All Natural SFIC Low Sweat Clear Glycerin Melt and Pour Soap Base: This soap base is the same as the normal clear SFIC soap base but uses all natural oils of palm and coconut in place of the traditional oils. Ingredients:
Glycerine (kosher, of vegetable origin)
Sodium Hydroxide (saponifying agent)
Propylene Glycol (made from vegetable glycerine)
Sorbitan oleate (emulsifier)
Oat protein (conditioner)
BA is great, and my experiences with ALL other SFIC bases have been great. This one, however, did not work for me. I bought it because some of my other bars were sweating in the SE Alaska humidity. I make MP & CP, and I use the double broiler method for my MP. This soap melted fine the first time, but it was full of bubbles, and alcohol spritz did not work. All my soaps have an unappealing filmy top layer. I had some leftover batter in the pan that I tried to remelt, and it turned opaque and had the consistency of shredded coconut. It hardened before I could even pour it. Just awful. I would recommend the plain SFIC Clear... let soaps cool completely... then shrink wrap to seal from moisture.
Got rid of bubbles by spraying rubbing alcohol on mold $ after pouring, right onto h9t soap. Loved working with this glycerin!
I followed an instructional to the tee. All went perfect. Very good tip I learned-put rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle & spray the mold shortly before pouring the melted glycerin into molds. Once evenly poured, spray spray the top. This eliminate EVERY SINGLE bubble. (I've heard that the bubbles are a frequent problem when using glycerin. ) I loved making soap!!
Love how it is packaged, love how it performs.
Takes color and scent well. Great bubbles, great softness.
Will only buy from you now.
The bars arrived all in one piece, wrapped in bubble wrap, and I can't wait to get started on making my own soap!
A must use to keeep your soap to keep it from losing its integrity in the outside elements.
My first up to bat and it's a base hit. Back to my school boy days been reading and studying a lot about M&P the pros the cons. Not real soap making, they sweat, etc..Well this base was no sweat literally and I really made this base into bars of soap, really!!! and with great joy. Bulk Apothecary will be my source for M&P for the duration of my M&P soap (making) C&P up next. Thanx B.A. you've got a lifelong customer!!!
I'm very pleased with the performance of this soap!! I've been looking for an all natural M&P soap base for my personal use and for my customers!! Great price and packaged to reduce wastefulness.
This was my first attempt at making soap, and it turned out perfect. Thanks,
