Hot Process -- The Forgotten Soap

Hot process soaps are not featured nearly as much as cold processed soaps. They are the underdogs I suppose...the modest soaps that need a bit of exposure. Here are some beautiful soaps that should be exposed to the rest of the world. Here, world. Enjoy these beauts!

Nag Champa Spiral Funkiness (love the swirled circles)

BareBummBath features hot process soaps that are quite lovely.

Stella Marie Soap Company - I have had the pleasure of using Kim's soaps before. Her style, soap and heart is beyond fantastic. We love you, Kim!

Youth Hot Process Soap Ala Anhoki

I choose to make cold process soap more often than hot process soap because I have more control with the outcome... designing it. I am very impressed with these soapmakers, I have to say. When I make hot process batches, they come out fine, but the tops looks vomitous. You know what I'm talking about if you've ever made hot process soap.

I chose these soaps to feature because they are works of art. Thank you.

They are hot!

I used to only do hot process soaps. No I've moved completely in the opposite direction I only hot process volatile fragrances. I have to go make some soap now. This post has given me the urge!

Thanks so much for featuring Maylees Garden with all the other incredible soaps! I agree hot process seems to be an underdog but you can get so creative with it, and its such a quick way to process the soap I dont know why everyone dont do it!

I am proud to be featured with such talent! Thanks again!

There's something very calming and zen about the "peace" soap, even without the added influence of the name. :)

I use Maylee's garden soaps and love them. Libby does a great job with her fragrance and always has the perfect scent hor me.

I agree that it seems easier to control the outcome of a cold processed soap. I usually end up with holes & messes when I hot process. :)
