The Pros & Cons of Soapmaking Methods (Cold Process, Melt & Pour, Hot Process and Rebatch)
Back in 2002 was when I learned how to make soap by the melt and pour method. Then I found Lori Nova of The Nova Studio and I took classes from her on how to make soap by the cold process method and the hot process method. I thought I was going to lean toward the hot process method. Quite some time had passed before I decided to try the cold process method by using SoapQuick from Mission Peak Soap in Fremont. If you are new to soap making want to learn more the pros and cons of soap making methods, The Soap Queen recent posted a blog titled The Pros and Cons of Soapmaking Methods (Cold Process, Melt & Pour, Hot Process and Rebatch).
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.
