Science 4 You - Soap Factory - Review!!

Today I am reviewing another fantastic kit from the wonderful people at Science 4 You.

This time we had some fun with Soap Factory....This kit has everything you need to make your own soap....

 
- Protective goggles, Gloves, Pink food colouring, Yellow food colouring, Blue food colouring, Pipettes, Wooden spatulas, Plastic molds for soap, Glitter, Test tubes with lids, Soap base, Tangerine scent, Apple scent, Satin ribbons and Plastic film....

Also included is a 36 page coloured book providing detailed instructions and scientific information....The difference between a substance and a mixture, what are the physical states of matter, what is the origin of soaps and how to produce fantastic scented soaps.....A very interesting book indeed....I learned a lot of things.

Both my girls made their own scented, glittery soap......It was so easy to make and a lot of fun.



 The only thing you really need to be careful about is melting the soap base as it does not take long at all in a microwave and it would be easy to burn it or yourself....The soaps take a couple of hours to set and the end result was brilliant...


This kit is for children aged 8 and over but Ellie is only 7 and absolutely loved it....I think it was because glitter was included....lol I think with things like this as long as they are supervised age does not really matter....

I think I am going to have to have a look for more of the soap base mix so we can make lots more....Included in the kit is plastic wrap and ribbons so you can make gifts....The girls have already said they would love to make some soap for my Aunty Jean and their Aunty Louise for Christmas....Such a lovely idea.

This kit costs £19.99 which I think is fantastic price for something like this....You can buy this kit via the Science 4 You website or their Amazon Shop.....

I was sent the Soap Factory kit free of charge to try....This is my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own...

  10. This looks great! I love crafty sets as presents and would love to make soaps, candles etc with my little girl when she's older. I'd love one of those pottery wheels too. This is much easier having it all in one kit then going to a craft shop and getting all the bits and bobs separately x

  12. I used to have a Chemistry Set when I was very young. The stuff that was in there was enough to make a very large explosion. It must have had an effect on me, as I got a PhD in Chemistry, and worked for ICI Explosives :-)
