Liquid Concentrate Base - Concentrated soap base that can be diluted with water! Although you can dilute it by as much as 5 parts water to 1 part soap we have found that 3 parts water to 1 part soap is the best ratio for most products. Create multiple products from this single base; bubble bath, shower gel, shampoo, hand soap, and more! Easily thicken your diluted base with salt water.

Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Allison! I'm glad you think our Liquid Soap Concentrate Base seems good! Though, I'm sorry it didn't thicken up with a salt solution. When you add a salt solution to your soap it can take a while to finish thickening, even beyond 24 hours! You also may not have used enough salt. We recommend using .5 oz. table salt (very important it be plain table salt, just the cheap stuff) dissolved in 1.5 oz. distilled (warm) water. We use about 12 ml of the salt solution in 16 oz. to get a very thick soap. We don't have any videos or tutorials on this product as it is a base, but checkout our Champagne Bubble Bath tutorial we made using this product!
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Cheryl! I'm so glad you like our Liquid Soap Concentrate Base! Though, I'm sorry you're having problems with discoloration. Fragrance Oils can definitely discolor soap, including liquid soap. I will email you personally to help troubleshoot!
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Lauren! We do not have a go to shower gel recipe. Though you can easily thicken your diluted soap base with a salt water solution or product such as Liquid Crothix. I will email you personally to discuss this further.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Elsa! I'm so sorry you're having problems working with this base. Fragrance oils can be really tricky to incorporate in liquid soaps and often this kind of separation is due to the fragrance. I will email you personally to help troubleshoot!
Reply from Bramble BerryHi Erin! I'm so glad you like this base! To thicken this base with salt water, you can add .5 oz. of regular table salt (very important to use regular table salt) to 1.5 oz. of warm distilled water. Then, mix well and add that to your base after you've added fragrance. We found about 12 mL of the salt solution in 1 lb. of base created a nice thick soap. You can also thicken this soap by adding less water to dilute it. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this more!
