I've been using this as a base for years, blending kaolin clay in to use as a facial bar. Love how my face feels after I wash it, not dry, but clean. A friend's grandson had awful acne and was using a prescription but it had side effects. I gave her a bar for him and 2 years later, he is off the meds, using this soap and Dr. Thayer witch hazel and the acne is gone and he surprisingly has few scars.
I personally don't care for soft soap, I'm super new to this and maybe there's a way to hardened it? My daughter absolutely loves it. We made star fish and little flowers that are perfect for lite hands.
This truly is a soft, silky smooth melt & pour base. I infused some essential oil and honey into the mixture and my goodness! I'm in love!
I will be ordering again & again!
I have sensitive skin and this base works well for me and my husband doesn’t like washing with animal fats so this base is a win win for our household
I used this with brown sugar and coconut oil. It lathers pretty well. One bar ( about 1" by 3" rectangle or 1/8 a lb apx.) lasts me about 3 weeks bathing every day. This carries scent nicely as well. The only drawback is the fade. By the end of the bar the scent isn't quite as strong. I might add a little more scent about 1.25 oz scent per lb was used.
Good base soap
If you want a masculine scent, something like men's aftershave this one is for you. I was expecting a more earthy, or woody scent I guess.
Success the first time at making homemade soap! Love the feel of the soap and the way it lathers.
My family has been using Castile soap for years, its great for sensitive skin, psoriasis, eczema, etc.
And you can't beat the price!
