Homemade Soap. Compiled by Kathy Miller - see info at fruchbabefonbei.cf fruchbabefonbei.cf In trying to put together this handout, I realize I have a ton of stuff. How do Beeswax and Honey Make. Soap Beyer? • All handmade soaps, even those with no beeswax or honey, are naturally 1/3 glycerin, a humectant. Soap making can be as simple or as complicated as you'd like. Making your own soap allows you to choose the ingredients and fragrances that go into it.

Your soap making recipe will, through a simple but controlled process, chemically bond these two ingredients into a new compound — Soap! The below is only meant as an introduction to your options and each section could be expanded upon with enough information to literally fill books.

A lot of people shy away from making soap due to experience with the harsh lye soap their grandmothers made or because the thought of putting caustic soda into personal care products scares or puts them off.

As I shared above, soap making is essentially the chemical reaction between oils, which are acids, and lye, which is a base. Together they will form a completely new material which will be gentle and nearly neutral in PH.

Soap Making: 71 Homemade Soap Recipes

Water You use water in soap making to activate the lye and disperse it through the oils. Most of this water evaporates out of your bars during the curing process. That means that your finished bars might be slightly smaller than when you first took them out of their molds. Trace time can speed up and the shade of the soap may differ from what you expect.

Most soap recipes include oils but some have a lot more, or less. Soaps made from a single oil, such as castile olive oil soap are uncommon because very few single oils make a good soap. Different oils give different properties to soap including hardness, lather, creaminess, and conditioning.

Most soap recipes are also super-fatted.

What We’re Reading

This means adding extra oils at the very end of the soap making process that will be free-floating in your bars. Ones that you know will be simple and have a high success rate. Use only small amounts of beeswax in your recipes since it stops lathering at larger quantities. Coconut oil — Coconut Oil creates a hard bar with loads of fluffy lather and cleansing power.

Olive oil — Olive oil Pomace soap made with olive oil is sensitive, conditioning, and great for all skin types. Palm oil — Palm Oil a great oil for soap making but one that is very controversial. Palm plantations in south-east Asia have led to devastating deforestation and loss of habitat for animals such as Orangutans.

Sweet Almond oil — Sweet Almond Oil used for its light feeling and ability to moisturize and condition the skin. Soap does not require preservatives since the water that you use in the recipe will evaporate out. There are two main antioxidants that soap makers use in very small quantities at the very end of the soap making process.

Another idea is to use oils in your recipe like sesame or beeswax since they will impart their own unique and natural fragrances. For making soap at home are suitable utensils and tools made of glass, plastic and stainless steel.

Pots, bowls and cups for mixing must be large enough so that you can put all the components in them and still have room for the free mixing.

Capacities where there will be an alkaline solution, should be heat resisting. All items that you use for making soap in any case no longer use for food. The most important tool - exact scales with divisions isn't less 1 gram. The scales should be large enough such that it could accommodate a half-liter of liquid. Fluid will be measured by weight rather than volume, to maintain measurement accuracy.

We would also need goggles, gloves and an apron to protect; hand grater for rubbing soap base or soap residue, a machine for grinding plants.

For the molds can be taken out of the cups of yogurt, disposable tableware, food containers, silicone bakeware.

Also on offer are special silicone molds for soap. You can still use plastic or silicone molds for ice. These molds come in handy if you want to create a tiny soap for decoration. Necessary equipment and tools to make soap: Balance with a big bowl 2. Food Thermometer 3. Spoon made of stainless steel or plastic strainer 4.

Measuring spoons of stainless steel 5. The glass pipette for dispensing essential oils and liquid dyes 6. A large bowl for mixing 7. Heatproof bowl or jar with markings and spout. Double boiler and pans of stainless steel You can use the microwave. Sharp knife We need to cut the soap base and to trim the edge of the finished soap.

Moulds for soap Spray oil Mortar and pestle for grinding dry leaves and grass.

Beaters, graters, spatulas, clips, funnel, sieve Beater needed for mixing the ingredients. The sieve is used for filtering of a hot basis at its flood in the form that soap was without lumps. Grater need for rubbing baby soap, grinding of various fillers, such as, for example, lemon peel or orange.

Moulds for cookies Goggles, gloves, mask, towels and cloth for wrapping of soap A small spray Its filled with rubbing alcohol or vodka-drenched and sprayed in the form of a soap base.

It improves coupling with a following layer at manufacturing of multilayered soap and removes bubbles from a basis surface. The method used here is the cold process method. Some heating is required but it is very low temperature. The recipe used here is a basic soap recipe however there are many other recipes which use different ingredients to achieve a specific type of soap Soap making may not appear relevant to the issue of sustainability or development however it forms a suitable basis for a sustainable social enterprise.

Also discussed in this workshop is a bit on the science behind soap; the chemical reactions that take place to create it.

Introduction 5 Minutes A look into how soap is relevant in the developing world Soap making forms a suitable basis for a sustainable social enterprise abroad. Projects in Tanzania, South Africa and Nigeria have been set up to train the local community in how to make soap.

People can create a sustainable business from this on either a small or large scale. Soap making requires very little materials and equipment. The majority of the ingredients are easy to get hold and often found in the local community. Things like packaging for soaps offers further social enterprise opportunities What makes soap so attractive as a social enterprise is its flexibility. On a small scale people can make soap and sell it within their community however with funding or continued growth a company making and selling soap can employ a significant number of people.

With enough success the soap can be begin to be exported Theory 5 Minutes A little bit about the science behind soap making The main process involved in soap making is saponification. Saponification is the name for a chemical reaction between an acid and a base to form a salt. In the cold process method you mix an oil or fat Acid with Lye Base to form the soap Salt The base must always be composed of one hydroxide ion.

Here you are using lye Sodium hydroxide which contains one sodium ion and one hydroxide ion. The sodium ion doesnt take part in the reaction, just the hydroxide ion. Other bases can be used such as potassium hydroxide but this is normally used for liquid soap The acid can take a variety of forms.

Each acid has a unique combination of triglycerides Compounds with 3 fatty acids attached to a single molecule of glycerol. The amount of base required to react with the acid will depend on the chemical structure of the acid When the acid and base are mixed together the triglycerides release the single glycerol molecule Which turns into skin nourishing glycerine which enables the fatty acids to combine with hydroxide ions to form soap.

Essentially two reactions occur. The first is turning the glycerol into glycerine and the second is the acid and base reacting to form the salt soap w is the saponification table. It is a table demonstrating how different acids affect the outcome of the soap. Explaining the terms: 1. SAP How many milligrams of baser is required to completely saponify 1 gram of an acid. This is normally given in terms of how much potassium hydroxide is needed 2.

If a bar of soap is too soft it will dissolve too quickly and become too mushy. The desired outcome is achieved by combining hard and soft oils 3. Cleansing This is how well the acid cleans.Learn more in the Jazzed About Gel Phase post. Your soap will be ready to use immediately after it hardens.
