    Good product

    Good product. It has a fair foam but the foam does not last long. For me it works best when mixed with Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate to create that last longing foam.

    I normally order the noodles and grind myself, however I had to take advantage of your sale. I'm impressed, works perfectly for my shampoo bars. Will be a repeat custumer for sure!
