After years of extensive experiments with a huge range of soap formulas, Patrizia Garzena and Marina Tadiello have opened their soap kitchens to share the very best of their most successful achievements.
In their new book “The Natural Soapmaking Cookbook“, just released by Demetra Publishing, they have collected 77 tried and true star recipes that offer plenty of inspiration to combine richly lathering and tenderly conditioning oils with delicious essential oil blends, luxurious botanicals, gentle exfoliating agents, natural fillers, wholesome additives, to produce classical or adventurous soap symphonies.
From theory to practice, Patrizia and Marina show by examples how to enrich soap with mouth-watering delicacies, including silk, honey, milk, chocolate, fruit, vegetables, spices, beer, botanicals, mineral salts, wood resins.
The book is organised in easy-to-follow sections, covering all types of soap, from super-frothy shaving bars to super-gentle baby soaps, from delightful bath soaps to special pet soap and laundry soap. All modern paste soapmaking methods are put into practice, from CP to the many variants of HP, from DWCP to rebatched/milled soap to liquid and transparent soap.
This Cookbook is the natural complement to the Natural Soapmaking Handbook, the first volume in the Super-Naturally – Making soap… naturally series.
