tygerheart's Shop Announcement

Welcome to Tygerheart Fine Soaps. Let me be your savonnier. Let me be your teacher.

Tygerheart Fine Soaps offers pure, handmade soap. For your consideration are traditional lye soap formulations which contain various blends of animal fats, rendered from local sources, and vegetable oils. We also have a blend which contains no animal products at all, only olive, coconut, and castor oils. Our soaps have always been palm oil free.

The name, Tygerheart, comes from the area where my family lives, on the Middle Tyger River in the Upstate of South Carolina.

Learn to make soap with Carol Isler

For nearly 20 years Carol has been making traditional soaps like her pioneer ancestors did. A retired chemistry teacher and science department chair, she taught soap making to her Chem II classes at James F. Byrnes High School in Duncan, South Carolina. Carol is a certified soap maker and soap making instructor through the Handcrafted Soap Makers Guild. Through years of experience, she has become an expert soap formulator, crafting soaps using locally grown botanicals as well as essential and fragrance oils.

In a basic level soap making class Carol will show you how to make soap from fats, oils, and lye. You will learn where to get materials, how to work safely with lye, how to mix lye with oils to initiate the reaction called saponification, and create luxurious handcrafted soaps for your family and friends. The basic class is 3 hours long. You will get hands on experience, a packet of instructions, and the confidence to attempt to make soap on your own at home.
