Comments: I am a vegetarian and so I appreciate that this soap is made from a vegetable base, not animal fats. It's easy to use but I find that it leaves a waxy feel on your skin after washing when the skin is still wet. However, the waxy feel goes away when the skin is dry and is a wonderfully moisturizing soap.
FNWL Response: That's a really interesting observation Alison! I use soaps that I make from our M&P bases on a nearly daily basis and haven't noticed a waxy feel myself. I wonder if the way that you heat the base (double boiler is recommended) or the duration that it's heated (please don't overcook it) or any other additives that you include in your soap may be contributing.

Comments: I really like this soap base.
"I use (and love, love, love!) your Pearlesecent Micas which get me compliments all the time, from coworkers to makeup artists at swanky cosmetic counters. It's cool because people are always asking me where I bought my eyeshadow and it's satisfying to say, "I didn't buy it-- I made it!" As someone with a darker-than-medium skin tone, it's great to be able to blend my own colours that actually show up on me, e.g., 1 part Golden Glow to 1 part Matte Orange = "Yummy Peach"."
