I was doubtful at first...

Anyone who's made homemade liquid soap knows that it's a looong process, that takes a few days for a complete product. I tried a soap base from another company that I normally buy my additives from, and it was so drying, and ended up having separation issues (something I've never had with liquid soap...ever), and I normally love all of their products. Well I came across Bramble Berry using the SoapCalc and decided to try them out, and tried a few additives first, and some fragrances. I LOVED everything I got, and the FO were better than what I got from my normal place! So I decided to give the paste a shot too because I knew they obviously had superior products, but liquid soap is a tricky thing to work with so I was still a little leery. I added just the paste to my crockpot along with their cocoa butter pellets (about 2 Tbs) and melted the cocoa butter away from the paste and then mixed together (as the pieces that were in the paste wanted to take FOREVER to melt). While this was melting in my crockpot, I had some distilled water boiling (about 85oz), then I added it to the paste. It took a few hours to fully melt, with occasional stirring, and I added some glycerine (about 1.5 cups), along with a little colloidal oatmeal, some silk, and my fragrance (oatmeal and honey...yum), and mixed really well. By then, it was still too thin for my taste, as I like a thick soap, so I added the Crothix from BB (I posted a review about that as well), and it thickened right up! This soap feels exactly like the soap I make myself, if not better! I'll definitely be buying this again! Thank you for this BB, you've cut work time in half for me!

Dilution

If I wanted to make 1 gallon of Body Wash how much water do I add and How much Soap Paste do I add? I'm bad at math. lol Also how much Shea Butter & Vanilla infused Olive Oil should I add without compromising the lather.

Help

I purchased this product because it says it's high sudsing, however I'm not getting any suds at all. What am I doing wrong? I thickened it with a salt solution as recommended, added fragrance and it feels more like an oily lotion then soap. It is still fairly thin and there's absolutely Zero suds. Can I add something to it to add bubbles??

Hi Marsee! I'm sorry you had that experience. We love the High Sudsing and it is the liquid soap we recommend with the highest lather. Fragrance oils can definitely be a bit tricky when it comes to liquid soap, depending on the scent it can thin out your soap or even reduce the lather at times. The lather can also be affected by your dilution ratio of water to paste. For more information check out our How to Use and Thicken Liquid Soap Base blog post.

Not working, is it me?

I'm not sure if I'm the problem but I've tried to make this a few times without luck. But I"m wondering what the PH of the finished product is. Could you please let me know? Thanks.

Tina from Bramble Berry replies...
Hi Suzanne! I'm sorry you're having trouble with this paste. The High Sudsing Liquid Soap Paste is an already finished liquid soap paste that just needs to be diluted with distilled water. The recommended dilutions is 4:1 though if you end up wanting the soap thicker after dilution you can do so with a simple salt solution! If you're looking for a more finished soap base you make prefer our Liquid Soap Concentrate. Customer service has contact you directly to help troubleshoot :-)

Preservatives?

Do I need to add preservatives after I dilute this base ?
