What is Handmade Soap?

Handmade soap is actually lye soap. Modern lye soap is not harsh like your great-grandmother's. The best handmade soap is mild, creamy, lathery, and nourishing to the skin. Good soapmakers use their math skills, carefully weigh their ingredients, use safety gear, and keep "lab notes." Correct calculations of lye and soap oils -- coconut, palm and olive oils being the most common -- are essential to turning out wonderfully mild handmade soap.
