Welcome to Our Soapy Family!
Lovin’ Soap Studio is the home of husband + wife soaping duo, Amanda and Benjamin Aaron. With a combined 20+ years of building successful for-profit and non-profit soap making businesses, Amanda and Benjamin have built one of the soap making industry’s biggest and most practical resources for soap and skin care production and business knowledge.
At Lovin’ Soap Studio, we are committed to providing hands-on, easy-to-follow training for soap makers of all levels. We are passionate about teaching time-tested soap making techniques, skin-soothing, natural recipes and helping you create gorgeous soap designs.
When Amanda and Benjamin aren’t in the soap studio, they are spending quality time with their two beautiful daughters, Juniper Blue and Willow Wilder.
Hi, I’m Amanda Aaron and I’m obsessed with soap making! Back in 2008, I made my first batch of soap. It was a disaster! My recipe was horribly off balance, my procedure and techniques were chaotic and outdated. I simply didn’t have enough knowledge to make a successful batch of soap. I’m so glad my story didn’t end there!
Since that first batch of soap, I’ve not only learned to master the art of soap making, but I’ve also created an entire education business teaching other people how to make, teach and sell their handcrafted soap and body products!
Through extensive trial and error, I have pioneered many techniques and designs that are now replicated by soap makers all across the world. I have written numerous eBooks and have created a wide variety of video eCourses that walk soap makers through the basics of the craft, advanced soap making techniques, recipe creation, soap designs and so much more.
The thing I love most about soap making is how it brings people from across the globe together into a community of friends from all walks of life. I’ve shared my passion for soap making at conferences and seminars, and built an online community, the Saponification Nation Facebook group, with more than 45,000 members, all dedicated to asking questions, helping one another, and sharing their latest soap creations.
Soap making is an art form. The alchemy of aromas and skin-soothing oils to create intricately swirled and designed soap is a uniquely personal experience. I love seeing the smile on someone’s face when they pick up a bar of soap I’ve made, knowing that I’ve not only given them something beautiful, but a product that will nourish and cleanse their skin. Soap making is truly a gift!
Benjamin Aaron’s entrepreneurial efforts in the handcrafted soap and skin care industry lead him to establish Prairie Soap Company, a retail storefront and a wholesale distribution that reached across the continent and beyond. Through the Prairie Soap Company, Benjamins soap was featured in national food chain stores across America.
In 2013, Benjamin joined his wife, Amanda, in co-founding and directing a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization called The Lovin’ Soap Project. With a mission to empower women in developing nations with an artisan manufacturing trade: soap and skin care production.
With the experience and knowledge attained from running a successful for-profit soap and skin care company, along with training of dozens of individuals around the world through his non-profit work, Benjamin offers his unique perspective on business and artisan manufacturing here at www.lovinsoap.com.
Benjamin has authored numerous books on creating men’s grooming products, essential oil blends for men and creating a successful soap and skin care business. He also created a 16-module course, SOAP. BRAND. LAUNCH, which serves as the soap and skincare industry’s most extensive business and marketing course.
