Come watch and learn about how to make soap using goat's milk, lye, and the cold-process method! Have you ever heard the word 'saponification'? Here is a chemical definition.
Saponification: The process in which a triacylglyceride is reacted with aqueous hydroxide ion to form a mixture of glycerol and fatty acid salts (soaps). Say what?!?
I will try to explain that word in simpler terms before I actually go through the process. In other words, it will happen before you eyes at this demonstration. I will also explain why the soap is actually not usable for at least 4 weeks after it is made. It has to go through another process called 'curing' during those 4 weeks.
Here is the process
summarized in pictures.
Come to my demonstration
and you will see Step B
thru Step F take place!
Here are the small animal molds that will be given out - one to each registered guest at my demo. You get to pick the animal and the scent from the supply that I have on hand.
