Rosehip powder is full of vitamin C, which makes it a popular additive for beauty recipes. Interestingly, it’s not the rosy color you’d imagine. Instead, rosehip powder is a mustard yellow hue that changes to burgundy in cold process and melt and pour soap.

Rosehip Melt and Pour Soap Project
This recipe is made with rosehip powder and rose clay, which creates a soft pink color with plenty of skin-loving properties.
Silicone Column Mold
32 oz. White Melt and Pour Soap Base
4 tsp. Rose Clay
2 tsp. Rosehip Powder
2 Tbsp. Poppy Seeds
0.3 oz. Lavender 40/42 Essential Oil
0.3 oz. Lemongrass Essential Oil
99% Isopropyl Alcohol in a Spray Bottle
Optional: Crinkle Cutter
COLOR PREP: Dispersing powders in alcohol helps them mix into the melt and pour soap without clumps. Mix 4 teaspoons of rose clay with 1 tablespoon of 99% isopropyl alcohol and 2 teaspoons of rosehip powder with 1 tablespoon of 99% isopropyl alcohol. Set colorants aside. Pour alcohol in the spray bottle and set aside.
Chop 32 ounces of White Melt and Pour Soap Base into small uniform pieces. Place all the soap into a large heat-safe bowl. Place the bowl into the microwave and melt the soap using 30 second bursts. Between each burst, stir the soap to help it melt evenly and prevent overheating.
Add all of the dispersed rose clay and rosehip powder to the melted soap and stir well.
Add 0.3 ounces of lavender 40/42 essential oil, 0.3 ounces of lemongrass essential oil, and 2 tablespoons of poppy seeds. Stir to fully mix in the ingredients.
Move the mold to where you’d like the soap to cool and harden. If it's moved after the soap is poured in, the seal can break and cause a leak.
Check the temperature of the soap. If it’s above 130° F, the poppy seeds may fall to the bottom of the mold. Once the soap is about 125° F, carefully pour into the mold. Use one hand to steady the mold as you pour to prevent it from falling over.
Spritz the top with 99% isopropyl alcohol to get rid of bubbles. Allow the soap to fully cool and harden for at least 4 hours or up to overnight.
Unmold the soap and use a crinkle cutter to cut it into bars. You can use a non-serrated knife if you prefer a smooth look. Wrap the soap in plastic wrap to prevent glycerin dew and enjoy.
