So, you've made a few batches of soap and are now ready to dig into creating your own recipes, plus you're curious about how ingredients impact your design options. 

Bring your laptop and follow along as we walk through the finer points of using lye, fragrance oil, and essential oil calculators. You'll get a fuller picture of how fatty acids work in your designs, and what all of those curious designations on soap/lye calculators (Stearic/INS/Ricinoletic/etc.) mean for your formulation. We'll also cover how different oils, additives and scents impact set-up time, color clarity, and bar feel, plus different methods of working with natural color. 

In this class we'll also cover common pitfalls (False trace! Elusive emulsion! Volcano soap! to name a few). Bring soap fails and/or questions - we'll see if we can diagnose the situation. 

NOTE: This is a formulation class for those who have a basic knowledge of soap making/have made a few Cold Process Soap batches. 

We do not make soap in this class, rather, this is hands-on practice of the skills listed, above. You'll leave class with copious notes, hands on practice with various calculators, insights on working with scents, how to use natural color and additives, plus your own original recipes to try. 

Upon registration, you'll receive an email with South Boulder class location, what to bring, what to wear. Keep an eye out for this email!
