How to Make Soap Page

this is me

I am currently developing this page, to inform the world how to make the perfect bar of soap. I started making soap when I was a high fashion model, traveling the world as a "Ford" model. I became tired of the industry lying to the public. I never used all those expensive skin care products that I advertised on the cover of magazines. The most important part of "skin care" and obtaining a perfect complextion, is plain old fashioned soap and water. Did you know the industry removes all the natural glyceryn in soap, and adds chemicals to mimic the softening effects, and then turns around and puts that same glyceryn into creams and lotions, so you can purchase the same product twice. WHAT A RIP OFF !!! I encourage you to visit my link to my Soap site, untill this page is finished.

Here are some links to some of my favorite sites, that have to do with the history of soap. I feel its important for you to learn the history on a craft before you get into building a craft. By knowing how soap was created, and the history of it, you will have a better feel of how to formulate your own recipies.

OK, now that you have studied "the complete history of soap" I will now link you to some of the most comprehensive soap sites out there, for you to study, and experiment in soap making. Please follow all the safety instructions on these sites. Soap is made daily without mishap, but if you are not carefull in its process, you can end up with some pretty serious burns. I usually cure my soap for a minumum of 2 months. Some soap makers only cure theirs for 1 month, but I feel the ph has not dropped enough in that time, and the bars don't last as long. So have fun, read up on these links, and most important of them all HAPPY SOAPING!!
