Bases Bath & Body Bases Bath & Body - (You Are Here - P17658)

Additional Information
Our Liquid Glycerin Soap Base is odor-free and crystal clear. It provides excellent lather and can be used as a liquid hand soap, base for foamers, body wash or bubble bath. Made with 99.7% Pure Certified Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, one of the best moisture-carrying vehicles used in cosmetics formulations. Glycerin is a humectant that absorbs water from the air, resulting in a base that hydrates and feels great.

This is a cold mix base so no heating is required and it is super easy to create your own liquid soap. Just add scent or other additives directly to the test batch of base and hand stir at room temperature with a spatula.

Directions & Ingredients
International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients (INCI):
Deionized Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate (derived from Coconut and Palm oil), Glycerin, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Cocamide DIPA, Citric Acid, Sodium Chloride, Tetrasodium EDTA, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone

Use unscented (as-is) or add fragrance or essential oils at a ratio up to 1%. It may be possible to load up to 3% with fragrance but all fragrances and essential oils will react different so thorough testing in small batches is always recommended to ensure compatibility.

For every 1 oz of base, add 7 drops of fragrance or essential oil and that should equal 1%. The same is true for extracts and other additives. With infinite ingredient combinations, some may require a solubilizer and others may not. We have found that 2% is the "magic number" with additives. Again, compatibility testing in small batches is key.

Wait a minimum of 24 hours (preferably longer) as some issues don't surface right away. Things to watch for are loss of viscosity, beading of oils not solubilizing (which can often be fixed by adding solubilizer), and clusters of milky cloudiness.

Preserve extracts (if they are not already preserved) before adding to base to avoid contamination.

Add color by using our liquid colorants.

If thickening is desired, the recommendation is to make a solution of 20% salt to 80% deionized water and slowly add that to the base in a small test batch. Include appropriate amount of preservative. It is important to not overload it with salt, or it will collapse so it is recommended to test in a 2-4 oz batch by adding 1 drop solution, mix well and see what happens. If there will be any major issues it will usually show overnight.

I Recommend This Product!
"Trusted Review..."
COMMENTS:  Oh I absolutely love this base. It has no smell takes fragrance easily, but best of all it really can be used as bubble bath. I am the bubble bath connoisseur of bubble bath. This suds like crazy nothing to add but fragrance oil. Also works great as a shower gel. It's amazing so if someone wants bubble bath this is it, if they want shower gel, this is it. I love it!
