Product Rating: 4.9/5 (As per 37 Customer Reviews)
This product is manufactured in a certified organic facility using organic ingredients in the United Kingdom. Since it is not NOP/USDA certified, which is the only recognized accreditation in North America we are classifying this product as a NCO product.
Our Melt and Pour NCO Soap Base is free from any foam boosters and preservatives. Made from organic vegetable oils, this base contains no alcohol or harmful products to dry your skin!
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 from the highest quality coconut oil, forming 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 • Exclusive formula made from organic oils • Made in a facility certified organic by the Soil Association of the United Kingdom • Neutral base for a superior fragrance lift • Color is light butterscotch not transparent due to the use of organic oils • Compatible with wide range of fragrances
Important Note: This soap base is made from natural ingredients, therefore the color may vary batch to batch. This variation in color may affect the end product. Please do a small test batch.
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: I have just started making soaps for my artisan markets here in my small town. I chose this melt and pour base because it is a vegetable base . It melts just right and holds it colour well and the scent nicely too. I have 2 people who are my testers and they just love the texture of the soap.
I plan on ordering more.
Rating: I have used NDA's Organic M & P for years and I can say that it is the best EVER. I create my Jewel Perfume Soaps with this with amazing results! The soaps are very long-lasting being quite hard, and they hold my Perfumes to the end. And the price is definitely a bonus...

Rating: I love that this base is organic, and the colour is nice, too. I do find it a little soft, though.

Rating: This base is wonderful to work with! I add Hemp Seed Oil to this and make great hand soaps that my customers love. Takes scent and colour wonderfully! Lathers really well, too and leaves your skin super soft.
Rating: I love this soap too. I do have concerns about it containing Pentasodium Pentetate and Tetrasodium Etidronate. They are not natural, they are a chemical ingredient. Just letting everyone know it doesn't appear to be 100% natural.

Rating: This is by far my favourite base, I'd like to be able to order it in larger quanties to bring down the price and switch our entire glycerin line over to this base. It is beautiful to work with, lathers just fine, scents last well. Fabulous!

Rating: I love this glycerin base, I add different clays, extracts, oils from ND, and very little fragrance, it is easy to work with and a bar lasts for a long long time, I have to give a lot away so I can keep trying new additives, The people I have given to, come back to buy some for their friends, It has a healthy yummy color and fragrance on its own.

Rating: I have just used this soap base for a fund raiser for Breast Cancer - and although I found it hard to mix the Mica Colouring with the base - I just put a little more power behind my whisk and all was well. It lathers beautifully - thanks NDA - Great Products! You'll be hearing lots from me in the future!

Rating: This soap lathers great! makes your skin feel fantastic! works well with all EO and FO and even suspends raw materials beautifully. 5 stars all the way!
By:Stephanie, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-Aug-2010
Rating: used this for my first time making soap and it worked great. I used sweet orange essential oil and some grated orange peel, which made an amazing bar
Rating: This is a lovely, well-lathering and long-lasting soap and you can't beat the price! I would have to pay more than twice as much at the health food store to buy the same amount of "natural" soap that still contains questionable ingredients. I feel so relieved not having to put toxic, harsh chemicals on myself and my 3 year old son. This is our soap from now on.
Rating: This is a great soap base! Doesn't dry the skin, everyone I've given it too loves it and wants more! The bars last a long time too. Definitely a must try for soap lovers!
By:Stephanie, Burlington, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 21-Nov-2006
Rating: Excellent. Organic AND SLS and Propeleyne Glycol free!!! Worth the extra cost.
By:Tracey, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Jan-2007

Rating: How refreshing to find a high quality organic soap base! So hard to find and now I found the place to get it! Its great to be as environmental and to be as health concious as possible and to do so affordably is a dream come true for me. I love the thought of healthy healing skin care products that are so easy to use and deliver such a fine end product. I love this stuff!
By:Susanne, Newmarket, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Jul-2007
Rating: I have been using the organic M&P soap base since it's introduction, and I find it easy to use, long lasting, maintains a lovely colour, holds ingredients in suspension well and takes essential oils and botanicals with no problem. I have started buying and cutting the large blocks and find them very reasonable and easy to cut.
The web site is great, easy to navigate and use, and customer service wonderful.
Rating: This organic soap is very mild and has a nice lather. Highly recommended for those with very dry skin, it does not leave the skin tight or flaky. I combine this with honey, oatmeal and olive butter.
Rating: A great natural alternative - colours and scents easily. Fun for the kids to embed little plastic critters, add sparkles and keep clean!
By:Erin, St. George, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 19-Nov-2005
