The Natural Soapmaking Handbook:
all you need to know to create your own as natural as possible handmade soap
Starting with fundamental ingredients, additives, tools, equipment, safety precautions and workplace setup, the Handbook covers all modern handmade "paste" methods to manufacture as natural as possible, skin-soothing, eco-friendly, sustainable soaps.
Cold Process (CP), Discounted Water CP, No-Heat Applied CP, Hot Process (HP), Double Boiler HP, Oven HP, Crockpot HP, Microwave HP, CPOP (Cold Process Oven Process) and In The Mould HP are accurately illustrated in easy to follow step-by-step instructions.
Advanced techniques for specialty soaps range from liquid soapmaking to milk, butter and honey soap; from layered and swirled soaps to composite soaps and embeds.
Clear instructions for reclaiming, reshaping and rebatching all kinds of soap complement the authors' super-accurate troubleshooting guide to making the most of every batch.
As precious gems scattered along the book, you will be able to discover the truth on soda ash, lye-free soap and other common misconceptions in crisp "Soap myth buster" sections.
