Aloe Vera Melt and Pour - Our base has a full 5% Aloe Vera Gel in it. Aloe Vera Gel is known for its incredible moisturizing properties. Real Aloe Vera gel is added to our popular original clear base (which gives it a slightly greenish tint) - making a very soothing and cleansing base.

When did propylene glycol become part of the ingredients list? Now I'm not so thrilled about this soap anymore. Still feels nice but another added chemical to a MP base that was the most natural I've seen...ugh.
Kelsey from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Carolyn! There has always been propylene glycol in the base. In the past, SFIC determined it was a processing aid and therefore did not need ingredient listing. SFIC is committed to integrity and transparency in ingredient labeling and has decided to disclose the propylene glycol as an ingredient on the label to be with in full letter and spirit of compliance of the law. When SFIC made this change, we did too! As some people object to this derivation of chemicals, the propylene glycol used in our premium “as natural as we can make it” soap base is made entirely from vegetable glycerin, a wholly biodegradable and renewable material. If you're still not comfortable with that ingredient, we are currently testing a PG free base. If it does well in testing we will look at bringing it in. :)
This is my fav SFIC base (I've tried clear, cocoa, shea, OO, castile, shaving, LCP). Leaves my skin so soft and lathers great!
I have been using this base for a while now and truly like it. However did something change or did i misread, when did Propolyne Glycol become part of the ingredients?
While it does dew more than the other melt and pours I've tried by SFIC (honey, white, and clear), it is in my opinion very moisturizing. It is easy to work with, makes my hands soft and smells clean.
