We only use the Cold Process method to make soap. So called because there is no external heat added to the process. (There's plenty of heat created tho' - this is an exothermic chemical reaction which means it produces its own heat!) Below are some progress shots of the making of the Spa Day Facial Soap. This soap contains only natural products.
The soapmaker & the photographer are the same person here, so no action shots as I couldn't figure out how to mix without dropping the camera into the soap!
So that is the basic process. Making soap the old fashioned way calls for lots of patience (which I don't have), waiting the first 24 hours until I can unmould it, and then having to wait another 4 weeks until I can try it! (I never can wait the full 6 weeks).
Hope you enjoyed this little look into the life of soap :-)
