Can I melt and pour this into other soaps?
You sure can, however you need to read this important tip.Coconut Soap has naturally retained Glycerine, which absorbs moisture from the air. If you melt and pour and leave in open air its very likely your soap will suck in moisture and form a crusty white crystalline powder all over them. Not too pretty!!The key is to put your moulds in an airtight container until they have set properly – DO NOT PUT THEM IN THE FRIDGE! If you have some silica beads (those little packets that come on a shoe box that says Do Not Eat), place them in the container to also reduce the moisture.
