Soap Visor Review: A New Kind of Safety Gear

Safety gear in soapmaking is an absolute necessity, but goggles can be a huge pain. Especially for those of us who sport glasses. Is there another option? There is now with the Soap Visor!

When Alegna Soap approached Modern Soapmaking to review this new product, I wasn’t sure what to expect. 100% of the time that I soap, I make sure to gear up for the worst-case scenario: long sleeves – ✓ gloves – ✓ eye protection – ✓

You never know what could happen when you are using caustic chemicals so it is always the best practice to follow all the measures make handmade soap safely and protect yourself!

The Soap Visor: An Alternative to Soapmaking Goggles

SPOILER ALERT: I love this soap visor!

At first glance: unboxing the Alegna Soap Visor

When the soap visor first arrived, I was pleasantly surprised. After easily constructing the visor (it came in three parts: the visor and two clear Op-d-Op shields). I tried it on and instantly felt more protected than with regular goggles.

The design of the visor itself is lightweight and well constructed. It fits securely with a toggle cord that is easy to loosen or tighten. There is a piece of foam that also adds a level of comfort along with slippage prevention while wearing the visor.

Now for the most ingenious element of this entire design – the Op-d-Op shield.

This shield is what made me a believer. It not only protects my entire face, but it’s also crystal clear, and DOES NOT fog! Occasionally I wear my glasses while I soap, and they tend to fog up or feel uncomfortable underneath goggles. However, with this soap visor that is no longer an issue. The visor is truly comfortable as well as easy to clean. Soaping can be messy, with splashes or smears from residue left on your gloves. With a quick wipe down, the shield returns to its crystal clear state.

This visor is wonderful not only for soaping but for any activity that requires eye protection. From bath bomb creation to lotion making, the possibilities are truly endless.

But, there is one downside…

I cannot think of many issues with this visor other than lye solution mixing. When I mix my solution, I use an industrial respirator, which the visor does not fit over. But in all other cases, this visor is my first choice eye protection.

It comes in 7 different colors and costs $38.00 USD (at time of publication). I would recommend this visor as a great alternative to traditional goggles especially if you wear glasses.

  1. We wear these all the time in the hospital lab (along with long sleeves, gloves and closed toe shoes). I have never worn one soap making, but it makes sense. I make a way bigger mess with soap than I do at work, lol, I should be better protected. And these are waaayyyyy cuter than hospital issue! Great idea!

  2. What a great idea! I have some goggles I use sometimes, but this makes so much sense! Thank you so much, I am a bit new to the soapmaking world and really appreciate the tips!

  3. My Mom makes soap, some pretty awesome soap actually, but I know burns herself sometimes. This would be a great gift for her. Now, enough soap browsing! I have like 5,000 visitor passes to print off and the kids started school yesterday!!! Ahhh!!

  4. SO much easier than goggles, and more effective too. A piece of plastic broke of my stick blender while I was using it. If I hadn’t been wearing this visor, I would have had a cut and a lye burn on my cheek. Only question: how do I get replacement shields?

  5. This visor could be a really cool addition to a soap maker’s gear collection. It looks like it would provide good eye-protection which is really important. I don’t think the price is too bad if it will last a while and do the needed job. Thanks for sharing!
