Another application is by cold whipping the Foaming Bath Butter
In this example we start with the basic procedure– and then additives can be added such as sugar and/or salt to produce products such as sugar scrubs, salt scrubs, body parfaits, shaving butters.
- Spatula/ knife to cut up the Foaming Bath Butter
- Rubber gloves
- Mixer; preferrably a stand mixer with a flat beater
- a Stainless teel whip beater
- Stainless steel vessel
- Vegetable Oil/wax
- Low Profile Jars with wide mounth and Lids
- Thermometer (to monitor oil temperature)
- Foaming Bath Butter Base
- Soap colorants
- Fragrance Oil
Take of Foaming Bath Butter base and place required amount in the mixing bowl. Cut up the base, the smaller pieces make it easier to begin the whipping process.
Begin slowly beating the Foaming Bath Butter base using a Flat Beater - this helps to prevent clump-ing up of the base inside the wire whip beaters when you get ready to whip the base.
Use a Carrier oil or butter if you want to make it more moisturizing. You can use up to 50 gram of oil or butter to 1 kilo of foaming bath butter base. .
Heat up the Vegetable Oil to about 50 deg C degrees. This helps in softening up the base without making it too hot and helps with the whipping. DO NOT overheat the Foaming Bath Butter Base. If you increase the base temperature over 60 deg C it will cause a break down in its preservative properties.
Add the warm oil to the Foaming Bath Butter.
Add your Fragrance Oil. The recommended level is 2 - 3%. this means that for a 1 kilo base add 30ml (ie 3%) fragrance oil. This base will accept a maximum fragrance load of up to 5% (not higher).
Once you have progressed to a smooth mix and if working with a stand mixer, switch over to a whip beater.
Begin whipping the base on low speed and as it becomes smoother gradually increase to high (about 30 seconds). At the 2-minute mark, stop the mixer and scrape down the sides of the bowl (with arubber spatula) and continue to whip on high for a total of 5-10 minutes. You will notice that it begins to increase in volume.
Continue whipping and stop when the base doubles in volume. If you whip it to higher volumes such as 3 or 4 times its volume, the Foaming Bath Butter will collapse.
Take the whipped Foaming Bath Butter and slowly add the sugar. Begin by adding 500-750g of sugar/kg mix and slowly folding the sugar into your whipped base.
It's important that the mix becomes oversaturated /supersaturated to prevent dissolving the sugar/salt to maintain a crystaline structure.
Dispense the scrub into jars (Tip: use pastry bag or the like (e.g. ZipLoc bag)
Allow the product to set in the final packaging for 24 hours before use.
It is highly beneficial and suggested to add a little additional preservativeto the Foaming Bath Butter Base before whipping. (follow instructions according to the preservative of your choice).
