Moisturizing but a bit too soggy

I love all of Brambleberry's rebatch base as they are made very fresh and easy to work with, they are still warm and moist when delivered to me. However in recent years I catered to more and more eco conscious clientele and I only sell palm free soaps in my shop now, I wish Brambleberry would bring back the palm free version as this castile soap is too soggy. It is moisturizing and gentle enough but can become a gluey mess. I had to stop ordering after receiving several complaints about it.

Hi Louise! I'm so glad you love our Rebatch Bases, finding them fresh and easy to use! Though you're right, while castile soap is super gentle and moisturizing it is a softer soap and takes a longer cure time to become a harder soap. Adding less water when you melt down the soap can help as well. I will definitely pass along your feedback for a new palm-free formula as well :-)

Too much waste

I made Rebatch soap many years ago, using a different method (crockpot) which worked OK. I switched to melt and pour, but missed the consistency of "real" soap. I tried this, but ended up with a huge mess. I followed instructions, double zip-loc bags,etc., but the soap never completely melted. The bags, however, did. By the time I was supposed to neatly trim off the corner and pipe the soap into molds, I got about two bars' worth. Everything else stayed in the bag and then the trash. :(. The two bars I got are nice, but given the lack of satisfaction I think I will take the plunge and actually try my hand at cold process soap.

Rich & Fabulous!

I add this to my M&P castile soap base and my soap comes out AWESOME!!! My friends & family love it, and my customers keep coming back for its richness. Takes scent beautifully! Leaves my skin so soft, it's like silk, and the smell is just "clean". FYI, if you buy too much, keep the extra in the freezer as it will go bad otherwise after a few months. I keep the batch I'm working with in the fridge & the rest in the freezer. Love it!

Great introduction to soap

I was nervous to start out with cold process soap-making. I decided to do rebatch soap to get my feet wet. The soap turned out awesome!

Good soap!

I purchased 25 lbs of this base, as I have found it to be more economical to purchase the base then make it myself from grocery store ingredients. I do not have room or need for bulk quantities of oils and lye. My only complaint is that Brambleberry is calling it "rebatch". "Rebatch" is a poor label for a fine Hand Milled Soap! I use the castille base to make hand milled goat milk soap, so obviously I don't follow the instructions to avoid adding liquid. I use around 4oz milk to 14oz soap. (I have found that the weight of the milk does not contribute to the weight of the final bar.)
