Making soaps from scratch is a great way to get creative at home while also caring for your skin with all-natural products. Our recipe for Mango Moisture cold process soap is a simple introduction to scented soapmaking, suitable for beginners and easy to make at home. Combining deeply moisturizing olive oil, shea butter, mango butter and coconut oil, Mango Moisture soap nourishes the skin with its rich, creamy lather.

Method for making this soap
1. With your goggles and gloves on, weigh out the lye into one of the two pitchers. Pour the distilled water into the other and gradually add the lye to the water pitcher, stirring until dissolved. Let the mixture rest until it reaches a temperature of between 100 and 125 degrees, which may take several hours.
2. While the mixture heats up, weigh out the olive oil, coconut oil, shea butter and mango butter. Heat the solid products in your pot until they melt and add the olive oil, stirring until they reach a temperature of between 100 and 125 degrees. Both the oils and the lye mixture will need to be the same temperature when incorporated.
3. Measure out the mango fragrance into the small dish and line the mould container with a piece of freezer paper.
4. When the lye mixture and the oils have reached the same temperature, slowly pour the lye and water into the oil, stirring continuously. You may want to use your stick blender at this point to speed up the process.
5. When the mixture begins to ‘trace’, or show tracks, add in the mango fragrance and stir for a further ten to 20 minutes until tracing is fully established.
6. Working swiftly, pour the mixture into the mould and cover with the cardboard lid. Wrap the mould in the blanket or rag and leave for 18 hours before removing the blanket and lid.
7. Leave the soap for another few hours and then remove from the mould. You can either let the soap rest for at least two weeks on an open drying rack or cut to size immediately, taking care to keep a little space between the bars. The longer the soap cures, the firmer and milder it will be.
