Below is a list of our most popular bases, although Bradford has over 50 proprietary bases. Please contact us if you are looking for a formula not featured here.

A quality vegetable base made with sustainably-sourced palm oil and manufactured using a proprietary process to yield 6-8% glycerin for natural moisturization. 80% identity-preserved Rainforest Alliance Certified palm oil and 20% coconut oil. Palm oil certified by RSPO (Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil) is also available.
A quality tallow base made by a proprietary process to yield 6-8% glycerin for natural moisturization. 85% tallow and 15% coconut oil.
This base combines 50% palm oil and 50% coconut oil, which creates a creamy, dense lather with a glycerin yield of 7%-8%.
A quality vegetable base, this formula provides excellent translucency. It produces a creamy foam and contains high levels of humectants and moisturizers. A translucent base is often used to create a broad range of visual effects, as described in the section below.
This is a palm-free base that is high-foaming and contains 7%-8% glycerin. It is formulated with 100% coconut oil.
Bradford offers a soap-free syndet formulation. It is palm-free and has dense, creamy lather. With a pH of 5.5, it is exceptionally mild and recommended for sensitive skin.
Our combo formulation includes our syndet base combined with 10%-15% traditional soap. The combo base is less expensive than pure syndet but retains a low pH of approximately 7.
Bradford's vertical integration in base making enables us to create custom formulations to your specifications. It is impossible to add more than 5% of liquids to soap in the final stamping process because it becomes too soft to extrude. Because we can add liquids at the base-making stage, we have a limitless number of options for the number of additives and the percent of inclusion.
