Moisturizing

Was an easy soap to work with compared to some other bases I've tried. it has a good lather and my hands feel moisturized after using plus the price is the best I've been able to find.

Ummm, Love But!

Why doesn't it lather? I use this to make some samples but when I test, lathering takes so long, and within 3 to 4 use the soap is halfway to finishing. I bought the kit so so I got the 6 Bar Large Rectangle Silicone Soap Molds so it's a good size soap. Please advise me.

Soap doesn't lather

I’m starting my soap business & I used “goats milk base”. Slight problem, the soap 🧼 barely lathers up, I follow every step by step as I suppose to. I don't know if that's normal with the goat milk base 🤷‍♀️. Need help please. Thank you.

Goat milk soap kit

So I just started making soap. I was just wondering how much fragrance oil we should be using in our soap. I keep seeing 3% but is that like 3% per Ib or something ? I just have sensitive skin so I don’t want to be putting more than I need too

Not as good as I was hoping…

Melt was fantastic, the two different scents I used blended wonderfully. The issue I have is the chemical smell to the soap. I am fairly new to melt and pour soaps so I melted it up and gave it a try to see if that would fade. Unfortunately, the chemical after-smell didn’t fade with the first scent mixed in (water mint and clementine), tried a second batch with high tide scent. That one is still setting so it hasn’t been tested yet, but doesn’t seem promising so far. I did notice when I pulled the soap from the container to cut the bottom had a layer of bright white a couple mm thick. Not sure if that’s normal, but doesn’t seem consistent with everyone else’s experiences which seem really favorable!

SAFE FOR ME bc there are NO OILS! Amazing!!!💖

i couldn't be more happy & thankful for this soap base. ive really been through a lot...alot, alot.. these past few months with my allergies, and my exzema. i just started getting hives and this horrible rash to every commercial soap and shampoo i purchased. so far ive ruled out salicylic acids, all benzenes etc. wiped out fragrance oils of any kind. and learned my comedogenic scale..then restricted myself to only 0 rated oils which benefited me wonderfully, but also restricted me.

i tried another sfic oat base from another site that charged me outrageous shipping for only 1lb, and it gave me horrendous deep break outs bc i was not fully aware at the time, that it was the coconut and palm that where causing my full body cystic acne flare ups. this is important to mention, bc it is how i found candle science.

This soap did not harm my skin bc it has no oils. i can just add my own safflower oil, or my own grapeseed, shea, salts, and my own collidal oats. coconut and palm harm my skin! and should NEVER be used in soaps for sensitive skin. i will be buying my soap base here from now on. my now trusted source with the most affordable fast shipping anywhere.

please never stop selling this specific oil free base💖

those complaining about a soft bar, please note that if you're going to make bar soap, a base without the restrictions of pre added and unescesary oils is truly a hidden gem, bc it will highly restrict your client base, often with you none the wiser. shea butter is a 0 non comedogenic, & helps make a harder bar for me. i also add Epsom salts, salt hardens a bar soap as well. if your soap is getting dark or rubbery, you are overheating your base and need to watch more soap queen tutorials!

thank you🤗💖

Love Love Love!!!

I used this soap base as a test to see how it compares with my home made goat milk soap. Even though I had my doubts I was pleasantly surprised by how fast it melted and how easy it was to add plant based color. I used Candle Science Oak Moss and Amber oils for scent. All I can say is WOW!! My entire house smells wonderful and my son's love it. The foam is amazing and the scent is light. Now, I will continue make my own homemade goat milk soap, but will also continue to purchase this soap base and oils when making gifts for family and friends. Thank you for this wonderful experience!

Not lather enough and dry skin

Hi, I am starting my candle and soap business, I have some complains about my soap barely lathers up & leaving their skin feels dry afterwards, Is there some type of oil or something that I can add to make it lather more & is there anything that I can do about the dryness?

Love the natural scent

I love the smell of goat's milk soap and this is no exception. My only issue so far is that since I bought the 25lb case, I can struggle with cutting it up.
