Updated: May 4, 2020

Nowadays, many parents resort to technology in order to keep their kids entertained and occupied, completely forgetting the benefits of arts and crafts.

True, technology is very useful, and kids should be introduced to it, but it should never come at the expense of them playing and making things with their own hands. There are many benefits of arts and crafts for kids, from helping them socialise and express themselves to helping them develop other skills and think more critically. So, if you want your child to have fun and experience all these benefits, encourage them to take part in such activities – they are both fun and useful, and your kid will definitely enjoy exploring their own imagination.

When doing activities at home with kids we're always looking for the safest option. In terms of soap making this means 'melt & pour' soap bases. Making soaps is great activity to enjoy at home that will improve their coordination and fine motor skills, will develop their creativity skills as well as will help them express themselves while creating stronger bonds with their parents,

What is Melt & Pour Soap?

Melt & Pour Soap is a pre-made, manufactured base designed to be remelted. A good quality Melt & Pour Soap allows itself to be “played with”; and does not contain nasty chemicals on its compositions, what we're looking for is naturally derived ingredients.

Melt and Pour Soap is a “glycerine” soap base that is easily melted, coloured and moulded into stunning and creative soap.

It is great way to start soaping, as it is easy to use, can be adapted to using everyday ingredients, and can evolve and become more creative as you become more confident with your soap crafting. It's ready to use right away, no curing required Melt & Pour Soap is very versatile, and the additives that you can incorporate are the same as for all; with creativity your soap can become art works!
