What is soap actually and how is it made?
Soap is made of alkaline salts of fatty acids which are gotten by the process of saponification, aka by combining natural oils and fats with a strong base solution. When it comes to making hard bar soaps sodium hydroxide is most commonly used as a base, and for liquid soaps potassium hydroxide is used. Soap is used for cleaning because it has a specific structure of molecules which consist of a hydrophilic part which can dissolve in water and a hydrophobic part which decomposes non-polar fat molecules, aka dirtiness.
You can use the cold process, the hot process or the French milling process. You will learn, in detail, the advantages and the downsides of each process individually.
Why should you use natural homemade soap?
As we all know soap is necessary and useful. The use of soap has been seen throughout the world through history. The Babylonians, Egyptians, Phoenicians, Gauls, all used soap among others. Even though there is a long history of using soap, how many people actually know enough about soap?
Take an industrial soap and read the ingredients. Do you speak the Latin language? You will need it. Soap ingredients, if you are even able to read them due to the fine print, are mostly written in Latin. Most of the industrial soaps can not be called soap, because they are actually chemical compounds of detergents to which many artificial additives are added. Detergent is good for dishes and laundry, but not for our skin. Aside from additives you can also find phosphates which are banned in some developed countries.
How do regular people who are not chemists choose their soap? They look at the name, the brand, they sniff the artificial scent, look at the price and if it all fits they buy it.
What happens then? You take a bath with the industrial soap and you feel itchiness or a tingle because it is not good for your skin. You are familiar with the peeling of dry skin…
Then you put some hydrating skin cream which is even sold with the soap which dried your skin in the first place! Can you see the pattern?
Handmade soaps are filled with vegetable oils which will remain on your skin after your bath. In that way you can keep the natural moisture of your skin. With the long term use of homemade soap your skin will regenerate and protect itself and with the help of the BAH workshop you will learn how to make it yourself.
Equipment and materials needed to make homemade soap
Even though soap making is easy to learn, in the process of making it you are handling dangerous materials (sodium, potassium hydroxide) and because of that protective gear and controlled environment is necessary. In order to make soaps in our workshops we need the following materials and equipment:
- Protective gear
- A digital scale
- A hand blender
- A thermometer
- Essential oils
- Natural soap coloring
- Various herbal oils (olive, coconut, palm, castor…)
- Animal fat
Make the first step towards natural skin care and your body will be thankful. Beo Art House is expecting you – welcome!

SOAPS AND COSMETOLOGY
I’ve always been a big spender of cosmetic products, but the thought of how harmful all of those products we use on our skin are, has frightened me. When I’ve discovered natural cosmetics, I knew that that was my true calling and with further specializing in Paris and in Belgrade I’ve achieved my goals – I’ve mastered the knowledge and the techniques needed for creating all of the products necessary for maintaining the beauty and health of the skin.
