- Around P200 for the unripe fruits that you’d like to juice. For this project we’ll use papaya, tomato, and carrots.
- Measuring cup
- You’ll also need gloves and goggles, mold, and a ladle for stirring the mixture.
You may buy your raw materials from Spices and Food Mix House on E. Rodriguez Sr. Boulevard in Quezon City and your utensils from Divisoria or your local market.
Step 1. Slice the fruits into small bits (no need to peel the skin, but remove any seeds) before placing them in an electric juicer for extraction that will take less than five minutes. Separate the pulp from the extract by using a strainer, and then set the juice aside.
Step 2. Prepare the coconut oil (250 ml), lye solution (100 ml), colorant (5 ml), sodium silicate (5 ml), CDEA (5 ml), castor oil or moisturizer (5 ml), fruit or herbal extract (5 ml), anti-bacterial liquid (2 ml), preservatives (2 ml) and fragrance (5 ml). Measure before mixing because the mixture will solidify quickly.
