Preserving the timeless craft of soap making, artisan soap maker Robert McDaniel provides instruction & guidance to all levels of soap makers. Using natural ingredients, readers will experience the gratification of making all kinds of handmade soaps, including liquid soaps, cold & hot process soaps, melt-&-pour soaps & re-batched soaps.
A chemist and teacher, Dr. Robert McDaniel is the holder of 14 U.S. patents and currently writes for The Saponifier e-magazine (a bimonthly publication for the soap- and candle-making industry). Katherine McDaniel is co-manager of their home-based company, Dr. Bob's Herbal Soap. The McDaniels' first soap making book, Essentially Soap, sold over 33,000 copies worldwide.
If you want a compendium with LOTS of information compacted together in easy to find sections: this is NOT your book.
If you want a light introduction into the ins and outs of soap making and you want some pictures to help explain it to you (and a dvd that comes in the back), then this is your book. It covers safety well.
The paper is thick and waxy, which makes me think they intended it to be looked at with damp/oily hands. There are recipes in the back.
The section on fragrance oils was by far the most informative for me.
However, the author seems to want to make the thing look complicated and dangerous to maybe discourage us a little? It is a pity, because it could be a fun set of book and DVD, but once reading it and watching the DVD, we almost feel like if we were disturbing somehow.
In this book, the author uses a lot of chemistry words, maybe to confuse us as well? I am not sure...
Anyway, it is still interesting and we still learn something.
I precise I am not an expert in soap, but I am learning and this book seems okay to me.
Esthetically, this book is not the top, but the basics are however there and not so badly explained in spite of the fact it is not generously made.
Maybe I have this impression because this author is a true professional of soap and it is difficult for him to imagine what it is, to be a beginner?
He obviously knows what he is talking about, we can, at least, trust him on that.
The DVD is definitely too too short. At the end, we are still waiting for more...
I still will recommend this book/DVD in spite of the not fun part.
