Handcrafted soaps perfect for emulsifying solid lanolin.
Add a small chunk to your lano-ing mug as your emulsifying agent and go. More detail below.
Note that the scented bars may have some variation in color due to the addition of scented oil/s. In particular, those with vanillin/vanilla tend to darken with time but this will not stain or harm your woolies.
All-Natural FO Scents (AN) are entirely derived from natural sources and contain no synthetic components. Phthalate free.
Novelty Rainbow Bars are safe for use as bath/body bars. Don't be afraid to treat yourself to one of these wonderful handcrafted soaps. In some cases, a milder scent level compared to the standard emulsifying bars in order to make bath safe. Still completely effective as a lanonlin emulsifying soap.
Standard Emulsifying Soap Bars contain a higher concentration of FO/EO in the scented versions. They will impart a scent on your woolies but we do not recommend them for personal/bath-time use. The Rainbow bars are OK for bathtime use for you and baby.
SOAP SAMPLE PACK includes a mix of six unique scents so you can try a few rather than settling for one. These have higher scent levels and are not recommended for direct body use but they're perfect for emulsifying your solid lanolin.
Instructions for Emulsifying:
BASIC TUTORIAL W/ PHOTOS
Prepare a mug of hot water; generally, 4-6 fluid ounces is more than enough water. Hot tap water often works better than super hot boiling water because the lanolin emulsion can "break" if the water is too hot.
Add solid lanolin and allow to melt (~ 1 teaspoon per garment is a good starting point).
While lanolin is melting add a small chunk of lanolin soap and allow to melt too (for those that are exacting you can use about ~5-8 g of lanolin emulsifying soap per teaspoon of solid lanolin for great results when emulsified in a mug with 4-6 fluid oz of water which is 1/2-3/4 C.). Scented soap often requires a bit more compared to unscented soap because of the added oils and hard water often requires a bit more soap on average.
After a minute or two, when everything is completely melted, begin stirring.
Stir semi-vigorously for about a minute. A back and forth motion creates more turbulence and is more efficient than a circular stirring motion. The solution will become milky and frothy. Add to your tepid water bath.
Stir to distribute and add your woolies.
Let soak in the lanolin solution for 30 mins to overnight.
Rinse in warm tepid water if you desire to remove residual soap. Remove excess water by gently squeezing and then pressing in a towel or spinning in your machine. Lay flat to air dry.
