"Hand Crafted Soap Making Workshops held in Manila Philippines"

Some soap samples which participants of Caress By Nature Soap Making Workshop held in
Manila, Philippines have created.

For two (2) months, which started 8th of June 2013 until 8th of August,  we had series of Soap Making Workshops. It was successful as most of my participants being crafty as they are, we're able to establish a business all related to natural and organic skin and hair care cosmetics. The workshop we did included the following where participants did hands on:

1.  Cold Process Bar Soap Making
          Creating a soap recipe using soapcalc (www.soapcalc.net) lye calculator
2.  Hot Process Bar Soap Making
3.  All Natural Liquid Soap Making (using 65% to 80% Extra Virgin Olive Oil, what we all know as Castile Soap)
          a.  Creating a liquid recipe using Summer Bee Meadows Lye Calculator
          b.  Actual liquid Soap Making/cooking on crock pot
          c.  Clarity Testing of the cooked soap paste
          d.  Liquid Soap Paste Dillution
          e.  Adding Natural Preservatives
          g.  Fragrancing {2 (two) methods}
          h.  Thickening
           I.  Tinting or Coloring
4.  Basic Artisan Soaps, Working with Soap Colourants, Layering and Swirling





We also tackled about soap packaging, soap stamping and many other things.




Each one had the chance to make their own natural hand crafted soaps, it was a very tiring 1st Workshop day but, you can see people smiling despite all.
