Oatmeal is one of the best skin treatments that nature has ever given us. Not only does it gently clean, but it also tones and nourishes your skin at the same time. Add that to a glycerin soap base that is designed to soften and not overly strip the skin of its natural oils, and you have a near-perfect bar of soap! Now all you need to do is: melt, add scent, color, or additives, remold it, and within a few hours, you have your own uniquely created soap for personal use, gifts, or a product for sale.
We do not use surfactants or chemicals in our melt & pour bases. No SLS here! This is a huge benefit for your sales if you intend to sell your soap creations, as customers are becoming aware of the skin allergies associated with many surfactants that are being put into personal care items.
A few additional items to consider when purchasing melt & pour bases:
* Molds … for molding your soap.
* Colorants …. for coloring, of course! You can use iron oxides, ultramarines – or check through our vast botanical additives and look for powders that will “bleed” color into your soaps. Most listings will give a brief explanation on how to use them as colorants. If you have a question – always feel free to email us.
* Scents – If you want your soap to be all-natural, check out our essential oil list. If you don’t mind synthetic scents that smell great, check out our fragrance oils.
Soaping has never been so easy!!
Ingredients: Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Elaeis Guineensis (Palm) Oil, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, glycerin, Avena sativa (oatmeal), Purified Water, *Sodium Hydroxide, Sorbitol, Sorbitan Oleate, and Oat Protein.
*Please note that when soap is made by natural methods, you MUST use sodium hydroxide. There just isn’t really any other way to make a “soap.” Once the bars have been made, sodium hydroxide is no longer found in them, due to the reaction it made with the oils to create “soap.”
