How to make mango soap will be just as easy as any other 1 scent, 1 color, soap, except this time a little superfatting is needed. It doesn’t really need to be superfatted, but adding a little mango butter at trace will increase the moisturizing properties, but more importantly, it will also increase the selling features. This soap below has the perfect mango color, I used to color mine like this.
I’ve used mango and papaya fragrance oil scent blend lots, especially for the ever popular Life’s A Beach soap. Decided to try the Mango scent by itself, with a little mango butter, and my notes state “a pretty good seller!”. (yes, I write on my soap recipes pages, just like a chef, lol, but it becomes a really good reference later). Also, there is no essential oil for this scent, so you’ll have to use a fragrance oil.
Make Mango soap recipe:
- Using the basic #1 recipe:
51.2 oz Olive oil or an Olive/Canola blend
6.2 oz coconut oil
6.2 oz Palm oil
23.4 oz water
8.6 oz lye crystals
for this scented bar, add:
7 oz mango fragrance oil (I used Mango Madness)
- 1 oz mango butter
- 1.5 tsp of yellow oxide for the mango color
The soap below is actually a mango and papaya, and the 2 tones of the soap are representing the 2 scents, a very good idea!
This following soap is actually a glycerin or melt & pour type soap, but you can see how pretty this color is. The labeling is nice too, just simple with a sticky label:
Another great example how a solid mango-colored soap and nice sticky label can make such a beautiful bar:
Here is the link to The Body Shop’s Mango soap page, go to FAQ’s and read those ingredients! You’ll see that this company uses a little seed oil and fragrance oil too – it’s not natural.
