Default What's the best base - UK based

Hey everyone,

So after my son asked me to make some soap for his class friends for Christmas, in which I stepped up and gave them a go. I must admit I've really enjoyed it, I want to do some more but only M&P for now as it seems easiest.

I've been looking online and found Stephenson appear to be highly recommended, which is your favourite any worth trying? As I am making soaps for me I have to consider my dry skin - doesn't have to be that make, suggestions welcome.

Stephenson's is one of the best from what I've read and highly recommended by many. I can't help much though as I don't make a lot of MP just as embeds once in awhile.

I'll recommend Stephenson's also. I've recently tried the argan oil base & it's a lovely color and is great for your skin.
