Hot Process Soap Making

In hot process soap making heat is used to give saponification a boost. Saponification is the chemical reaction that forms soap from the combination of oils/fat and lye. With the necessary ingredients added to a container, heat is provided to the mixture. The mixture is stirred until the soap begins to form.

The hot process of soap making is actually the method that was used in the early days of soap creation. According to Wikipedia, “The main benefit of hot processing is that the exact concentration of the lye solution does not need to be known to perform the process successfully.”
