How to Make Creamy Iridescent Foaming Bath Whip

Often referred to as whipped soap even though it’s technically not soap.  It makes use of detergents to make a silky thick whipped pipeable texture that’s gorgeous to use in the shower.

Here is the formula for a 500g Batch

Phase A
15% (75g) SCI
15% (75g) Cocamidopropyl Betaine

Phase B
43.5% (217.5g) Distilled Water
5% (25g) Vegetable Glycerine

Phase C
8% (40g) Stearic Acid
5% (25g) Fractionated Coconut Oil
3% (15g) Emulsifying Wax
1% (5g) Shea Butter, refined

Phase D
2% (10g) Blackberry Fragrance Oil
1% (5g) Phenoxyethanol Ehg
0.5% (2.5g) Kaolin Clay
0.5% (2.5g) Vitamin e
0.5% (2.5g) Mica


Wear a respirator as SCI is not good to breath in!

In a heatproof beaker mix your SCI and Cocamidopropyl Betaine.

In a second heatproof beaker, mix the Glycerine and Distilled Water.

In a third heatproof beaker mix your phase C ingredients.

Weigh your water phase including beaker weight.

Heat phases A, B and C separately until Phase C has melted and all beakers are around the same temperature, using a Bain Marie.

Take off the heat and pour the water phase into the oil phase and mix with your hand mixer.

Add your surfactants and mix further. 

Allow to cool to 40 degrees C and then add your cool down ingredients, phase D.

Whip with your hand mixer to a light fluffy texture.

Take pH and adjust if needed.

Pipe or spoon into jars ready for use.



This creates a beautiful aerated fluffy whipped texture.  If you want a smoother, heavier cream you can sheer mix and stir instead of whipping.

You can sub the oil phase ingredients for different oil, butter and emulsifier if you prefer, but avoid BTMS-50 as it won’t be compatible with the chosen surfactants.

If you want, you can add an exfoliant like coconut powder, jojoba beads etc or a fruit powder.  I would avoid sugar due to the high water content.

You could use any fragrance oil you like and split your mix into different bowls before adding colour to create pretty layering or piping in your jars.
