melt and pour soap

This is a Melt and Pour soap.

They very pretty, colorful and fun to craft. 

It is a simple process. In a sense, the soap itself is already made. You are simply buying the base soap , melting it down and then remolding into another shape. During the meltdown process, you can add other ingredients such as colors, micas, fragrances, exfoliants, etc.The process is much more instantaneous than the Cold process, traditional method. The soap is ready right away after being made and packed in cling film.

The drawback is that the crafter does'nt  have full control of what ingredients went into the MP soap because you are essentially purchasing already made soap base. Most of these bases are made with Propylene Glycol, Sorbitol, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Palmitate, Sodium Myristate, Sodium Starate, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Glycerine, Triethanolamine, Sodium Laurate. It's similar to buying a mass produced , commercial soap. It's only natural to the extent of the additives used. *

cold process soap        
This is a Cold process soap, most often in natural hues.
Remember, not all colors are available in a natural option. They are mostly in shades of cream, beige, pink, browns, etc. 

Cold process soaps are soaps that are made using a specific method called "cold process" which is traditional soap making technique. Here the soap is made from scratch using oils, botanicals, essential oils etc. The soap is ready for use only after 4-6 months of  curing to get a mild soap.

Cold process soaping allows the maker to add whatever ingredients she chooses to make a great bar of soap.You have full control over what goes into your soap product.

At Skinsense- Natural Luxury, we make our soaps using this cold process method only. We cure our soaps for upto 8 weeks to give you that mildness and softness that our soaps are known for.

We tend to keep most of our soap bars simple. That is just our choice and what we stand for -  Simplicity and Purity.
