Great Soap

Bought this base to start making soaps. This is a great base. Great selling potential with the Aragon Oil. Customer have name awareness with this oil. Also most are aware it is a costly this oil can be to buy. This base is beautiful and golden when set, easy to use, and great on the skin. My customers have even reported their acne clearing up with use. I love the moisturizing, yet squeaky clean feeling this soap provides after use.

The fragrance oil may shade the tone of the golden hue if the oil is darker. I have not tired any of the other bases to be able to compare to this one. All in all I love this product has a great scent hold, and application on the skin. Would recommend.

Difficult to melt

I purchased this melt because it was on sale. I tried to use it, but it is challenging to keep loose enough to pour. I have to reheat to get a smooth pour constantly. I followed the instructions, but it is not working, and it doesn't harden after several days left curing.

I literally couldn't get this base to melt.

I don't know if I'm doing something wrong, but when melting in the microwave, as I've done with every other melt and pour base that I've bought, this bubbled up into foam and never went beyond the consistency of salt water taffy. I couldn't get it liquid enough to even pour correctly into my mold. I had to press it in and try to smooth out the tops with water and a spoon. Then, it never got completely hard. Nice lather though. Am I doing something wrong?

Very Spongy

I would give this a 0 if that was an option. I have purchased the Stephenson Goat Milk base before and LOVE it. However, this base was AWFUL. It does not lather at all and it does not get hard at all. I did not overheat the base. I did not add more than 2% fragrance/essential oils. I made 3 different batches and all 3 came out very spongy. I couold literally squeeze the soap and then let go and it would take back its shape just like a sponge. I was very disappointed. I would not order this base again.

Easy to use

This was very easy to use and sets up nicely. Also holds the fragrance very well. I gave it 3 stars because I actually found it to be very drying which is odd since it's made with argan oil. In a side-by-side test using this base and the Natural HF melt and pour, the Natural base was much more moisturizing. I had high hopes for the argan oil base, but it just wasn't meant to be for my dry skin.
