Castile soap (or soap made purely from olive oil) is also known as 'the newborn soap', because it's mild enough to use on newborn skin. Learn how to make this soap that has been celebrated for centuries, and once you use it, you may find that no other soap will do.

We've developed a teaching method that is fun, easy to understand, and covers what you need to know to get started with bar soap making. Since September 2018, we've started over 500 people on their soap making journey, with many of them even starting their own successful soap businesses.

In this online course, you will:

  • learn how to make Castile bar soap using the cold process method 
  • make one (1) batch of scented Castile soap with oatmeal (~650g) using pure olive oil as base
  • learn how to make your own soap formulations in the future, using different oils and ingredients
  • learn how to calculate ingredient amounts based on your mold size
  • learn proper lye handling
  • learn basic soap design techniques (color, swirl and layer)
  • get supplier information for additional soap materials
  • get a PDF of our complete info booklet

Once you have completed this course, you may request FREE access to our generous online community of soapers, where you can ask questions, troubleshoot, search through previous discussions, or share silly soap memes anytime!

This is a limited duration access course. This means you will have unlimited access to this course (stop, rewind, play, fast-forward for as many times as you need) for a full 30 days from the day you view the first video in the course (not from the day you purchase it). Access ends after 30 days, but you may purchase extensions in one week increments. 

Our soap making kit is available as an add-on, for you to go hands-on and put the lessons to use as you watch our videos, or afterwards. This kit is complete, and comes with all the tools and materials needed to make a batch of soap. 

If you will need a kit, it will be delivered within a week within Metro Manila, and may take two to three weeks for deliveries to provincial addresses. Again, it is important to keep in mind that your 30-day access begins from the first time you view the first video in the courseWe ship our kits ONLY to addresses in the Philippines.
