Crystal ABS

This new Crystal ABS is a vegetable based Melt and Pour Soap base, made using natural, exotic shea butter and raw African black soap from Ghana. SLS and SLES-free, this soap base is super emollient, and soothes and cleanses your skin with this wonderful combination.

Glycerin is a natural emollient, a by-product of soapmaking, which draws moisture out of humid air to benefit the skin. It cleanses without stripping or upsetting the delicate natural pH balance necessary for soft, healthy looking skin. Even with the use of rich botanic butters, our soap rinses clean and leaves no soapy film behind. All our soap bases are produced with high-quality raw materials to form a luxurious lather.

Usage: A two-pound brick can make between 10 - 20 soaps, depending on the size of the soap you’re trying to make.


• Dark brown colour

• Fantastic lather

• Helps with dry skin

• High in natural emollients

• Unscented providing an excellent base for fragrance

Key Ingredients:

Shea Butter

African Black Soap

Coconut Oil


Caution: When making soaps it is good to remember that the Melt & Pour soap bases contain water as part of the formula, so if they are left exposed to the atmosphere, the water will evaporate and the bar of soap will shrink. We therefore recommend fully wrapping the soap bar as soon as it is poured, cooled and dry to minimize or eliminate any shrinkage.

A great soap base for sensitive and problem-prone skin. Lathers really well and is super moisturising with some vegetable glycerin or even sodium PCA (or sodium lactate). I always have at least 2-3 bricks on hand. Thanks NDA!

LOVE IT! Rich ladder, interesting brownish color... Makes a perfect man soap if needed ( better then a pink one hey? ) Played with FO Ocean and HE Bergamote to enhance the agrumes sent.

Wow- I am really excited about this soap. I am a diabetic with very dry skin. This soap made my hands feel so soft and the lather feels so wonderful. I like to try the soaps on their own before adding any oils or exfoliates, and so far I am really enjoying this soap. I will be trying all the mixes with it now, but the base is great. This is a full body, moisturizing soap that leaves you feeling clean and soft.

It is so exciting to see Stephenson's adding all these great new soaps to their M & P line. I never would have expected to see African Black soap ever offered as a M & P so what a great treat to see this now on offer here! I had to buy it straight away! Thanks for adding these exotic soap blends and keep up the great work!

The best MP soap I purchased from ND. Need to melt with low heat. Perfect lather, and very emollient than other MP soap. The transparent dark colour can monitor by adding more mica. This is the MP soaps I like the most.

This M&P soap was my first adventure into soap making. I purchased two of the 2 lbs. bricks and did a simple melt and pour of the first brick. I then melted the second brick and added 2 tsp. of ground Chaga (for a gentle exfoliant) as well as 2 tsp. of dried Calendula flower petals and some Peppermint and Mandarin E.O. It all mixed very well and the soap base formed quite well. My husband and mother in-law were very impressed with the quality of the soaps that I made with both of these bricks! I didn't give it 5 stars as I noticed that the top of both 2 lbs. bricks had what looked like a thin layer of hardened white foam. This layer didn't seem to disappear when I melted the soaps and I ended up scrapping it off of my poured soap and forming a round ball of soap out of it for my personal use. I'm not sure what this was or if it is common on M&P soaps. Otherwise I would say that this was a great soap base and it's very nice in the shower as well as a shaving soap!

I'm not normally a fan of m & p, it's usually cold process or nothing. But my husband loves African black soap, I don't love the mess it makes. This is fabulous compromise! I will be buying again.
