Hello! Palm/SLS free vegan soap bars seem hard to find - so I'm interested in making it myself.

Does anyone know soap bases that are both SLS and PALM FREE ?? Or is the only option here going to be making the soap from scratch??

I've been searching around the net, seems most are either SLS free or Palm free but not both.. :\

Thanks in advance!

I think you're going to have to make your own.

I have been having the same issue, for clear melt and pour if you end up making it yourself here is a recipe I found. I have yet to make it but I did find 2 types of Vegetable Glycerin that are soy and not palm... literally only 2 I can find on the web after serious searching! I didn't really realize how much soap uses palm oils until I started (I'm new to this), it has made it a less simple process for me that is for sure!
You definitely SAVE a lot of money if you make this stuff on your own if you are planning to use a lot of it, if not I would just continue your search for a base and pay a bit extra.

Here is the recipe and links to vegetable glycerin that is derived from soy not palm oils also does not have SLS.

I'm not sure that is palm free, I may have missed something on it if so I apologize.
The Glycerin does not state if it is palm free.

Also, this post is from 2011. The poster you quoted hasn’t been here since 2011.

You can make your own base using tallow. This recipe is from Good Earth Spa

5oz Distilled Water (for Lye)
2.5oz Sodium Hydroxide (Lye)
5oz Castor Oil
6oz Coconut Oil
6oz Tallow
9oz Propylene Glycol
3oz Glycerin
3oz Sugar dissolved into 3oz Distilled Water
