Love This

This is a soap base NOT a concentrate or paste, so you should NOT DILUTE it. Several of the other soap bases had comments about diluting them and I didn't realize this one was not supposed to be diluted. Customer Service was a great help in figuring out why nothing was working. I thickened this soap base with the recommended .5 oz. salt to 1.5 oz. distilled water and it instantly thickened. I used iodized salt. Do a small test with your FOs and EOs as some will cause it to separate and become watery. I made a fantastic shower gel with the thickened base, but because it is castile, it naturally has a low lather. I simply used a shower puff with it and that created a huge, fluffy lather.

I give this 5 stars

I really like this natural castile soap. I wanted to make a foaming sugar and or salt scrub. I am still working on that...I discovered that this base is amazing for a foaming Pumice Scrub. I used it as a base for liquid body scrub recipe. I used some ground pumice and oil. I was really suprised by the amount of lather as I was expecting low suds. The consistency of the base is that of a light lotion. It cleans very well, it exfoliates and moisturizes very well and the lather is amazing. No salt water added. This is a really great product, its all natural with Olive oil... I love it and will buy over and over again...Thanks Brambleberry. also the bottle size that I received was big but the amount of soap was 16 oz which is what I paid for. **Update, I still give 5 stars, my batch separated and the consistency changed but the performance did not. It is still a wonderful pumice scrub and nothing is lost. The pumice rests at the bottom so it needs to be shaken. This is not a suspension base and it is also my first time using. So I did not know what to expect. I do now and I am very happy with it and I will buy and used it again.

This is perfect

It's exactly what I wanted for my business. Now I just need an easy way of getting it out of the 5gal buckets...

Not the Castile Soap I like

I purchased this product elsewhere initially but due to the fact I love Brambleberry I decided to reorder from you guys. Unfortunately I received the product and the container was not full and the bottles were not sealed. Also it did not work well for my body wash. I don't understand especially since I purchase the same product from a different company.

Hi Robbin! I'm sorry this product was not what you were expecting. This is our house Natural Castile Liquid Soap Base so you would have been unable to purchase it elsewhere. Our soap base is 100% castile soap made with just Olive Oil, Water and Potassium Hydroxide Lye so it does not have a high lather like other castiles. It is also definitely thinner than your average body wash as it is designed as more of a hand soap. Find out how in our How to Use and Thicken Liquid Soap Base blog post. For a thicker start you may prefer the Stephenson Suspending Body Wash which is designed for that.

Very disappointed

I ordered the soap base for the purpose of making shower gel. After following the directions of 3/1 plus the salt solution it had the consistency of water. After contacting Bramble Berry I was told to try 2/1 plus the salt mixture. That turned out fine.....until the next day. By then it had turned back to the watery mixture. Not sure what to do with this stuff at this point.

Hi Sheila! I'm sorry this product was not what you were looking for. We love our Natural Castile Liquid Soap Base though it is meant to be used as a liquid soap, not a thick shower gel. You can definitely play with the ratios to see if you can get a consistency closer to what you're looking for but it sounds like you may prefer something like our Stephenson Suspending Body Wash which is a thicker formula specifically designed for body washes!
