The Art of Soapmaking

The Art of Soapmaking

History | Process 

The art of soapmaking dates back as far as the ancient Egyptian and Roman civilizations. By the 7th century Italy, Spain, and

France had mastered the art with secret recipes and teaching the craft from master to apprentice.
Today the process of making traditional cold-processed soaps is almost exactly the same as our ancestors made it centuries ago. At MuMe’s workshops, Emma explains how we can use ingredients easily found, such as olive oil, sunflower oil, and coconut oil to create a beautiful soap. Bringing nature and science together, using locally sourced ingredients, MuMe makes the process of soapmaking easy and fun, while preserving the old history of soapmaking.


Art Form 

Soap-making is an art form. In its early history, the craft was perfected by artisans, but now that soap is a largely commercial product that art has slipped away. Soap-making is a highly customizable and creative process, and the benefit is having control over the ingredients that you use. Creative kits and workshops from MuMe allow people to explore the art of soap-making in a safe, fun, creative, natural, and sustainable way. 


Pear's soap is an icon and the world's longest-running brand. The cold-pressed method that Pear's uses is popular around the world, and the brand made strides in modern marketing.  MuMe uses a similar method to the well-known soap but allows for endless options and room for creativity.
