All of Back Porch Soaps hands-on, natural skincare and soap making classes are taught by Marla Bosworth , president and founder of Back Porch Soap Company. She brings 30 years experience in retail, marketing and market research (13 years experience in the handmade bath and body industry, specifically). During the past 10 years she has taught thousands of students worldwide how to make soap, start a soap business, and formulate skincare products. Here’s what some of the students have said about her classes:

“I really enjoyed the Bath & Body Business Boot Camp. The information Marla gave was excellent. I am excited about the new levels of my Bath & Body Business.” –Ronisha F.

“This boot camp was well worth the investment. Marla was extremely knowledgeable and organized. The biggest benefit (other than the valuable information) was to have the focus on bath and body. All of the questions were relevant. It was also great to meet other women and develop relationships with them.” –Carla M.

“Marla is awesome! Inspiring and motivational. She is so business savy! She gave me so much information and clarified any questions I had. Marla is a wonderful instructor and an overall great business leader. Thanks Marla!” –Anonymous

“This is the most ‘user’ friendly workshop I’ve ever attended. Everyone was so nice and helpful. Marla is so knowledgable and is a wonderful instructor!!! I thoroughly enjoyed this experience and I’ve learned a lot! Thank you so much.” –Anonymous

“I loved Marla and think she did an excellent job. She covered a lot in a short period and was very easy to communicate with.” –Janice

    Does Marla ever give online classes? I live in East Texas and it would be a long trip to take the class.

    Hi Debbie,

    You could contact Marla about online classes as I am not 100% sure. I do know she has E books & Dvd’s available here is the direct link

    Hi Debbie,

    I’m hoping to make it to Texas in 2013 or 2014 to teach a series of workshops!

    In the meantime, I will be offering more online classes on my website.

    best wishes,
