These are our last few 1kg containers of soap base, reduced to make space for new stocks.†
SLS Free Translucent Melt and Pour Soap Base† for easy to make homemade soap.
A†Sodium Lauryl Sulphate free melt and pour soap base which is 100% vegetable based and has not been tested on animals. ( Please note that this soap is not sodium laureth sulphate free and that there is a difference between sodium lauryl and sodium laureth. We stopped selling the SLS and SLES soap base due to lack of customer demand due to the cost.)
Soap making is fun and rewarding and there is no easier way than with melt and pour soap base following the simple instructions below.
Directions for use: Chopping your base up into smaller chunks will aid the melting process. Melt in a microwave at 10-second intervals on a medium setting, stirring gently in between. Be careful not to let the soap boil. You can also melt using a Bain Marie.
Remove from the heat and allow the soap to cool slightly. Add your fragrance, many soap makers work at 3% for Essential Oils and 2% for Fragrance Oils depending on your oils.
Now you can add your preferred colour, home made vegetable dyes work well to give a subtle natural colour, botanicals offer a very natural hint of colour to your soap.
Pour the soap slowly into soap moulds, you could use an everyday container from your kitchen to make a soap loaf to be sliced. 500g of soap base is enough to make 5-6 standard sized bars depending on the design.
Leave to cool and set for preferably 12 hours, then ease them from the moulds.
Glycerine attracts moisture, which can collect on the surface of your soaps and spoil their appearance so protect them by wrapping them tightly in cling film; this also protects their fragrance.
Ingredients: Aqua, Propylene glycol, Sodium stearate, Sodium laureth sulphate (SLES), Glycerine, Sucrose, Sodium cocoate, Sodium xylene sulphonate, Stearic acid, Tetrasodium EDTA, Tetrasodium etidronate.
