Cold process soap making (saponification à froid)

Background:

The soap (cold process soap) making process usually requires two sessions :

  1. First session of 3 hours – formulation (theory) and fabrication (practice).
  2. Wait 2 days.
  3. Second session of 3 hours – debriefing, cutting, stamping and styling of soaps.
  4. Dry soap for 4 weeks
  5. Use your soap.

To suit your needs, we have come up with two formulas of workshop :
