Are your soap bars made to order?

Our soap bars require 6-12 weeks to cure, therefore we make small batches of soaps to sell once ready. They are not made to order but are part of a small batch made recently.

What do you do with excess stock?

Fortunately as our products are made to order, we don’t have excess stock. This is so we don’t have any waste in products by making in bulk.

What do you do with old soap bars / failed soap bar batches?

Sometimes the soaps we make aren’t suitable to sell due to a number of factors that influence the reaction of the end result. We usually just use them on ourselves as they still lather and clean, or offer to give them away to people requesting them.
