Not the biggest fan
This doesn’t have the most pleasant of scents to it, but it’s manageable because you’d have to put it directly to your now to smell it. It’s also not the best M&P base to use, as it sets up too quickly. The Clear Palm Free and Oatmeal & Shea M&P bases are pretty good though.
Lovely soap and will reorder as soon as it's in stock. Can we please get an ingredient list in the description?
Best soap base
My clients love the soaps. Customized with herbs. I made a anti-aging soap.
NEW PRODUCT FOR MY COMPANY
I SELL MANY DIFFERENT NATURAL SOAPS, BUT I HAD NOT USED OR SOLD THIS PARTICULAR SOAP.
I BOUGHT 1 PACKAGE, TRIED SOME OF IT MYSELF, THEN PACKAGED THE REST FOR SALE.
MY CUSTOMERS LOVE IT.
THIS SOAP WILL STAY AS A MAIN PART OF MY SOAP LINE

Nice creamy lather and easy to work with. No need to add anything but a little fragrance. I added BA black currant vanilla. A big hit with everyone and no need to add color but takes yellow, oranges and reds well for imbeds then lightly reflect that color into the non colored soap. Very cool.
Love this base! I add a touch of local honey and lemongrass EO and it is long lasting, lathers well and smells great. The only down side is that is does tend to get extra "goopy" toward the end of the bar -- maybe that's true of all glycerin soaps. I'm going to try adding a touch of beeswax next time to see if it will help -- but either way I will continue to purchase this base.

Turned out nicely with beautiful color soaps. Very happy with the end product :0)
Expected Carrot Scent
I agree with most of the reviews it is a good base but I did expect some scent of the carrot or cucumber from it. The other Stephenson bases all have a light scent.
Like This A Lot
I'm new to soaping and starting out with MP bases, with the hopes to "graduate" to cold process. For now, I'm learning and trying to source ingredients as close to natural as possible. Chose this base because I felt the ingredient list was understandable. It creates a very nice lathery soap that leaves my skin feeling soft. My husband also liked it. Overall I'm very pleased with this base -- will be working with it again. Only gave it four stars because it's so darn slippery it's hard to hold onto in the shower!
