Rub a dub dub! I recently did a post on mermaid gifts and came across mermaid soap. Beautiful colors and creative ways to accent your mermaid bathroom! If you are interested in buying or making your own soap, you should know a few things. First of all, not all soap is made the same way! Below you will learn about cold and hot pressed soap, what makes translucent soap, and new product called whipped soap, and links for if you want to make your own mermaid soap.
I hope this help!
Cold and Hot pressed mermaid soap
If you see handmade cold or hot pressed soap that just explains what the process was in making the soap. What’s the different? Adding heat will help the end product feel softer to the touch. Cold press will have a rougher feel but still have the same cleaning and moisturizing effects. You can tell hot or cold pressed from the white or opaque look to them.
Transparent mermaid soap
Transparent soap is a hot process soap added with sugar, glycerin and alcohol to dissolve the soap crystals. This allows light to pass through and give the soap transparency. You can find transparent soap with toys, seashells , and my favorite sparkly glitter.
mermaid whipped soap
Have you heard of whipped soap before? It’s more of a body butter than an actual soap. It is loaded with oils like coconut and palm to soften and moisture the skin. It can also be used as shaving cream, hair conditioner, and even face cream! Does it look like frosting to anyone else?
Mermaid soap mold
Molded soaps are beautiful and elegant in detail. Almost feels like mermaid art! You can find them for just tails, or ocean life like seashells and starfish! If you think this look, keep reading to learn how to make your own soaps!
DIY Mermaid soap
If you are interested in making your own soap, there are some soaps that are “ready made” which you just melt down an put into molds. Just buy the soap, melt into the mold and there you have it! Mermaid gifts for everyone!
Doesn’t seem that hard and might be fun to try!
Best of luck on all your crafting activities!
