Everything you need to know about formulating liquid soap using lye


Designing and making your own range of liquid soap products can be fascinating, fun and rewarding and lead to beautiful skin as well as the potential of starting your own business.


This fully-comprehensive instructional guide has been carefully compiled using our knowledge and experience of over 20 years.  It leads you through making your own range of soap products which can be tailored to suit different skin types and particular needs. 



  • Lye safety
  • Key oils, butters and waters used in liquid soaps
  • Fatty acid characteristics and how they can effect your liquid soap products
  • Testing and adjusting the pH of your liquid soap products
  • Thickening your liquid soap
  • How to make liquid soap using the hob and slow cooker methods
  • Recipes


The recipes included can be modified to suit individual requirements.

We promote the use of natural ingredients where possible, but where there is a synthetic ingredient that we feel gives a more professional finish to a product we will include those too.  

Whilst we don't specifically focus on organic ingredients should you wish to substitute an ingredient - for example coconut oil for its organic version, you are completely at liberty to do so.
