Most soap bases must be poured at a higher temperature which prevents small particles from suspending throughout the soap. We recommend using the Suspension Soap Base if you want to add exfoliants like jojoba beads or coffee grounds. You can also allow the soap to cool a little more before pouring. Remember to stir continuously to prevent the soap from setting in your mixing bowl. Expect it to be very thick, which helps the exfoliants suspend better.
