Don't be deceived
I purchased 10 lbs unwrapped of this product and yes, it was unwrapped but it also came in 6 very uneven chunks. Accustomed to purchasing bases, even on the wholesale level, from other companies and receiving nice even 1 or 2 lb blocks, imagine my surprise! I was expecting this item to arrived as depicted in the photograph and received instead six pieces that ranged from tiny to huge, all uneven. They looked like mill end or scrap cuts, not what I expected when paying for a quality base. Furthermore, I only received 8 lbs 10 oz of this base instead of the expected 10. I was shorted more than 1 lb!

Thank you for your note. I’m so sorry that you were shorted. I’ll email you to get more information and get your soap out to you or a refund for what you were shorted. As noted in the description of the item, the 10 pounds of soap is unwrapped. Typically, the pieces end up being around 2.5 to 3 pounds but if the soap is close to the end of the box, some of the pieces may be smaller than others. The good news is that it all melts down the same no matter what size it started with. Look for my note regarding your shortage and thank you for your review.

Shea Melt & Pour
I just tried making some soap with this base.First off what I got certainly doesn't look like the picture you show of the base. Mine is all crumbly and very oily.I used a little on my hands to see if it would lather and it is like using pure oil. It certainly didn't lather and I could hardly wash it off. I am very disappointed with this base. I can't use it for soap for sure. Did I maybe get sent the wrong thing like maybe pure shea butter or some other oil type stuff? I need a base that at least has a little lather. I plan on using it for newborn soap. HELP!

Wonderful lather
I ordered this M&P soap base when I saw the activated bamboo charcoal and rose clay spa bars and had to try it myself. I enjoy making CP soap, but I like to play with M&P and this shea butter (and the honey version) really elevates M&P in my eyes.

Might have caused itching
I have bought from bramble berry before and used the goat's milk melt and pour and it was great but this time I decided to try the Shea melt and pour and gave some sample soaps to my friends. Two of them have complained of itching. I also have experienced itching. I'm wondering if one of the ingredients in the base is causing that or is it something else. I or my friends didn't experience that with the Goat. Just wondering.....

Hi Narissa, thanks for taking the time to leave feedback on this product. Our bases are made with high quality ingredients, but it is possible that an individual could have a reaction to a specific ingredient. The ingredients for this base are listed on the product page. If fragrance or any other ingredient was added to this base, it's possible this may be causing the reaction as well. I hope this helps, thanks again for your feedback.

Too hard, too quick
I only rate it a 3 because it didn't do what I wanted it to do. I know it's a great product because everything I buy from here is great. I made cupcake bath fizzies and I used M & P, bath whip, and cocoa butter for the frosting. It became hard so quick and I was unable to pipe, My cocoa butter frosting worked excellent. How can I use the M & P without the meringue to make the frosting useful, I want a 100% useful product but yet stay hard and not melt in hot weather like cocoa butter or Shea butter. Please Help..... Thank you Shanika

Hi Shanika! We are so glad you were able to try out our Shea Melt and Pour Base, it really does give such a lovely lather. It is also the general nature of melt and pour soaps to harden up faster than a cold process recipe would. If you want an all-natural soap top, we would recommend trying out cold process, and here is a great Shea Butter Cold Process Recipe that we just love. You can also try out our bath bomb cupcake frosting recipes that work really well for us and pipe just fabulous!
