Olive Oil in Soap Making – Properties + Recipes
When I make cold process soap, I normally use a product from Mission Peak Soap called Soap Quick. One of the ingredients is Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Olive oil helps to product a moisturizing creamy rich lather to a bar of soap. If you want to learn about the different types of Olive Oil, Soap recipes and more, you may want to check out Lovin' Soap Studio's recent posting called Olive Oil in Soap Making - Properties + Recipes.
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.
