Melt and Pour Soap Base
SFIC Melt and Pour soap base may come as individually wrapped pounds or larger pieces. Cases will generally be cut-ups in multi pound sizes. If we run out of cut-ups you may get a case of individually wrapped pounds. Wrapped cases may be requested for an additional fee.
***NOTE***Melt and Pour Soap base may arrive a bit brittle due to freezing in transport. The base will may be fine with regular use. You should test a small amount before making a larger batch by heating in the microwave and cutting. If brittle -
If you are making single pour soap bars (not cutting them later like a loaf) you can just use as is and the finished bar will be harder than normal/last longer. To soften the soap to bring it back to how it was originally add water or glycerine at about 3-5% and it should come back to previous texture. If you are cutting loaves it is best to add 7% or more to make sure that they will slice nicely. You can use an even higher amount but test prior to putting in colors/fragrance since you can always remelt add more soap etc. Remember adding more glycerine will increase sweating but also makes a more moisturizing soap.
