I purchased this product because it says it's high sudsing, however I'm not getting any suds at all. What am I doing wrong? I thickened it with a salt solution as recommended, added fragrance and it feels more like an oily lotion then soap. It is still fairly thin and there's absolutely Zero suds. Can I add something to it to add bubbles??

Hi Marsee! I'm sorry you had that experience. We love the High Sudsing and it is the liquid soap we recommend with the highest lather. Fragrance oils can definitely be a bit tricky when it comes to liquid soap, depending on the scent it can thin out your soap or even reduce the lather at times. The lather can also be affected by your dilution ratio of water to paste. For more information check out our How to Use and Thicken Liquid Soap Base blog post.

Not working, is it me?

I'm not sure if I'm the problem but I've tried to make this a few times without luck. But I"m wondering what the PH of the finished product is. Could you please let me know? Thanks.

Hi Suzanne! I'm sorry you're having trouble with this paste. The High Sudsing Liquid Soap Paste is an already finished liquid soap paste that just needs to be diluted with distilled water. The recommended dilutions is 4:1 though if you end up wanting the soap thicker after dilution you can do so with a simple salt solution! If you're looking for a more finished soap base you make prefer our Liquid Soap Concentrate. Customer service has contact you directly to help troubleshoot :-)


Do I need to add preservatives after I dilute this base ?

Just ok

This was the first product I've been dissapointed with. It's ok, but even a salt solution doesn't thicken it much. I've ended up just using less of a dilution because it is very watery. It also takes far too long for my purposes even though it's an ok liquid soap once done. I won't be purchasing it again.

Hi Mary! I'm sorry you were disappointed in this product! We love the High Sudsing Liquid Soap Paste and recommend diluting at 4:1 (4 parts water, 1 part paste). If you're looking for a thicker formula, you can start with a lower dilution rate, like 3:1. We found a simple 20% salt water solution works great to help thicken the final product, but it's very important to use regular table salt. For other thickening options you can try Borax at a 0.1% usage rate or Liquid Crothix at 1-8%. This post has more information on how to thicken liquid soap.

Love this!

I dilute it at 3:1, thicken it with salt solution and get lots of suds. One squirt is all it takes for a hand washing. For foamer pumps, I dilute it much more (at least 6:1). The shampoo I make with this makes my hair so soft and clean. I don't need to wash it as often.
