Desigual

Dear all,

The challenge for this month has been as usual, a very challenging one. I never imagined that with curls we could get such beautiful soaps.

The soap I am showing you is made with cold process and it is called DESIGUAL Do you know what Desigual is? Desigual is a very well known clothes designer from Barcelona, my home town.

I love how this turned. I used the following mica colours by Nurture soap:

  • enchantment green, 
  • really red mica, S
  • ky blue mica 
  • and rise and shine yellow mica.
  • white colour I used Icicle by UMU and some white mica by Brambleberry.

Fragrance oil: Babilicious by Gracefruit
Recipe:

  • 40% Olive oil
  • 30% coconut oil
  • 25% Shea butter
  • 5% castor oil
  • superfat: 7%
  • Lye concentration:33%



Below, you will see some pictures of the curls I made:

I also tried this same soap with a transparent background. For this, made transparent soap in CP following Harriet Preztch´s procedure:

Amanda Aaron from Lovin Soap has also tried this process with different oils. I have taken one of her recipes on her blog (batch No. 5). 

The resulting soap is this one:

I made the exact quantity for a total soap of 500g. 
Stearic Acid: 30g
coconut oil: 70g
Water: 34 g
NAOH: 17g
200g Glyerine
100g Everclear
100g (instead of 200g) of sorbytol solution (70g sorbytoll and 30g water)

First of all, I prepared everything. See below:
Secondly, I melted the oils (Stearic acid and coconut oil) and poured the lye through a strainer.

Immediately after, I poured the glycerine and everclear and blended until it was clear with the stir blender. Finally, I added the sorbytol solution and it was ready. See below the video how I am pouring the transparent sopa in the dividor.



I hope you all like this short description of the procedure for transparent soap. 

Here you are other attemps I made with CP & TS for this challenge:




Wishing you all of the best of luck in the challenge this month.
