Discover the creamy world of milk soaps! When used in place of distilled water, milk is a lovely addition to cold process soap. Many folks consider milk soaps to be milder, more conditioning, and have a creamier lather.
But using milk in cold process soap takes a bit more care. Although they are mostly water, milks also contain proteins, sugars and fats. These components bring beneficial qualities to soap, but they can also make soapmaking a little trickier.
Fear not! This class will take the mystery out of making beautiful milk soaps. We will have 3 hours to explore the various techniques that you can use to incorporate milk into your soaps. This unique next-level class includes:
When all is said and done, you'll have the knowledge & confidence you need to make your own milk soaps at home, including a thorough handout with clear instructions/resources and three full-sized (cured) bars of milk soap, just like the ones made in class.
Prerequisite Details: This intermediate-level soapmaking class is designed for students who have either taken our Cold Process 101 Class, the 2-Day Soap Making Boot Camp, or who have experience making soap from scratch on their own. If you have never made soap from scratch before (cold process or hot process), you must first take our Cold Process 101 Soap class (offered on Friday night) which demonstrates soapmaking using a 4-pound batch and teaches all the basics (including lye safety) needed for all beginning soap makers. This is an age 18+ class since making soap from scratch involves working with lye (aka sodium hydroxide).
How about Alternative Non-Milk Liquids?
