Product and Soap Making FAQ's
Almost all of our body products are soy free, sulfate(SLS) free, paraben free, gluten free, and vegan friendly. Exceptions will be clearly noted on listings for your convenience. Our soaps are made using organic RSPO certified palm oil, biodegradable glitters, responsibly sourced micas, and we use almond and coconut oil in all our artisan bars, unless otherwise stated.
Do you accept wholesale orders / custom soap requests?
Golly, we sure would love to, but no, we do not. Eventually, we may offer wholesale prices for some of our products, but at this time we do not take custom requests, private labels, or create Cold Process Artisan Soap loaves. We work hard to satisfy our "Royal Court", and feel we need to put all our efforts, at this time, toward creating top-quality products for our shop customers. We will make an announcement on Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube if we begin accepting wholesale and custom orders, and it will only be on a national level.
Additionally, we reserve the right to limit order quantities.
Where can I find the "description box" you are always talking about in your videos? I would like to purchase some of the tools/ingredients you used but I have no idea where to find the link!
We are so glad you are enjoying the videos! Under each Royalty Soaps video on YouTube, you will see our logo, a little ad maybe, and then beneath that, on the left side, are the words "Show More" in light grey. Click on that, and a bunch of information will be revealed. This is called "The Description Box". Scroll down until you see the list of tools or other information that you need. Almost all of the products are linked, so all you have to do is click on what you want to purchase and it will take you to the purchasing location.
Do you teach classes? I'm new at soap making and want to learn more!
We're always glad to hear that others people are enjoying making soap! We have always supported other soap makers and encourage everyone to give it a try! There are 7 billion people out there who need to get clean!!
Though she doesn't teach classes, The Duchess has made some helpful videos that may assist you while you learn. She has Q&A videos with lots of helpful tips, a video about her packaging process, and a video called "10 things to know before making soap". Katie also shares tips from time to time in most of her videos so keep an eye out when you watch.
Can you help me with lye concentration and superfat percentages?
Below is Katie's basic recipe. It is compatible with soapcalc.net (free!) and SoapMaker3 (purchasable) and have been listed in percentages for ease of batch configuration. Learning to read recipes in this format, understanding the basics of recipe formulation and ingredient significance, and general education about the saponification process is not only intrinsically valuable to making great soap but also helps keep you and your soap users safe! If you're having a hard time calculating your batch size based on the numbers below, we suggest studying the multiple, free soap making articles online about creating recipes, oil properties, etc. before taking the super fun plunge into the soap making pool!
I've lost my code for the videos with Nurture! Can you help?
We're sorry for any confusion or inconvenience you have experienced! Nurture soaps no longer carries our piping set but will continue to grant access to the videos that came with your purchase. Please contact their customer service and they will be happy to help you retrieve your code.
Would you please review my soaps/products if I send you a sample?
We're so glad you are having fun soap making and are trying new creations! We'd love to see what you've made, and you are welcome to send us a sample, if you'd like, to the PO Box address listed in our contact section on YouTube. Katie isn't currently doing review videos for other soapmakers, but she is always honored to receive the beautiful soaps others have made and occasionally features gifts on Instagram.
