Cold Process Carrot Soaps

The history of Scent Savvy has very humble beginnings! It started out as a hobby for Bill Baldwin to pass time while he was rehabilitating from surgery. Knowing that Bill liked to do things to benefit people, a friend mentioned soap making and suggested that he go look at a soap company in a nearby town. As his interest in his hobby grew, he began doing research on his own about soap. His own daughter has battled with a skin condition her whole life, so his immediate focus was on formulating a bar of soap that would calm and soothe her skin (thus, the birth of our wildly popular Creamy Carrot soap). In the meantime, his rehab was going well but it became clear that he would not be able to perform the job he’d been doing his whole life. It was time for a career change! His success with the Creamy Carrot soap inspired him to create and experiment even more. Starting out in his garage, Bill began to accumulate more and more products and equipment. Soon, he moved into the kitchen, then the den. And then the other rooms. He had the best smelling house on the block! When it became apparent he had nowhere else to go, he moved into the building in Richland Hills, Texas where we are today. And, Nature’s Garden products are everywhere! Family owned and operated, we have 4 very busy full time employees! We’re all involved with every aspect of handcrafting, marketing and selling excellent bars of soap! In addition to that, we’re working to develop body wash to add to our line of products! From Main Street in New Bern, North Carolina to Main Street in Grapevine, Tx, our soaps are becoming more and more popular. And we all believe that when God closes a door, He opens a window because that’s how Scent Savvy was born!

1.  What’s your name & Your Company Name:  Scent Savvy Soaps and Bathworks

2.  Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business? Owner, Bill Baldwin, started out soap making as a hobby while he recovered from surgery.  He was motivated to create a bar of soap that would improve his daughter’s skin condition which she has suffered from all of her life.  We’ve been in business since 2010.

3.  What products do you make and sell?  Right now, we’re focusing on soap.  However, we’ve been developing a body wash, scrubs, lotions and lip balm.

4.  What are your business goals?  We’re not putting any limits on our dream.  We want mostly to continue to provide quality skin care products and maintain an excellent relationship with our customers and to continue to do the little “extras” for people that set up apart from other companies.  We’re getting into stores that are on the “main streets” of our state and beyond.

5.  What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  Gosh!  That’s like putting a person who loves chocolate in a chocolate factory and asking them to choose the chocolate they love best!  But seriously, we mostly use Essential oils and Fragrance Oils from Nature’s Garden and we LOVE them!  You would think that from supplier to supplier there wouldn’t be too much difference.  But Nature’s Garden is the best!

Cold Process Soap from Scratch

1.  What’s your name & Your Company Name:  Hello, I am Tanya from Titania’s Dreamy Delights

2.  Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?  I started my soaping journey almost 6 years ago….. it all began when I was looking for a rainy-day school holiday activity for my children and I found an online supplier for ‘melt & pour’ soap bases.  My kids weren’t really very interested, so I used it to make moulded soaps myself.  I quickly decided that adding luscious shea or mango butter, as well as milk powders and aloe vera gel, gave me soap that I could actually use.  Up until then I found that any store-bought soap dried out my skin terribly and gave me an irritating itch.  I was hooked!

I had never felt particularly creative as a person (that is how I saw myself – that I didn’t have a creative bone in my body) and although I had been involved in personal development allowing me to work on and improve my mind, it wasn’t until I developed an interest in soaping as a hobby that I tapped into my unknown creativity!  I felt just like a thirsty soul being offered a drink of crystal clear water…. I fell in love.  It was a wonderful awakening for me and continues to be to this day.

I began formulating my Cold Process (made from ‘scratch’) soaps more than four years ago and have since added bath, skin care and facial care products; all designed to gently care for and pamper skin. I have a background in skin care training/sales and use this knowledge to create products that are designed to target all skin types and conditions.  My area of specialisation is cold process soap-making and I have an almost magical feeling making every batch of soap – the chemistry and synergy created expand my awareness, my ability to live in the moment and simply makes me happy.  I feel there is so much more I can do to develop in this area and I am enjoying the journey immensely.  I hope I never arrive at my ‘destination’ as it is just too much fun continuing to learn and grow.

3.  What products do you make and sell?  ~ see paragraph above; plus soy wax aroma melts.

4.  What are your business goals?  ~ to continue my soaping journey, developing improved recipes to suit every skin type.  In doing this I will be servicing my customers needs with products that not only help their skin – they satisfy all the senses (except maybe taste!).

5.  What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  So far I have only purchased fragrance oils from Natures Garden.  Shipping cost to Australia where I live can be quite pricey so I maximize this by getting top quality fragrances that work so well in my cold process soap, bath and body care products.

Farmstead Bath & Body Interview

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

1. My name is Lisa Nakonechny, and I haven’t incorporated, but I call my business “Farmstead Bath & Body“.

2. We live and work on a farm.  Its always been my desire to create a cottage industry that allows me to follow my natural interests and talents while working from our farm.  Soap fits!!  Not only that, but soap really fits because I can also incorporate another interest of mine, and that is sharing my love of agriculture with others.  Each of my bars of soap will tell an artistic story of what life is like on a farm in our part of the world here in northern Alberta, Canada.  Farming is a wonderful way life, although fraught with challenges.  It will be a lot of fun tying in something fun, artistic, and most of all practical, like soap, with something equally fun, practical and even artistic like farming.

I haven’t been in business long – just a week so far!!  It has taken me over a year to decide if I wanted to turn my hobby into a business.  I needed to be sure I had the support of my farmer husband, because farming takes so much time, and so will soap making.  I’m sure combining my two passions will be both rewarding and challenging.

3. I am a big believer that something worth doing is worth doing well, so my product offering is small to begin with.  I have 10 varieties of cold process soaps.  Most of them use (your) fragrance oils, although I recognize that not everyone can or wants to use synthetic fragrances, so I also have a couple of varieties that either do not have any added essential or fragrance oils, or they use only essential oils.  My most favourite soap in this category is called “60 Grit Peppermint” – a super-duper-waker-upper-in-the-shower kind of bar! It uses peppermint essential oil and d-limonene as well as cornmeal to super-stimulate your bod in the morning!  Besides cold process soap, I also make a hand lotion I call “Mmmm Honey!” that I like because it sticks around after you wash your hands.  It does have a slightly greasier quality to it, but that is what makes it stick around and moisturize so well.  My body lotion is not greasy at all and is nameless so far.  I also make a wonderful, light and dreamy “Rose Body Souffle” which is a whipped body butter with ingredients added to reduce greasiness.  Also, a (nameless) sugar scrub with natural cocoa butter, brown sugar, and coffee beans is a feminine form of “Fast Orange” that my farmer likes.  Last, but not least, a “Lip Saver and Smoother” lip balm that sometimes shows up with some mica for a feminine tint for the whole-wheat hotties out there.

4. Other than our family farm, I am new to business. My soaping business goal is simple: I want to serve you, my customer, with a high quality, genuine hand made bath and body product. Because you love the products, you share my business with your circle of influence, and the cycle continues.  I am able to work from home, and support our traditional farming family of five beyond the basics.

5. Because I live in Canada, importing from the US costs a lot.  I buy the items that make the most sense economically.  So far, that is 8 oz and 16 oz bottles of your fragrance oils.  I love that you offer a $1.00 discount on each bottle when you purchase at least 5.  The flat rate boxes through the USPS are especially nice, as there are no brokerage or customs fees that way.  Because of this, I buy 98% of my fragrance oils from you alone. (I was looking for a “dirt” fragrance oil, and had to go to a competitor ;( ). I love how your website gives SO MUCH information including reviews that endeavours to help us make decisions without the benefits of sniffing.  I also love the document you made that lists all the fragrances and how they perform in cold process soaps. You have gone above and beyond to serve your customer, and you have a customer for life in me!  My favourite fragrance oils are: Oatmeal, Milk & Honey, Cannabis Rose, Peony, and OMG Olive as they are my best sellers so far.  I use them mainly in cold process soaps, although I have used them in lotions as well.  I find your fragrances perform just as expected, and stay potent in the bottle longer than a year.  I can’t praise you enough for how you have treated me as a customer – both with tremendous products, and with stellar customer service!

Because I am 40++, keeping up with social media is challenging! But I do have a Facebook and Twitter account.  Please visit my Facebook page and “Like” it, so we can strike up a conversation, and I don’t feel like I am talking to myself!  Also, my webpage is barely a week old!  Getting good product photos is interesting, and it is a work in progress. Check back often as it continues to be created.

Picture: I am usually the one behind the camera in our family…but I found a picture of me on my favourite Belgium, Blaze. I designed a soap that was inspired by these beautiful animals called “Belgium Hayride”. It uses your Cafe Caramel fragrance oil.  I’ve included a picture of it too.  It hasn’t cured fully yet.

Soap Making: Where Do I Start?

Thursday, August 9th, 2012

M&P soap, CP soap, CPOP soap, HP soap, which method is right for you?

For the next few weeks, we at Natures Garden will be writing a series devoted to soap making.  We hope that you find this series informative and that it may help to answer any unresolved questions in your mind when it comes to making soap.

The first decision you need to make before you start making soap is what soap you want to make.

Just so that everyone is starting off on the same base, a general definition for soap is:  an emulsified product of an alkali treated fat yielding a cleansing agent.

There are 4 different types of soap making.  They are M&P (melt and pour), CP (cold process), HP (hot process), and CPOP (cold process oven process).  Each group has its own pros and cons.   Each process differs in varying ways, but there are two similarities that all of the groups share:  Each group’s process has already gone through, or must go through the chemical reaction of saponification.  And, each process results in finished soap.

MP soap

One of the greatest advantages of melt and pour soaps is that the actual soap making chemical process (lye process) has already be completed; technically making this a ready-made product.  When working with M&P, you are dealing with soap that essentially only needs melted, fragranced, colored, and molded.

For precautionary reasons, this is a perfect soap making process for anyone with small children or pets, since the process does not require working with lye.  Melt and pour soap is also a great place to start if you have never made soap before.  The steps are very simple.  Melt the soap, add color, add fragrance, and, place in mold to harden.  That is it!  There is no cure time.  Soap bars are able to be used once they are popped out of the mold.  Coloring M&P soap is also very predictable.  Unlike the other soap making processes, the color that your liquid soap is before you pour it in the mold, will be the same color of your finished bars.  There is no color morphing since that soap has already been saponified.

Melt and Pour soap is also known as glycerin soap.  Glycerin is a natural by-product of the chemical reaction of lye and water.  Having glycerin as a component in your M&P soap is very beneficial because glycerin is not only an emollient keeping the moisture in your skin, but it is also considered a humectant- absorbing the moisture from the air so that the skin does not dry out.  Additives such as herbs and exfoliates can also be added to M&P soap, resulting in bars that can do various things for your skin.

This is a very forgiving soap for error.  If soap hardens too quickly, it can always be re-melted in the microwave or by using a double boiler.  Since M&P is very pliable you can safely handle the soap without the worry of being burned by lye; forming swirls and other shapes.  This process is very cost effective, and allows for you to have a healthier bar of soap for your skin than any store bought brand that has had the glycerin stripped from it.

The cons of M&P soaps are that you do not have direct control of all of the ingredients in your soap.  Melt and Pour soap can also easily burn during the heating process so you will want to watch it closely.  Because glycerin is the most prominent ingredient, your M&P bars are softer and tend to not last as long as the other processed bars of soaps.  This is because glycerin is quick dissolving in water.  Aesthetically speaking, due to its humectant tendencies, this soap is very prone to sweating (or beading).

CP soap

Cold process soap is generally accepted as the most commonly used process by soap crafters.  The term cold process is actually attributed to the fact that there is no outside heating source required for saponification; the lye mixture itself heats and saponifies the oils.

The CP process includes making a lye water mixture, melting your oils, blending the lye water and oils together- bringing it to a very light trace, adding fragrance and/or color, and molding.  For the first 24 hours, your soap molds need to be insulated with towels or blankets.  After 24 hrs, the soap can be cut and laid out to cure.

If you are not a patient person, then one downfall of CP soaping is the cure time.  This averages 4-6 weeks before the soap is safe to use.  During the cure time a lot occurs.  Any residual lye is counteracted by saponification. This cure time is needed to make soap milder on your skin.  Any excess water is evaporated out, allowing for a nice hard bar of soap.  The soap bars have to be manually rotated and flipped so that air touches all of the sides.  It is also during this time that soda ashing occurs.  This ash is not harmful, but it can be unsightly, especially if you have decorated the tops of your bars.

The biggest and most rewarding benefit of cold process soap is that you make it completely from scratch.  You control each and every aspect of the soap from beginning to end.  Because cold process soap directly relies on a chemical reaction to occur, ingredients and measurements have to be exact.  Each component of your cold process soap has a specific SAP value.  This value is the amount of lye needed to saponify each oil in your recipe.  Therefore, it is impossible to swap out anything or add anything once your lye water ratio has been figured out.  Adding a little too much lye can result in soap that is lye heavy.  This means that the ph level will be very high, and it could result in burns or irritation to your skin.  On the opposite end, adding too much oil can result in bars that are soft and greasy due to the unreacted oils.   CP recipes usually contain either palm oil or coconut oil, or both.  Their values in any recipe are generally 20-30%.  This is because these oils provide for a bar of soap that is gentle, lathers, and cleans.

With CP soaping it is very important to know how a fragrance oil will affect the mixture.  Some fragrance oils cause soap batter to accelerate trace, rice, discolor, or will seize the batch (become soap-on-a-stick).  Vice versa, there are also fragrance oils that do not adversely affect the soap batter, and allow for plenty of time to decorate.  Swirling is one decoration technique that requires soap batter that is slow to trace.  Trace can be affected by the actual soaping oils used in your recipe, the temperature of your lye solution, the temperature of your soaping oils, and by the fragrance oil you select.  This type of artistry provides an exclusive look that is almost impossible to duplicate again.  Columning and funneling can also be used with cp soap batter for a very unique look.

Since CP soap must undergo the saponification process, color morphing can become an issue.  FD&C or D&C dyes tend to morph (change color) in the presence of lye.  Oxides and ultramarines can withstand the high ph environment of the saponification process, and are much less likely to morph in CP soap.  Depending on the ingredients found in mica pigments, you will find some micas that do not morph in CP soap, and some that do.  To easily test to see if your color choice will morph in CP soap, you can always add a small amount of your color to a small amount of lye mixture and observe any changes.  This will save you the frustration of ruining an entire batch of soap that is colored a color you do not desire.

HP Soap

HP soaping is the second most popular process of crafting soap.  With this process you now have the control of what goes into the soap like CP provides with the ready-to-use-now element of M&P soaps.

Hot Process soap has steps very similar to the CP soap steps, but varies in that you are adding heat to the equation to speed up the saponification process.  The HP process includes: making your lye water mixture, adding your oils to the heat source, blending the lye water and oils together, stir, cook, stir, stir, stir, add fragrance/ additives, stir some more.  With this process, it is not until the soap batter is closer to a solid than a liquid that it is scooped and packed into a mold.  Since the saponification process has already completed from the heat, there is no need to insulate your mold.

This process is done in a crock pot or on a stove top.  Crock pots are recommended over stove tops because a crock pot allows for slow, even heating of the batter and it is less likely to scorch.  The most important key to remember when doing this method is to stir and stir often.  One of the biggest benefits of this heat addition is that it does not require a curing period.  Although, for harder, milder bars that will last longer, Natures Garden suggests that you allow these bars to cure for at least a week before using.

The finished soap bars of the hot process have a very rustic appeal.   The soap bars individually are not completely uniform in shape nor are they completely smooth.  This is due to the scoop and pack method of filling the molds.  Color morphing, like experienced in the CP method, can also be a problem.  Therefore, choosing colorants that can withstand high ph environments is a must when making HP soap. Getting uniform coloring throughout your bars of soap will be more challenging with HP than with CP.

CPOP Soap

Often dubbed as the best of both worlds, CPOP, or cold processed oven processed soap allows for cold processed soap to saponify quicker with the extra step of heat and therefore directly shortens the cure time.   This is a very good method for soap crafters who love to do CP without the long wait of cure time.

The CPOP method includes:  preheating your oven to 170 degrees F, making a lye water mixture, mixing your oils, blending the lye water and oils together- bringing it to a very light trace, adding fragrance and/or color, molding, baking for 1- 2 1/2 hrs, turn off the oven, and let it sit for 24 hours in oven.  Finally, remove, cut, and start the cure time of 4 weeks.  This cure time allows for milder, harder bars of soap that will last longer.

Visually, CPOP soap bars are very close to that of CP bars.  The only slight difference is that the tops of CPOP bars are not as smooth as CP ones.  CPOP soap can appear dry on top, but this can easily be remedied by spraying the tops of the soap with rubbing alcohol.

In summary, the first step to soap making is deciding which type of soap making process is right for you.  Natures Garden will have two different soap making kits that will further help you.  We currently carry a melt and pour soap kit, and very soon a CP soap making kit.  Each of these kits will allow you to experience soap making first hand.  How fun is that!

Interview with Jolene From Southern Roots Natural Healing Store & Aromatherapy Shoppe

What’s your name & Your Company Name (Why Did you choose that name?):

Jolene Hull, Owner/Operator of Southern Roots Natural Healing Store & Aromatherapy Shoppe here! I chose this name based on the concept that natural products should really be naturally (many mass marketed products claim to be “natural”, but are not) made – my goal was to go back to my “roots” with my store and it’s products. All Natural and All Handmade with the highest quality ingredients.

 

How did you get into this business?

One of those light bulb moments in 2009 – I have always loved the idea of owning my own business. I started making soaps for gifts around the holidays for my dance team and I soon realized I wanted to make it more than a hobby.

 

What is your favorite part of this business?

Creating new and exciting items and experimenting with new ingredients.

 

What’s the most difficult part?

Labels! Trying to get that “look” to reflect the product you have made – it can be challenging at times.

What’s your favorite product or aspect of Natures Garden?

They have a great range of products at great prices. My favorite thing is that they are family owned.

What are your goals for the coming year for your business?

New and improved product lines for hair care and more variation of spa inspired items. We’re also going to start offering classes in our shop as well.

Everything Skin with NG and Kim

Monday, October 17th, 2011

Hi everyone!  My name is Kimberly Sanchez.

I am the CEO & creative artist of Natures Art Apothecary & Soap Company,  in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I began soaping when I was very young doing simple old fashioned lard and lye soap on the fire. I occasionally played at it as an adult and made it for friends and family. Most of my career I was a chef and herbalist. After a serious injury where I broke my back, I had to find something else to do. I rambled through retail jobs, made my way up through management, but it just wasn’t what I needed! I went back to making soap for a fundraising project for a group I belong to and my passion was born! I had discovered so much had changed in the soaping world! there were amazing fragrances and colors and molds and online communities! So I dove in with abandon. And that was it for me. I continued to test and experiment with all the new technology and items now available in the industry until I felt I had something worth sharing with the world. And so our little business began! My husband, Art, also caught the bug. I spent many days working as a retail manager and many late nights teaching him to soap and making our new business shine. After a few years we were selling in local shops as well as online. We had an opportunity to move here to Santa Fe, where my husband was born. We jumped on it!  He agreed to go to work for Whole Foods and let me work at our business full time. I have come to love all the science and creativity there is in the bath and body industry and continue to learn and grow everyday. I love teaching about it and sharing ideas with others. I had come to know Deb, from Natures Garden Candle & Soap Supplies a few years back. We hit it off right away!  Over time we both contributed inspiration and feedback on each others ideas. And recently, on one of our phone chats, she mentioned they were behind on their soap testing for fragrances. So I offered to help. Being as I had already been doing videos on YouTube and had established viewers, I decided to do some of the testing on camera, so other Soapers could actually SEE what they did. This was received so enthusiastically, we have now expanded this to video product testing, an online presence on Face Book, Q&A night and now a blog! We are very excited to be collaborating on this new adventure together. I look forward to all your positive feedback and know you will be patient with me as I adapt to this new experience and get better with my camera!  LOL
