I ordered this in the past and LOVED it. However, my last order of this base was much darker than the previous order. It looked old. When I opened one it smelled like plastic - like old Tupperware plastic from the 70s (yucky). I decided to go ahead and use some to make a batch of soap, but no matter how much fragrance I added, it still has an underlying plastic smell. That is too bad because I really loved this base.

I LOVE this base. It lathers super well without the unnecessary additives that most other soaps contain. I just wish CandleScience would carry the 25 lb box because I LOVE this company but I have to buy this product in the bulk box that has the breakdown sides elsewhere :(
This base is so fun and easy to work with.
I love that it's made from organic vegetable oils and that I can promote that in my businesses favor for wellness.
All my CS fragrance oils take exceptionally well to this base. My customers just love it!
