Here's a link to SFIC MP Ingredients


The company started in San Francisco 49 years ago during the Hippy era and it's now located in Concord CA about 30 miles away. You can only buy bulk (500 lb and up) from the above link. Bulk Apothecary and Bramble Berry both sell online. You'll need to do a little research to learn how much of the various additives to add to tweak the soap to make it your own.

Looking forward to pics! Happy Soaping!

Late tuning in here but I'd suggest BB goat milk soap as a gentle m and p.

I like Stephenson soap bases. SFIC is good as well. My last purchase was Stephenson 25# of Triple Butter (nice, gentle, white soap) and Stephenson 25# of clear. I purchase from Candle Science which is nearby and drivable so I can save on time and shipping cost

I don't know if they still do it, but SFIC will sell a customer a 1-time sampler of 1 lb blocks of every type of soap they sell. If you like the brand I have found Bulk Apothecary to have the best prices for SFIC especially when on sale. Nurture Soap also carries SFIC bases.

Though not a fan of propylene glycol, WSP has some very nice bases that I don't doctor very much. I especially like the 3-butter base.
