About the Author
In 2008, after learning the craft of soapmaking, Amanda started an educational blog at LovinSoap.com, which features step-by-step full color photographic tutorials, articles, troubleshooting advice and general information about soapmaking. She publishes eZines (online magazines) and eBooks on the topic of soapmaking and has written for industry publications such as Handmade Magazine, Saponifier and Soap Collaborative.
In 2009, she started teaching classes in Dallas and Austin, providing hands-on workshops where students could totally immerse themselves in the craft of soapmaking and confidently learn the craft. Students from all over the United States have attended her hands-on workshops and even a few students have travelled from out of the country to attend!
In 2013 after a heart-moving teaching trip to Haiti to teach a group of women who lived in a tent camp how to make soap, she decided that she would use her love of teaching to help as many women in the same situation as she could. She created a not-for-profit, with her partner Benjamin Aaron, whose aim was to teach women in developing nations the craft and the business of soapmaking - tackling two of poverty's biggest issues - lack of access to hygiene and lack of economic opportunity for women. The Lovin' Soap Project is a registered 501(c)(3) and is currently working in Haiti, Uganda, China, India and will continue to expand to other areas where women need opportunity.
