Pumpkin Spice Aloe & Shea Soap Recipe

IMG_20170804_094113625

I used fresh aloe vera gel in place of the water and a large amount of shea butter went into this recipe. Since it will be done curing in October I added orange and black colorant and a pumpkin spice scent. On the side I poured several unscented and plain aloe & shea bars as well. The white in this soap will darken a bit as it cures so you will need to use titanium Dioxide to keep white soap white.

 

 

Recipe

7.5 oz Coconut Oil

6 oz Palm Oil

4.5 oz Shea Butter

4.5 oz Olive Oil

3 oz Castor Oil

3 oz Sunflower Oil

1.5 oz Hemp Seed Oil

4.17 oz Sodium Hydroxide

9.90 oz Aloe Vera Gel

(46.53 oz by weight total)

This recipe has a 5% Superfat,  is 33% Aloe Vera Gel. Scented with 1.5 oz Pumpkin Spice Fragrance oil.

Colorants used: Activated Charcoal powder, Racing Stripe Orange Mica, Titanium Dioxide to maintain white color.

I did not add TD and this is the same soap 3 days later after darkening, it would be better with TD in my opinion..
