Coconut Oil and Kaolin Clay Base
Coconut oil contains an abundance of proteins and fatty acids which nourish and deeply hydrate the skin. Coconut oil is super-cleansing as it removes dirt and the outer layer of dead skin which can clog pores.
When coconut oil soap is used for acne and other skin disorders, it eliminates the micro-organisms that cause the condition. It also helps to lessen the appearance of scars and stops new scars from forming. In cases where the ailments are accompanied by inflammation, the use of coconut oil soap can ease the discomfort of redness and swelling.
Kaolin Clay is gentle on the skin. It assists in removing dirt from pores without being abrasive or dehydrating.

HOW TO USE:
This type of soap is called “Melt and Pour” and the artistry of melt and pour is called “Soap Casting“. Melt and Pour is gaining in popularity because of its ease of use. There are no significant safety measures (other than basic common sense) needed for soap casting. Children can do it and is a great outlet for creative types.
Cut the amount of soap you need into small pieces. Place the soap in a microwavable container and melt the soap until it has melted. Do not let it boil. Add water soluble dye to colour the soap and fragrance the soap by adding your own desired amount of fragrance or essential oil. Stir the dye and fragrance in gently. Pour the soap into the soap mould and tap the mould on the counter to remove any air bubbles. Allow to set. Once set wrap the soap.
Or if you do not wish to use a microwave you can melt the soap in a stainless steel pot and melt the soap over a low heat. You can re melt the soap several times.
Depending on how big your soap mould is will determine how many soaps you will make from 1kg soap.
The soap must be kept wrapped in cellophane or cling-film as it may be prone to “sweating” but in addition to that let your packaging imagination run wild!
