Paraben, Sulfate and Triclosan are some of the ingredients in commercial soap that I never questioned until I began making soap at home. That’s when my curiosity got the best of me.
After finding just these three, I wanted to call a truce to look for dangerous additives in what I used (and worse yet, my children used) to clean.
That’s when I thought I found the fourth one. Fragrance! How in the world could something that sounds as harmless as fragrance possibly damage your skin? How wrong I was. The definition of fragrance was a far cry in meaning than the one on the soap label.
I began making soap because it was a fun hobby I could share with my children. I continued because it morphed into a successful small business. But I’m now compelled to continue knowing that I’m contributing to the health of my family.
Before we get into the actual soap making, I do share my findings about just these four potentially harmful ingredients found in too many soaps and body washes. I am sure you will be shocked to read it. But let’s move on and talk about what more is in this book.
I wanted to arrange the chapters in a logical order. So you are not confused as I was when I first started.
I start off with what and how commercial soap can harm you and your family, I dug deep and found out the truth. Then I explain all three soap making process and why Melt and Pour method is the best and easiest to use. Next, I show you what supplies and equipment you will need and their approximate cost. In the next chapter I guide you through a step by step soap making process (chapter 4). After that we discuss everything under the sun about molds you can use and all of their different variations and types (chapter 5).
Chapter 6 is all about adding colors and how to use the color wheel. Next up is essential oils which give your soap its scent and a great natural healing power (Chapter 7). After that it is all about my favorite recipes (chapter 8), next I share 15 soap coloring tricks that may truly surprise you, yes they are that good really! (chapter 9).
And lastly, in chapter 10, it is all about how to start, run and grow your soap business right from home.
After reading the book, you will become a master on how to make homemade soap using melt pour soap making method. You will also learn about all soap making supplies, my favorite soap making recipes and most importantly you will know the difference between store bought commercial soap vs. all natural and organic soap made right at home.
