This grid soap is made from mode shown in the figure below.

Was used quite simple basic formulation. The important thing is to always work with very light trace to allow a good leveling between layers and is essential in accurate alignment of colors.

In this formulation all oils were kept as the shampoo bar for hair and body that is most suitable for normal hair and thin. Was added 15% coconut oil or palm kernel or babassu, which is quite suitable for oily hair because the cleaning action of these oils. For the low amount, the cleaning action is very smooth emollient keeping this kind of shampoo.
