On this one-day, hands-on workshop with Jenny Smith from The Scottish Soapworks, you will cover the soap-making methods in detail including: ingredients; suppliers; equipment; safety issues; recipes and essential oils. You will receive with a pack of information including details of suppliers, legislation on creating recipes, and practical hints and tips.
Our business workshops are arranged at a time to suit, so please contact us to arrange a date and to discuss any questions you may have. The contents of the day are flexible, and there is a choice about which products to make which can include cold process soap, organic glycerine 'melt and pour' soap, shampoo bars, liquid soap and other skincare products such as hand/body cream and lip balms.
There is also the option to book a two- or three-day course so that you are able to cover making more products, and/or to add time to discuss creating a new brand or identify if your are planning to start a new business.
If you wish to cover making more than one or two products, or would like to add on getting advice and on developing a unique brand identity, we have a two-day business course option.
