A mildly exfoliating soap with natural berry fragrance as an option if you would like to use it.

Ingredients:

  • 500gm Melt and pour goats milk soap base
  • 2 tbs Buttermilk powder
  • 2 tsp Filtered water
  • 2 tsp Aloe vera gel
  • 1 tbs Mango butter
  • 2 tbs pureed Raspberries blended using approx 2 tsp filtered water
  • Rubine liquid soap colour – approx ½ to 1 tsp

NOTE: I didn’t add any fragrance, preferring this soap to be naturally scented (smells mildly like a berry milkshake!). You can add ½ to 1 tsp raspberry or other berry/fruit fragrance to suit your taste if desired.

Directions:

  1. Mix the buttermilk powder with water and aloe vera gel - stir till well combined and lump free.
  2. Melt soap base gently.
  3. Add mango butter and stir in until melted – reheating gently as required.
  4. Add milk powder blend and whisk to incorporate well.
  5. Add pureed raspberries*(see note below) and colouring. whisk well again.
  6. Stir gently with a spoon until slightly cooled and thickened to suspend berry seeds evenly through soap.
  7. Pour into moulds.

(*if using frozen berries for puree mix could become lumpy as it makes the soap too cold. Thaw before use)
