Our 2.5 pound premium soap mold holds 31.5 ounces (1.96 pounds) of oils maximum. It will yield approximately 2.5 pounds of finished soap. If this mold is filled to the very top, it can yield up to 2.9 pounds of soap before cure or cook. This mold features removable sides and a clear lid for viewing soap as it gels. The lid limits contact with air during saponification reducing ash on soaps.
