Product Description

Macadamia Kukui Sulfate Free M&P Soap

Macadamia Nut Oil is the richest botanical source of Palmitoleic Acid, giving it the ability to replenish the skin's naturally occurring lipids which deplete with age. Reputed to be the best carrier oil available, Macadamia Nut Oil's versatile qualities make it ideal for use in skin care, age management, mother and baby care, aromatherapy, and massage formulations.

Cosmetic grade Macadamia Nut Oil is odorless, colorless, and meets the stringent standards of the international cosmetic industry allowing it to be used in a large range of natural skin care formulations.

We do not add color to our Macadamia Kukui Soap Base, but that doesn't mean exfoliants and additives cannot be incorporated to create soaps with different textures and properties. The possibilities are endless!

This fine oil comes from the pressed nuts of the Macadamia tree. It is a priceless delight for the skin and has proven itself to be one of the best regenerative oils available. It is high in monounsaturated fatty acids and closely resembles sebum (the oil naturally produced by our skin to help protect it).

Macadamia oil is a fabulous protective oil with a high absorption rate. Pressed from the seeds of the Aleurites moluccana tree, Kukui Nut Oil is invaluable for many different skin conditions because it provides moisture and nourishment to dry, mature, and damaged skin. Kukui Nut Oil is able to penetrate the skin while creating a protective shield that locks in moisture, leaving a silky-smooth non-greasy feeling.

Kukui Nut Oil contains Vitamins A, C, and E, providing anti-oxidants that aid in protecting the skin. For this reason Kukui Nut oil is great for those with sensitive skin and is a wonderful ingredient to add to a soap base without herbicides or pesticides. Contains no Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs).

Creativity is the key to outstanding Glycerin Soaps. Soap molds can be used to make loaves of soap which are then cut once the soap cools.

Learn to Use

Start by melting the Soap Base in a double boiler, a microwave oven will also work.

DO NOT allow the Soap to boil.

Once the soap is in liquid form, add your Fragrance or Essentials Oils. Usually no more than one (1) tsp per Lb of Soap Base is all you need. Do not add scent until the soap has cooled below the fragrance's flash point. Other additives may be incorporated at this stage.

Pour into your mold and let rest until solid, silicone molds work best for most applications, wood block molds are great for bulk quantities. Once soap has fully cooled, un-mold and wrap, your soaps are now ready!.
