If you have been searching for a natural, white buttermilk melt and pour (glycerine) soap base, then this product is for you. This is a absolutely decadent, creamy white melt and pour soap base.
Crafted in NZ, this soap base contains only natural ingredients. Buttermilk contains many skin- and hair-loving properties. This base has the most beautiful, sweet smell, almost like milk and honey. It creates large bubbles that quickly becomes a thick and luxurious lather without much effort.
To Melt: Chop into small 2cm cubes and melt in a Pyrex jug in the microwave on short 20-30 second bursts or on a double-boiler. Do not leave unattended (watch it carefully) as this base melts very quickly.
Colouring your soap base: This soap base is white so added colours will be pastel.
If you just want a pure and natural soap, just chop it off the block as you need it – no need to add anything else.
Colour: Creamy white.
Odour: Sweet and milky with a nutty finish.
Vegan Status: Not vegan due to the buttermilk.
Melting Point: 45-55 °C.
Product Consistency: This is a hard and brittle base. Take care when un-moulding small or intricate soaps – we recommend freezing them for 30 minutes prior. It also sets up quickly and will form a skin if you don’t keep stirring. We recommend giving it a really good tap once in the mould, to ensure it has reached all edges of the mould. Remember, this is a natural base and does not contain artificial ingredients that make it easier to work with.
Decomposition Point: 150°C. Do not over-heat this base as it is a natural product made from oils and will begin to smoke if you heat it above this point.
pH: 7.8-8.5. This is quite low for soap and will not strip your skin like higher pH soaps.
Packaging: Cellophane (derived from trees) and sticky tape plus a label.
