Hello! I’m a new soaper who would like to make embeds with Clear MP. Are there any clear MP soaps without palm oil?? Since I don’t use palm in my soaps, seems hypocritical to use palm in the embeds. If all MP clear for sale has palm, oh Lord, does that mean I would have to make it myself? I’m only as far as CP ! Help!!

You are going to have a tough time finding a base with no palm. In order to make a clear base it usually requires some form of stearic acid which is often derived from palm. You will have a tough time making water clear m&p base without the synthetic additives. Here is an ingredient list for Essentials by Catalina's crystal clear base. It is a lovely base https://essentialsbycatalina.com/super-clear-melt-pour-glycerin-soap-base

Not all the hype about using palm is really viable and children have dinner on their tables. JMO. Sorry had to toss it in...:D:eek:
