This soap base performs well for me. It very sudsy and moisturizing. Making soap bars from this base is very easy. I would buy again.
I continue to use this even with the less lather. I add a solution that helps it lather better. Otherwise this is fine soap
I love the Stephenson's goat's milk base, but this is a close second to my favorite! Makes wonderful, easy soaps....lathers well, moisturizes, takes scent and additives well. Just love it!
I am disappointed. The product is supposed to smell neutral, but instead has a light floral scent that isnt covered by other scents. It does not lather at all, unless i have used it wrong. Won't buy this again
I am not sure if it is the base or the way I am making my soap but I do not get enough lather from the soap I made using this base. Any advice to help with this?
This base is fantastic, I started my business after friends and co-workers wanted more soap so I decided to also offer in my shop. This base holds ingredients very well and finishes beautifully.
It seems to be of high quality but I am new to this. The process was a lot more messy than I thought. "Just heat and pour" is not all there is to it. Be prepared to work quickly as there appears to be a sweet spot between melting, mixing, and pouring into the molds.
I use soft moisture rich soap and this has a higher melt point than most, bringing my ingredients together perfectly as a base. I highly recommend it for experimenting or ensuring early success.
This was my first time using a M&P base and I found it was very easy to use, melted well and took well to color and fragrance. I am happy with it & love the size it comes in
