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.

Issue with foaming dispenser

I made this 4:1 as suggested. The foaming dispenser is gumming up and making a mess after a few uses. Am I to dilute further to use a foaming dispenser (would I need preservative then?)? Not gumming up with the regular liquid soap dispenser at all. Thanks. I like the sudsing and cleansing properties of this base.

What colorant

Hello! I'm hoping to buy this product to use to make body wash, what type of colorant should I use? Thanks!

Hi Sarah! I would recommend using our Basic or Low pH LabColors to color your liquid soap. Because they are water based they will mix in easier and will not settle to the bottom as a powdered colorant would. For more information on how to use LabColors check our Diluting Bramble Berry LabColors blog post.
