High Sudsing Liquid Soap Paste: This liquid soap paste is made up of Olive Oil and Castor Bean Oil, which makes it a great all purpose base that can be used as a laundry soap with other additives or as a bath and body shower soap. Two pounds of soap paste can make up to seven or eight pounds depending on your dilution rate.

Directions for Diluting: To dilute your soap paste, we recommend using a large pot so your pot will be half full when you're done. When the water is boiling, add the paste and stir thoroughly. Keep in mind that this can take up to eight hours depending on how much paste you're diluting at one time. When the soap paste is fully dissolved it's ready to use. Let the liquid soap cool and add your fragrance or colorant (or both). Recommended dilution rate 4:1.

Thickening Directions: Make a 20% salt water solution by adding regular Table Salt to warm water. Then slowly add the solution until you have your desired thickness. The soap will slowly thicken over an hour. You can also thicken the soap by using Borax at .1% usage rate or Crothix at a 1-8% usage rate.
Common Name:   Aqua/Water/Eau, Olive Oil, Castor Oil, Potassium Hydroxide

Good soap base
I bought this High Sudsing Liquid Soap Paste to make body wash. I follow the instruction from Kathy to try a little bit the first time. 5 oz paste and 20 oz. boiling water. I was able to get kind of a desired consistency with the water and salt. ( It need to be thicker) but there is no lather unless I put a lot on the palm of my hands. I don't know what I'm doing wrong ): I did put fragrance on it. Any suggestions? I want to make body wash. Thank you.

Love this, but one question
I love this product... suds up great and works well for a soap and body wash base. I do have a dilemma though... hoping someone can help me with. I am trying to make shampoo out of this base, however I cannot get the PH below 7.8 without destroying the base product. I have been using citric acid, in small amounts... but the lowest I can get the pH is about high 7's and I need to get into the 5 area. Too much citric acid destroys the oils and makes the soap unuseable. Any suggestions?

Easier dilution process
For smaller batches, I put 5 ounces of paste in Pyrex mixing pitcher / bowl and add 20 ounces of boiling water. Break larger pieces apart with a butter knife. After about 10 minutes, I put it in the microwave until it reaches another boil, take out, break pieces apart / stir. I repeat that process a couple of times and it is completely diluted ready to fill foamer bottles or dilute 4 to 1 again in spray bottles. Store left over portion in mason jar. Don't need to store large quantities of diluted product. Just make as needed.

A good soap.
It's makes a pretty good bath soap. Cleans and rinses off well. The dilution process can take a long time as they say so be prepared. I can't get it to stay thick for the life of me, though. It thickens when I add the salt solution but within a day or so, it goes liquidy again. Darndest thing. I plan to order some liquid Crothix as a workaround.

Great stuff, Great Price!
This stuff makes the best liquid soap for hand soap, etc. I had problems thickening it back up, but may be me. I just dilute it 4:1, and put in foamer bottles. Great deal when you price those name brand bottles of Castile soap.
