All Natural Castile Liquid Soap Base - This old world castile soap base is exclusively made from olive oil and is known for its gentle cleansing and light lather. This soap is also suitable for babies and those with sensitive skin. Use it as is or thicken it up with a simple table salt water solution.
Special Tip: You can also use .5 oz. table salt (very important it be plain table salt, just the cheap stuff) dissolved in 1.5 oz. distilled (warm) water to naturally thicken the soap prior to adding fragrance. We use about 12 ml of the salt solution in 16 oz. to get a very thick soap. Give it a try!Ingredients: Common Name: Aqua/Water/Eau, Olive Oil, Glycerin, Potassium HydroxideBotanical Name: Aqua/Water/Eau, Olea Europaea Oil, Glycerin, Potassium Hydroxide
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Melissa! I'm sorry you were disappointed in this base. I can assure you that it is not rancid! While castile soaps do have a distinctive smell because of all that olive oil we found it was easily covered by fragrance or essential oils.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Maria! For liquid soap you would generally follow the rules as you would for Cold Process soap. You can see how to do that in our How to Label Cold Process Soap blog post. There are 2 ways to label your soap, one is the final soap, which is the saponfied, unsaponfied oils and any additives. This is what we chose to use for our liquid soap. This means that you could label yours just as ours is on the product page, with the addition to any color or fragrance you use!
Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Sarah! I would not recommend adding goat milk to our Natural Castile Liquid Soap Base. Normally when making a goat milk soap it would be part of the saponification process, rather than being added after the soap is made. Adding goat milk to a soap base or paste would be like adding the milk to a partially made soap. It would most likely go rancid in your product. I will email you personally to discuss this further!
