I have been using the soapmaker program since 2002 and could not run my business without it. I depend on it for making formulas, pricing, inventory and much more. The new version has so many upgrades that I am not sure I have found them all. The new version is truly an amazing tool. Here are just a few of my favorites, feel free to post your favorite features using the comment feature at the bottom of this post.
- Creates a shopping list
- Once you print the recipe it will list the ingredients in the correct order and includes the INCI names. Great feature when creating an ingredient deck
- Let’s say you want to discontinue using an oil like almond oil from your product line. This program allows you call up a list of recipes using almond oil so you can revise your recipes. This is a great time saver for me!
- You can create invoices for clients
- You can add your soapmaking purchases into the program. It keeps track of your sales tax paid, shipping charges, ingredients purchased..
To check out the Soapmaker program go to www.soapmaker.ca. The brain behind this soap making calculator program is Crawford Woodman of Perth, Ontario Canada. His wife Diane is a successful well known soapmaker in the handmade soap industry. I had the pleasure of Diane staying with me for a visit back in 2002. Wish she lived closer, she is such a dear and caring person and such a great friend.
