Why is it called Live Soap School?
Our program started through Live Streaming. Zakia taught women and men from around the world how to make soap LIVE on Twitter and Facebook live streams. This method of training delivery was very effective for students so we kept it in our name and our program.
Is this course all theory?
Absolutely NOT! You will be making your own soap within the first few modules of the program. Our program begins with basic foundation, equipment and ingredients and then we move right into making soap.
What if I'm not good at math or science, will I be able to make soap?
While soapmaking is a bit of chemistry we take the mystery out of it. In fact there are several online resources that will take care of all of the chemistry for you. WE teach you how to use these tools in a very easy way.
Will you provide recipes?
We provide recipes for each product we teach however we also believe that every student must know how to formulate their own recipes, so formulation is taught with each bath product so you can make each one your own.
Are supplies and ingredients included in the cost of registration?
Soaping supplies and ingredients are not included in the cost of registration. After successfully registering you will receive your program login information along with a core list of supplies and ingredients you will need to have by the fourth lesson. You may be surprised to find that you have most of what you need already in your kitchen. In case you do not we will also provide you with a list of reputable suppliers.
I don't live in the US, can I still take the course?
Yes you can! Our program is completely online, as long as you have an internet connection you can enroll in live soap school. All of your course materials will be available in your personalized training portal and are available at anytime that is convenient for you day or night.
I already know how to make soap should I take this course?
This course is designed for beginners. It is especially tailored to those who are interested in starting a new hobby to create custom bath and body products for friends, family, neighbors and co-workers or considering starting a new business and need a foundation in Soap Making and Recipe Formulation.
