In this very article I want to teach you guys how to make a lightening soap in its simplest method, this is just a simple way of combination of several substances which won’t take much of your time, this is for individuals who have love for DIY.
HERE WE GO
Soap base or Your favourite soap
4 teaspoon Honey
2 table spoon lemon or lime fruit
4 Table spoon Papaya oil or carrot oil
4-5 Table spoon Papaya puree (blended papaya)
1 Table spoon Kojic acid and
METHOD OF PREPARATION
Get a papaya wash and slice it into pieces, then put them into an electric blender squeeze two lemon fruit juice into the blender, and blend till it has a smooth texture, (looking like a paste) this is called puree.
In another glass jar add one table spoon of kojic acid powder and Arbutin power, desolve them using a double boiler method.
HOW DO I DESOLVE IT USING A DOUBLE BOILER METHOD?
This is how its done after the combination of both kojic acid powder and Arbutin power in a glass jar according to their measurement stated above, add four table spoon of water to it, (dont use a plastic jar), turn on your heater in its lowest form (stove, gas coocker, Electric cooker) pour two cups of water into the pot and place it on the heat, then
Place the glass jar (where you combined both powders) on the water in the pot, keep stirring it, don’t let it boil, that is why you have to turn the heat in its lowest form.
After 5-6 minutes of proper stirring the powder will desolve.
That’s how to desolve kojic acid, Arbutin powder and other crystalline powders using the double boiler method.
Then add the desolved powder to the papaya puree you just blended.
Get your soap base or any favourite soap of yours, grate it or cut them to pieces desolve it by heating using the double boiler method or your can use the microwave, when its fully desolved then add the mixture of papaya puree, lemon or lime juice, kojic acid & Arbutin powder to the desolved soap.
Add your carrot oil or papaya oil and finally add your raw organic honey according to their measurement stated above and stir thoroughly, allow it to cool.
Note: you can add other lightening powders if you like, (giga white powder, Filipino powder etc)
Congratulations your lightening soap is ready
