Pomegranate Pink Clay Soap Recipe: French Luxury in a Melt and Pour Soap

A fruity, sweet French perfection with just the right amount of pink, this pomegranate pink clay soap recipe is everything a luxurious handmade soap should be.

I fell in love with pomegranate when I first used it to make tinted lip balm.  It created just the right amount of color for my simple everyday beauty routine. And I can’t get enough of the scent! 

Pomegranate smells fruity and sweet with the crispness of an apple. The scent drew me back to my teenage years when I couldn’t get enough of Bath and Body Works products. My five-year-old daughter says it smells like fruity rice crispy treats. (We make ours with fruity pebbles cereal and a splash of vanilla extract.) 

However it hits your senses, this pomegranate pink clay soap captures the juiciness of pomegranate in a unique melody of moisturizing shea butter and rejuvenating French pink clay. Hand-poured into distinct layers of varying shades of pink and topped with vibrant pomegranate flower petals. 

Altogether producing a beautiful, superbly satisfying handmade soap loaded with benefits for the skin!

Pomegranate Pink Clay Soap Supplies:

Rectangle silicone soap mold

How to Make Pink Clay Soap

  1. Get your soap mold ready by cleaning, drying, and spritzing with rubbing alcohol. Choose from more than a dozen soap molds here.
  2. Next, chop up 1 lb of shea butter soap base into ½” to 1” cubes in size using a soap knife. Divide the chopped soap into 1/2 lb sections for layering.
  3. Scoop 1/2 lb of the soap base into a large glass measuring cup. Place it in the microwave and melt the soap base in 30 seconds intervals, stirring intermittently to avoid burning for approximately 2 minutes. (You can also melt on the stove using the double boiler method.) 
  4. Once melted quickly add ⅛ teaspoon of pomegranate seed oil and .25 ounces of pomegranate soap fragrance. Stir with a silicone spatula to combine. 
  5. Then add 1 tablespoon of french pink clay to create the first rich pink layer. Pour it into 4 soap bar cavities, filling approximately half of each cavity. 
  6. For the 2nd layer repeat steps #3 and #4. Then add only 2 teaspoons of pink clay for a softer pink color and pour over the first layer.
  7. For the finishing touch sprinkle each soap bar with pomegranate flower petals

Let the soap bars cool and cure for at least 1 hour before removing from the silicone mold.
