Syndet Melt and Pour Base


eBotaniq Syndet Melt & Pour Base is extra-mild, and formulated to be high foaming. Our Syndet base allows you to create 100% soap-free shampoo bars which are tailored to sensitive skin and scalps, unlike a traditional glycerin soap which contains sodium stearate (which is not suggested as a shampoo base).

Applications for this syndet melt and pour base include facial skincare and shampoo bars, moisturising shaving bars, solid beauty bars, and exfoliating scrub bars.

This pH balanced Australian made and owned formulation offers gentle cleansing properties. It is entirely free from SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulphate) and SLES (Sodium Laureth Sulphate) and is vegan friendly.

what do you need to get started

• eBotaniq Syndet melt and pour base
• Suitable vessel to heat the product in
• Microwave or a suitable heating device
• Stirrer to mix the product when melting
• Thermometer
• Additives if required
• Mould or suitable container to pour the product into once molten
• If planning to slice, a soap wire cutter


Remove  syndet M&P base from the packaging and cut the product into smaller pieces to aid melting. Add the prepared product to a suitable vessel which is stable on heating. (Please note this base is soft as supplied but will harden once processed).



Melt the product in a microwave or a suitable heating device ensuring that the base melts evenly. Stirring the product regularly helps to do this. Recommended heating temperature should be around 80 °C

Please note – When molten, the base clears but will return opaque upon setting.



Once the base is molten, additives such as fragrance, colour and any additional hair care agents can be added to customise the base. Simply add the chosen additives to the molten product and mix to ensure even distribution. It is recommended that the level of additives included is up to 3 % maximum. This level would include up to 2 % fragrance. Stability testing may be required to ensure compatibility.



Pour the molten product into a mould or suitable container between 70 – 85 °C and allow to set.



Once the sydnet base has set, remove the product from the mould or suitable container, allow time for the base to set. The bars will release more easily if it has been left for 24 hours in a cool place.

Please note – Once unmoulded, the base will continue to harden overnight.  Once hard, package as required. If the finished product is to be sliced, we recommend using a soap wire cutter.

– due to the glycerine present in the base, this base can be prone to sweating if high temperatures have been used
