Saponification Versus Cure Time in Soap Making
Would you believe that many new cold process soap makers seem to get confused when it come to defining saponifaction time and cure time when making handmade soap? The two terms are not interchangeable and it is important to know the difference. If you are confused between the difference of the two, Lovin' Soap Studio explains it very well in a post called Saponification Versus Care Time in Soap Making.
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.
