The two layers are prepared in a Berzelius glass.
Melt the white soap base, cut into cubes of about 1 cm, with the cocoa butter in a water bath. The composition remains in the water bath and the coconut flakes and coconut flavouring extract are added to the melted liquid. Mix well and pour into the mould halfway through. Leave to cool and solidify.
Melt the transparent soap base cut into cubes. Add cocoa powder and tonka absolute, mix well until smooth and remove from water bath. Pour over the first layer
Leave the soap to harden for four hours. Then carefully remove and leave to dry for 24 hours. Store in a dry place.
If the environment in which the soap is stored has higher humidity, dew and a gelatinous layer may appear on the surface. This is a normal phenomenon for natural melt & pour soaps.
To avoid this phenomenon, it is advisable to wrap the soap in food wrap or store it in an airtight container.
