Event Description

This course will introduce you to the wonderful world of cold process soap making. Have you been afraid to make soap because of your fear of sodium hydroxide (lye)? No need to be scared, sodium hydroxide is the caustic agent that unifies your oils and butters with the liquid lye solution to make soap. Here you will have hands on experience on how to make your first batch of soap. In this course you will learn:

  • Brief history of soap
  • Materials needed and what kind of prep work you need to do before you begin
  • All about sodium hydroxide and the necessary precautions you need to take
  • How to formulate a recipe
  • Using natural ingredients to produce a natural log of soap
  • After you make the soap, what next? Insulation, gel phase, cutting, curing and storing
  • Proper labeling requirements will be discussed
  • $25.00 materials fee already added to cost

You will take home a resource manual with recipes, list of suppliers and your own batch of soap (2). You will also be provided with goggles, gloves, & face mask.
Please just bring an apron to class.
