Simple Soap for Sensitive Skin, 125 g (2 Bars)
About this deal
Below you’ll find the cold process soap making procedure and ingredients you need to get started, along with the basic homemade soap recipe that I’ve used to make soap from scratch dozens of times. Many of the soap recipes I share on Lovely Greens are for 1 lb (454 g) batches. These are GREAT for beginner soap makers because they’re small and relatively inexpensive to make. Many soap recipes are for larger batches, which can be expensive if you make a mistake. Making small, simple recipes that give you six bars at a time is more than enough. Even after over a decade of making soap, I still prefer small batches over large ones. They’re much more fun, less stressful, and a fantastic way to try out new ingredients and recipes. You can make soap on any type of hob – gas, electric, induction or aga –in a stainless steel saucepan.

Mix the lye with the water. TO DO THIS: Pour water into a glass bowl or measuring cup and take outside. I do this outside where it’s well ventilated and away from my kids. You will need a collection of stainless steel teaspoons, dessert spoons and serving spoons for stirring and dispensing ingredients. Spatula Carefully tip the sodium hydroxide into the water and stir until there is no gritty feeling at the bottom of the jug. This indicates that all the sodium hydroxide has dissolved.P.S. It is very important not to substitute ingredients like for like when you’re soap making. You absolutely must use a lye calculator to ensure you’re using enough lye and water. Otherwise you may not get soap out of your recipe, or worse you could end up with too much lye and your soaps can burn your skin. Reply Never leave your soap mixture unattended, this is a big no-no, especially if you have children or pets in your home. Superfat can be a difficult idea to understand, especially in the SoapCalc. All it means is the percentage of oils that exceed the amount the lye needs to be completely used up. Any or all of the oils in your SoapCalc recipe can be your superfat.

If you are using the cold-process method, your soap will need to be insulated during the first 24 hours. To do so effectively, cover your soap with layers of blankets or towels.

If you are making your soap at home, be sure to do it in a well-ventilated area. Put on protective eyewear, mask, apron, and long rubber gloves to protect the eyes and skin. Should you get some on your skin rinse with vinegar before washing it off using water.
