The Best I've Found
Looking for a free shipping deal I tried another vendors soap bases - they are horrible compared to BB's. This Aloe base is easy to work with, creamy and leaves skin feeling soft. The others I tried leave my skin feeling WAXY! Gross!! I looked at both bases ingredients list and that explained everything. BB is a quality list whereas the others are all chemical. No comparison - I'm back to BB for good.

So great!
I use in combination with shea, honey and olive oil m&p.They blend so nice together and hold and scents I mix in them. I always get a great lather and I feel so much more clean after showing with soap I have made. Because I have made soap using bases and scents from here for 8 years now, I don't have to buy any at the store. I have a good deal of people who now get my soaps because it makes them feel so much better. Thanks so much for offering this!

LOVE IT!!!!!!!
I melted some and added it to my Shea butter mixture. It easily blended in with the Shea butter and made my skin extra soft and smooth. I will be ordering more of this.

Wonderful Base!
This base was a great moisturizer and lathered well. I even added a little over a teaspoon of another moisturizing oil to it, and it held up perfectly! It also retained color and scent well because it is so neutral!

Doesn't just sweat, it pours
I am brand new to soaping so maybe I've done something wrong. However, this weekend I made some small batches of different kinds of M&P soaps to get a feel for how each one behaved and how to work with soaps. In the Aloe, I added a little Chamomile Extract (2%) and a fragrance. I expected some possible dew but this was not just dewey, this was nearly weeping. The soap was still beautiful when unmolded but did have to be wiped off before I could wrap it. I had split the batch in half and added 2g Bentonite Clay to the second half and this one did not weep as much but was still quite moist. I didn't have this issue with any of the other bases so I'm wondering if it was due to the Aloe. I still love the soap it made and of all the bases I tried (Goat's milk, honey, clear and shaving) it was the most moisturising without drying or being "squeaky". I will just need to do some playing to see what I can do to make it ooze liquid less.

Hi Jennifer! While sweating (aka: glycerin dew) is common in melt and pour soap, it sounds like you may have experienced an excessive amount. This can be caused by living in an area with high humidity. It can also be caused by adding extra ingredients, like oils, butters or extracts. This may be what is causing the excess sweating. I will be emailing you personally to help you troubleshoot what is causing the sweating. You may also find this blog post helpful, it has a thorough explanation of what glycerin dew is and how to avoid it.
