Product Rating: 4.4/5 (As per 11 Customer Reviews)
NOTE: The Brick size for this product is for final sale (non-refundable) and will be discontinued once out of stock. We will continue carrying the Block size.
Our Vanilla Stable Melt & Pour Glycerin Soap Base is uniquely formulated not to change color over time when Vanilla Fragrances (and those fragrances containing Vanillin) are used. As with other Stephenson Melt & Pour bases, it is composed of 100% VEGETABLE OIL and contains no alcohol or harmful products to dry your skin!
Glycerin, a natural emollient, draws moisture from the air to benefit the complexion, and the base 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.
Features: • Highly moisturizing formula • No artificial colors added • No animal testing • 100% Vegetable base • Biodegradable • Excellent transparency enables bright colors • Color-stable with Vanilla fragrances or vanilla fragrant blends up to 2% added • Excellent moisturizing from a high-glycerin content which provides a pleasant skin feel • Superior color stability even if kept at a high temperature for extended periods • Odorless base that is 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.

Rating: My favourite clear base. I love how you don't have to worry about the soap turning brown. A little softer than the regular clear bases but it's very versatile. I like to add pieces with my white soap to help with the browning of those as well. Would recommend!

Rating: I love that this is so clear to start, and stable with vanillins. However, it seems to stay a fair bit softer than the other NDA bases I've tried. I'll likely just work with vanilla soap darkening rather than fighting it, and use non-vanilla scents for my clear soaps.

Rating: I liked this product. I've purchased similar products only to be dissapointing in their foaminess. This product had a nice foam and did what it was suppose to do.

Rating: This was my very first M&P base. Everything discoloured it a little, however it did best with vanilla oils. Probably won't buy this base again, but it was a fun start!

Rating: I'm new to soap-making, and this is the first base I have used. It stays a lovely clear, and holds scent really well. When I used it on myself, I tend to have dry skin, I was 'squeaky clean' with no residue, but it made my skin feel tight. I think it would be okay though if I added more oils. But until I learn more about oils, I will try this base later on. For now, I'm going to use a softer soap base.

Rating: This is my first time using this product, and I have never seen a more clear soap base ever! Makes amazingly clear soaps! This may be my new favourite soap base!

Rating: Je n'utilise une base que pour un seul savon, et ce dernier contient de la vanille. Merci à NDA de mettre une telle base à notre disposition, le savon demeure de la couleur voulue!
I only use melt and pour for one thing, thanks NDA for allowing us a soap that stays true to its intended colour with vanilla!
Rating: I am so thrilled with your NEW Vanilla Stabelizer Soap Base, I have had major trouble with vanilla soap turning a dark brown yucky color leaving brown suds on the tub. My customers will appreciate the NEW Vanilla Oat Spa-Bar. Now it is a beautiful natural looking work of art. I will always buy your products, they are the best I've found and the prices are unbeatable. Your company is highly recommended!!!!!
