Liquid Soap & Shower Gel Class - Jan. 23


Sign up for our February 19 class here!

Make your own luscious organic liquid soaps and shower gels using the hot process method and two kinds of lye! If you don't know what hot process is, or lye, no worries we have you covered. In this class, students will learn to make versatile recipes for sink, shower and bath. If you're making them for yourself, you'll save money by making your own liquid soaps and reduce the use of plastics. If you're making to sell, you're hitting a lucrative market as liquid soaps outsell bar soaps and don't require any cure time.

In this fun class we will make one batch of shower gel from scratch using easily sourced ingredients that attendees can replicate at home. Students will learn how to incorporate specialty ingredients such as botanicals and more, and take home samples of the shower gel made in class.

Liquid soaps and shower gels are a great addition to a product line or to make at home for yourself and friends. Save money by making your own liquid soaps, or make money by adding them to your product lineup.

Discussion includes:

  • Infusing herbs
  • Incorporating colors
  • Where to source ingredients
  • Packaging options
  • Price points of soaps
  • Ingredients to consider for creating healing soaps 
  • and much more

This class is taught by Marla Bosworth, CEO of Back Porch Soap Company. She will share her knowledge and experience of 25 years as a plant-based skincare product formulator. Marla will also discuss best packaging options, labeling requirements, pricing and marketing suggestions for liquid soaps.

This is intended for aromatherapists, massage therapists, spa owners, handmade soap and indie beauty entrepreneurs and for anyone who wants to make incredibly good-for-your-body products. No prior experience is necessary!

This class is open to beginners through advanced beauty makers. Students will receive a class handout that includes instructions, formulas and a valuable list of Marla's favorite places to buy materials, supplies and equipment.
