Project Description

If you need a caffeine fix, this is the perfect project.

The bars are made with Goat Milk Melt and Pour Soap Base, which has a gentle feeling on the skin. A touch of coffee seed oil is added to the melted base. It’s extracted from freshly-roasted coffee beans, so it has an intense smell and dark color. When adding extra oils or butters to melt and pour soap, we recommend about 1 teaspoon per pound of soap. If too much extra oil or butter is added, the soap may not harden properly. It can also develop a greasy feeling and have less lather.

Used coffee grounds add a bit of exfoliation. Make sure to let them dry thoroughly before use. We don’t recommend fresh grounds because they bleed in soap.

Creamy Coffee Melt and Pour Project

  • Skill Level: Beginner
  • Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 6 bars of soap

The bars are made with Goat Milk Melt and Pour Soap Base, which has a gentle feeling on the skin. A touch of coffee seed oil is added to the melted base. It’s extracted from freshly-roasted coffee beans, so it has an intense smell and dark color. When adding extra oils or butters to melt and pour soap, we recommend about 1 teaspoon per pound of soap. If too much extra oil or butter is added, the soap may not harden properly. It can also develop a greasy feeling and have less lather.

Used coffee grounds add a bit of exfoliation. Make sure to let them dry thoroughly before use. We don’t recommend fresh grounds because they bleed in soap.

You will need:

  • 6 Cavity Silicone Circle Mold
  • 22 oz. Goat Milk Melt and Pour Soap Base
  • 1 tsp. Coffee Seed Oil
  • 1 tsp. Used Coffee Grounds
  • 0.4 oz. Espresso Fragrance Oil
  • 0.4 oz. Vanilla Color Stabilizer
  • 99% Isopropyl Alcohol in a Spray Bottle

Follow these steps:

1

Chop 22 ounces of Goat Milk Melt and Pour Soap Base into small uniform pieces. Place the soap into a heat-safe container and melt in the microwave using 30-60 second bursts.

2

Add 1 teaspoon of coffee seed oil to the melted base and use a spoon to thoroughly mix. Add 0.4 ounces of Espresso Fragrance Oil and 0.4 ounces of Vanilla Color Stabilizer. Mix well.

3

Add 1 heaping teaspoon of the used coffee grounds and stir.

4

Allow the soap to cool to about 120-125° F. That prevents the coffee grounds from sinking to the bottom of the bars.

5

Fill each mold cavity. After each pour, spritz the soap with 99% isopropyl alcohol to help get rid of bubbles. Allow the soap to cool and fully harden for several hours or up to overnight. Remove from the mold and enjoy! To prevent glycerin dew, wrap each bar in plastic wrap.
