The definitive resource for making vegetable-based soaps from scratch, from buying supplies to cutting the final bars.


In response to the wide concern currently expressed over animal-product additives and synthetic ingredients in toiletries and cosmetics, this book focuses on making one's own nutrient-rich soaps, scented with natural oils and using only herbal and vegetable dyes. Step-by-step instructions are provided, down to some creative gift-wrapping of the end product. The author has included many recipes, from old favourites like oatmeal and honey or avocado, to her own for goat's milk, borage and a tropical shampoo bar. There are also tips for trouble-shooting, quickly assessing and correcting problems. All stages of the manufacturing process are covered, from the buying of supplies to cutting and trimming the final bars. The author is president of an American retail mail order company producing herbal products.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not just the same ol' thing. 9. Mai 2000
I really enjoy the straight forward writing style of Ms. Cavitch. She speaks to you like you're having a conversation with a good friend.
In the Introduction she gives some basic chemistry of soap lessons which are very easy for the non chemist to understand. Then she goes on to explain different types of soap, different fats and oils what when you might want to use each. All through the beginning are charming, little stories about real soap makers and their businesses. What a nice touch.
This seems to be a very well thought out book with just oodles of information on just about every aspect of making soap. She's even included a small section on blending essential oils and give some suggested blending for certain scents.
The coloring section isn't as lengthy as I think it could be, but it is a good start for the beginner, especially for those who want to start using herbs for coloring soaps.
I can't say I agree with Ms. Cavitch on her temperatures explanation. But that does seem to be more of a preference thing. She feels that vegetable soaps made over 95 degrees F are problematic, but I have never found that to be the case. Actually... I have found the opposite to be true.
Weighing your essential oils in advance as she suggests you do in Step 1, is going to give you a problem unless you tightly seal it. I learned right away that they will evaporate into the air. What you weighed out before you started stirring will be partly gone by the time you use it! She does however, later in another section, mention that you should tightly seal the container.
A picture, an actual photograph, of what 'trace' means would be nice. Would it kill these authors to say something like, "thick like pudding"?

3.0 von 5 Sternen GOOD AND NOT GOOD 19. Februar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
I'm starting a small business and I needed a book to help me with making a lot of soap in one time. The recipes usually make about 30-40 bars in one shot. If you're buying this for personal use I'D PASS. On the other hand if you're looking to sell soap go for it. Now the problem is there are NO pictures showing the final product! I like to see what i'm making and I'd like to see if mine looks the same when I'm done. They basically have little drawings if that's what you want to call them..not to helpful it that area. It's an O.K. gives you the list of things you need to make soap and that's what I basically bought it for...

2.0 von 5 Sternen Bars and bars and bars of soap 23. Januar 2000
The only problem I have with this book is the sheer quantity of soap each recipe makes. I have never made 40 bars of soap at one time and cannot imagine ever doing so. I'm not sure what I would do with 40 bars of soap. It's more fun for me to make several small batches of soap for variety. It would have been more helpful had Cavitch included information on making half batches as well.
The author uses no animal products in her soap, which may be a plus for some, but I find lard and tallow to make nice soaps for much less money. Of course, this is a matter of preference to the soap maker.
Frankly, I wish I had bought another soap making book.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Good, but........ 24. November 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I am a beginner soap maker and found this book to be extremely informative. There is a great amount of information regarding the different types of oils and additives you can use. But, being a beginnger, I found the recipes waaay to intimidating and extremely large. I almost got turned off of soap making thinking that I would need a scale to measure lye to tenths of grams! (i.e. lye weight 567 7/10 gm) Also her recipes call for you to make batches of at least 40 bars each, an amount I was not interested in making. There is a lot of good information in this book, but I think that this book is for people extremely serious about soap making.

5.0 von 5 Sternen By far the best Soapmaking Book available 19. März 1998
Von Ein Kunde
I have now been making soap for two years and this has been my bible. I have never had a recipe flop and the end results have been great. The instructions are clear and Susan Cavitch provides adequate chemical and technical information if you want to start experimenting with other oils/combinations than those listed in the recipes. This book is a must for a beginning soapmaker and a great addition to the serious soapmaker's library.

I've been making soap for fun and profit for 3 years and have found this book to be the most informative and comprehensive of any I've read--and I've read a lot! Great recipes, easy-to-follow instructions, and wonderful ideas. This is truly my soapmaker' bible--I use it constantly! This is the perfect start-up book for beginners, as well as a great resource for more experienced soapers.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A very thorough and useful book 30. Januar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
This is _the_ book to acquire if you are planning to make vegetable oil based soap. There's a lot of information packed in this book. It presents all the elements of soapmaking very systematically, and explains the simple chemistry and logic behind the recipes and techniques. It specializes on the best ways to make vegetable oil soap -- which can differ from animal fat based soap. I'm a beginner. I made my first batch last night and it is happily solidifying in the molds as I write. I would buy this book in addition to whatever other soapmaking books you feel inspired to buy, because it covers just about everything and is a really good reference. It includes a large appendix of suppliers and a reassuring table of what to do when things go wrong. My only complaint is that it doesn't have a good description of what "tracing" looks like -- tracing being the sign that your soap is ready to pour into the molds. But, none of the other books I read did either. It's subtle, and I think it's the sort of thing you learn to recognize after you've made a couple of batches. Note that each of the eight basic recipes makes 40 bars of soap, so be prepared to share with friends!! If the amount of info in this book seems a bit overwhelming, beginners might also want to consider picking up a copy of Ann Bramson's book.
