We ask our first-time buyers to test our soap base by purchasing the 1 pound size.
The palm oil is RSPO certified sustainably sourced.
Sweating may occur if so let soap set out to "cure" for up to a week. Once sweating is gone, wrapping will not be necessary.
Directions: Carefully slice soap base into small 1" pieces and place in a microwave-safe container. Heat on low at 30-second intervals. Stir between intervals until liquid. Handle hot soap carefully as it may burn the skin. Soap can also be melted in a double boiler which is the preferred method to get an even melt.
Depending on how strong you like your scented soap to be – a general rule of thumb or guideline is roughly 1 teaspoon (or more) per pound of soap. If using essential oils or fragrance oils – the strength of the scents vary from oil to oil. Try starting with 1 teaspoon per pound of soap base and work your way up.
Note: If the essential oil or fragrance oil has a colour to it – may give a slight colour or hue to the soap.
MOLD: Stir in your desired colour,& scent, and skin safe additives. Pour into a mold. We recommend not filling the mold to the top for easier release. Spritz soap surface with rubbing alcohol to remove bubbles. Let cool until hard. solidified
CAUTION: Melted soap is hot! For ages 15 and older
An all natural clear melt and pour soap base. Make fun and interesting soap with this! Our most popular M&P base. Do not overheat or microwave soap bases as high heat will ruin the lather and make the soap brittle. Glycerin soap should be packaged immediately after removing them from molds to avoid condensation on the bar. Fingerprints can be removed from soap with a little alcohol.

The Manufacturing Process:
- The manufacturing process of SFIC Natural Melt & Pour Soap Bases is similar to how soap makers have produced soap for hundreds of years.
- The manufacturer makes the soap in the "hot process" method, by means of a reaction of the vegetable oils together with the alkali in large vessels, "cooked" until completion.
- During this "cooking" process they can then add all sorts of ingredients such as butters, additional oils, extracts, exfoliants, and a variety of other ingredients.
- The finished product is then poured into molds and allowed to cool. Once solidified, the finished Melt & Pour Soap is cut into blocks and ready for crafters to melt down and work with, adding fragrances, colours, exfoliates, using decorative molds and techniques to make their own unique soap creations!
