Home :: Making Soap and Cosmetics


  • Free Soap Recipes – from Elaine White – she wrote the book on soap making. This details real soap making, with all the dangers of handling Lye. Watching Fight Club put me off the whole idea, personally. (Via Lifehacker.)
  • TeachSoap – a good site with lots of information on making soap and a few other things. Concentrates a bit more on safe ways of making soap – basically melting and reforming pre-made soap, but adding your own colours and fragrances. (Thanks to Make:.)
