Liquid Concentrate Base - Concentrated soap base that can be diluted with water! Although you can dilute it by as much as 5 parts water to 1 part soap we have found that 3 parts water to 1 part soap is the best ratio for most products. Create multiple products from this single base; bubble bath, shower gel, shampoo, hand soap, and more! Easily thicken your diluted base with salt water.

I made a batch of soap but it didn't thicken using salt water. I used 3:1 but it was kind of watery. There isn't really any instruction on how to use this product. With the CP soaps there are tables showing how much oil and lye based on batch size but there isn't anything for this. Do you have a video or other how tos like you do for CP and MP?
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Allison! I'm glad you think our Liquid Soap Concentrate Base seems good! Though, I'm sorry it didn't thicken up with a salt solution. When you add a salt solution to your soap it can take a while to finish thickening, even beyond 24 hours! You also may not have used enough salt. We recommend using .5 oz. table salt (very important it be plain table salt, just the cheap stuff) dissolved in 1.5 oz. distilled (warm) water. We use about 12 ml of the salt solution in 16 oz. to get a very thick soap. We don't have any videos or tutorials on this product as it is a base, but checkout our Champagne Bubble Bath tutorial we made using this product!
I like the soap - the consistency is nice - easy to regulate. But my soap always turns pink after awhile, due to the fragrance added. How can I avoid this?
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Cheryl! I'm so glad you like our Liquid Soap Concentrate Base! Though, I'm sorry you're having problems with discoloration. Fragrance Oils can definitely discolor soap, including liquid soap. I will email you personally to help troubleshoot!
Do you have a go-to shower gel recipe that you'd recommend using this with? I'm looking for something thicker like hand soap, not runny.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Lauren! We do not have a go to shower gel recipe. Though you can easily thicken your diluted soap base with a salt water solution or product such as Liquid Crothix. I will email you personally to discuss this further.
I followed the ratio on the mixing and my soap keeps splitting up I get a clear mix under my bottle after it sits for a while. I have to keep shaking the bottle to mix it up again. What is going wrong with it . It look like water is sitting at the bottom.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Elsa! I'm so sorry you're having problems working with this base. Fragrance oils can be really tricky to incorporate in liquid soaps and often this kind of separation is due to the fragrance. I will email you personally to help troubleshoot!
I'm having difficulty thickening this with salt water, but I have not worked with sulfates before so I probably just keep adding too much salt all at once. LOL. The suds is very ample and long lasting in a bubble bath. The skin feel is fantastic. Even diluted, this base does a great job of suspending glitter and taking fragrance, which is amazing imho! Thank you very much for making such a wonderful product, Bramble Berry! I'm happy that I bought the full gallon size and I'm looking forward to continued experimentation with it.
Reply from Bramble BerryHi Erin! I'm so glad you like this base! To thicken this base with salt water, you can add .5 oz. of regular table salt (very important to use regular table salt) to 1.5 oz. of warm distilled water. Then, mix well and add that to your base after you've added fragrance. We found about 12 mL of the salt solution in 1 lb. of base created a nice thick soap. You can also thicken this soap by adding less water to dilute it. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this more!
