awesome base

totally in love with this base from the moment it was recommended to me. i always thought to make soap jellies on my own I would have to find carrageenan powder and mix with glycerin and do a bunch of other nonsense that seemed overly complicated. nope! this stuff works like a dream! i melt in microwave in 30 second bursts for about 5 minutes, spraying the top with alcohol before and after stirring to kill the bubbles and make sure when it comes time to pour that I always heat for another 10-15 seconds between containers. I wish I could buy this in the 35lb bucket!

My Favorite

After reading some negative reviews, I was hesitant to buy this product, but I'm glad I did. It's so fun! I melted it in a pot on the stove on low heat. It does take a while to liquefy. I mixed my colors and fragrances together, separately and added them to the mix once it was liquid. Don't stir it too much and don't use a whisk. You don't want to incorporate too much air into the mix. I love this base. It turned out exactly how I wanted.

Worst base I've ever tried in 15+ years of soaping.

This made me so sad I actually cried. I was really excited to add jellies to my line & even after reading the reviews I tried it. 1st attempt was in the microwave. Heated slowly as suggested but after 20 mins it never liquified enough to even pour, let alone add color or fragrance. I threw that mess out & tried again in a double boiler. After 2 hours it still never liquified!! I recently switched to Brambleberry for all of my supplies & absolutely LOVE them, but this is a SERIOUS failure to have as part of their line. Will never purchase again & recommend no one else waste their time, money or patience. 😢

Because of the consistency of the Stephenson Jelly Melt and Pour it will not melt completely to liquid when heating it up. To see an example of working with this soap and how it looks when melted check out our Creepy Crawly Spider Soap Jellies tutorial.

Giggly Fun

I purchased this base just to test it out- and the results were super fun. Lathers great and is also great for shaving. Everyone I made soap for with this base raved about how much fun it was. Will definitely be purchasing again :)

Omg so fun!

I giggled the entire time I was cutting this base up! It does take a long time to melt, but it is well worth the wait. I started out with a double boil, but it never would melt all of the way, so I placed it in the microwave for 30 seconds, and it finished melting. After reading all of the reviews, I thought I would try what Anne Marie did with the solid sugar scrub, and place the color and fragrance in before melting, which worked great. I don't see any way to keep bubbles out, so if your looking for perfectly clear soap, then I'd look elsewhere. The jiggle is the fun part, so the bubbles don't bother me.
