I'm not impressed

In my experience, I've made 4 batches with it, and it's a very nice lathering soap, but scents don't really work well in it. It does give off a little more scent when in use. The soap itself is almost invisible when used which could lead to overuse of soap. My suggestion is if you don't sell heavier scented soaps, then this will be a very good start/addition.

Love it!

Very nice, smooth when cutting. Can definitely smell the Shea butter, so extra scent is needed to be added if you want to mask it. Melts perfectly, but dries quickly. Works well with micas.

Good, but smell

Its not "Neutral odor" at all. You need to use a lot of concentrated perfume to mask the smell of this soap which smells too industrial. Why does no one write about its strong smell? I will look further on some other base.

Love it!

I've made many bars of soap using this kind. Melts perfectly and smooth! Holds fragrance and dyes very well. Feels great on my hands after removing from molds. Easy to clean up. AWESOME product!
