Dear Customer,

Due to the rising costs of administering small orders, we are instituting a policy for minimum orders of $100, in our efforts to keep costs to as low as possible and offer the best wholesale pricing in the industry.

For orders less than $100, a small order administration fee of $20 will apply. This policy will be effective February 3rd, 2014. We truly regret any inconvenience that this might cause.

Kind Regards,

Alex B. Thomas

Body Wash Base Cosmetic Base

Average Product Rating: 4.5 / 5 (Based on 19 Customer Reviews)

Paraben Free
Renew your skin with our Creamy Body Wash Base. It has a mild, rich lathering formula with light moisturizers for soft, smooth feeling skin, and it rinses clean without leaving a residue. This base has been specifically formulated to be extremely robust. Essential Oils, fragrant oils, botanical extracts and various raw materials can be added in order to customize each product.

Usage: We recommend that no more than 1% or 10 ml of any essential oil be added to a Liter our cosmetic bases. Exceeding this amount may destabilize bonds between the ingredients. Over time this may cause our bases to lose some of their luxurious properties including viscosity, smooth feel and rate of absorption.

Price includes bulk open head drum with plastic liner.
A lead time of 3 weeks is needed in order to fill a drum order.
A non-refundable 50% deposit is required.

This is our winner when it comes to formulating an antibacterial body wash for our river rafting sports fans. Hygienic and ultra smooth. The younger rafters won't refuse to wash when they come out of the river because their formula smells like gumballs.We order five gallons at a time.

I purchased this product last year and was very impressed with it. It has the luxurious feel of a very expensive body wash, but without the price. I added fragrance and jojoba beads and it was a wonderful exfoliating wash which left my skin feeling refreshed.

Loved the consistency of the body wash but I haven't been able to get the right balance of FO. I can still smell the base. I will keep working till I get it right!

This is my favorite in comparison to the shower gel base and even the bubble bath base. I LOVE how creamy this base is. My son and I had fun adding color and fragrance oil to it. He chose bubble gum scent, but really really wants cotton candy scent. :) This is such a great company. I love mixing and making up my own scented body washes, bubble bath, and facial cleansers!!

I ordered this product and I fell in love with it. It takes scents very well and I love how creamy the product looks and feels. It gives a pearl type look to the product and all of my customers love it. ND has done it again. Thank you ND this product is the best that I have tried and I will be ordering more!

I have just prepared 32 oz. of this Body wash, adding 3 ml. of fragrance and 4 drops of colour that corresponds with my fragrance and I've found myself in heaven . Take it from me - I have tried out a lot of bases from other companies - and this is the one that I am going to use from now on! This body wash has an attractive "pearly" finish that enhances my additives. Interestingly - having a lot of experience with "up market" retail body washes - I feel that the sheen of the basic material gives that "pricey" luxurious first reaction. Previously I had made a "trying out" bottle of this Body Wash - just to check to feel if it was any good - my assessment is so positive! If you want to make a "up scale" product that has the sheen, tolerance of fragrance and an all-round luxurious feel - this is the one to order. Thank you "New Directions" for enabling me to be so impressive!

Wow! WOW! This product is amazing! It holds the EO's very well. It lathers extremely well. It cleans wonderfully! It makes me want to shower wayyyyy too much--LOL! This is an exceptional product. I am now looking on this site to see what else I can do more naturally. If the rest of your products perform even half as well, I know that I will have gotten more than my money's worth. I am looking forward to a longgggg and happy relationship with your company! God Bless!

I bought this after trying and liking the shower gel. This is a really great alternative. It's richer and smoother.

I was so excited to order this item and thrilled at the quality of the product once I received it. I wanted a product that would blend well with essential oils and maintain a rich lather allowing the user to feel clean and refreshed with the added benefits of essential oils. I've found this product to be extremely versatile. This unscented body wash allows for the freedom to add any desired scent imaginable. The white color allows for the product to take on the natural colors of essential oils or allow for the addition of Lab Colors for an infinite possibility of product options. The thickness of the product allows the mixer to maintain the thick consistency or create a thinner product depending on the purpose or preference of the user. The bare product itself is as described rich in lather and clean rinsing.

NDA you have impressed us again with a great product, and we are pleased with it. We hope our customers will enjoy as much as we do. This wash holds fragrance oils very well and it works well with a loofa scruber for the shower, leaving you feeling clean and soft. Do not over scent will make this thick shower base very thin. however it is still a great product and you have made it so easy for us to make and deliver another great product. We will be ordering again

This is a nice, easy to work with base for scenting and additives. I would however like to find a product/formulation to thicken this up just a bit without detracting from the suds

I was satisfied with this product. I have really enjoyed mixing up my own body wash with different fragrance and essential oils.

This body wash had a sort of weird consistency. The wash itself is fine, not as many bubbles as the shower gel. Overall a good product, however I prefer the shower gel.

New Directions Aromatics Response:

Our Body Wash is a pearlized product with a similar viscosity to our Shower Gel. However, the Shower Gel has a clear consistency more closely related to our Regular Shampoo Base.

Our Body Wash continues to sell well, but as with most products, customers seem to have a very distinct opinion on whether they prefer the Body Wash or the Shower Gel!
