Best Options of Each Brand


When it comes to a base to create a quality, melt and pour soap bar, SFIC bases are unbeatable. We recommend the Shea Butter for body bars, Goat’s Milk for hair and body bars, and the Shaving base to make solid, shaving soap that will lather amazingly. 

To be honest, their quality is unmatched for Melt and Pour bar soaps!


Stephenson’s unique bases are perfect for unique projects. If you’re wanting to make a body scrub, body butter, and other trending items, your best bet is their Foaming Bath Butter (Crystal OPC). It’s amazing! 

We also recommend their shampoo and conditioner bar bases for a low maintenance, easy to use, and cost effective hair care base.
