          A lot of consumers, nowadays, look for SLS Free soaps so that might be worth looking into. You can buy some really lovely soap bases with Honey, Goats Milk, Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter and Olive oil added. Messgae me if you'd like some prices or have a look on my website if you'd like to know more
          for bath bomb, soap & Skincare kits
          plus Soap Base, Bath Bomb Ingredients, Butters,
          Oils and packaging for Bath & Body Products

              There are quite a few at the moment. It makes welcoming real newbies a bit hit and miss....

              ... but Dove and Dettol? Really? Such a giveaway!

                YOU are very rude indeed.

                Methinks it is YOU who needs the dettol soap.

                To wash out your insulting mouth.

                    Back to the original question as to what people are looking for, it varies on the type of person and what is important to the individual. I started making soap as I wanted as few a products and ingredients on my skin as possible and the way to do that was to go for cold process (CP) soap as I have full control over what I add to it. I've never made mix and pour although I know people that do and you can get some really fab effects which would be nigh on impossible with CP. I believe M&P is very easy but then again I find CP easy too so it's totally up to you. I agree with the comments above about more people avoiding SLS / parabens etc, my skin is much better for this and I think it's a good thing to be able to say in your marketing although I'm not 100% sure how easy it is to get hold of M&P bases that cover this (think it's getting easier as demand increases). Whatever you do, enjoy your making
