Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. (1 Thessalonians 5:11)

About the creator

Cathy, D' Clumsy Soaper had stumbled across her passion for making soap at the young age of 13. She followed her passion for science and creating, and with the assistance of her parents, she proudly graduated with a Degree in Chemistry in 2001. She took and passed the Chemistry licensure board examinations and her career began in the Philippines where she explored various Laboratory Chemist positions for 6 years under the Foods/Chemical/Testing Services Industries – ultimately landing her overseas in 2007, working as a Research & Development Chemist in the Biotech/Pharma/Medical Device industries.

Cathy believes in life long learning. Despite her busy work schedule, she took night classes and earned a Specialist Diploma in Accounting and Finance in 2010. During her free time, she had spent many weekends making soaps as a hobby, which deepened her passion. She always had a unique flair, dropping and breaking things, which inspired her to create D’Clumsy Soaper Youtube Channel.

To reduce the amount of routine calculations and bring more ease into her process – she transferred her skills from chemistry to design a soap lye calculator - My SoapCalc™. This had saved her time, effort and money in making initial decisions for her soap formulas. Although she may drop the odd spatula, she has confidence that her calculator is precise and consistent for her end products.

Cathy added convenient features and a number of added functions to ease the process of soap recipe generations and calculations. She wishes to help as many soap makers as she can, helping create better recipes & providing My Soap Calc™ to do so.

She is continuing to grow the database for your benefit, so if you see any oils that are not listed – let her know. Any questions are welcome and enjoy creating accurate recipes with My Soap Calc™.
