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.
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. Previously known as Saponifier, we now enter our 23rd year. 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!
