About us

about soap making school

I would love to teach you how to make soap.

That’s what Soap Making School is all about.

My name is René Whitlock and I am a full-time soap maker and soap making teacher.
I am also a Reiki Master.
Our goal is to share everything I know and have learned since I started my soap making journey back in 1997 and this is what I wish for when I think about Soap Making School.

I want to save you from making the same mistakes I’ve made over the years and open you up to the incredible possibilities that soap making and skincare has offered me. 

There is room for everyone who’s interested in this industry and I want to be able to guide you through some of the challenges you may face.

I ran a soap making school out of my Vancouver Canada downtown studio and have taught thousands of people to make soap, so I’ve watched many people fall in love with the process. Skincare and soap making is my life.  Here are a few testimonials .

I only use organic oils, natural essential oils and eco-friendly ingredients in my online and local classes.

Take care and happy soaping.
Rene Whitlock
