Discover the Best Soap Making Classes in Houston

Do you love the artful baskets of handmade soap at markets and boutiques? There is magic in the chemical reaction that produces soap, but it’s simple enough for anyone to make at home. Soap is a straightforward combination of oils or fats with an alkali, such as sodium hydroxide, that results in a chemical reaction called saponification. The result is a luxurious cleansing product, whether it’s a simple unadorned bar or a market-ready work of art.

Soap is named after an ancient Roman legend about Mount Sapo. According to the story, rain washing down the mountain would mix with animal fat and ashes to produce a clay mixture that made cleaning easier. An ancient Babylonian clay tablet described using fats and ashes for cleaning as early as 2800 BCE. A 1500 BCE Egyptian medical document called the Ebers papyrus describes combining animal and vegetable oils with alkaline salts to form a soap, which was used for treating skin diseases and washing.

Soap attaches to particles that don’t dissolve in water, like fats, so they rinse away. When you wash your hands with soap it removes the pathogens that are carried in grease and dirt. Dirty, greasy dishes that feel oily after a rinse in water are squeaky clean after a soapy wash. Soap is widely available in stores, but enthusiasts still love to hand-craft unique bars from luxurious natural ingredients in their kitchens and workshops.

Why You Should Learn Soap Making in Houston

Many people love to make and use handmade soap. Soap made by hand is produced in small batches using natural, skin-loving products, unlike commercial products which may contain synthetic ingredients and harsh chemicals. When you create handmade soap you have full control over the formula – select skin-nourishing oils and butters, choose your favorite scent, and express your creativity with colors and textures. Mold your soap into unique shapes or make rustic bars that tell the world they are one of a kind. 

Houston is the fourth largest city in the U.S. with a population of over two million people and is known for its diversity and cultural mix.
