    What kind of soap do you want to make, cold process/hot process or are you planning on making melt and pour?? Are you looking to sell it or making it for yourself?

    hi there

    thanks for your quick reply.

    i think what i need after reading online is the melt and pour stuff. I do want to sell it so think I will just go with that.

    Where is the best place to buy it??

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I'm a traditional cold process soapmaker, so i'm not too sure about Melt and Pour kits. I think there's a company called 'melt and pour supplies' that sell bases and fragrance etc. If you're not sure about the safety certification process I think they can help with that too.

    Hope that helps

    I have ordered a few bits from The soap kitchen in Devon and they also have simple recipe sheets and instructions, mind you they would have to be simple for me!!!

    "An idiot can make melt and pour" i was told. Well, don't believe it!!!!

    I had thought about going down the line of bath products but when I looked into further all the certification you need put me right off. Every ingredient needs passed then every product needs passed and if you change and ingredient in the product needs passed again. Really put me off. Think I will stick to my candles.

    Cheers.

    I Know! It's a nightmare, it took me so long to figure it all out. Just when I thought I was getting somewhere, i found out that I needed trade approved scales to comply with the weights and measures laws!! That was a couple more hundred out the door!! and I have to pay for calibration every year!!

    But now it's all a distant memory, thankfully!
