Intro to Cold Process Soap Making Register View Cart

Instructor: Jennifer Hofmann


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! The 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 and proper mixing temperatures
• Coloring your soap (micas, labcolors, herbs, spices and clays)
• Scenting your soap (fragrance oils verses essential oils)
• Preparing your molds and molding options
• Insulating, cutting, curing and storing your finished soap
Each student will make their own 1lb batch of soap that they will get to take home with them. The mold will be theirs to keep as well so they 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.
