New! Cinderlyssa Soap Option

A quick explanation of the product is you can use the same Cinderlyssa silicone mold you have for aroma freshies but for soap you use our waterproof vinyl paper, just insert the paper all the way to the bottom of the mold and pour your melted soap in. Pop it out once cooled and you have a colorful image attached to the front of the bar of soap.

We think the colorful image will help draw attention to your soap product versus other soaps that sometimes have label designs that aren't eye catching. While testing out the product, children really seemed to like the soap because they could pull the picture off and stick it to the wall of the tub or shower. 

Can I use my mold for both freshies and soap now?
Yes, now you can use your Cinderlyssa silicone molds with two types of paper, either cardstock to be used with aroma freshies or the waterproof vinyl paper to be used with soap.

There are a 5 molds we sell that will not work for soap: The single book, the heart with edge, the drip can, the rounds with .25 edge, and the beveled edge squares/rectangles.

Is the ink you use non-toxic?
Yes, it is non-toxic water based inkjet ink, it's also the same ink we use with our cardstock images. The image is mainly there for marketing purposes, it's not necessarily intended to stay on the soap when it is used.

How many ounces of soap will a mold hold?
When filling up about 1/2 to 3/4 full our regular size molds tend to produce bars of soap around 4 oz or less. Our molds were not originally made for soap so some can be big, we have mold sizes in the product description, if you are unsure ask us or check our Facebook group.

Will you make smaller molds?
We may start to make some molds about 3 inches in size depending on demand for it, though images will probably be exclusive to that size. We do plan to add more 2 inch vent clip size molds which images always match a larger mold.

Is the waterproof vinyl paper thick and heavy like the cardstock?
No, it's much thinner and lighter so be sure to push the image down completely before pouring your soap in.

I'm new to soap molds, what are the steps to make a waterproof image soap with a Cinderlyssa mold?
Making soap in a silicone mold is a straightforward process. Here's a step-by-step guide:

Materials Needed:

  1. Soap base (glycerin or melt-and-pour soap base)
  2. Cinderlyssa silicone mold
  3. Fragrance oil or essential oil (optional)
  4. Soap colorants (optional)
  5. Heat-resistant measuring cup or bowl
  6. Stirring utensil
  7. Waterproof image paper
  8. Knife or soap cutter
  9. Weight scale

Steps:

Prepare the Silicone Mold:
Ensure your silicone mold is clean and dry and insert the waterproof image paper, pressing it down completely and evenly to the mold bottom.
Cut Soap Base:
Cut the soap base into small, uniform pieces. This helps in even melting.
Melt Soap Base:
Place the soap base in a heat-resistant measuring cup or bowl. Microwave it in short bursts (20-30 seconds) until fully melted. Stir between each burst to ensure even melting.
Add Fragrance and Color (Optional):
If you want scented and colored soap, add fragrance oil or essential oil to the melted soap base. You can also add soap colorants to achieve the desired color. Stir thoroughly to distribute the fragrance and color evenly.

Pour into Mold:

 

Place your mold and inserted image on a scale and zero it out before pouring your soap into the mold so you can see the exact weight you put in.
Pour the melted soap mixture into the silicone mold. Fill each cavity to the desired level.
Cooling Period:
Allow the soap to cool and harden. This typically takes an hour or so, but you can speed up the process by placing the mold in the refrigerator.
Demolding:
Once the soap has completely hardened, gently flex the silicone mold to release the soap bar. If you encounter resistance, let the soap sit for a bit longer or place it in the refrigerator again.
Enjoy Your Soap:
Your soap bar is ready to use or package!

Remember to follow safety precautions when working with hot soap base, and experiment with different scents and colors to create unique soap bars.
