Love this Base

I used this base for the first time to make a watermelon looking soap and wanted the soap seeds I made to be suspended well. This base did a great job of that. So good! I made it for a strawberry looking soap too and suspended apricot seeds and again it worked great! It's also great for moisture as well for washing, my skin loves it!

Pros and Cons

-Suspension is perfect
-Lathers well
-Hold fragrance well (i recommend 2 oz of fragrance per 2 lbs of soap)
-very good finish on top, very smooth
-Easy melt

-More bubble forming in finished product however it is NOT terrible, just a note i thought i should add. (to reduce bubble stir gently)

My Experience:
I purchased a 2 lb block of this and was taken back by how well the suspension base worked. It holds color and scent exceptionally and i am more than impressed with the appearance. It was easy to work with.
