The next is paying attention to temperature. It's crucial that the soap isn’t too hot when it’s poured or it may melt the layer below. The last is 99% isopropyl alcohol – it needs to be sprayed before each pour to help the layers adhere. We also like to spray it after pouring to get rid of bubbles.

Because of the bakery notes in the Cinnamon Cocoa Fragrance Oil, this soap will discolor without Vanilla Color Stabilizer. We added it to the white and brown soap to prevent bleeding in between the layers.

To make each layer exactly the same size, place the mold on a scale and pour 10 ounces of white soap into the mold. Spritz the soap with 99% isopropyl alcohol to get rid of bubbles. Allow the layer to harden and cool for about 20-30 minutes so it can support the next layer.

Melt 20 ounces of Honey Melt and Pour Soap Base in the microwave using 30-60 second bursts. Add shavings of the Brown Oxide Color Block and stir until you have a rich chocolate shade.

Add 0.4 ounces of Cinnamon Cocoa Fragrance Oil and 0.4 ounces of Vanilla Color Stabilizer. Stir thoroughly. Allow the soap to cool to 125-130° F so it doesn’t melt the soap below. Note: The Vanilla Color Stabilizer prevents the discoloration from bleeding into the white layers.

Spritz the white layer with 99% isopropyl alcohol and place the mold onto a scale. Pour 10 ounces of the brown soap into the mold and spritz with alcohol to get rid of bubbles. Allow the soap to cool for 20-30 minutes.
