soap base: which to choose, TOP 3 soap bases

Soap base is the basic ingredient of any soap. This is, in fact, a finished soap that does not contain odor and color. Soap base is the best option for beginner soap makers or those who want to save valuable time and increase their chances of success.


Now there are different soap bases. Soap base is divided into solid, creamy and liquid. In the previous article on soap making, we listed all the available solid soap bases that we have specifically on our site.


One of many benefits of the variety of melt and pour soap bases is the ability to choose a soap base with ingredients that benefit your skin type or what results you want.


Let's talk today about the TOP 3 soap bases. Go!


1. Goat's Milk soap base:

Goat milk soap base is a soft white soap that is blended with real goat milk. It is a soap base with nourishing vitamins, proteins, and minerals for the skin. It effectively dissolves and doesn't get yellow even at high temperatures. With this base, you can create a cosmetic soap for the body, hands, or face. It is suitable even for children and people with sensitive skin, but it will be especially useful for fading and mature skin. And soap colorants generally come out pastel when added to goat milk soap.



2. Ultra Clear soap base:

The difference is, unlike adding goat milk, ultra clear is added to create a clear soap base. This ultra clear soap base is perfect for adding pressed flowers, and it’s perfect for coloring too. The base well absorbs base oils, fragrances and dyes, does not form lumps.

Only water-soluble oils should be added to ultra clear bases. So you keep the transparency of the final product, which is especially important for this base. Glycerin (another name for this soap base) is a natural humectant that draws water to the skin and is suitable for all skin types. Glycerin is a natural emollient, it draws dampness from the air to profit skin’s health.


3. White soap base:

Solid white mass, practically odorless and glossy white. White soap is traditionally used to help clean the skin, remove all the dirt, dust and dead cells. It helps clear rashes, acne, blemishes, and irritations. Vitamins in white soap can help to protect and nourish the skin, stimulate skin cell regeneration, promote fresh glow and boost the skin.


All these soap bases are natural, well melt and pour. Also characterized by good plasticity and excellent foaming.
