~Colorants for COLD PROCESSED soap~

11 Oct

Hi everyone!  Hope your day is going well:)

COLORS!!!

Yes, I’m going to try and talk about colors a bit.

Colors

Who doesn’t LOVE colors?

Not me,

 I “LOVE” colors and I love colors that really Pop!

Most of the time I use  manufactured colors.

But, I have been trying to work with natural colors more.

For this Blog post I’ll be sticking to the manufactured colors though.

MICA”S:  (powdered) Natural minerals (quartz-like) that have a sparkle to them.  Colored mica’s usually have  been coated with  FDA approved dyes or pigments . They come in a wide variety of colors. Be careful when using them. You don’t want to use too much or your bubbles can be very colorful too…. You need very little to color your soap. 1/4 to 1 tsp per pound of soap. Depending on what your desired outcome is.

**I mix mica’s w/ a little bit of avocado or sweet almond oil**

OXIDES & ULTRAMARINE’S:  These are Pigments. Although, there are natural pigments from the earth (such as iron) the kind used in soap making are Man made and FDA approved. Here’s a list of  ingredients that may be in them: koalin, sodium carbonate, sulfur, silica, carbon & resin

**1 tsp per pound of soap** You can use more depending on your intended results

****Updates here’s some of the Cold Process soaps I’ve made recently……

6 Aug

I can’t begin to tell you have busy I’ve been.  Because for me I’ve been busy. But I’m sure no-one wants to hear that. So, here’s some of the things I’ve been doing….

The first has to do with charity! I have made the decision and arrangements that 2% of ALL of my sales will go towards food for the Boonton Food Pantry! I’m so excited to be a part of putting food on the table of people in need. I would hope that if I needed the Food Pantry that someone would be donating food to help my family.

It’s ALL Good!!!!!!

Okay, now that I’ve got that out of my brain. Here are a few pics of some of the soaps I’ve made in the past few weeks. They’ll be ready in 4 to 6 weeks…..I’ll keep you posted:)

If you’re LOOKING for a CP Soap Recipe…..Hopefully, tomorrow I’ll be posting one so stay tuned!

Hello Everyone!

I was going to post some pictures of my newly created soaps. Unfortunately, I’m having trouble taking those pics because of the light. It’s somewhat cloudy here today in New Jersey. Every time I try and take a picture it comes out looking awful…..So, I decided to list a new item in my shop instead…..**Fresh Ginger Lime**

It Tuseday! Time for updates…..

3 Jul

Hi!

I’ve been so busy these days it’s overwhelming. But, I’m loving it!  Can you believe the 4th of July is here!

Whew! Feels like a Sale…when you spend $10.00 or more at www.psilovesoapco.com you’ll receive $1.50 off your purchase of $10. or more.

Enter Coupon CODE : july2102     HURRY ends July 6,2102.

 

—Okay, now that I’ve let you know about the sale time let me give you the updates. The Farmers Market has been a lot of FUN! Lots of Great people.

I’m learning that customers over the computer like different things than customers at the market! I’m fascinated by it! Maybe it has to do with location? I don’t know but I do know they like different things! Which is not bad it’s just different.

—-I’ve also been trying out different recipes for Shampoo bars. The problem I always have with shampoo bars is that they make your hair feel as if there is a coating over each strand..IK! I’m not into that. I like a Clean feeling product!

Yesterday was a Shampoo Bar trial day! I was  having no luck with my own recipes so I found one here. It was a good recipe! I have a lot of tweaking to do. We’ll see. I’m thinking of adding avocado oil or silk to it to see if that helps……….

I’m hoping to do that soon…….I’ll let you see my updates!

—Here are some pics of some new soaps on the drying racks as I type:)

I think this is a Great Day to talk about Sea Salt in soap……

26 Jun

Hello,

Hope everyone is having a Fine week. Mine going fairly well…….No complaints…thank God!

I thought today would be a Great day to talk about Sea Salt in Soap………..Why? because One of the frequently asked questions I get at the Farmers Market is why Salt Bars?

The first few times I gave  “duh” kind of answer and then I realized that wasn’t the answer I should be giving. The answer I should be giving is this:

1) Sea salt contains minerals such as magnesium, zinc, calcium, potassium and iodine which are nourishing to your skin.

2) The salts exfoliate your skin. Which leaves  your skin soft and moisturized.

3) Salts can detoxify your skin.

4) Salts can relax muscles.

*****Dead Sea Salt  is  however different since the Dead Sea has a higher concentration of Salt****

Did you know The Dead Sea is the lowest place on Earth? Yep…It is! AND the evaporation rate is higher than the water that flows into it.

It’s called the Dead Sea because no life can live it…..No plants, fish, sharks nothing! But, it’s great for people with Skin problems such as eczema.

I like using all kinds of Salts! Here’s what I have listed in My Shop:  Salt Soaps….

 

Now, onto other things: I’ve started a Soap of the Month Club. It’s a way to sample some of the different kinds of soaps I make. I have a 3, 6 & 12 month club…….

Soap of the Month Club!

 

Here’s the soap I was making yesterday..Didn’t come quite like I wanted but it’s acceptable:)
