Create your soap by choosing a base that fits the type of soap you want to make. You can select shea butter, cocoa butter, mango butter, kokum butter, and others. These soap bases can be scented by adding your own mix of oils to add to your soap. Here are a few oils that you can add to your soap base:
- Avocado Oil
- Castor Oil
- Grapeseed Oil
- Mineral Oil
- Neem Oil
- Sweet Almond Oil
- Vitamin E Oil
You can personalize each bar by picking and choosing different oils to use. Each one can benefit different skin types and offer moisturizing and cleansing benefits.
You can add a personal touch to your soap by choosing a mold that fits your personality. Look for different shapes and sizes of soap molds to create unique designs. Consider selecting a soap mold that matches your business logo or favorite styles for personal use. Here are a few different designs that you can choose from in the soap making supplies section of our online store:
- Bee Soap Mold: Picture a bee in the center of the mold surrounded by a border.
- Cubisms Soap Mold: Four different molds with four different abstract designs.
- Flower Soap Mold: Five varieties of varying flower designs.
- Goose Soap Mold: Pictures a standing goose.
- Snowflake Soap Mold: Three unique designs of snowflakes.
- Bamboo Soap Mold: Picture a bamboo tree and its leaves.
We also offer simple rectangle, loaf, circles, and cube designs for you to choose from, as well as our more detailed designs. You can make each of these even more special by adding fragrances and colors to match the mold.
Choose your favorite fragrance or create your own custom fragrance to personalize your soap. You can choose scents to melt and pour or use hot and cold processing. Here are a few fragrances that you can choose from to create your own soap fragrance:
- Bay Rum
- Coconut Lime Verbena
- Lavender Vanilla
- Lemon Creme
Consider the fragrance of your soap when you choose other factors like mold and soap base. Some soap base oils blend well with fragrance oils, while others may not. Be sure to research which oils best blend with the fragrances you want to use.
Soap Colors and Other Additives
Consider adding a natural mica color or our premade soap color bars to personalize your soap further. You can add one or many different color pigment powders to add a personal touch. Find solid colors or add a shimmer color soap block to add some shine. Other additives include lemon grass, olive leaf, lemon peel, cornsilk, and more. These additives can be used to enhance the fragrance oil you’ve chosen.
Dried Botanicals and Seeds
Dried botanicals can add a personal touch to your soap and add aesthetic appeal. Here are a few dried botanicals you can add to your soap base:
- Lavender Flower
- Rose Buds or Petals
- Peppermint Leaves
- Black Walnut Hull
Consider choosing a botanical that matches or complements your fragrance. Add lavender flowers to your lavender vanilla fragrance soap or black walnut hull to a bay rum fragrant soap.
You can also add dried seeds to your soap base to create exfoliating soap. Choose from chia seeds, milk thistle seeds, sesame seeds, fennel seeds, and others. They each have other benefits that can add an extra touch to your soap.
Packaging and Labels
Personalize your soap by choosing packing and labels that fit your aesthetic and business preferences. You can shrink-wrap flat bags to cover your soap but still show the designs and colors. Burlap sacks can add to an all-natural soap aesthetic. Soap boxes with either a rectangle or curricular window can keep your soap safe while showing a peek of the color and style. Organza bags come in different sizes and colors for you to choose from. You can also choose classic white boxes to store your soap in. Add your brand name, the custom soap name, ingredients, and other relevant information to the labels you include with the packing.
