Soap Making Instructional: How to Use Swirlz Soap Base

Cold Process Soapmakers have the luxury of making swirled soap. Denise from Go Planet Earth has been getting alot of requests for a tutorial on how to do this swirl technique in a melt and pour soap version. In the instructions provided, the color used is a blue, but. you can choose any color to your liking. The color combinations are endless. This instructional shows the basics of how to work with the base and get the feel for the right pouring temperature to master the swirling technique. In a future tutorial, Go Planet Earth will show how to use this base to make a swirled loaf soap. So once that is available, I will share that with you.

Now I am not so sure what make this soap base so special to do this technique and not sure why you cannot use any particular melt and pour base. But you can purchase a 2-lb. Swirlz (clear) for $7.80 directly from Go Planet Earth. The ingredinets for the clear soap base are Water, Sorbitol, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Stearate, Glycerin, Sodium Tallowate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Laurate, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Sodium Cocoate, Triethanolamine.
