Paw Paw, Mi, United States
Trained as a chemist and microbiologist. Good manufacturing practices.
I can make soaps or lotions "To Order".
Soap making from "scratch". Sometimes I use glycerin bases, and experiment with additives. Lotions and creams are getting to be a passion.
Skills and Techniques
Safety and a sound mind are important when making soaps and lotions. As we work with lye(Sodium hydroxide-a potent base), we must use caution. No hurrying allowed. When we work with lotions and creams, we must be mindful of safety here, also, not so much for the maker as for the recipients. Bacteria and molds cause great harm. We would NEVER want to be the cause of this, so, the best preservatives and good manufacturing processes are followed.
