"I really feel the intensive course should be compulsory for anyone setting up a soap making business. So much of what we learnt you can't find anywhere on the web so the practical knowledge has saved me so much time and experimentation"

- Maria Benjamin

""It was insightful and taught me alot. I got to learn how to kick start my business and have different options of what to make. The practical and knowledge side of the course was very eye opening and the course instructors were engaging and friendly."

- Vanieta Martina

"A year ago I left the UK to live in Mexico, with the intention of creating a business making and selling soap and spa products. Here I am, a year later, and the business is growing. I’m so pleased that I was able to get a solid foundation in creating a wide range of products. I’m a bit of a perfectionist, and also have high standards in the sorts of products I offer my customers. Sarah and Shawn provide an in-depth training in everything. They not only tell you what ingredients and techniques to use, they also explain why. The comprehensive notes I received after every course now constitutes my library of recipes and techniques, and I use them to produce variations of those recipes as well as in developing new products. The courses are very well run (I’ve run courses myself in other things, and know how demanding running training courses can be), and are relaxed and very friendly. I particularly liked the fact that students can ask questions as they learn, there is no pressure (it’s always fun). Even a year later I can contact Sarah or Shawn for help, and they provide it with care and attention. Did that this week. To anyone wondering if these courses are any good, and value for money, I’d say “don’t hesitate”. Soap School is a gem and I’m proud to say (when tourists ask me how I learned what I do), that I studied at Soap School. Thanks Sarah and Shawn. "

Hi there!

I'm Sarah. I started my career as a wax artist and avid crafter. I have a true passion for soap making and an extensive knowledge of the soap making and candle making industries. I founded Soap School in the 1990's and was the former owner of one of the largest Soap Making Supplies companies in Europe. I have been an international trainer of soaps, cosmetics and candle making for over 25 years, helping people from all over the world to make their own soaps as well as helping them to develop and launch their own businesses in the cosmetic market. I cannot wait to work with you too, and see how you develop your own brand.
