If you have been searching for the most natural transparent melt and pour (glycerine) soap base on the market, then this product is for you. It provides a wonderful starting point for designs that need deep/vibrant or sparkling colours.
Crafted in NZ, this translucent soap base contains only natural ingredients. It provides an excellent skin feel and is an absolute pleasure to use. Perfect for those with sensitive/dry skin but also cleansing enough to use on oilier skin. It is a true all-rounder.
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 base: This base accepts colourants readily, and is quite clear when solid. It contains no ‘nasties’ that make other clear bases ultra transparent, instead it uses all natural ingredients to achieve its clarity.
It will accept colours well and be true to those colours, however if you are planning to use embeds, keep in mind that it will not be as clear as other clear bases as it contains completely natural products.
If you just want a pure and natural soap, just chop it off the block as you need it – no need to add any fragrances or colour.
Odour: Mildly sweet.
Melting Point: 45-55 °C.
Product Consistency: This base has a medium hardness.
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.
