How to Make Baby Soap: Buttermilk Bastille Baby Bar
Have you ever heard of Bastille soap? I never have. Bastille is a term coined by some soap makers long time ago. See Castille soap is traditionally made by using 100% olive oil. Bastille soap is all most 100% olive oil but it typically has 10 to 30% other oils and butters. So the high amount of olive oil makes it a super nourishing and mild soap for baby. If you would like to learn how to make this bar of soap check out the post titled How to Make Baby Soap: Buttermilk Bastille Baby Bar from Lovin Soap.
I have a B.A. in Mass Communication and took my first melt and pour soapmaking class in 2002. Since then I got hooked making my own bath and products. I have taken various courses in Soapmaking (Melt & Pour, Cold Process, Hot Process), lotion making (lotions, creams, lotion sticks), bath products (bath salts, body scrubs), body products (lip balm, body butters, body balms, whipped butters) and more. Most of all of my classes were taught by Lori Nova of The Nova Studio in Point Richmond, Ca. I have taught courses since 2004 at various locations. I have worked as an Event Coordinator at Michaels Redwood City.
