5 Ways to Add Herbal Powders to Handmade Soap
Herbal powders are natural soap additives that offer several skin-soothing advantages. They are attractive on labels, and some, like Turmeric and Beetroot, even give your soap a gentle hue.
Herbal Powders offered by Soapy Twist have a certified organic range which further enhances your Soap’s label appeal apart from ensuring you and your consumers get certified purity and benefits of these herbal powders.
These herbal powders add moisturizing, deep cleansing, gentle exfoliation, and comforting qualities to your soap.
How to Add Herbal Powders to Your Melt & Pour Soap?
Make sure you add up to 2% Herbal powders to your soap base while making an herbal soap.
- Mix with Glycerin
Make a thick paste by adding Glycerin to your herbal powder drop by drop. Add this paste to your melted soap base and stir till it mixes fully.
- Mix with Fragrance or Essential oil
Mix the herbal powder with a Fragrance oil or Essential oil of your choice and make a homogenous thick paste. Add this paste to your melted soap base and stir till it's infused fully.
- Mix with Water
Add a small amount of water to the herbal powder of your choice and make a thick paste. Mix this paste into the melted soap base till it blends in completely.
- Mix with Carrier Oil
Use up to 0.5% of carrier oil like Neem oil, or Argan Oil to make a thick paste with the herbal powder of your choice, and add this paste to your melted soap base. Stir till it's fully infused.
- Add non-soluble herbs directly to your soap base
To make an exfoliating soap, add herbal powder like coffee granules, walnut powder, or almond flakes directly into the melted soap base and stir till they blend in fully. In most soap bases, these powders tend to settle at the bottom.
However, Soapy Twist offers a unique suspending soap base that ensures that your herbal powders are suspended evenly across your handmade soap.
