How to create soap recipes

by Allie

I've been wanting to start a soap making business.

The only issue I have is that the only soap base I know is from what I've seen online.

I don't want to take someone's recipe.

Although I don't know how to make a recipe of my own for the base.

How would I go about that? I've seen SoapCalc and so forth but it's wrong to take a recipe so I'm at a loss of what to do.

Help me please!!


Your first step to starting a soap making business is to learn the craft backwards and forwards.

Read everything you can get your hands on, take notes and practice, practice, practice.

Start your practise using other peoples recipes to get a feel for how the process works and to decide what elements of the recipes you like.

This will help you decide what type of ingredients you will want to use when it comes time to create your own recipe.

Visit my page Soap Making Oils and scroll down to the heading "Formulating a Recipe" for information on how to create your own soap recipe.

Check out SoapCalc some more, clicking and reading each of the links at the top of the page and clicking on the numbers of each section. Lye calculators are an invaluable tool you will need to create your own soap recipes so it is very important to learn how to use them.

Good luck,
