If you have been searching for a pure and natural coconut melt and pour (glycerine) soap base, then this product is for you. This is a pure white coconut oil soap base.
Crafted in NZ, this soap base contains only natural ingredients. It provides superior cleansing but is also gentle enough for use on your face. It produces beautiful, big bubbles that will form a dense and luxurious lather very quickly.
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. This base will be clear when melted but turn opaque again once it has cooled and hardened.
Colouring your soap base: This base is bright white – 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.
Odour: Mildly sweet and nutty.
Vegan Status: Vegan friendly.
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.
