Making Whipped Cream Soap (Easy shortcut) from Melt and Pour Base?

by Nook
(Asia)

I was intrigued by a forum post years ago that said oft, fluffy whipped cream soap can actually be created through melt-and-pour bases - just with a combination of oils and water, and whipped with a stick beater when hot until it resembles the thick fluffy consistency of cream.


Sounds like an unbelievable way to do it without the curing process - the soap is ready when cooled!

How true is that? The problem as I understand with MP bases is that they eventually harden into bars (adding more Vit E oil or Olive oil makes it quite oily and unstable) and I want to keep the consistency as thick fluffy cream that acts as a shaving soap too, highly fragranced and yet washes off without the oily feel.

Has anyone tried this "cheat" method before?

Answer:

I'm afraid I haven't any experience with this so I can't help but hopefully someone else will be able to lend some advice.

Goog luck,
Cathy

Whipped Soaps

Stephenson's makes a nice whipped soap base that I've had good success with. I've not tried making whipped soap from regular melt and pour base.

Whipping Base
by: Anonymous

Stephenson's base sounds like the ideal case really. :) Unfortunately, many shops carrying that base don't ship internationally (yes, restricted by shipping policies) and I"m forced to think of another way to go about this, short of going the cold process (and long) way.

cream soap with mp base
by: Anonymous

I have once tried experimenting and managed to create quite a good whipped soap in a jar.
I melted 500g soap base and added warm water slowly to it.I started blending with a hand mixer and adding epsom salts to the mix till it cooled off. I found that adding epsom salts in a high quantity will make the soap not harden. It stayed creamy and liquidy .
Will be trying this again lately so will post update :)

whipped soap
by: nikki

I tried it with the epsom salt and warm water and it works! I make sure to crush the epsom salt into a powder so people can't feel it, and I only add about 2 tbsp of water becuase I want it to lather really well.

Curiously though, what amount of fragrance oil do you add to such a mixture? Would there be any adverse texture problems if too much is added?

Are preservatives necessary for this? Do you also allow the soap to set for an additional 24 hours thereafter?

Measurements
by: Michael

I stumbled onto this web site by doing a Google search as I am looking to make a soft soap shaving cream. I saw the you used 500g of soap base but how much water and epsom salts did you end up using? I would really like to try this.

Thank you.

Another Cream Soap recipe
by: Diane

Hello Everyone

Another cream soap from french blog and I am very satisfied. I make a lot of cream soap in crock pot, really I prefer this one, simple and fast.
I used half the recipe because I hate wasting oils if it does not work.

First, run your soap recipe in SoapCalc to see if your soap has over 14 palmitic below at your right (in view or print recipe) because I tried with bastille soap (12 palmitic) and the water is separated from the foam.You need a soap with a high content of palmitic

100 gr grated soap
150 gr water (hydrosols, aloe ect.)
Melt completely in double boiler,

add 15 gr shea butter – 15 gr glycerine mix well (Optional I add 1% stearic acid 3 gr melted with glycerine)
Cooling and add 10 gr coconut /goat milk powder and 3 gr fragrance +1% presevative and refrigerate to cool completely - whisk until desired consistency

Adding water to mp soap base
by: Cathy

Just remember that if you add water to a melt and pour soap base it will now be a hydrous product which will likely require a preservative to prevent the growth of mould and bacteria.
