This is a wonderfully smooth, creamy soap with a butter-like consistency, that lathers beautifully, and can still have all your favourite colours, fragrances and exfoliants added to it. Use for Sugar Scrubs, Salt Scrubs, Body Parfaits, as a Shaving Cream Soap; it's great when used with exfoliating Botanical Scrubs and Clays. This soap adds a whole new dimension to your soapy creativity.
"FBB" can be processed at room temperature, or warmed to soften and whip. We find it best to soften it slightly in winter, but in summer it is usally okay to begin whipping "as is" at room remperature.

This soap base is scoopable, soft and buttery, and is not suitable for use with a mould.
Fragrance Load: 1 - 2%
Additives: this will vary widely, we like 20 -40g light botanical scrubs to 500g, up to 60g of heavier particle (like pumice). Adjust to suit.
pH: 5.5 (which is quite low and makes it a very mild cleanser)
Quick "HOW TO":
Foamy Bath Butter is a great "play with" soap base.
To Cold Process: Place FBB in generous mixing bowl with a hand or stand mixer with a balloon whisk attachment. If it's cool weather, squish the butter down a little and begin beating on low. Once the FBB has started to whip into a smoother texture you can turn the speed up to high. Once it has increased in volume and is lighter and fluffy looking, add in any liquid, ecfoliants and fragrance/essential oils you prefer. Spoon or pipe into suitable containers.
Hot Processing: Melt the FBB until it has softened to margarine consistency and then beat as above. If you melt until completely liquid it will take a while to get it to whip nicely and fluff up. That said, don't walk away with it left on beating or it will over-aerate and collapse in a week or so like a soufflé after a dinner party!
