Lathers well!

Melt, add fragrance, stir, pour into your mold.

It’s easy to use and foams well.

Very good

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.

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.
