Stephenson Crystal Suspending Melt & Pour Soap Base




Crystal Suspending Melt & Pour Soap is a vegetable based soap base that produces a semi transparent soap bar that holds particles and exfoliant granules in suspension within the soap.  This means the bar is not completely clear when it has set up.  The second graphic shows Rice Bran Wax pastilles suspending in this soap with Yellow Liquid Lake colourant.

  • Capable of suspending particles**please read the tips below
  • Vegetable based
  • Good foaming
  • Excellent moisturising from a high glycerine content which provides a pleasant skin feel
  • Neutral odour provides excellent fragrance lift
  • Suitable for slicing or moulding


  • The level of suspension achieved depends on the size and weight of particulate to be suspended.
  • Testing a single bar with each different exfoliant is recommended before embarking on volume pours. 
  • Add fragrance or essential oils first and carefully stir though the soap, avoiding any vigorous stirring as this creates air bubbles which may remain after the soap is set
  • Take care when stirring through exfoliants and particles, again avoid introducing any air bubbles with vigorous stirring
  • If you wish to colour this base a small trial batch should be made as it may be difficult to colour due to the semi-opacity once particles are added

Note – Due to the viscous nature of this soap base it will retain more air than other bases which in turn may appear affect the clarity of the finished product.  Graphic shows particles suspended in soap, these are not included with the soap, purchase exfoliants separately.
