Crystal Suspending

Our Melt and Pour Suspending Soap Base is specially designed to 'suspend' additives such as jojoba beads or loofah. It can be used to create a decorative soap bar (e.g. such as by adding fine glitter) or a functional exfoliating bar. Creative possibilities are endless. Some trial and error is required with this product, as some additives may be too heavy for the suspending properties of the base to work properly. Users should try adding their ingredients at a slightly cooler temperature than normal, as the base will be thicker and more likely to suspend additives. The key ingredient in the Suspending M&P base is Silica. Silica creates a suspending matrix within the formulation, but that very property can also be apt to trap in more air and create a cloudy effect. Therefore, when stirring in additives, it should be done very gently and avoid any abrupt stirring as this can inadvertently welcome air into the formulation and cause unwanted cloudiness of the base.

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

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.

I was having a hard time finding a soap base that I could use Jojoba beads in. Tried other melt and pours but the jojoba beads were not being suspended. This product is perfect.

Suspends seeds well and is the answer to what I was looking for. No need to stir till thick like I had to do with other soaps to get it to suspend. Tiny bubbles appear in the soap no matter how gently you stir but if poured at the right temp, I could not see them in the soap when colored yellow. Lathers well and i am always sold out of my kitchen soap. NDA is the only place I buy this from. Keep them in stock!

This soap base is easy to cut and melted. It does have a bit more bubbles and solidify easily, but it works! It holds the Himalaya salts suspending when I made Himalaya Magic soaps. I tried other P&M bases earlier but didn't work. This is great product I will buy more for sure.

I used it to suspend poppy seeds and make a strawberry soap and it worked great. Lots of bubbles, but with a spritz of rubbing alcohol it went away like with most m&p. Will definitely incorporate into my regular m&p bases.

I agree with some of the other comments, this soap is too bubbly. I made fish in a bag soap with it and you can't even see the fish through the glycerin due to the quantity of bubbles. I stirred as slow as possible and tried different heat points, but still the same result.

I have had great success with this soap base in the past but I think that I must be a little out of practice as I tried to incorporate coarse salt crystals but they were clearly too heavy and stayed at the bottom! I had no problem with bubbles though as I stirred gently and waited until the base was clearing before pouring. You do have to stir it very gently and be patient and then pour quickly but gently. In another small batch I added a pink mica powder, for colour, ( not available at NDA but it would be nice if NDA would stock this item,) and the soap came out to be one of the prettiest ever!

The suspension feature works pretty well..but there were so many bubbles in the soap that you couldn't even see the items that were being suspended...there is almost no point! Haven't had this problem with any other base from here...just this one...

I like the idea if this product more than the product itself. Mine came to me in a brick that already had so many bubbles in it and once melted and even sprayed with alcohol I couldn't get rid of 90% of the bubbles. It does suspend well but with all those bubbles it doesn't give me the look i want.

I was surprised, I tried it for the first time, I think I might have tried to rush it too much, but the Jojoba oils def. mix everywhere. I made the soap for my husband and he seems to like it! :)

What a fantastic soap. This is the perfect soap to use if you are adding certain ingredients (i.e. oatmeal, rose petals, lavender buds, etc.). The soap helps to suspend the ingredients so that it doesn't float to the bottom or top like it does with the standard glycerin "melt and pour" soaps. I would gladly purchase this again.

I had my very first M&P experience with this product, and was very pleased. I was also pleasantly surprised to see how fast and easy it was to use! I tried it with glitter and a bit of fragrance as a gift for three young girls, and the soaps turned out beautifully, the glitter perfectly and homogeneously suspended.

I was a little skeptical of this product, assuming it was nothing but clear melt and pour, just with a higher price tag. Wrong! It works great, suspended all kinds of things. Its a great product, and I will be buying again.

The price is right for this essential soap making base. If you want to do botanical soaps and add your organic goodies then this is the soap base to use. Another soap winner here. You can't go wrong with the quality or the price! Highly recommended!

The Suspension Soap is a life-saver when making melt and pour with dry additives. No longer does my oatmeal float to the top or sink to the bottom! You do have to watch the temperature closely as it doesn\'t tolerate \'too hot\', as with stirring it too much. Just a wonderful product! Worth the price of keeping things evenly \"suspended\" throughout the bar.
