All Natural SFIC Crystal Clear Glycerin Melt and Pour Soap Base: This soap base is a new formulation and is the clearest melt and pour base SFIC offers. It has 25% added glycerin which makes it sweat a little more. It also is the only SFIC base with an added surfactant. It does however have very good clarity for a natural melt and pour soap base. Ingredients:
Glycerine (kosher, of vegetable origin)
Coco Amidopropyl Betaine (surfactant made from coconut oil)
Sodium Hydroxide (saponifying agent)
Propylene Glycol (made from vegetable glycerine)
Sorbitan oleate (emulsifer)
Oat protein (conditioner)
I have been using crystal clear glycerin soap since day one and love it. Great and easy to work with.
This is the formulation with the highest concentration of glycerin. As a result it is excellent for maintaining lather throughout the use of a bar of soap made by this formulation. The "sweating", although to some might be considered a drawback, is offset by its ability to clean the skin of dirt and oils. It is this writer's hope that the product will remain part of the raw materials offered by Bulk Apothecary.
