Comments: I am a vegetarian and so I appreciate that this soap is made from a vegetable base, not animal fats. It's easy to use but I find that it leaves a waxy feel on your skin after washing when the skin is still wet. However, the waxy feel goes away when the skin is dry and is a wonderfully moisturizing soap.
FNWL Response: That's a really interesting observation Alison! I use soaps that I make from our M&P bases on a nearly daily basis and haven't noticed a waxy feel myself. I wonder if the way that you heat the base (double boiler is recommended) or the duration that it's heated (please don't overcook it) or any other additives that you include in your soap may be contributing.

Comments: I really like this soap base.
"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
