SLS & SLES free
Glycerin soap - melt & pour soap base - transparent - SLS- and SLES-free - sweat free - Crystal SLES F - GGB17
Description: A stable sweat-arm, shrink-arm, transparent and colorless soap without the additions of Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and without Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES).
Explanation: This transparent glycerin basis melt & pour soap on vegetable base contains more glycerin than the sweat free soap GGB01. The melt temperature is a little higher and the soap has a thicker and greasier structure.
The pour surface of this soap (open side of the mold) remains less smooth than our other melt & pour soap.
This transparent soap looks in its original package (semi-finished product) a little cloudy (semi-transparent). If one melts and pours the soap it becomes completely transparent like our other transparent soaps (see photo below).
About SLS and SLES: One can find a SLS free variant easily. However, this is only a misleading marketing trick. SLS-free soaps still contain SLES. This is the alcoholic kind of SLS. This substance is a little less irritating for the skin, however, it causes more dehydration and therefore it fastens the aging of the skin. Both SLS and SLES can potentially form carcinogens (cancer), types of nitrates and dioxins as a reaction with other ingredients. Large amounts damaging nitrates can enter the body in the shower. Because of the lower molecular weight the substance easily enters the body and stays in the eyes, heart, brains and liver.

- vegetable base
- clear and transparent (when re-molted)
- very foamy
- moisturizing because of the high glycerin level which gives a nice feeling to the skin
- neutral fragrance and optimal color retention
- not tested on animals
- sweat-arm formula*
- shrink-arm formula which is ideal for prolonged decorative use**
- less deformation
- less fragrance-loss
*Sweat-free: even a sweat-free soap has the likelihood to perspire in certain circumstances. Using fragrance oils or colorants from another brand or supplier, or exceeding the maximum melting temperature of 65 degrees Celsius can cause sweating of the soap. A third cause for perspiring is when too much water is added, which puts the formula out of balance. Since we do not have the option to control whether this soap is edited correctly or not, we cannot guarantee for 100% that this soap will not perspire.
The microwave increases the chance of sweating as well as the temperature on some parts of the soap will raise far too high, which also causes the imbalance of the formula. The presence of fragrance oils and colorants increases the chance that the soap perspires as well.
Keep in mind that the so-called ‘sweat’ is not similar to condensation or moisture during the cooling process.
Sweat = moisture deriving from the soap forming droplets on the surface of the soap.
Condensing = moisture from air on a product which is brought from a cold setting into a warmer one.
**Shrink-arm: All soaps contain a certain percentage of moisture causing in case it’s saved unpackaged, a loss of moisture. Due to the loss of moisture the soap will lose its fragrance faster as well. This shrink-arm soap holds moisture for a longer period of time than the Crystal GGB01, which makes the soap, apart form its fantastic cosmetic characteristics, utterly suitable for decorative use as well. Minimum shrink – minimum deformation – minimum fragrance loss.
