If you are looking for something fun to do with the kids this school holidays, then why not try our Build-A-Soap experience? What better way to get the kids excited about bath time. Our Build-A-Soap experience has no minimum age (or maximum age for those parents looking to join in the fun) and takes place in our workshop/storefront which is open rain, hail or shine. We are also conveniently located on the main street of Gosford, just across from the newly re-opened waterfront park (Leagues Club Field).

Our Build-A-Soap experience is all about choice and customisation. At the end of the experience, kids will leave the store with 200g (makes a minimum of 2 bars) of customised melt and pour soap, all properly wrapped and packaged in a take home baggie of their own design.

Each young soap maker gets the following as part of their experience:

  • Choose their favourite shapes from our extensive selection. Trains? Butterflies? Dinosaurs? Pineapples? We can make our soaps in many different shapes and sizes.

  • Use their nose and smell their way through the different scents we have on offer. This includes some popular kid favourites like watermelon and fairyfloss.

  • Choose colours for their soap. Each soap maker can choose two colours to create a blended, multicoloured finish.

  • Help us to use the scales and weigh out the correct quantity of melt and pour soap.

  • Watch one of our professional (grown up) soap makers combine their choice of shape, scent and colour to create a personalised soap exactly to their design.

  • Decorate and draw a design on an eco friendly brown paper baggie that they will use to carry home their soap.


  • Experiences that are booked on a weekday (Wed, Thu, Fri) include a complementary kids snack pack (sandwich, chips and juice popper) which can be claimed from Apricot Cafe next door on the day of your experience. And for the accompanying parents - a medium coffee for just $3 as their kids chow down on their snack pack.


  • The experience takes place one booking at a time and is on offer for up to five children at once. If you have booked for less than five, additional children can be added and paid for in store at the time of the experience.

  • Depending on the number of children, the experience can take anywhere between 30-60 minutes to make the soap. After the soaps have been poured, they require approximately 45 minutes to be cooled and wrapped to take home. During this time you may stop in at the Apricot Cafe to claim your complementary kids snack packs (weekdays only) or pop into one of the other nearby cafes. You are also welcome to browse the store or pop over to the the park across the street while we package your soap ready for pickup.

  • Parents need to remain with the children during the experience for supervision purposes. There are no age limits for Build-A-Soap. Parents who wish to make their own batch of soap are welcome - standard costs and group size limits apply.


  • To avoid disappointment, we recommend making a booking to reserve your spot. This can be done online HERE as well as in store or via email/phone.

  • Walk in Build-A-Soap experiences are possible, but are subject to availability. Booking ahead of time is highly recommended.
