Clean and sanitize your workstation and all of your utensils. It is suggested that you wear gloves, an apron, a face mask, and a hair net while preparing this recipe.
Step 1: Begin by preparing the dry ingredients. Optional use of a sifter to remove clumps when adding ingredients. In a large mixing bowl, add your baking soda, sodium cocoyl isethionate, cream of tartar, and cornstarch. Mix well. As you are mixing, use your hands to break up any clumps.
Step 2: In a second bowl, weigh out and mix the wet ingredients. Blend the vegetable glycerin, fractionated coconut oil, and Aruba Shores Fragrance Oil.
Step 3: Add your wet ingredients to the bowl containing the dry ingredients. Use your hands to mix the ingredients together. Keep mixing until you have a dough-like consistency. Note: If your dough is too crumbly, you can add a bit more vegetable glycerin. However, be careful not to add too much or your dough will become too wet and will not set up properly.
Step 4: At this time, you will need to separate and color the bubble bar dough. You will be dividing it into three portions. To one bowl, add 194 grams of the bubble bar dough. Set aside, this will remain white. To the second bowl, add 454 grams of the bubble bar dough and 8 drops of the ultramarine blue FUN Soap Colorant. Mix using your hands. To the third bowl, add 454 grams of the bubble bar dough and 8 drops of teal and 2 drops of the ultramarine blue. Again, mix until the colorant is well blended.
Step 5: Now, you will need 2 of the basic circle molds in front of you. Fill the mold with the bubble bar dough. Use various colors. We began filling ours on the outer edges, creating a pattern that resembles a wave. Note: Since the dough may expand slightly due to humidity, do not overfill.
Step 6: Now, simply let your bubble bars set up, completely hardening. It took our bubble bars approximately 48-72 hours to set up completely. However, it can take longer depending on the climate of your environment. Then, remove the bubble bars from the molds. Place them on parchment paper or a silicone mat and allow them to continue to harden.
Your Aruba Shores Bubble Bars are now ready to use! To use your bubble bars crumble one of the bubble bar under running warm bath water.
