Silicone soap molds have
many major advantages to wooden soap molds or the rigid plastic
molds that will more than often cut your fingers and hands. Silicone
molds are soft and flexible. There are many items that just could
not be made from a traditional mold without ugly parting lines.
It is easy to use and has a long library life.One soap mold can
produce thousands upon thousands of bars of soaps before you would
even consider replacing it.
Another great feature of silicone is the fact
that nothing will stick to it. There is no need for a mold release
when using silicone molds. You can pour soap, resin, wax, plaster,
polyester and just about any casting material into a silicone mold
and it will not stick. Once the casting material has cured it comes
out with minimal effort.
Silicone can also withstand high heats. It is no
secret that when making soap the soap in it's liquid form can be
scalding hot. Silicone molds are not affected by this heat thus
making it a prime candidate for soap making.
Silicone can even capture the finest details. It
is so amazing that it can pick up a fingerprint from a piece of
clay. This is yet another reason that silicone is superior.
