The earthy scent and healing properties of frankincense make this resin a beneficial additive to handmade bar soap products. Anti-aging handmade soaps are gentle on the skin and will support a self-care regimen that is geared toward maintaining supple skin and reversing the signs of aging or physical imperfections.
Cold process and hot process soap production requires oils and lye to be combined together. Milk, fruit juice, or tea is occasionally added to bars of soap. A beverage product that is added to an artisan product may improve moisture properties, textures, or colors of soaps. An immersion process is used to produce cold process soaps. Saponification is conducted at room temperature. Cold process soaps need to be cured and this can take several weeks.
Hot process soaps consist of heating up the oils and lye. Once a soap mixture has turned into a gel form, resins and other ingredients can be added to the mixture. The mixture is poured into a mold and will eventually harden. Hot process soap products may only require a couple days to cure.
Frankincense can be used in either type of soap production. Hardened gum resins that are obtained from Boswellia trees are transformed into oil. The benefits that frankincense oil is noted for will be equally evident in both cold and hot soap production processes.
