- Microwave or a suitable heating device
- Silicone mould
- Soap cutter
4 simple steps to get started
Step 1: Cut & Melt
Remove the Syndopour base from the packaging and cut the product into smaller pieces to aid melting.
Melt the product in a microwave or a suitable heating device ensuring that the base melts evenly. Stirring the product regularly helps to do this. Recommended heating temperature should be around 85°C.
When molten, the base clears but will return opaque upon setting.
Step 2: Create & Mix
Once the base is molten, add fragrance, colour and any additives to customise the base.
It is recommended that the level of additives included is up to 3% maximum. This level would include up to 2% fragrances. Stability testing may be required to ensure compatibility.
Step 3: Pour & Set
Spray the silicone mould with rubbing alcohol in order to prevent bubbles on the surface of the base once it is cooled.
Pour the molten product into a mould between 70 – 85°C and allow to set.
Step 4: Remove
Once set, remove from the mould.
The bars will release more easily if it has been left for 24 hours in a cool place. Once hard, package as required. If the finished product is to be sliced, we recommend using a soap wire cutter.
Once unmoulded, the base will continue to harden.
