Pumice & Walnut Shea Butter Melt and Pour Exfoliating Soap 

I love the sharp contrast between the purple and white layers, the purple contains the scrubbies, and the smooth, white Shea Butter soap layer is moisturising and it smells delicious!  You can double the ingredients and use a larger loaf mould if you are going to be sharing your soap around!

You need the following to make 500g (4 bars):

**If you prefer a green fresh more garden scent, we recommend Lush Succulent Fragrance

This amount of soap makes 18 - 20 bars (4 batches) of soap - you can use our Medium Silicone Loaf or Regular Silicone Loaf Moulds if you prefer to make larger batch/es.


  • If you are going to make a diagonal layer, prop the mould between two heavy objects and check the mould is level (ie two blocks of melt and pour, phone books, bricks etc).  The silicone mould doesn't slip which makes this easy to do!

  • Dice the clear soap into 1 cm cubes and melt in the microwave on medium low until liquid - avoid overheating, around 65°C is ideal.
  • Remove from microwave and add the ground walnut shell and mix well to ensure there are no lumps or dry pockets.

  • Colour this quite a dark tone with Royal Purple Liquid - the walnut will go grey in the soap, so a rich, deep colour is useful to avoid it looking muddy.
  • Add half the Passionfruit Papaya fragrance and stir well to combine.
  • Spray with alcohol to remove any small bubbles on the surface of the jug.
  • When the temperature is around 55°C or just below pour into the mould - this will ensure the particles stay suspended.  If you pour too hot they will sink!

  • Whilst this is setting up dice the shea butter soap into 1 cm cubes and melt in the microwave on medium low until liquid - avoid overheating.
  • When melted add the rest of the fragrance and stir well.
  • Check that the purple soap has firmed up enough to support the overpour of white soap.
  • Spray with isopropyl alcohol and then carefully pour the shea butter soap into the mould over the back of a spoon to avoid breaking the surface with the hot soap.
  • Spray with isopropyl alcohol again and allow to set.

  • When you slice the soap, have the purple side on the bottom and this will avoid drag marks from the walnut granules coming through the white layer.
