This translucent glycerin soap base is one of the purest and most natural products you can find. Ready to melt, scent, color, mold and be used in less than a few hours. Or, slice it up and use it as-is. Either way, this soap has a high glycerin content which means it will leave your skin feeling naturally soft and not chemically stripped.
We use no chemicals nor surfactants in our melt & pour soap bases. For this reason, this soap base is not considered a fully "clear" base (meaning you cannot see thru it like you would a crystal clear base). To achieve a super clear soap, agents have to be added that will "clear up" the naturally occurring cloudiness -- and we simply don't use those types of agents in our soap. So what you get with this base, is a somewhat see-thru bar ... we call it "translucent."
A few additional items to consider when purchasing melt & pour bases:
* Molds ... for molding your soap.
* Colorants .... for coloring, of course! You can use iron oxides, ultramarines - or check through our vast botanical additives and look for powders that will "bleed" a color into your soaps. Most listings will give a brief explanation on how to use them as colorants. If you have a question - always feel free to email us.
* Scents - If you want your soap to be all natural, check out our essential oil list. If you don't mind synthetic scents that smell great, check out our fragrance oils.
*Please note that when soap is made by natural methods, you MUST use sodium hydroxide. There just isn't really any other way to make a "soap." Once the bars have been made, sodium hydroxide is no longer found in them, due to the reaction it made with the oils to create "soap."
