Best Suppliers Handmade Soap
When starting in the handmade soap business
one of the most important tasks is to choose good suppliers. Here
is a list of some of my favorite suppliers. I hope this helps
you save hours and hours of time and money by cutting out all
of the trial and error associated with finding reputible suppliers.
My favorite is Columbus Foods. This company
supplies your soap making oils in bulk for wjolesale commodity
pricing. Mike Lawson is the main salesman there on the sap
making side. They are also suppliers to the restaurant and food
industries. The soap supply side of their business in dine at
soaperschoice.com. Here you get a nice list of all of the oils
they sell. They have hard to find exotic oils as well as the staples.
If you live close by in the Chicago are you can pick-up your supplies
and save boatloads of cash on shipping.
On the fragrance side of the business I seem to be buying a lot
of fragrances from Trilogy. They are located in New Jersey
and minimum requirements for purchases. They also supply both
fargarnce and essential oils.I find myself buying more
and more from them because of the quality of their products. You
can't use them for all of your choices because you don't need
5 lbs of every fragrance, but for your staples thay are a good
idea. They were previously known as Royal Aromatics.
Lye is expensive to ship beacause you have to
pay hazmat shipping fees. If you can buy your lye locally then
that is the preferred option.If you cannot be sure and buy at
least fifty pound of lye to get your volume discount. I know it
sounds like alot but you will go through your lye before you know
it. Boyer Corporation is a great choice for the beginner
and they will ship anywhere is the USA.
Botanials can be bought very reasonably from wholesale
suplies plus. They have a very wide variety of botanicals
at great prices. I have also found they have great customers ervice.
