  1. Hi Angela
    I’ve been interested in making safe and quality organic products like shampoos and soaps. I was looking at developing these home made ideas and going into the commercial market with eco packaging.
    What would you suggest on this idea..

    • Hi Zia,

      That sounds like an amazing idea! I’m sure you will find it very rewarding and satisfying work. My suggestion would be to pay close attention to regulations placed upon the cosmetics industry by your government. Don’t let these strict rules catch you out! This isn’t exactly my area of expertise, so I would encourage you to do your own research. But good luck with your business! Let me know how you get on.

    • Hi Gold,

      The best thing about soapmaking is that you can totally make it your own! While I haven’t tried adding dead sea salts to my own soaps before, all of your suggested additives can impart gorgeous color, fragrance, and goodness to any soap! Some lovely suggestions, thanks!
