I only know that they sell glycerine at all the pharmacies. I'm not sure how much you would need, but a little bottle, say 6 oz, was like AED 16. We drink goats milk. I buy that at Car4, MCC, in the soy milk section. It's an organic UHT British brand. I want to say it costs AED 10, but I don't recall so well at the moment. I've also seen it at Spinneys, Mirdif, but they have a more upscale brand (at least I remember it costing more).

There are no soap making classes in Dubai unfortunately, and materials such as soap base also not available, what kind of soap do you want to make melt and pour or cold process?

That would be awesome! You should hold classes! I was thinking of cold process would be a good start since i know nothing pretty much seems like a good start...or what do u think?

Actually i've doing the melt and pour kind and i get the clear glycerine base and goat milk base from US but as i said the shipping is way to expensive...Usually i do it for gifts and i need some to give to my sisters in law for EID... I have an idea of how to do it with caustic soda but i don't know where to get it here...

I'd really appreciate if u can help me..

Thanks for answering me , but i was asking about the soap base, its a soap u can melt and add ingredients to make your very own personalized soap...

DH used to be a high school science teacher here, he suggests you contact one of the scientific supply places in Bur Dubai behind the Karama post office or in Deira in the warehouse area opp Hamarain shopping Ctr.

BTW, there was an article in The National about an Emirati lady in Liwa who figured out how to make soap from date seeds from Internet tutorials and lots of trial and error.

I would not advise trying to learn from the internet, there's safety concerns using caustic materials and proper first hand instruction is advisable. Besides there's a lot more to it than just mixing up ingredients. I'd be happy to help.


So looking forward to these classes!!!

Yes you are right, back in 2012 there weren't any soap making classes, but there are classes available nowadays, try this link

No idea how much the course charges but it looks pretty comprehensive.

Best of luck with your new hobby!
