I’m still trying to process everything from the 2013 Soap Conference in Raleigh, North Carolina. It was an amazing trip (and EXHAUSTING!).
There were a lot of awesome classes offered. I think my favorites though were:
- Kevin Dunn’s “Superfat of Discount? Identical of Different
- Kerri Mixon’s “Chemistry of Fatty Acids & Oils”
I learned the most from those two classes and I just found them fascinating! Who’d have thought the girl who hated chemistry in high school would be absolutely enthralled with it today?? Guess it just had to be chemistry of soap to pull me in.
See science can be lots of fun!!
Other classes I really enjoyed (and got some good information out of) were:
- Kat Hackney’s “Advance Colorants”
- Marla Bosworth’s “Natural Shampoo”
Ann Evanston’s keynote address was inspiring and definitely gave me some stuff to think about and things to think about changing.
The soaps submitted to the Soaper’s Showcase were all pretty amazing this year too. I loved the packaging category. There were some inspiring soaps there! Here’s a couple pictures!
