This base seems to have bad reviews but it all depends on what someone wants to do with this type of soap. It definitely has a different consistency while it is getting cooler but for me it works perfectly when working with layered creations. It also works well for some other soaps I make since it seems to be more sturdy and thicker than other ones, therefore, it last longer.

An excellent product for beginner soap makers. Keep it basic and produce a standard white opaque soap bar, or mix it up and have some fun with a combination of dyes and fragrances. Due to its versatile nature, this melt-and-pour soap base remains a favorite of crafters and manufacturers. Its quick hardening ability make it excellent for layering multiple colors.

This base is not my favorite M&P. Once melted it needs to be stirred constantly or it was harden very quickly and reheating it does not work. I had a batch that turned into a glue consistency and I was unable to use it. I made the mistake of buying 25 lbs off the bat so I have about 15lbs left to use. If you have doing a quick M&P recipe and want a lighter color this would be good to use. But it you are doing layers and need to sit and wait for each layer to dry I would not recommend this base.
