This class is for those who want to learn about the most versatile type of soap, which is liquid soap, & then how to use it to make face/body wash. The liquid soap is a soap base, similar to castile soap, and it can be added to various recipes to make a variety of products, not only face/body wash, but also dish soap, laundry detergent & more. It is just one of the ingredients used to make face/body wash; other skin-nourishing ingredients are added so that your face/body wash is best for your particular skin type, including honey, natural/carriers oils like avocado oil or jojoba oil, butters, aloe vera & coconut milk. We'll cover the following: - the science behind soap making, saponification - lye information & safety (read more below: "Safety First!") - the materials and ingredients needed and where to get them - how to formulate a soap recipe based on your needs (e.g. dry skin, sensitive skin), using a very handy online soap calculator - making your liquid soap, which includes a cooking phase, and what to do at home afterwards; liquid soap can be used after 24 hours - making your face/body wash, customized by you for your particular skin care needs Formulating a balanced recipe is the most important part of liquid soap making, so my goal is for you to go home feeling very capable & comfortable with the intricacies of the soap calculator. Before making your liquid soap, you'll be able to choose a recipe that is best for your skin type (e.g. more conditioning or bubbly). You'll take home about 28 fl oz. of liquid soap, customized with the essential oils of your choice, and 4 fl oz of face/body wash, also customized with the ingredients of your choice. You'll also go home with 6 liquid soap recipes and thorough, detailed instructional handouts, including ingredients, lye info & history, recipes, materials/equipment & suppliers. Everything is provided in the class, as well as some snacks & tea. Safely First! Since lye, KOH, is used in this class, you will be provided the best safety equipment for the class. A common question: is lye necessary for soap making? Yes! A base is needed with one hydroxide ion, so Potassium Hydroxide is used. But, don't worry, there is no lye in the final product due to the chemical reaction that takes place between the carrier oils and the lye, which is converted into salt! My goal is for you to understand what lye is, how to handle lye & to respect lye, not fear it! Come to class to learn more about lye, including its history & many other uses! You must wear closed-toe shoes, a long-sleeved shirt and pants to this class. This class is available for up to 2 people. Beeswax lip balm making can be added for $15/person. Contact Lindsay if interested and if you have any questions. I hope to meet you soon! General Class Information: - Very small class sizes! Choose to take a private class just for you or choose a semi-private class on the online calendar for only 2 people per class. Small groups allow for a more personal, enjoyable experience, in which you can feel comfortable to ask all of your questions and then go home ready to try out your new skill! - Available every day of the week! Set up a private class any day of the week at a time that works best for you or book a slot in an available class on the online calendar. - 100% hands-on! Make the products yourself; you won't watch, you'll do. - Customize your products! I supply the recipes & ingredients & you choose which work best for you. - Bring nothing! Everything is provided in the class with NO extra materials fee. - It's all in the details! Take home a thorough, detailed instructional handout with recipes, ingredients, materials list & suppliers.

Hi, my name is Lindsay. I am the former owner of Blue Dot Organics based out of San Francisco. I taught a variety of large-group classes in the making of soap, candles, lotion, lip balm and various other body and household natural products. I closed this business in the fall of 2014 and traveled abroad with my husband. We returned to Pacifica, California in the fall of 2015 and I began teaching again, but on a smaller scale until May of 2016. My husband was offered a job in Long Beach; so since July of 2016, I have been offering private classes, as well as semi-private classes on my online calendar, for up to 2 people per class on Ocean Blvd. You can enjoy an informative, fun class tailored to you in a relaxed atmosphere. My Soap Making & Teaching Background: I have been making & learning about natural, body-care products since 2012, when I took my first soap-making class with my sister-in-law in Quincy, Massachusetts. It was so fun that I immediately moved on to lotion, candles, bath bombs & more! I had been a teacher long before learning how to make natural products though, so when I moved to San Francisco in 2013, I decided to mesh my 2 specialty areas and open Blue Dot Organics. I have taught in various capacities ever since I graduated with a Bachelor's in Education in 2006, but I prefer the small-group setting for a more personal experience and so you can get the most out of the class! I hope to meet you soon!
