Melt & Pour Soap Base Storage Tips and Guidelines
The shelf life for our 2 lb. Melt and Pour Soap Bases is 1-2 years. If you do not plan to immediately use your Melt and Pour Soap Bases after purchase, we encourage you to store them in an air-tight plastic storage container. This will ensure that your soap doesn't dry out prematurely.
If possible, store your melt and pour soap in a cool, dry location.
Heating Tip: Although not a storage tip, we want to emphasize that overheating our microwaving soap bases at high heat will ruin the lather and make the soap brittle. We strongly encourage you to heat the base at very low heat for only as long as it takes to melt the soap. Using a double boiler or double boiler insert is ideal.
"I use (and love, love, love!) your Pearlesecent Micas which get me compliments all the time, from coworkers to makeup artists at swanky cosmetic counters. It's cool because people are always asking me where I bought my eyeshadow and it's satisfying to say, "I didn't buy it-- I made it!" As someone with a darker-than-medium skin tone, it's great to be able to blend my own colours that actually show up on me, e.g., 1 part Golden Glow to 1 part Matte Orange = "Yummy Peach"."
