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 0.5% or 5 ml of any essential oil be added to a Liter our cosmetic bases. Exceeding this amount may destabilize bonds between the ingredients.

Rating: This shower gel broke down with the addition of FO and a small amount of germicide.......became very watery and no amount of mixing additional base helped.
I'm so discouraged.....not sure what I did wrong. I now have a huge batch of runny soapy water to use up.

Rating: great base and holds scent well

Rating: I love love love this shower gel! I keep having to change my formula to add more moisturizing oils because it still lathers! I've struggled with products that stop lathering after you add even the smallest amount of moisturizing oils, but this one keeps taking and taking without losing its lather. It's great if you want to create a highly moisturizing shower gel that still lathers! Very please, thank you again NDA!
Rating: EO is the way to go with this product. I find the FO's just don't have the power to overcome the default fragrance of this product. The SLS makes it a tad harsh for my skin but this product does provide good cleaning and foaming. Additives should be properly diluted before adding to this product.

Rating: It looks great and feels great - however, beware if you are mixing with EOs, FOs or oils because it becomes cloudy and goopy. It should come with the warning - needs an emulsifier!
Rating: I like this shower gel and it's my second order. I find that I can sometimes use shower gels and bubble bath but this one does bubble enough for bubble bath. A good bubble bath for the price but you will need to thicken it once you add fragrance or essential oil.

Rating: I add my own EO. I have made a few different types (depends on the day:)! Lathers great, I love it better than any "Store Bought" wash. I feel cleaner and it rinses well, while the aromatics remain. I can't imagine purchasing store bought ever again. GREAT PRODUCT
Rating: This was a nice consistency. Added pink grapefruit EO and mango madness FO and my roommates love it. "I actually feel cleaner"

By:Jamie, Lancaster, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Impressed that this is a thick shower gel and the amount that you get for the price. It's crystal clear, not light yellow like some gels can be.

Rating: I put Strawbery fruit extract with Strawberry Champagne Fragrant oil and I cannot believe that I made my own fruity flavor Shower Gel..

Rating: Another wonderful product from NDA! As someone else noted, EOs tend to make this a bit runny, but the FOs work great. I used the Sensual Amber FO and just loved the luscious results! I'll be buying this one, again (and again, I'm sure).
By:Marith, Berea, West Virginia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 20-May-2007
Rating: Excellent lather, great texture, overall the best body wash/gel I have found! Holds fragrance like a dream, and EO's almost as well (get's a little runny with the EO's, but keeps the rich lather). I highly recommend this shower gel!
