The process of making soap:For travelers who use our world travel planner, Provo holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the The Soap Factory and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
1. Choose your mold (over 300 options)
2. Choose your essential oils (~100 options)
3. Choose your mix-ins (dozens of options, from exfoliant to moisturizing)
4. Choose your base color (natural mineral pigments)
5. Pour your soap
6. Unmold your soap when it's cool
7. Paint your soap (natural mineral pigments)
With hundreds of shapes, colors, essential oils, and mix-ins, there are literally billions of different soaps to be made. Anyone will find something they love.
You can also follow the same process, but with sugar scrub, salt scrub, all-natural lotion, bath fizzy, lip balm, or gourment chocolates (yes, real chocolate you can eat). Choose your essential oils, mix-ins, colors, and the base product, then voila! A $5 lab fee covers the essential oils, mix-ins, colors, and materials you'll use, then everything in the store is $0.05/gram.
All items are made with all-natural and organic ingredients, and include no artificial additives or preservatives.
The Soap Factory reviews
I visited the Soap Factory on a Saturday afternoon. It was pretty busy but we were helped pretty quickly. I made two different soaps and they turned out great! They have all different molds you can... more »
Very expensive for what you get. I understand that they have to charge for what they clean up, but we paid $30 for 3 of us to walk away with less than 2 handfuls of soaps. They also took quite a while to help us. It was a fun activity, but not worth the money to me.
Great place! Improvements needed. We love coming and creating here, but there are staff issues. We have gone when we were the only ones in the store and it still took us almost 2 hours because the single employee there kept disappearing into a back room and we never seemed to be able to find her when we needed her. We tried to go again today (a holiday) and one poor girl was running around like a chicken with her head cut off trying to help everyone. 20 minutes after greeting us with, "I'll be right with you," we left. She was still trying to help the rest of the crowd and still hadn't gotten back to us. We ran into 2 other parties shortly thereafter that had done the same thing. It would be really helpful if the management could provide some extra staff on busy days, and perhaps instruct their employees to stay available/accesible on days when it is less busy. Their essential oils also do not smell that great... Other brands are more more pleasant smelling (even budget brands). I am considering just bringing my own oils next time... when I can spare a few hours to make another attempt.
