-Anti-Bacterial Hand Soap Base
-Mica Powder Colorant (we have several shades to choose from)
-Fragrance Oil (must be skin safe!)
-8oz Clear Bullet Bottles
-8oz White Pump Caps
-Pinch, Dash & Smidgen Measuring Spoons
Step 1) Add 1/2 oz fragrance oil to Soap Base.
*Note: if you add too much fragrance oil to the base, the base will thin out and be more water-like, rather than gel form. Be careful!
Once you add the fragrance and mix well, the base will then appear cloudy. This is caused by tiny bubbles within the base. As you can see, base without fragrance (above) vs. base with fragrance (below). Don't worry, it will turn back to clear once it has settled. :)
Step 2) Measure out base+ fragrance mixture.
If you are planning to make the entire batch just one color, this will save yourself some time. If you are wanting to make a few different colors, there are some things you will want to know.
We have a variety of colors to choose from on our Mica Powder line. A few examples can be seen below. I made a few different colors with this batch. I used exactly (1) "Dash" measurement of Mica Powder for 17oz of base. I used this amount for each color and it worked well.
Using a funnel is super handy! Fill the bottles only to the point where the bottle starts curving up to the neck, like in the example pictured below.
You'll notice that the tubes connected to the pump caps are just a bit too long for a perfect fit onto the 8oz bullet bottles. Cutting 3/4" - 1" off the end of the tube at an angle helps to ensure a perfect fit. Example below of where to cut.
