Hey all you soapers out there!! I want to try hot process soaping - specifically cooking it in the oven. DH seems to think it will add loads of time and energy to the cold process method and therefore increasing the price per bar to make (yes he is that anal). Just wondering if anyone else does hot process and if it does add more cost to make it that way.

Thanks in advance!!!!

well, it does take more time in the process--so it ups the labor cost, obviously.

I'm not very exoerienced with this as I love CP soap too much to want any other kind, but instead of mixing and pouring into the mold, you are cooking the soap for a period of time--most of the saponification should be completed by the time it's done, and a lot of the water is evaporated, too.

advantages--supposedly a shorter curing period, and you need much less fragrance.

disadvantage--more time to make, a difference in texture--it tends to be rougher looking--you may like this look better, also you really have to work to get it in the molds.

as far as being able to charge more--I don't think so--sorry to disappoint your hub!
