I hope you are doing well! I just want to know if you perhaps know what Catherine Failor's email address is? I searched everywhere on the internet but without success. I bought Catherine Failor's book, "Making natural liquid soaps". I have made my first batch of liquid soap yesterday but I need advice on how to run the liquid soap recipes through the soap calculator. I would be so glad if you can assist.

While this book is considered "the bible" on liquid soap making, and does contain some essential information to understanding the process, it has its drawbacks.
The way it is organized is maddening. You have to flip back and forth between different sections to figure out how to neutralize your soap, or how much you should dilute it. A lot has been learned about the process since this book has come out, including the "glycerine" method, where the lye KOH is dissolved into hot glycerine instead While this book is considered "the bible" on liquid soap making, and does contain some essential information to understanding the process, it has its drawbacks.
A lot has been learned about the process since this book has come out, including the "glycerine" method, where the lye KOH is dissolved into hot glycerine instead of water. It makes the paste much more manageable to work with. Jun 01, Shannon rated it liked it.
Not sure if I'll ever bother to make liquid soap. The process seems more tedious than I'd imagined. The instructions in this book are clear with some photos to illustrate what the process should look like; however, I found all of the stock photography in the book to be distracting. I'd rather see exactly what the soap looks like rather than an 'inspiring' image of some fancy soap pump bottles or a lady washing her hair.
Sep 12, Kathryn Fanestiel rated it really liked it. I found this book to be a pretty comprehensive guide to making liquid soap. Several Amazon users had mentioned that the book was confusing in their reviews.
Fortunately I have a background in science, so the instructions were relatively familiar. I will definitely follow some other users suggestions for checking out blogs to learn different methods.

Using the potassium hydroxide or whatever sounds like a real headache, mostly because I don't want to track it down.
THe book was good for what it is, though. Aug 09, Cat rated it really liked it. Some really good recipes. Could follow how to make the liquid soaps.
Pretty complicated, but the book made it possible for a novice liquid soap maker to succeed. Jul 15, Mrsdove added it. Good book about soap making however if you are not familiar with it then some of her technical talk will lose you but good information and good recipes.
Mar 20, Frances rated it it was ok Shelves: crafts. I'm looking forward to trying to make liquid hand soap for the hubby, though we use bars for everything else An excellent resource. Failor's explanations are detailed but still accessible. She provides recipes, but also explains how to design your own.

Making Natural Liquid Soaps
By Catherine Failor. My love affair with soapmaking began more than twenty years ago when I stepped into a small bookstore in Eugene, Oregon. A slender, charming little book immediately caught my eye; the cover photo showed a woman carving designs into bars of soap. As I stared at those bars on the cover, they seemed to me more beautiful than precious jewels. I never seem to tire of making it and marveling at it. But perhaps an even bigger attraction for me is that soapmaking offers so many avenues of inquiry, discovery, and invention — a seemingly endless amount! Considering how ubiquitous soap is and what an intimate role it plays in our everyday lives, relatively little has been written about it.
