Your Champion Soapmaker's Library:
Recommended soapmaking books

When we started making soap (which was around the end of last Millennium), the available literature on the subject was scarce, often limited in scope, and sadly not very reliable. All [handmade] soap books written before 2004, with the only exception of Catherine Failor's monographs, came from writers who had researched the subject to the extent of their own expertise... which was close to null.

The Soap Naturally book was in fact the very first book on handmade soapmaking to come from "real" soapers, who had been able to verify their theories and experiments both directly, and through collecting other soapers' experiences.

To this day, there are only two books that can be compared to the original Soap Naturally in terms of reliability, competence and first-hand soap expertise. Those books are described in detail on the Natural Soapmaking Books page.

So here are our recommendations for your own Master Soaper library.
