Great kit, however after following the directions from the included 2 pound mold very first batch seized up as soon as I added the included F.O. I guess I misunderstood. I quot from the recipe "Melt your oils so they are around 120 to 140 degrees. If your lye water is cooled below 140 degrees, add your lye water to your oils. I added my lye water when both the lye water and oils temp was around 130 degrees. I did a bit of further research and found that soaping at cooler temps helps(85-110). Live and learn. I managed to get the soap in the mold and can hardly wait to start the next batch! Overall great product and can highly recommend!

So 5 weeks ago I made my first cold process soap ever using this kit. I watched all the videos, read the directions before and during. I felt very comfortable that I was well prepared for this. I had alot of fun making the soaps. I precisely measured everything using my digital scale. I was able to make 2 batches from the oils in the kit with some leftovers. The soap smelled amazing while it was curing! When I used my first bar, it had a great silky texture and lots of bubbles. So much nicer then store bought soap. It rinsed great, smells pretty good and as I dried my hands felt super moisturized. Until about 10 mins later. Skin is tight and dried out. Not very happy with that. I know I followed the directions. I thought cold processing created glycerin that helped moisturize the skin??

Hi Tammy! I'm so glad your first cold process experience went so well with our Beginner's Cold Process Kit! Though, I'm sorry you weren't happy with the results after using your soap. The recipe include with this kit is basic 30, 30, 30, 10 recipe with 30% Coconut Oil, an oil with high cleansing abilities. High cleansing oils do an incredible job cleaning but in doing so, may also wash away some of your skin's naturally moisturizing oils. It's easy to solve; cut back on the Coconut and Palm Oil and increase skin loving oils like Olive Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Hempseed Oil, Rice Bran Oil or your favorite butters. Finally, you can increase your superfat from the normal 5% to a bit higher, like 7%.

You made it so easy!
I've been wanting to try CP soap for a few years now. I've read books and watched videos (especially the beginner tutorials on Soap Queen) and I was worried that it was going to be a really complicated process. I ordered this kit, and just finished making my first batch. It was really easy, and I can't wait to see the results.

This is a great starter kit, I am just wondering why I didn't get the e-book? My batches turned out amazing. I am wondering can you double this recipe for the 10" mold. How do you know how much oils you need for that mold. I would love to use this recipe in that mold. Anyone who wants to start making soap, this is an awesome kit.

Hi Debbie! I'm so glad you though our Beginner's Cold Process Kit was a great start and your soap turned out amazing! The E-Book would have been added to your digital goods under your account with us. If you double the recipe it will be a about a pound too large for the 10" Silicone Loaf Mold. The best way to resize a batch of soap is to run the recipe as is through our Handy Dandy Lye Calculator then Resize the batch by changing the oil weight. I will email you personally to help troubleshoot!

So far, so good!
I made my first CP batch with this kit today and it was so easy! I'm super excited to see how it turns out! The only complaint I have with this kit is the fragrance bottle doesn't pour out well and it's sticky. I got it on my scale and I'm not sure how to clean it off. Any advice on this?

Hi Jessica! I'm so glad you like the kit! If you have any spills, 99% isopropyl alcohol is great for cleaning. Just spritz a little on your scale and wipe it off with a rag. I'll be emailing you personally to talk more!
