It's essential to grasp the basics and learn a few tips on handling this versatile whipped soap base to ensure your DIY project turns out perfectly.

DIY Whipped Soap Base Recipe

Supplies and Equipment Needed
  • Microwave-safe glass containers
  • Scale
  • Butter knife or large spoon (for cutting up the Foaming Bath Butter)
  • Rubber gloves
  • Rubber or silicone spatula
  • Mixer (stand mixer with a flat beater and a stainless steel whip beater, or a hand mixer with two stainless steel beaters)
  • Stainless steel or glass bowl
  • Thermometer (to monitor oil temperature)
  • Low Profile Frosted 2.9 oz Jars with Lids

Whipped Shaving Soap Recipe

Step 1: Measure your oils and butters. Use your scale to accurately weigh 2 ounces of Avocado Oil, 1 ounce of Castor Oil, and 1 ounce of Unrefined Shea Butter.

Step 2: Cut the Foaming Bath Butter base into small pieces for easier whipping and place it in your mixing bowl.

Step 3: Start by slowly beating the base using a flat beater to avoid clumping.

Step 4: Heat the Avocado and Castor oils in the microwave to about 120° F before blending them into your Foaming Bath Butter to soften the base without overheating.

Step 5: Melt the Unrefined Shea Butter in the microwave and ensure it is no warmer than 120 degrees when added to the mixture.

Step 6: Optional: Mix 2 tsp of Bentonite Clay into your Foaming Bath Butter to enhance the soap's properties.

Step 7: Incorporate the Barbershop 1920’s Fragrance Oil into the base. This adds a rich aroma of amber, rum, and musk that appeals to men and women.

Step 8: Switch to a whip beater and whip the base on low, gradually increasing to high speed until the mixture is fluffy and has doubled in volume.

Step 9: Spoon the whipped shaving soap into jars, smoothing off the tops and cleaning the rims.

Step 10: Allow the jars to set for 24 hours before use for a perfect close shave.

Tips for Using Whipped Soap

  1. Temperature Control: Always monitor the temperature of your oils and butter. Overheating can alter the properties of the preservatives in the Foaming Bath Butter.
  2. Mixing Techniques: To prevent air pockets and ensure a smooth consistency, frequently stop to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl.
  3. Storage: Store the whipped shaving soap in a cool, dry place to maintain its quality and lifespan.
Enjoy crafting this luxurious whipped shaving soap, which promises a delightful shaving experience!
