Our New Liquid Crystal Base from Stephenson provides a simple way of producing a variety of Personal Care Products. This base allows you to manufacture your own shampoos, body wash and shower gel, and bubble baths.

Directions: Simply dilute the Liquid Crystal Concentrate with water, add fragrance, color and preservative of your choice and thicken your product by adding common salt. Liquid Crystal Concentrate is highly active as a 5:1 concentrate with typical use levels of around 20 to 30 %. It has excellent clarity, neutral PH, low odor and a neutral color. Although highly active, it has a low viscosity, making it readily pour able or pump able.

To add salt as a solution, dissolve 1 part salt to 2 parts hot water. Parts are determined by weight, (example: 1 oz / 28 g salt to 2 oz / 56 g) water. Add this mixture a little at a time to increase viscosity. Trials will be needed to establish the correct amount to add. Normal usage levels are 5-6% of the total formulation weight.


Liquid Crystal Concentrate is not designed to be used undiluted. It should be diluted as per our guidelines; otherwise, in its undiluted form it may cause skin irritation.

I don't know what Mary was thinking when she wrote that review. LCC is one of the thickest bases ND offers, in fact so thick you're supposed to add water to it. I ordered a bottle and use it to make Multipurpose Dishwashing Liquid with lemon, lime, grapefruit and oregano.

This is the first product that I experimented with, and I can truthfully say that I need not look any further for another product of this kind. I experimented on myself, family, and friends first. They were pleased and impressed with the results of this product. Now I can go forward with making products to sell. Thank you NDA! You are an all time favorite of mine, and highly recommended.

I have played around with this product and just can\'t get it thick enough. If you want a thick soap this is like cold honey texture this is not for you. Way too water like for me. For a THICK soap use one of the other great products they offer. Mine tended to turn cloudy after a few weeks onthe shelf. This is the first product that made me unhappy.

This is very nice, although it took me a couple of tries to get the salt right, so I recommend small batches until you're confident. There is a soap odor, but after you mix with fragrance and let it sit a few days, the fragrance permeates the whole batch. DO use solubizer (sold here) a.k.a. polysorbate 20 to mix half and half with your fragrance. Otherwise, you might have gelling or thinning, at least that was my experience. I found it hard to find directions that made perfect sense to me, perhaps because it's such a flexible base.
