What exactly goes into our melt and pour soap and cosmetic bases? The process is deceptively simple: Melt and pour soap and cosmetic bases are created through combining a mixture of ingredients including various fatty acids, glycerin, and a few other ingredients that create a cleansing final product.
Some of these ingredients can be hard to pronounce, but they all serve important purposes and aren't so scary when you know what they do! We’ve put together a glossary of the ingredients in our Stephenson’s melt and pour soap and cosmetic bases to help demystify any unfamiliar terms. If you plan to sell your soap, or bath and body products, this list also provides some talking points for you to share with your customers.
