Soap University

I had the good fortune to work with Marla Bosworth from Boston, Amanda Griffin from Texas and Holly Port of Colorado at Soap University in NYC. We did 3 full days of soap making classes from beginner classes to advanced. It’s always an amazing experience to network with other soap makers and immerse myself in an entire weekend of soap.  But I think my favorite part is watching the friendships develop between all of us.  (more…)

Victoria’s science project

Victoria is a student at Holy Trinity High School.  She told me she had a science project and she wasn’t sure what to do for it. I suggested she do a project on the different properties of oils in soap making. She decided to focus on lather. We made two batches of soap, one was a pure olive oil soap and the other was a blend of olive, coconut and palm.  Victoria gave samples of each soap to friends and family to wash with, and compiled data by giving them all a questionnaire to answer. She found out that the soap make with the coconut, palm and olive oil produced more bubbles than the soap made only with olive oil.
