We celebrate the creative soap making process and are the No. 1 source for Soapmaking enthusiasts.
Saponifier Magazine was founded in 1998 by Kathy Tarbox. The name was changed in 2016 to Making Soap, Cosmetics & Candles.
MAKING SOAP Magazine published its first issue July 1998. We are now in our 24th year and have been read by tens of thousands of soapmakers & candlemakers from all over the world. We are not only excited about our growth, but by the increase in popularity soap and candle making as a craft has seen since we have begun. Our success belongs to the support of our advertisers, readers, and brilliant contributors!
Filled with formulating, small scale production, product packaging, herb knowledge, techniques, ingredients, interviews and reviews, Making Soap is a bi-monthly magazine that celebrates the ever increasing interest of making handmade soap, cosmetics and candles.
We publish six times a year—in Jan, Mar, May, July, Sept, Nov. We are read through a variety of traditional and non-traditional channels to readers as passionate about our subjects as we are.
We are an independent magazine, not part of a publishing empire. Tell your friends!
