Learn to make your own skin care products.

We're focused on soaps, but we've also made lip balms, lotions, body butters, shampoo and body washes. All our skin care products are made by hand, using only natural ingredients. Fragrances are from essential oils and colors from botanicals. Beeswax, honey and lanolin are used occasionally, when a recipe calls for it. Otherwise, everything is plant-based. Once you start making your own products, it's hard to turn back.

 

Find what you need and find it fast.

These resources will help you make the most of your soapmaking time. You'll find out where to get supplies and access to a soap calculator for when you start making your own recipes. (It'll be sooner than you think.)
