As a result of further testing, author Susan Miller Cavitch and Storey Publishing strongly recommend that you do not try this variation. Adding honey when you are combining the sodium hydroxide and water may result in a stronger reaction with more intense heat. The mixture may bubble up quickly and come out of the pot, posing a potential hazard.

Good Manufacturing Practices for Soap and Cosmetic Handcrafters

Good Manufacturing Practices for Soap and Cosmetic Handcrafters Lowest new price: $22.75
Lowest used price: $23.70
List price: $24.95
Author: Marie Gale

Most people who make handcrafted soaps and cosmetics do so because they want better, safer or more natural products and have a personal passion for what they are doing. They are conscientious in there selection of suppliers and raw materials, creataive in their formulations, careful in their production and, in the end, proud of their finished products. They have control over every phase and aspect of the production cycle, from beginning to end, and are frequently hands-on during the entire process. Large companies, with many empolyees involved in manufacturing tens of hundreds of thousands of product units at a time don't have that same level of "hands-on" or personal passion. With increased levelks of automation and numerous people in the process comes increased possibility for mix0ups or contamination of products - hence the need for detailed and exact procedures that can be double-checked and documented throughout the manufacturing cycle. Out of that need comes the coincept of "good manufacturing practices." Establishing and then following good manufacturing practies in your business is live having and using a GPS navigator to get around town. No matter how familiar you are with the streets, it takes a lot less effort to just follow the directions. The trick, of course, is having all the necessary information in the navigator to start with. That's what GMP is all about - setting yp the navigation system for your production and manufacturing, so you can avoid the potholes and steer clear of the factors that could potentially wreck your product.

Scientific Soapmaking: The Chemistry of the Cold Process

Scientific Soapmaking: The Chemistry of the Cold Process Lowest new price: $23.20
Lowest used price: $18.50
List price: $29.95
Author: Kevin M. Dunn

Until now, there were just two kinds of books on soapmaking. Books for the commodity soap industry emphasized the economical production of soap by the ton and were written for those with a background in chemistry and chemical engineering. Books for the emerging craft industry emphasized the production of high-quality soap by the pound and were aimed at those familiar with the format of cookbooks. Makers of handcrafted soap often wish they had paid more attention in chemistry class so that the information of the commodity soap books would be accessible to them. Scientific Soapmaking answers that call by bridging the gap between the technical and craft literatures. It explains the chemistry of fats, oils, and soaps, and it teaches sophisticated analytical techniques that can be carried out using equipment and materials familiar to makers of handcrafted soap. Presented in a college textbook format, Scientific Soapmaking guides students and individual soapmakers alike to formulate questions about soap and design experiments to answer those questions scientifically.
