Hello from sunny California where Marie Gale (President of The Handcrafted Soap Makers Guild) and I are judging the *best* Goatsmilk Soap in America. That’s Marie Gale on the left with just a fraction of the soap that we’ll be evaluating for color, creativity, hardness, lather and more. We evaluated about 60 bars this morning just on subjective things like fragrance and looks.
This afternoon, we’ll be starting to lather up with all of them after we tongue test every single one of the for excess lye. That’s sure to be a hoot! Expect a full write up this evening or tomorrow morning of our fun and soapy day.
On Thursday, I’ll be teaching Cold Process I & II, Lotion Making 101 and Marketing for Small Business. If you’re near Rohnert Park, California and would like to come, check out the American Dairy Goats Association Website for more information.
We’re off to go lick 80 bars of soap now … yummy!
