Soaps that are light, fluffy and airy have been gaining popularity recently due to their beautiful texture and moisturizing ingredients. Unlike traditional bar soap, which can be drying to skin, whipped soap contains low PH and is usually scented with natural fragrances and essential oils that leave the skin feeling soft and supple.
It is also a great choice for those with sensitive skin, as it does not contain harsh detergents that can irritate the skin. Whipped soap can be used as a body wash, hand soap and even shaving cream. It can also be adapted to make sugar scrubs, bath butters or a moisturising face wash for those with acne-prone skin.
This recipe makes around 4 to 6 jars of whipped soap that will be perfect for gifts. To use, simply wet your hands or a clean spoon and scoop some soap from the container, then rub gently over your skin until a rich lather is created. It works best when applied to damp skin, as this helps it spread more easily and evenly.
Once you have a smooth batter, add in your fragrance and colour, whisk well again and then pour into a suitable soap container for storage. This whipped soap recipe does not need curing, so it can be used as soon as you’re ready to start using it. Ensure the soap is stored in a cool, dry place to keep it fresh and long-lasting. A shelf life of about 1 year is expected if it is made correctly and kept in a clean environment. Whipped Soap
