What is the cost of the experience?

The cost is $100/person and Danielle accepts bubbles of 2-4 people to book together. 

Will we be using lye? Is it dangerous? Is using lye soap safe?

We will be making cold processed soap which does include using Lye.  
 
We supply all safety equipment as well as closely monitored use of lye.  It is required that all participants wear closed-toed shoes as well as long pants and long-sleeved shirts to ensure safety.
 

A well-formulated recipe ensures that all the lye reacts with fatty acids and therefore there is no lye in the finished product. Just Soap.

Will I know how to make soap on my own after this experience?

After this experience you will have the basic knowledge of how soap is made from formulating a recipe to choosing scent and colour.  The experience is a blend of technical information as well as a creative experience.
