"I love this course! It has all I need to know to feel more secure when I make soaps. Marta is a great teacher and helps you with all the questions. Now I´m planning my own recipes and I can´t wait to try them out! Finally, I can create what I need to take care of my sensitive skin with zero waste."

"I discovered soap making by chance through a friend of mine and it immediately struck me. At the beginning I thought it was quite dangerous to use lye to make something apparently so easy and “innocent” let’s say. With experience I’ve learned that nothing bad can happen if you are careful and that on the other hand making soap gives you the opportunity to explore your creativity mixing different ingredients and additives including flowers and herbs. The feeling of making something for yourself for free is something not only useful but absolutely priceless!"

"Uso il sapone solido da quasi 10 anni perché diventata mamma volevo la soluzione più sana e sostenibile per le mie figlie.Ho poi iniziato a tentare l’autoproduzione ma il poco tempo per sperimentare mi ha portato alla decisione di affidarmi all’esperienza e competenza di Marta.Sono molto soddisfatta del corso, che se anche non ho ancora finito, mi ha dato gli strumenti per mettermi subito all’opera e sono ormai alla quarta produzione di saponette. Grazie Marta!"

"One thing I love about soap making is the ability to know what exactly are in my soaps. They are not just normal soaps but something I make with love. I can feel it when I use it and I am sure everyone who makes their own soaps feels the same. I am glad I participated in the Bottega Zero Waste Soap Making Course. Goal achieved! The course is very informative, nicely structured, and easy to understand. Plus, the video quality is really good!"

"Ho iniziato a fare i miei primi saponi poco prima di iscrivermi al corso di Marta. Essendo una principiante ho trovato molto utile trovare tutte le informazioni base spiegate in maniera chiara. Quando poi ho iniziato a impratichirmi un po' di più ho trovato tanti spunti per poter creare saponi diversi con texture, colori e profumi differenti.Mi piace usare i miei saponi perché so come sono stati fatti, quali ingredienti contengono e crearli ed usarli ormai è diventata una routine speciale."

Meet Your Instructor

Hi! my name is Marta and I love minimal, zero waste, simple living. 

My zero waste journey started with soap making: for me, it was the first step to take control on the waste I was producing as well as what I was putting on my skin. 

I truly think that zero waste living is actually simple if you follow the right steps: just like soap making!
