National Soapmaking Day

National Soapmaking Day is the Last Sunday in September

Officially Registered by Kerri Mixon on January 20, 2020

Spend the Sunday creating your own handmade soap to celebrate National Soapmaking Day. Whether you're making soap to share for Christmas, to sell at an autumn craft fair, or to use on Global Handwashing Day, this is the perfect day to learn a new hobby and honor the early pioneers who regularly made their own soap. National Soapmaking Day was registered by Kerri Mixon, the Master Soapmaker at Pallas Athene Soap, who is a 16th generation soapmaker. This is a day for celebrating soapmaking, sharing soapmaking with the world, and appreciating the people who participate in soapmaking. Unleash your inner chemist on National Soapmaking Day!
