Crystal St Clear Soap / Crystal ST

Our Melt and Pour Clear Soap Base sets a new standard for "standard" glycerin soap base. It is crystal clear with no odor and is made from ALL VEGETABLE OIL. Glycerin, a natural emollient, is included to draw moisture from the air to benefit skin. It cleanses without stripping or upsetting the delicate natural pH balance necessary for soft, healthy looking skin. And, since we don't use animal oils, 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 and sparkling clarity.

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

Information Center:
Quick Start Guide

Features:
Highly moisturizing formula
No artificial colors added
No animal testing
100% Vegetable base
Biodegradable
Very clear and transparent
Colorless for excellent color saturation. Wide temperature ranges, from 140 F to 180 F
Odorless base for a superior fragrance lift
Neutral pH of approximately 7.8
Compatible with wide range of fragrances

Caution: When making soaps it is good to remember that the Melt & Pour 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 would recommend fully wrapping the ENTIRE soap bar as soon as it is poured and cooled--this should minimize/eliminate any shrinkage.

Myself and my customers really like this soap! They love that it is clear and vegan certified. It is a wonderful product and the best melt and pour I have found to date!!! It mixes well with the essential oils and botanical extracts from NDA. I would highly recommend using this soap!! Plus purchasing it in the blocks makes soap making so easy!

I always buy the soap by the block as that is the only way I can afford soaping these days, That said, I wish all M&P Stephenson varieties could be sold by the block! This is my workhorse main staple and most requested soap. It is also the most affordable as well and I hope it stays that way!

I quite enjoyed working with this base. It melts easily, hardens up nicely, takes EOs and FOs well, and looks fantastic. I do get slightly more bubbles with this one than some of the other bases I've tried, especially on the tops of my soaps (despite spraying with alcohol); however, the clarity is amazing and I love it with mica's for colouring.

I bought 5 bricks. After opening the lid, I noticed that there were many tiny bubbles at the top of the soap. I am not sure if this is normal, but aside from that, this soap base is easy to chop up and melt. The soap is clear, but not super super clear.

I love how clear this soap is and it doesn't bubble much either which is great. However, I found it really out oily to the touch right out of the package and when I added my EO's and carrier (half the amount I usually do for a 2lb batch) it was almost dripping out of the soap when it was done. Maybe I used it wrong, but I don't think I will be buying this one again.

First time making soap.Used the clear melt and pour. I didnn't use the stove or microwave method. I bought a soap melting pot on sale. What an easy thing, to make soap. Made up 2 pounds in various sizes of molds. A little trouble getting the soaps out of the molds, but a few minutes in the freezer and they pop out. Now to see how well they sell at that market. Will also get a little cretive with blending colors for more interest.

Up to now I only bought 1 kg of the clear M&P base. With 2 pounds I did 2 batches of soaps. I generally added cocoa, Shea butters, argan oil, coconut butter, avocado and jojoba oils (not all oils in a 1 pound batch). I generally don't add more than 2 tbsp of other oils/pound. In the end, I add some color (water melon food essence) and essential oil (sweet orange). I pour the melted soap in muffin silicone bases (heart and flower molds). The result is awesome. I keep it packed in wax paper. It smells amazing, makes a nice foam and gets easily of your skin, without drying it. It also does not leave any residue on the skin. My hubby's only complain is, he feels like eating the nice peach-orange, cake looking soaps.

Howdy! Everyone says the base is great and all... and that's because it is "great." I don't use too much of my product (I sell instead). According to my customers, the soap is brilliant for those who suffer from skin conditions. I s'pose it's 'cause it's a natural base. The base is clear too, if you don't use too much FO. I'm not a huge fan of the smell of the soap when you're working with it - then again I've always been sensitive to strong smells. The smell isn't nearly as strong when the soap solidifies. The lather isn't as other soaps (like soap from the Bodyshop, for example), but it quickly washes off, which I really like. I don't like how long it lasts. A bar lasts (in our house) for perhaps 5 days whereas an equal weight bodyshop bar lasts ~14 days Pros: - Great for those who have sensitive skin - The lather rinses off real quick and clean - Clear - CHEAP (well, at NDA it is) - Melts Quick - Takes most FO's easily Cons: - Bad work smell - Not a thick lather (well, i like thick lather - if you don't, consider it a pro) - Some FO's don't blend - Does not last long at all. Overall, the customers and family are happy with the product. Go buy it.

I just am very impressed with the Stephenson's superb quality and unbeatable price. By way of a quick comparison: Life of the Party makes a pretty good clear soap but the price is four times as much at Michaels for the exact same quantity and I will also say the same superb quality too.

This is a lovely M&P base!!! Melts nicely, even faster than other bases I have tried. No nasty odors, and takes scents very well. Colours nicely, too. And, something I REALLY love is that this base has the most natural ingredients of any clear M&P base I have come across thus far. This will be my one and only clear M&P base from now on!! .... I do, however, recommend buying the smaller blocks instead of the bulk bag. Although the soap was easy to cut, I would personally pay the extra few dollars for the smaller blocks, and avoid the time-consumption that comes with cutting it myself, because it took a really long time!!
