Make Your Own Soap (SBD-5214-KIT)

Price:   $147.00   
The process of making soap involves a chemical reaction called saponification. With this kit you will learn about saponification by making your own soap as described in the Science Buddies project "The Chemistry of Clean." The kit contains all the materials needed to carry out the chemical steps to transform coconut oil into a usable bar of soap, and purify it with salt to measure how its pH changes with its purity. At the end of the process all you need to do is mix in the scented oils and you will have your own homemade soap!

Kits contain tested materials to ensure that you have what you need to successfully complete your science project, have fun, and learn some science along the way!
