where to buy ingredients for soap making



There are a lot of questions when you first begin making handmade soap. You not only need to learn about the soap making process but also about soap making ingredients. Oils, distilled water, lye, and all of the extras you can use to scent, decorate, or improve your batches. That involves learning how to choose the right recipes or formulate new ones based on the ingredients you want to use. I have a lot of information for you to discover on all of those topics, including free recipes. However, this piece focuses entirely on the practical matter of where to source natural soap making supplies.


Like all industries, some manufacturers produce high-quality products and materials, and some make inferior products. Yet others create fake products with misleading labeling. Often shipped to you from countries where cosmetic safety and standards are not as well regulated. Learning how to spot questionable cosmetic ingredients is a skill we all have to have when sourcing soap making supplies.


If you order from these companies, their ingredients will be offered in various quantities and price points, come with documentation and traceability and have a good shelf-life. Many professional soap makers, including myself, use them due to their reliability. You can scroll to the bottom of this piece for a list of soap making suppliers by country.


In many of my soap recipes, I include a link to where you can buy a relatively small amount of that ingredient. Online marketplaces, supermarkets, drug stores, and health food shops are great for getting enough ingredients to make small batches of soap. If you want to take up soapmaking as a regular hobby or business, you need to think bigger.


Dry goods, including spices and herbs, are soap making supplies that you can get from health food shops and ethnic food shops. Organic oatmeal, paprika, turmeric (dried or fresh), or even unusual fruit and oils. Ensure that the oil and dried products have a shelf life of at least a year, though.


To answer the enduring question, yes, you can use glass, pyrex, and stainless steel pans and tools for both soap making and food. However, they must be thoroughly cleaned between uses to avoid cross-contamination. So this way the hobby soap maker can save money on buying extra soap making equipment.


Soap molds come in different styles, and for small batches, I heartily recommend silicone molds. You can use the types made for baking, but sometimes they can be pretty flimsy. Instead, order silicone molds from specialty soap making suppliers or retailers. Silicone molds made for soap making, whether loaf or cavity style, are often thicker and reinforced. That makes them better for soap.


Your soaps can only be as good as the ingredients that go into them, which is why we only source the finest ingredients and supplies from ethical producers around the world. At Bulk Apothecary, we specialize in providing the highest-quality colors, additives, botanicals, seeds, bases, and more so you can design and produce the very best soaps.

Where can I buy the ingredients to make soap? One of the most common questions and rightly so as it is a bit of a mine field. It is important that you buy from reputable suppliers so that you know your raw materials are safe and of a cosmetic grade.


Which leads me on to Fresh Skin - brilliant for very reasonably priced essential oils. They carry a wide range and postage is free so you can order as little or as much as you like. I highly recommend you use them for these. Fresh Skin also sell fragrance oils and coconut oil which is very reasonably priced - refined coconut oil is perfect for soap making. Unfortunately they do not sell sodium hydroxide, I can only guess it is because of the courier issues.


Other recommended suppliers are The Soapery, a good range of ingredients but sadly no Sodium Hydroxide. Aromantic, as the Soapery but worth a check for slightly more obscure ingredients too. Soaposh , again ingredients but no Sodium Hyxdroxide. The Crafters Shop is also very popular for core soap making ingredients but no Sodium Hydroxide.


I just want to cover the subject of Sodium Hydroxide very quickly - yes you can buy it on Ebay, Amazon etc but if you do so you must check it is 100%, sometimes it gets mixed with a little of something else and that will throw the chemistry part of the soap making process out. If in doubt don't buy it as a ruined batch of soap is soul destroying.


Want to make soap and this all sounds confusing or you have no idea where to start? I can help with that. Take a look at my Online Soap Making Video Workshops and eBook Bundle I genuinely believe that taking a course before making your own soap is such a worthwhile investment. There are so many things that can go wrong and it may cost you more in the long run in wasted ingredients and your valuable time than the initial outlay of a course. Additionally I have a super friendly students only facebook group where you are welcome to ask questions at any time to help you nail the process and get that first batch made.


A few weeks ago, I asked y'all to vote for your favorite soapmaking suppliers in the country and boy, did you respond! Almost a thousand soapmakers cast their votes! We narrowed down the best soapmaking supplier by product category, plus the best soapmaking suppliers for customer service, quality, shipping, and prices!


If you are new to using essential oils, I have a slew of articles to get you started, including my top ten recommended essential oils for beginners, how to calculate your usage rate for essential oils, and the answers to common questions about using essential oils in soapmaking.


Bramble Berry was voted the best soapmaking supplier for fragrance oils by a landslide! Bramble Berry carries over 250 different fragrance oils. They are always adding new fragrances to their catalog, so it's easy to see why!


While I don't use fragrance oils often, there are a handful of soapmaking tutorials here on Modern Soapmaking that use fragrances. Plus, you can use fragrance oil in any soapmaking recipe you wish! I love using fragrance oils to bring notes to blends that are cost prohibitive in natural fragrances, or impossible to find - like chocolate, coffee, vanilla, fruity notes, and bakery scents!


Bramble Berry does it again - they were voted the best soapmaking supplier for natural colorants and botanicals! They offer dozens of natural colorants in the form of whole botanicals, powders, and other forms. Some of my favorites include Activated Charcoal for grey and black (and to also make other colors darker!) and Madder Root for a beautiful red or pink!


Like essential oils, I love using natural colorants for a wide variety of colors! Natural colorants offer a full rainbow of colors, in muted earthy hues, which is perfect for an all-natural soapmaker. If you are new to using botanicals and herbs in soapmaking, Jo created a beautiful series about coloring soap naturally here on Modern Soapmaking. 041b061a72
