Saponification is soap making: it uses fat (oils) and a strong base (also called lye, usually sodium hydroxide in water) to create the chemical reaction. In small scale, the soap is made in small batches. The only parts I know that are re-used are the mixing containers and molds. The actual ingredients (oils and lye) are used up in the process due to the specific ratio they must be mixed to get the soap correct.
