attended a soap-making class on saturday night at prince edward,
this ginger soap is a gift from teacher linda & her brother-in-law.
i learned not only the chemistry of NaOH+H2O+oil=soap (hey the F.4 chem !), but also the calculation of INS, SAP values, which are v. important in soap making.
my "products" are now setting for 24hrs to become solidified,
& then 4-6 more weeks to maturation,
hope they can be ready as X'mas gifts !
handmade soaps are good for those who have itchy skin after using the shower gel,
it also good for the environment as they will be decomposed by CO2 in 24 hrs.
with the additions of different oil, essential oil or herbal powder,
the value & function of the handmade soup is added ! :P
