Lemon poppy seeds soap

Speaking of skin-friendly M&P bases, for this and all the following projects I have chosen an SLS and SLES-free Stephensons 'Crystal' soap base.

It doesn't contain surfactants or mono propylene glycol, parabens, phenoxyethanol, sulfates, PEG and Propylene glycol.

Made from 100% natural ingredients. Vegetable based.
It has a good moisturising power because of glycerine.
Products are from The Soap Kitchen.

I have 'personalized' the soap base with a superb lemon fragrance, yellow liquid colour, titanium dioxide for the white layer, and  poppy seeds for a gentle and natural scrub
The top layer is sprinkled with dried marigold petals.

Since I run out of castor oil, I had to modify the recipe shown in video 1) as follows  ­čśů
Recipe (slow moving trace):
Olive oil (pomace) 70% Coconut oil 22.25% Palm oil (organic) 7.75%
Note that the palm oil I buy from The Soap Kitchen 'carries Organic Certification and comes from Columbia. It is not produced on land that has been taken from the Rain Forests, nor are there any Orangutangs made homeless. Our suppliers do use 'ethical' methods in their production (we have actually visited the site). Our Columbian suppliers are members of the RSPO (Round Table for Sustainable Production ofPalmOil).'
