This is an excellent quality soap base which contains 100% organic oils certified by the Soil Association.
This soap base is SLS, SLES and MPG free but creates a beautifully soft lather with good foaming and excellent moisturising properties. It can be coloured and holds both synthetic fragrance and natural essential oils very well. It is translucent but has a light honey/beige colour to it.
A great option for those soapmakers who want their finished product to be as natural as possible without compromising on the ease of use offered by melt and pour bases.
