Making Natural Soap Live


In this live broadcast we were making 50 Shades of Grey Handcrafted Natural Soap. You can watch this broadcast but fair warning it’s a long one… If you are new to the blog or Me, Zakia. I make my own handmade soap typically Live on Facebook, Instagram and Periscope. During this broadcast I am ramping up production because I have a large event in less than five days and we are expecting a crowd of 1000 people.

One of my viewers who was on Instagram Live with me when this idea was born appeared on the Live Periscope broadcast. In this video we talk color in natural soap and a whole lot more.

How I decided on Colors in Handmade Soap

I was on Instagram doing a little bit of preparation and realized I had every color in the rainbow for the show. I needed something a little more masculine. I asked the live viewers, “What other color can I use”. Somebody responded  “GRAY”! For the colorants I used a mixture of mica colorants, activated charcoal and Titanium Dioxide. I then did a simple drop swirl because I was starting to run out of time.

I got really excited. You know that feeling when it’s a Eureka and a stroke of Genius at the same time… Yeah that’s what happened during that Live Stream. I started grabbing every shade of Gray I could find and in an instant I said. Why not call it FIFTY SHADES OF GREY! Like the movie and novel!

Definitely a Eureka Moment for sure!

Additional Bath and Body Treats During the Live Natural Soap Show

During this broadcast I also did a crinkle cut for my co-workers custom order of Basil Essential Oil soap, gave a sneak peak into the President Barack Obama collection and talked about Relax, Relate, Release. That’s a hilarious reference to the tv show “A Different World”.

Sorry for the strange hellos, and comments but this was recorded live. Feel free to scrub through the video and watch what you want.

Until Next time…
