I recieve high volumes of emails asking product related and technical/formulation questions. Please take your time to read through some of the most common answers below prior to sending an email for technical assistance.
Many formulations are calculated by percentage because it depends the method you are measuring. If a formulation calls for 1% of a particular ingredient of the volume of your product your calculation will be EXAMPLE:
You are making 1000g of conditioner and you want to add 1% of a specific ingredient,
On your calculator enter 1000 x 1% = 10
So you will add either 10ml or 10g depending on how you are
Example B – Using several ingredients in formulations with percentages to balance been water.
Ingredient A 16.7 %
Ingredient B – 10%
Ingredient C -3%
If you want to make 1kg of a specific product on your calculator add all the ingredient percentages together. In this case
you have 3 ingredients totaling to 29.7 (16.7 +10+3)
Deduct 29.7 % from 100%
The amount of water you will be using is 100 -29.7 = 70.3%
Now that you know the amount of water you will be using.. you are going to measure out your ingredients.
e.g. Ingredient A is 16.7%
Remember in our example we are making 1000g of a specific product
On your calculator you will enter 100 x 16.7 = 167.00
The amount converted from % to grams is 167g
The total amount of water is 703g
Adding preservatives: The guideline is calculated in % and works in minimums and maximums. So if you need a very high amount of preservative you will base your calculation on the maximum percentage.
Fragrance Oil ingredients: Fragrance oils are trademarked and we cannot provide the ingredient listing.
They are partially made from essential oils and glycols.
Is there a difference between natural and organic. Yes. Just because something is not organic does not make it un-natural.
I do not give advice for products/formulations intended for animal use. If I have not tested something on myself then I cannot answer your question.
Labelling your products: List all inci names. Standard protocol of warnings should apply e.g. if you should experience some irritation, discontinue use immediately.
Bubble Go spray should not be inhaled..it is alcohol based.
Sample Certificates of Analysis and MSDS are only issued on request. If it is already on our website then it wont be resent.

Q. I would like to start my own business from home but I dont know where to begin.
When starting your own business on a small budget try not to spend too much on Expensive big equipment, Especially if you have not yet done thorough research.
Basic equipment you will need to start your own little business:
Stainless steel Pot
Measuring jugs and spoons
To start making your own liquid soap it is recommended that you use our Liquid soap kit. It is easy and versatile.
Lotions and creams, You can either use our kits, or make your own by using emusifying wax and a recipe from our site.
Soaps – If you have not yet made your own soap from scratch before then you can start by using our melt and pour soap and if you feel you want to challenge making your own cold process soap, then follow one of our recipes.
Shampoos and conditioners, you will need a lot of ingredients to start making your own and the capital outlay for all the ingredients is high. We manufacture these products in bulk so you can just add your own “magic active ingredients”.
Start you own business off on a small scale, dont use too many different fragrances. This confuses consumers and makes decision making difficult, also this can make your labelling very expensive if you have a massive variety. Start off with a simple neat range.
Q. Please help, the post office is on strike and I need to place an urgent order.
A. Our couriers are efficient and sometimes more cost effective than the post office. Send your order and we will get back to you with alternative solutions.
Q. How do I know what size the soap mould will make?
A. When you click on the image of the particular mould you are interested in, a new window will open will the full description of the cavity size.
Q. Does Fun with Soap have a physical shop that I can visit and purchase directly from?
A. Yes, we are a full e-commerce enterprise so we recommend that you visit after 12 between Mondays and Thursdays as the mornings are very busy while we dispatch the online orders so to avoid waiting to be served, rather pop in after 12.
Q. How do I know that you will send my order out once I have paid you?
A. If you have placed your order using our online shopping cart, paid for your order using your reference number as per the invoice your recieved. You will get your order. If you dont then please contact me directly.
Q. My Cold process soap seized when I added fragrance. Why?
A. There are a number of reasons, the fragrance might not be suitable..some fragrances e.g. citrus types can do this. Stick with the warmer tones of fragrances …vanilla, magnolia, Lavender essential oil, are some that I have not experienced problems with.
Many problems with seizing soap when adding fragrances… trace is not right, you might have over traced the soap (over blended), incorrect measurements., incorrect temperatures.If you are a beginner..dont add fragrances. Get the knack of the basics and then start adding different textures and fragrances.
Q. Are Plastic moulds suitable for melting glycerine soap?
A. They work okay if the soap is not too hot dont last very long. For melt and pour soap I recommend silicone moulds. Plastic moulds last longer when using them for cold process soap.
Q. Is your melt and pour soap, glycerine soap.
Incase you missed the answer to this question…how do I melt, melt and pour soap?
You can melt it either in the microwave, in a microwave suitable container. On Low heat.
You can melt it in a pot over the stove on low heat. In a stainless pot, ceramic or glass. Dont use aluminium
Once it has melted into liquid form, then add fragrance, colouring, and other ingredients you wish to add.
Pour into moulds. Optional spray bubble go spray onto the soap.
All to cool/set. Demould.

|Questions and AnswersQ. What are the labelling requirements needed when making my own products?A. In general you need to list all the inci names for ingredients used in products example if you are using a preservative like Kemaben you must not use the name of the product instead your must use the word methylparaben which is the inci / chemical name for the product.If you have used any essential oils, example Lavender, a warning should be visible “not to be used if you are pregnant” So it is important that you have done thorough and sufficient research on each ingredient you are using.You may not make ficticious claims for your product example: will instantly remove wrinkles!Q. What is the difference between cream, lotion and balmA. Lotion is runny in consistency easily applied for larger areas of the body, usually as a hand and body lotion, suntan lotion. Contains More water than balms and creams.Balms – Usually a product that does not contain much water in the solution if not any at all. Very thick and opaque with high usage of butters, wax and generally used for heel and elbow balm which covers a small area of the body.Cream – Thicker than Lotion, when you dip your finger into the cream it should not drip off, less water is used than making lotions.Q. Can I use Mica’s In cold process soap making?
A. Yes, however first test the colour to the soap by making a small batch the colours can change..e.g from pink to purple depending on the type of oils you used to make the soap from. My personal opinion though…keep it as natural as possible. The end user of the cold process soap is buying the cold process soap for its natural ingredients. So try keep it as natural as possible. There are beautiful natural ingredients in the form of herbs that will do the job really well. e.g. paprika, mustard seed and chai tea. Visit a spice shop for some really nice ideas. Why Does the aroma vanish from my cold processed soap after a while?Some fragrances, mainly the citrus ones do tend to fade over a period of time. Suggestion: Mix some of your fragranc oil with a little polysorbate 20 prior to adding into the soap.Q Does fun with soap supply yellow beeswax beads?A.
