Hands-On Therapy
Aug 2020 • Family
My teen son is on the Autism spectrum. We are always looking for therapeutic, hands-on activities to do. Gili’s studio is bright and sunny, spacious and colorful. It’s a lovely space to spend a couple of hours in. Gili makes for a welcoming and friendly host and was very accommodating of my son’s needs. Her well trained assistant Yael, was a great teacher. Gili is running a professional business - she has everything soap makers could ever need, right at her fingertips! I highly recommend a visit. It’s a memorable experience. Our next visit will be our 4th!
Thank you Gili!

I took two granddaughters, 16 and 11 years old, to this workshop. All three of us enjoyed it immensely...we had fun learning about how soap is made and what it contains, choosing our shapes, colors, aromas and styles..then making soap to take home....great activity for a wide range of ages!
Thanks Gili !

Well run and enjoyable activity for everyone
May 2020 • Friends
Note... This could be a great covid activity for a family group and it sits all ages (and artistic ability)!
What a great activity and so well run. It was interesting, creative, sociable and I have some incredible soap now at home.
Gili was a chemist and she 'knows soap'! She explained the technical side to making soap and then helped us experiment with colour, fragrance, texture, shape - she is open minded and was happy to let us go wild. We all made some totally different soap bars with great fragrance and wacky colour combinations. The little soap gummy bears are so cute.
Thanks also to Moriah, who was so calm assisting us.
By the way, the cake in the photo below is soap.
Highly recommended.

Fun for the whole family!
Mar 2020
We had such a fantastic time at the Ra’anana Soap Factory. We did a workshop just for our family. Kids and adults a like loved making the soaps, and as we were leaving our children were already asking when we could go back. The soaps we made were beautiful and creative (we came just before Purim, and made soap shaped like hamentaschen!). It was accessible and fun for everyone from a 5 year old through adults. Our kids are excited every time they get to wash their hands with the beautiful soaps they made, which is really helpful in this time of increased vigilance around hand washing. I really appreciated Gili's calm and patient manner. We walked in frazzled and late, and she put us right at ease with her calm and soothing demeanor. We loved it!

Soap making with my daughter
Jan 2020
We had such a wonderful time spending our time at the Soap cake factory. The owner, Gili was exceptional! As soon as we walked in, my daughter saw that she also had bath bombs there. So we asked if we can also learn how to make bath bombs. She immediately said yes, even though she admitted she had never given a bath bomb lesson before. And it was amazing! She was kind, fun, generous and very knowledgeable( we even had a one minute chemistry lesson about making soaps as she is a trained chemist)
The soaps themselves are luxurious and ALL natural. You will love going here! Highly recommend!

Amazing experience for my wife birthday.
Nov 2019
I was looking for present to my wife to her birthday and I found this place.
I called Gili and and we concluded a couple workshop.
Everything was amazing.
The place, the smells quality of the ingredients.
Gili gave us lots of information about the soaps, their production process and their abilities to give us the best for our bodies.
Gili is fluent in English and Hebrew and it is highly recommended to attend the workshop.
We came out very happy with a variety of soaps we made and chose scents and colors.

If you are around and do not come to do a workshop you will regret it :)

Soap Workshop- fun for all ages
Oct 2019
Had a great time with my four kids and in-laws at the Soap Cake Workshop. Each kid/adult learned all about soap and made their own unique soaps. We chose our own scents, colors, and molds. It was a great workshop. I would highly recommend it.
