Comments: An excellent book on producing liquid soaps and shampoos. I just made the soap, and the recipe was accurate. The author explains why to do a process, and it makes the whole production seem logical.

Comments: Overall, this book is very nice. It has lots of full-colored pictures, however, the liquid soap making methods in this book are a little complicated. I think it could be easier than these methods. Also, batches of the recipes are so large so that I had to change the amounts of oils for my batches.

Comments: This is the only book I have on liquid soapmaking. I found it to be full of information, though somewhat scattered. I had to flip back and forth between pages constantly. While the process is time consuming,I did have great success with the recipes, though, and would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in liquid soapmaking.

Comments: I thought this book was okay. The idea of following a recipe though and still hoping that it turns out, really doesn't make you want to rush out and attempt to make liquid soap. Maybe someone else will find this one more helpful than I did.
