Storey Publishing

Handmade soap is made extra-special with the addition of milk! Soaps enriched with milk are creamier than those made with water, and milk’s natural oils provide skin-renewing moisture and nourishment. In Milk Soaps, expert soapmaker Anne-Marie Faiola demystifies the process with step-by-step techniques and 35 recipes for making soaps that are both beautiful and useful. She explains the keys to success in using a wide range of milk types, including cow, goat, and even camel milk, along with nut and grain milks such as almond, coconut, hemp, rice, and more. Photographs show soapmakers of all levels how to achieve a variety of distinctive color and shape effects, including funnels, swirls, layers, and insets. For beginners and experts alike, this focused guide to making milk-enriched soaps offers an opportunity to expand their soapmaking skills in new and exciting ways. 

This publication conforms to the EPUB Accessibility specification at WCAG 2.0 Level AA.

Net Galley Book Review:

I am an amateur Soap maker but I needed this book when a friend gifted me some goat milk.
There are illustrations to take you through the entire process – from mixing the soap to the point of where you unmold and cut at the end of the process. The illustrations are not only helpful, but beautifully composed. If you are an absolute beginner not the best book but if you are ready to graduate to making real soap this is a great read.
