Cold-Process Soap

Cold-process soap is made from scratch using vegetable oils and lye. Learn the basics while making a batch of honey-oatmeal soap, then experiment with colors and fragrances. Soap made in class can be picked up the next day or next week.

Glycerin soap (AW335) is already made but can be personalized with scents, colors, pearlescent powders, flowers or embedded items. Soap will be ready by the end of class.
