Stephenson Crystal RC - PALM FREE Melt & Pour Soap Base




Palm Free, No Animal Ingredients

Crystal RC (Palm Free) has replaced our Neutral Palm Free Melt & Pour Soap Base.
The "RC" in the name of this base stands for:  Rapeseed and Coconut - the oils that in combination allow this base to be palm oil free.  Our own base was the result of loads of trials to create a palm free, quality soap base for Australians.  Stephenson has reformulated their own palm free base and we are happy with the result so no longer need to queue to produce our own base.  It still forms the basis of our new range of Palm Free Melt and Pour Soap bases, and is neutral in colour and odour.  It is a pale transluscent honey colour - it is not quite clear enough for embedding goldifsh etc with perfect clarity, and this is due to the formulation avoiding all those ingredients you have asked us to leave out which includes animal or palm derived sodium stearate.

The new formulation has undergone further testing and has improved the quality and suitability for soap crafters and their needs. It has excellent lather and foaming qualities with a light impartial colouring, suitable for manufacturing of translucent soaps.  Its mild odour makes for perfect fragrance lift!

It has been tested for basic bars, embedding, layering, whipped tops and swirling.  It has performed well as a reliable all rounder.  It has a higher melt point (75°C) and sets up much harder than our other line of Melt and Pour Soap Bases.

Suitable for:  All skin types including sensitive
