(Evening module): Labelling and Compliance Course
Before we get started with specific techniques and styles, we’ll cover some of the most important information you’ll need to successfully operate a soap making business – regulatory compliance.

We’ll cover compliant labelling procedures, weights and measures, producing product information files, calculating allergens, and producing batch sheets. We’ll also cover the most up-to-date CPNP assessment information, as well as other critical items that can affect your business now and in the future.

Natural Liquid & Cream Soap Making Course
Start the day with the Soap School taking you through the skills and techniques to make your own
Liquid soaps, in all their forms, outsell bar soaps 8:1 so this a real bonus in any soap making repertoire.
We will teach you all the differences between making solid bar soaps and natural liquid soaps. You will learn about the ingredients that will produce the best results and how you can utilise your own favourite additions into your recipes.
Whilst the cooking process of the liquid soaps takes a couple of hours we will have plenty of time to talk about the Luxurious Cream soaps.
Cream soaps are one of the most delicious and exciting soaps to create. Their natural soft silky texture and naturally pearlised appearance lends itself to several exclusive products and we will explore these including making a luxury shaving cream and delicious foaming shower smoothies.
Traditional Cold Process Soap Making Course
We will cover all the health and safety aspects of soap making before diving in and teaching you core fundamentals of traditional cold process soap making. You will learn about the ingredients, equipment, and then dive right in to making your first soaps.
