Jessica, a student in New Zealand just wrote me to ask how to make a chocolate scrubby soap. I thought I would post my suggestions for making a chocolatey scrubby confetion delight here for everyone to enjoy!
Chocolate Exfoliant soap using melt and pour is super easy, fun to make and smells amazing. It will lather a very light brown due to the discoloring nature of the fragrance.
I’d recommend these ingredients:
Goatsmilk Melt and Pour soap
Dark Rich Chocolate fragrance
Square or Rectangle Mold
Orange Peel, Crushed Grape Seeds or Lavender for an exfoliant
If you want to have a scrubby soap that actually suspends the exfoliants, you’ll be stirring for a bit. Melt and Pour soap gets more viscous as it starts to set up. If you add your exfoliant and continually stir for 3 to 5 minutes, the soap should suspend the scrubby additives more easily.
Follow basic melt and pour instructions for melting the soap, adding the fragrance and pouring into the mold and you’re done: http://www.teachsoap.com/mp.html
The entire project should take 15 minutes, including clean up.
The Chocolate soap pictured is sold by The Fragrant Lemon Peel, an at-home, spa party business. The photograph makes me drool.

Funny to see this post, I recently spent several hours in the car with grandchildren~ who for the entire ride had a chocolate smelling lipgloss opened. I think by the end of the ride, it was everywhere, but where it was intended! Oh my~ how they will love to make this chocolate delight, and soon! Fun!
Hi Jeannie –
If you’re doing MP, you could always use our Vanilla Color Stabilizer. It’s a fragrance modifier, used with Vanilla based fragrances, that retards the browning – so it will totally take away the browning or make it way lighter. So, that’s an option for keeping your “white” chocolate a lighter color or a pure white!

Hi…The dark rich choc fragrance smells awesome. I used it last Feb with my “white” choc covered strawberry soap…I made a heart shaped tube of clear strawberry, imbedded it in white chocolate soap, then sliced.It was SO pretty and smelled amazing. Much to my dismay, the ‘white’ choc soap did not stay WHITE….It turned tan. Don’t know why I didn’t think of that beforehand. Is there a way to make it dark enough (white soap) to look like dark choc????
Jeannie…in the furnace of GA.
