Best Soap Lather

I love this rebatch! I have used some of the grated soap in my m&p which improved that lather. I have used it with the recommended amount of water but was not pleased with the texture. The next time I used 1/2 cup of goa tmilk and heated it in a double boiler until it was very liquid like and blasted it with my stick mixer. It took several hours in the double boiler and about 3 weeks to cure until it was solid enough to use. It was worth it! None of my cp soaps have such a creamy lather.

Love This Product

I've been using this base for a few months and loves how it turns out and so do my customers! I actually use 3/4 cup of water in a low crock pot for 1 1/2 hours and then use a stick blender till smooth. I then add coloring using blender and then lightly stir in fragrance. It does take a couple of weeks to cure, but the end result is pretty smooth and I love how it feels on my skin!

Once I got the learning curve down it's wonderful!

This was the very first time for making any kind of soap for me. Once I got the learning curve down it turned out great! I really like this soap. It does come out a bit rougher in appearance than other homemade soap (I have friends who make CP) but for my own sue that's fine! I ended up making it best in my crockpot on low. I added about 1/3 cup distilled water to 2 pounds of base and let it go. Took about 2 hours and it was perfect. Poured it into molds and it was hard enough to use the next day! I also added 3 TBSP of coconut cream fragrance after it melted. It was not a strong smell as I thought it would be but extremely nice.

Superb Value!

Buying the pre-grated rebatch is cheaper than buying just the ingredients, not to mention the time involved in grating all that soap! I use it mostly for those FOs that tend to accelerate trace, morph or otherwise don't behave in CP. I have found that the secret is to follow BBs advise and ONLY add a couple of Tbs of water. It doesn't seem like enough, but trust me, it is. Just be patient and wait for it to all melt and you won't be disappointed.

It's different

I'm a glycerin girl. I'll admit it... but I thought I would give this a try and I really like it, but I'm actually slightly disappointed with the outcome. I feel like everything ends up looking like clay, and I found when melting it, even with the added water, that when melted, it seemed more gelatinous than I was expecting. I couldn't get it to a point where it was 'like mashed potatoes'.... it was more like ground meat when you're making meatballs... which would have been great if I wanted to make soap animals or something. The formula of the soap though was very good, as I did use the extra bits to try out and see how it felt.

Hi Samantha! I'm sorry this base wasn't your favorite. In our tests and recipes, we've found these bases have the consistency of mashed potatoes when they're melted, as seen in the How to Make Rebatch Soap video on Soap Queen TV. Our bases work best when they're used within two months. Because they're so fresh, they only need about 1 Tbsp. of liquid or so. I'll be emailing you personally to talk more!
