I just found this list while searching online for info.
I don't know anything about making soap but I live in a small village in Western Turkey (i'm an american) and the ladies here all make soap from Olive Oil. They are so poor here, it's amazing how they survive. I'm trying to help them develop some home industry that will earn them some money. This is a tourist area and I thought if we could make the soap (which is normally just cut into irregular blocks) into some attractive shapes (for example, the wooden horse from the story of 'helen of troy' and the columns from the temple of Athena) i'm sure it would be marketable.
is there anyone on this list that can offer me some help? please contact me via my email address directly. it's often hard to get into the browser.
oh, the olive oil soap is boiled, so once i figure out how to MAKE the molds, this has to be a consideration. how can i make my own molds? anyone have any suggestions? thanks,
