Glycerin is a natural by-product of the soapmaking process that softens your skin by attracting moisture. It is very gentle so it is safe to use on sensitive skin.


3. Add fragrance ($15.94) and soap color ($4.98) to the melted glycerin. In order to create a gradient, add different amounts of soap color to each bowl and leave one clear.

6. When the glycerin is firm, remove from the cup by wiggling the plastic cup and pressing gently on the bottom.


7. Carefully cut the glycerin into quarters and scrape the sides to form the pieces into crystals.
