    Book details

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.

    Worth every penny! Love it!

    Good book to understand and feel soap making and learn some basic lab techniques, to follow the book properly you will need some equipment though... not much but you will have spend some money y a proper scale, thermometer, and other measuring tools... I am in that process right now...

    Very helpful book for both novice and advanced soapmakers. Very good work starting with familiarising the reader with the equipment and chemistry essential knowledge and then getting deeper and deeper into the secrets of soapmaking.

    This is a must. I recommend it to every soapmaker who takes it seriously. :) Based on sience but not have to be a rocket sientist to understand.

    This book is mainly directed to chemistry students which I am not. Only the last few pages is of some interest to me. You can learn the same on the soaping forums. Too bad I spent money on this book.
