Did you know that you can make soap with Christine during these times of social distancing?! If you are not a part of her Life of a Soapmaker group on Facebook, you need to be, because Thursday is the next live video!
Back in January Christine did her very first soapmaking experience where she let viewers watching help choose the ingredients! They chose the oils, the scent, and even the colors. The result was the new Llama From Scratch Soap that was released last month and has been a huge hit! It is not only super fun, but it is also PACKED with powerful ingredients for healthy skin. Watch the replay HERE.
Customers loved it so much that she came back on live in March. She wanted to make a coconut-free soap with aloe and thought it would be fun to have some input. Those who watched live were able to give her other ideas and ingredients that they also wanted to see in the soap. Although this pear champagne goodness looked and smelled pretty and had some amazing ingredients, there are some tweaks that need to be made. HERE is the replay.
Part of creating new soap (especially live!) means that some are going to turn out, some will need changes, and some may never make the cut.
Last month Christine held a third live soapmaking session (watch the replay HERE). With all the hype surrounding Tiger King on Netflix, Christine thought it might be fun to create a tiger soap! The audience chose four types of oils and butters, so this is going to be a very rich soap if it turns out. It also has natural brownish-orange color from annatto seeds and turmeric, as well as a brighter orange from mica and a little charcoal for black. Stay tuned to see if that one will release or need some tweaking.
Last week we made a Lemon Poppyseed From Scratch Soap together and again had so much fun! There are a lot of customers hoping this yummy soap (don’t eat it!) turns out. Watch THIS video replay, and you will understand why! During that Facebook live session, we came up with the idea to do a chai latte soap while people were voting for ingredients, and are making it together this week!
If you want to give your input, join Christine LIVE in her Life of a Soapmaker group Thursday, May 7 around 11 a.m. We hope to “see” you there!
