Intro to Cold Process Soap Making (Ages 18 plus)
Time & Location
About The Event
This class will introduce you to the basics of making cold process soap. Cold process soaps are created by blending oils (or fat) with a lye mixture. In turn the soap saponifies over the next twenty-four hours turning the lye-oil mixture into a solid bar of soap!
This class will cover the following:
Brief history and basic chemistry of soap making
Necessary materials, supplies and equipment
Safety considerations when working with sodium hydroxide
Taking accurate measurements & proper mixing temperatures
Coloring your soap (micas, herbs, spices & clays)
Scenting your soap (frangrance oils verses essential oils)
Preparing your molds and molding options
Insultating, cutting, curing and storing your finished soap
Each student will make their own 1 lb batch of soap that they will get to take home with them (the mold will be theirs to keep as well so you can make future batches of soap). Students will also leave with very thorough handouts and enough information to make awesome vegetable based natural soap from scratch on their own as well as a full-sized bar of soap to enjoy. This class uses only vegetable based ingredients.
