Ingredients:

8 oz. baking soda
5 oz. citric acid
8 oz. SLSA
.2 oz. white kaolin (cosmetic) clay
.3 oz. xanthan gum powder
2.5 oz. refined shea butter
1 oz. kokum butter
1 oz. vegetable glycerin
.3 oz. safflower oil
.3 oz. Candy Crush fragrance oil
1 teaspoon pink mica powder
biodegradable cosmetic glitter, of choice

How to make this mooncake bubble bar recipe:

You will need a digital scale to weigh out all of the ingredients for my mooncake bubble bar recipe, minus the mica powder and glitter. You will also need a mooncake mold of your choice.

Begin by weighing out the shea butter and kokum butter into a small glass Pyrex measuring cup or a glass bowl.

Heat the butters in the microwave at 40% until almost fully melted. Then remove and stir until the rest of the kokum butter melts fully.

Next, weigh out the glycerin and safflower oil and stir into the melted butters. Set aside to cool down.

In a separate large 8-cup glass Pyrex measuring cup or large glass bowl, weigh out the combine the baking soda, citric acid, SLSA, kaolin clay and xanthan gum powder. (I highly recommend wearing a face protection mask for this step.)

Using a teaspoon measuring spoon, measure out one teaspoon of pink mica powder and add to the bowl of dry ingredients. Use a fork to combine the dry ingredients together, mixing well to ensure that all of the dry ingredients are evenly incorporated throughout. Set aside.

Now prepare your workspace for creating your moon cake bubble bars. Lay a piece of parchment paper onto a cutting board or cookie sheet. Choose the pattern you’d like to use for your moon cake mold and insert it into the press. Then add some glitter to a small bowl or plate.

Once your wet ingredients for the bubble bar recipe have cooled, but not started to solidify, weigh out the stir in the fragrance oil.

Now slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, mixing as you go, until the dry ingredients are evenly coated. (You don’t want the mixture too wet or it will expand. Therefore you may have some liquid left over. What you want is the consistency of wet sand.) Dust the inside of your mooncake mold with some of the glitter. Then take a scoop of the bubble bar mix and press one side into the glitter.

Fill the mooncake mold with the bubble bar dough, inserting the glitter side first until it’s filled. Remove any excess dough from the mold, then press out the bubble bar onto your covered work surface.

Working quickly, repeat this process until you’ve made all nine bubble bars. Then pop your mooncake bubble bars in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes to quickly cool them off and to help the kokum butter solidify.

Once cool, remove the mooncake bubbles bars from the freezer, then set aside in a cool dry location to dry – about one to two days. Then wrap and label your fairy dusted mooncake bubble bars as desired for personal use or gifting.

If you’d like to make this mooncake bubble bar recipe for products to sell then you’ll need to make sure you label your bubble bars according to FDA guidelines. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale to help get you started.

    Hi! This looks like a fun recipe! Is there any substitute for the xanthan gum powder? Thanks!

    What a fun project! I just made these and my mooncake mold must be much bigger than yours; it only made 6 cakes (and I didn’t fill the mold to the top) and the’re huge! What are the directions for use? Do you crumble them under the running water or plop them into a filled tub?

      Yes, crumble them in warm, running bath water. It sounds like yours expanded from the combo of baking soda and citric acid. They should still work fine though! Glad you had fun making these!
