Gel Phase in Soap Making – Preventing and Forcing Gel Phase
Are you new to cold process soap making? You are hearing about the gel phase and wondering what it is all about. In a recent post from Lovin' Soap called Gel Phase in Soap Making - Prevent and Forcing Gel Phase talks about what the gel phase is, preventing and forcing the phase. There are some really nice pictures showing the differences.
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.
