Looking for a multi-use base to expand your bath and body line? Stephenson Syndopour Hair and Body Base is a unique syndet base that can be used to create a range of mild, pH balanced products. From shampoo bars to moisturizing shave bars, body or facial bars to exfoliating scrub bars; this high lather, gentle formula does it all. This 100% soap-free base is dermatologically tested for sensitive skin and scalps, and uses a gentle surfactant to cleanse.

Note: Unlike melt and pour soap bases, this base has a soft texture. It will harden during the 24-hour cure process.

A Few Tips + Tricks

  • Max Fragrance Recommendation: 2%
  • Max Oil/Butter Recommendation: 1% Adding oils/butters will decrease the lather
  • Heat to 185ºF (85°C) using a double boiler for increased temperature control
  • 185ºF+ (85°C+) temperature must be achieved in order for additives and fragrance to properly bind to the syndet base.
  • The melt color of this product is translucent yellow, but it will return to an opaque white finish after hardening. Fragrance oils, essential oils, and dyes can affect the final color.
  • We recommend cavity molds for this product. If you opt for a loaf mold, we recommend using a wire cutter.

Doesn't melt in the shower

The first thing I noticed is that this product doesn't melt in the shower like soaps tend to. It holds scent nicely even after a couple of months. It is sensitive skin friendly and isuch less drying than soap. I recommend using a round mold for this, as it does tend to break more easily during use if it's in a rectangular shape.
I would LOVE a conditioner bar product to pair with this, so I can make my own complementary scent instead of having to purchase then already made elsewhere.
Thanks for carrying this wonderful product!

I made shampoo bars with this and so far it's the best I've used! I'm going to make them for my customers and see if they feel the same!

On the fence...

I am somewhat on the fence about this product.
I kind of love it but I am a little surprised that after several days it is still very soft, kind of like Mozzarella for the lack of a better comparison. Is it supposed to be like that? I thought it would harden after 24 hours?

Love this!

I wasn't sure about trying this out. I have EXTREMELY sensitive skin and so do my daughters. Also, we have very thick and long hair. My girls are swimmers and they washed their hair today after practice. They agree! Best product ever!! So happy I tried this! Never had a shampoo make our hair so smooth! We will be using this from now on! 1 lb of base made about 8 small silicone molds.
