This listing is for a 3-hour virtual lesson for making solid shampoo and conditioner bars. 

This class is intended for individuals who are interested in making their own solid and shampoo conditioner bars or who have tried making their own and are looking for better recipes and methods of making. You will gain insight and tips from a professional with more than 25 years experience formulating haircare, soaps, candles and skincare products.

Marla Bosworth will teach you the techniques needed to create these Lush-type bars that will last for up to 80 washes – the equivalent of nearly four bottles of liquid shampoo! Best of all, no packaging is required, making them environmentally friendly.

These syndet bars are made differently than the cold process method. They are much better for the hair and scalp than cold process due in part to the ability to adjust pH to match hair pH. Cold process soap, on the other hand, has too high of a pH (8-9 range) that cannot be adjusted because oils and water would separate. Hair and scalp pH ranges from 4.5-5.5. Using cold process soaps for hair can cause damage to both hair and scalp. 

Average sale price of these bars is $15 for a 1.9 oz. bar (take that, cold process soap!), and there is no cure time nor packaging required. 

Don't worry if you're new to soapmaking; this class is designed for beginners and aims to alleviate any fears you may have about the process. Marla will guide you through step-by-step, providing an information-packed class handout with detailed instructions, recipes, and a valuable supplier list. By the end of the class, you'll have the knowledge and skills to recreate these bars at home.

Not only are these bars practical for everyday use, but they also make great travel companions. They won't get soggy in the shower and can be used by both women and men. Plus, as they are solid and compact, they're perfect for on-the-go adventures.

Marla is the CEO of Back Porch Soap Company. She has been formulating plant-based beauty products for 25 years.
