Do lye calculations freak you out? Do fatty acid profiles leave you scratching your head? Maybe you’ve tried a number of recipes that didn’t turn out the way you wanted them to.

In this hour and a half video eClass, I outline everything you need to know to confidently formulate your own soap recipes that actually produce a product you can be proud of!

In the Learn to Formulate Cold Process Soap Recipe eClass, I take the guesswork out of formulating your own recipes. My informative discussion covers fatty acid profiles, single oil soaps, modifying recipes and starting ratios.

You’ll learn how to customize soap for a variety of skin types including sensitive skin, oily skin and dry skin, and how changing the base oil will get you different qualities in your soap.

Why formulate your own recipes?

  • Handcrafted soap isn’t one-size-fit-all. With the knowledge from this eClass, you’ll be able to customize a recipe for a baby’s sensitive skin and formulate another recipe for a mechanic who works with grease and oil all day. The customizations are endless!
  • Have you ever tried a soap recipe that didn’t turn out the way you wanted it to? Maybe you wished it was more moisturizing or had a creamier lather. When you understand the artform of formulating your own soap recipes, you’ll be able adjust existing recipes for many different outcomes.
  • Formulating your own recipes is good for your soap business. Building your soap business around someone else’s recipe isn’t ideal. Stand out from the crowd by customizing your own unique soap recipes that are one-of-a-kind.
