Itinerary

    • Where is the soap making experience?

      Head to where the soap making experience will take place! “JDSA Tokyo” is in a building only a 3-minute walk away from Akihabara Station. The white-based interior is filled with soap-making equipment, and will fill you with anticipation for all the colors and scents you’ll be able to choose from! 
    • What color will you make your soap?

      This experience will let you make your own beauty soap using professional methods! Using the wide selection of samples, decide first what colors and scents you want to add to your soap. There are more than 50 options for scents alone! Pick your favorite scented oils and natural fragrances.
      Picture the soap you want to make, and take your time. If you feel lost, you can ask your instructors for recommendations! 
    • The process of making your handmade beauty soap

      Once you’ve decided on your color and scent, it’s time to put them together! Measure the ingredients and slowly mix them over 10-30 minutes. You’re aiming for a custard-like consistency.
    • Your beauty soap making experience is complete!

      Pour the ingredients into a mould, and - voila - you’ve just gifted yourself 5 unique blocks of high-quality soap! Hold your horses before you go rubbing it everywhere though. Like all good things, the soap will need some time before you can use it. They will be delivered to you 2-4 weeks after the workshop date (Shipping fees will be paid by the participant).
      
      Stamping the soap is a complimentary service to give them a little bit of flare. There are several types of stamps, so if you find a favorite, have your soaps pressed before they’re shipped!
