Have you ever wondered what those unpronounceable ingredients are in supermarket-bought soap? Well, they are basically harsh chemicals that are not ideal for our skin. Do you know that you already have the ingredients in your pantry required to make cold process soap? And if you don't then a quick stop into your supermarket will get you started!

In this pre-recorded tutorial, you will learn how to make cold process soap from scratch, without any of the nasties. A list of ingredients and equipment you need will be emailed to you before the online class, but it should be mostly things you already have at home.

Katherine comes from a background of small business, massage therapist and beauty therapist, which has taught her to formulate products using organic ingredients from your home. She has over 10 years of skincare advice and understanding ingredients has made her an expert in her field.

There are different methods of making soap and the one we believe creates the best quality bar of soap is called the cold process method. Passed down through generations, the cold process soap making method creates gentle soaps that cured over four to six weeks and produce a long-lasting bar with ultimate moisturisation. This traditional soap making technique allows us to use only the best natural ingredients and essential oils to produce soap that’s even suitable for sensitive skin.

During this live online class, you will learn:

  • Safety first and most importantly the equipment you will need.
  • How using something so caustic turns into amazing gentle products.
  • Which oils to use to make mild soap, hard soap and moisturising soap.
  • Why temperatures matter in soap making.
  • Which online soap calculators to use to create your own soap making recipes.
  • How to use clays and natural powders from your health shop to make amazing detox soaps.
  • How to measure your oils and butters to be able to bind with the lye solution to turn these ingredients into soap.
  • How to make swirls in your soap.
  • How to make your own simple moulds without spending a cent.

Plus, you will also receive a free e-book with a complete supplier directory, equipment, ingredients, recipes, percentage of oils, and so much more.

Benefits of learning to make cold process soap:
  • It offers you the freedom to choose beautiful, mild skin-loving ingredients.
  • It produces a creamy lather soap for deep moisturisation.
  • It's powerfully natural with ingredients like coconut oil, shea butter and olive oil, which are preserved through the cold process.
  • It produces an intensive scent with natural essential oils.
  • You can make them creatively colourful with swirls, layers of colours and all sorts of interesting designs!

Soap making will open up many doors of opportunities so start your journey today! As an added bonus, you will get a copy of the video tutorial to keep for life after the class.

Please note:
  • This tutorial was recorded during a live session and therefore it is unedited.

TEACHING - MAKING - WHOLESALE since 2010.

Located in Melbourne's North, Coconut Luxe Collections is run by registered Australian Soapmaker Katherine Tzelepis (registered with the Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme).

Our passion is teaching and coaching people wanting to enter the soap and candle market. This niche is a billion-dollar industry and shows no sign of slowing down. I have come to realise that there is a huge demand for more quality soap and candle makers. I am filling the gap between making your items and how to market them amongst the saturation and how you can stand out from the crowd.

We create handcrafted soy candles, luxurious soaps, organic lip balms, body oils, room sprays, and more, using our main ingredient coconut oil.

1/ Background noise was very hard to hear over for the first part of the video.
2/ A few times the presenter used the wrong words when giving instructions - eg - saying maybe 'lye' instead of 'oils'. That sort of thing.
3/ Also I haven't received the e-book mentioned when I signed up, and in your conformation email.
4/ Somewhat disorganised - having to fetch things needed for the demonstration instead of having everything ready to hand.


Reply from this teacher:

Hi Linda, thanks for taking the time to leave a review.

Unfortunately due to bad WiFi as an educator I was flustered and overwhelmed with the bad weather that night. Since then the problem has been rectified and we apologise for something that was out of our control that evening.

I also tried sending the ebook and it bounced back a few times, so we'll ask someone from ClassBento to send that through to you so that you can have access as soon as possible.

Thanks,
Coconut Luxe Collections
