How to Process Stephenson Syndopour 200-MB

Equipment Required

  • Stephenson Syndopour 200-MB base
  • Microwave or a suitable heating device
  • Silicone mould
  • Stirrer
  • Thermometer
  • 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.
