Melt & Pour Soap Bases

Colored | Specialty | Regular

Soap making with our quality melt and pour soap bases is easy, convenient, and doesn't require the use of caustic lye. We offer a nice selection of luxurious specialty bases including cocoa butter, shea butter, goat's milk, honey and aloe vera. We also offer coconut bases including our colored transparent bases. All of our bases are unscented except for our Honey Melt & Pour Base. It possesses the beautiful aroma of raw honey.

Our formulations are gentle on the skin and do not contain unnecessary preservatives. We have avoided the use of harsh chemicals to the extent possible. Our gentle bases should not be microwaved or overheated as high heat will reduce the quantity of lather that the soap makes.

Our bases are sold in 2 pound blocks. Each block is 1" thick and has perforated lines that make it easy to cut the block into small cubes for more even melting.

We also offer a large selection of soap molds that are perfect to use with our melt and pour soap bases. Please see the Molds category of our Equipment section for a listing of our molds.

The colors, shapes, textures and styles of the soaps that you can make with our melt and pour soap bases is unlimited. For wonderful ideas, recipes and tips complete with vivid photographs, we recommend the 136-page book Melt & Mold Soap Crafting by C. Kaila Westerman. You can find this book within the Bookstore section of our site.

Our Melt & Pour Soapmaking Kit makes it easy learn Melt & Pour Soapmaking. It contains two melt & pour soap bases, two molds, six fragrance oils, six colorants, and the book Melt & Mold Soap Crafting.

Basic Melt and Pour Soap Making Steps:
To make melt and pour soap, cut your chosen soap base into cubes using the perforated grid on the block as a guideline. Each cut cube is approximately 1 ounce. Heat water to boiling in the bottom pot of a double boiler. Then, reduce heat to simmer. In the top pot of the boiler, add the soap cubes. Stir frequently until they have melted. Then add any desired colorant, clays or other additives (except for solid ingredients and essential/fragrance oils), and stir until well incorporated. Immediately remove your melted soap from of the stove, and let it cool slightly. Stir the soap frequently as it cools. Add your desired fragrance, and stir well. It's best that you wait until the soap has cooled before adding essential or fragrance oils so that the oils don't evaporate before the soap cools. After the soap has cooled slightly, it can be poured into molds. Your soap should be ready to unmold within 2 hours.

Tips:
Preservatives do not need to be added to your soap unless you are using milk, fruit or other fragile ingredients. Use about .5 - 1 oz. fragrance oil or .5 oz. of essential oil per pound of soap. You will need to experiment with the amount of fragrance or essential oil to add as it can vary depending on the oil's aromatic strength. Clays can be used as natural colorants. Dry ingredients such as clays, oatmeal, herbs or fruit seeds should be added at a rate of about 1 tablespoon per lb. of soap. This base will not suspend heavy particles, so try to add solid ingredients when the soap has cooled slightly. Do not overheat or microwave soap bases as high heat will ruin the lather and make the soap brittle. Glycerin soaps should be packaged immediately after removing them from molds to avoid condensation on the bar. Fingerprints can be removed from soap with a little bit of alcohol.

Customer Testimonial

"I just came home this morning from spending a week in Iceland. While there, I enjoyed time in their natural hot springs and experienced first hand the healing properties of their salt-water geothermal pools. I immediately went to FromNatureWithLove.com to see what salts you have to choose from. I knew that you'd have Dead Sea salts and hoped that if I bought them I'd get similar results. What I found astounded me (yet, it's FNWL, so I really shouldn't be surprised that you had it). You have Iceland's wonderful salts! As if I needed another reason to love you! Keep up the UNBELIEVABLY WONDERFUL work!"
