The Science of Cold Process Soap Making for Beginners (in English)
In this free, introductory course, Jacqueline de-mystifies the most feared aspects of cold-process soap making, reveals the differences between detergent and soap and demystifies the confusing world of soap, syndets, glycerin and combo bars.
She reveals secrets that other soap makers don't want you to know and helps you to prepare for your entry to the Institute's full paid distance learning course entitled HOW TO BE THE PERFECT SOAP MAKER.
Discover for FREE the most important aspects of soap making !
What Jacqueline doesn't teach you is any practical aspects of soap making.
The most important aspect of this craft is to fully understand the science since, without this underpinning knowledge, the saponification process will control YOU when in reality it should be you controlling the saponification process!
There are a total of 5 mini-lectures. Most are presented in the form of videos converted from keynote presentations with text, images, and audio.
The lectures are presented in an easy to follow and understand manner.
Follow in the footsteps of your ancestors
Make no doubt about it, there is a reason that soap has been crafted for thousands of years using the alchemic principle of marrying an alkaline with an acid, a method that has remained alive for over 4000 years and remains much the same today.
So come and dip your toe into the soap making cauldron and conjure up your inner soap-maker to the benefit of your health and the health of the planet too.
