Cold process soap making is the foundation for all other natural soap making techniques. The difference between conventional soap you find at the drugstore versus handmade soap is huge. Once you start using natural soap, you can never go back to commercially made soap.
You’ll be making a recycled soap mold to hold your fresh 2 pound batch of soap. A video and directions will be given in the course.
You’ll learn how to make a soap recipe that you can call your very own, from the base oils you choose, to the colors, exfoliants, and scent.
If you get stuck, need more information or want to post a question or comment, you’ll find a students only conversation on the bottom of every page in the course. I’ll personally answer your questions.
There are many choices for natural colors. Some of these colors are typical and others are very unusual and creative.
You’ll be watching the unmolding and cutting of a freshly made batch of soap so you’ll know what to expect when your soap is ready to cut.
We will take a look at different ways to wrap and package your soap, how to cure it properly and when you will be able to use it.

Meet The Teacher
I’m Rene Whitlock.
I’m the founder of Soap Making School.
We are going on to our 12th year on line and the program has grown faster than I dreamed.
Soap Making is my passion. since I began in 1997.
I’ve been teaching for a good chunk of that time, starting with friends and other Soap Makers.
I’ve been teaching larger groups for over 23 years. It’s been a blast and it has inspired me to make videos showing what I teach in my live classes. My curious nature has allowed me to push myself into experimenting with many soap making methods that I’ve not seen before.
I like to look for a more logical simplified method for making soap. If I can’t find one then I will invent one. If it works out, it becomes the new method that I use and over time it becomes the norm.
I spent a big chunk of my time during my learning process asking the question why. Why would someone want to complicate something that can be simple? We support Palm oil free soap making and sponsor orphaned Orangutans through Orangutan Foundation International
Hope to see you in the class!
