If you have been searching for a natural, white buttermilk melt and pour (glycerine) soap base, then this product is for you. This is an 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.
