What is Soakster?

Soakster is a bath bomb making, soap crafting and all round fragrance loving company. I started Soakster in 2016 to make bath bomb and soap at a price which represented amazing value. After an amazing reaction to our products at local fairs, I realised the most asked question at these events was “how do you make bath bombs”.

Having explained this a few hundred times, Soakster branched out into kids birthday parties. These turned out to be so popular that we ended up turning down more than we could host. My involvement with the Duke of Edinburgh award, through my own kids participation, evolved into a DofE course.

We have now seen hundreds of kids through the Bronze or Silver DofE skills section of their award and offer 2 courses. Our approach works because the courses are flexible, offer amazing value for money and are specifically written with young people in mind.

We now offer a bath bomb and soap course, as well as a bubble bar course. We love seeing what our students make and will never lose our passion to help them achieve their potential. Our main website contains loads of DofE information, so head there to find out more.

We don’t just teach young people! We are passionate about people learning to make their own products and offer several recipe and instruction books too.

We are also a member of the Guild of Craft Soap & Toiletry Makers. The Guild is only open to soap makers who can demonstrate their products have been safety assessed and approved for sale by a chartered chemist in line with the Cosmetics Regulations. It is a badge of professional recognition, which we wear with pride!
