The Soap House is based in, Lancashire. We make a variety of Handmade Soaps and Bath Products and we also sell wholesale ingredients for you to make your own soaps and bathbombs at very competitive prices.
All of our soaps, bath bombs and bath/body products are made by us, we believe in beauty not cruelty and so NONE of our products have been tested on animals... all of our products are suitable for vegans and they are gentle too, our products are SLS free and we use a range of products which soothe the skin such as essential oils, shea butter and more.
Our artisan soap loaves are designed to look bright and beautiful but to be gentle upon your customer's skin, our soaps are SLS Free (for those who are not familiar with SLS it is Sodium Lauryl Sulphate, our soaps contain in it's place Sodium Laureth Sulphate (SLES) it is a different ingredient to Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS). SLES is considered to be milder which is why we choose to use a soap base which is SLS free). We add to our soaps carefully chosen our essential oils or parfum fragrances. We do not use pigments in our soap or bath products and only colour the same using skin safe water colours. These are gentle on the skin and will not cause any staining. The water colours will over time blend and flow together, this is a natural process for water colours and adds to the effect of the soap as the colours blend together to create different colours and patterns. We have perfected our craft to create soaps which have shapes embedded inside them, twirls and curls, hearts and different layers to make them all the more appealing. Each Loaf has 14 slices, each slice weighs approximately 90g this varies slightly as our slices are all hand cut. Our loaves weigh an estimated 1250-1300g .
Our loaves are very competitively priced to allow you a minimum mark up of 2.5% when using our SRP, you are of course free to price the soaps as you wish. For example you pay less than £1 for a slice of soap, our SRP would be £2.50 per slice giving you an excellent mark up. From time to time we do offer our soap loaves on promotion at just £9.99 (sign up to our newsletter to be kept up to date on our promotions!) in this instance you can buy a slice at as little as 71p each! To see our range of Handmade Soap Loaves simply click here. We sell our Soap Loaves both whole or sliced/wrapped - the choice is yours!
Buying your soap by a whole loaf, unsliced is the most cost effective option which will offer you the greatest mark up. The loaf will be received whole, wrapped in cello wrap for you to slice yourself. A label will be provided which will detail the ingredients contained within the loaf, the batch number and useage instructions etc. We do not tend to supply our loofah soaps unsliced just because they are more difficult to slice due to the nature of the loofah running through them. However should you wish to receive it whole please just advise us at checkout and we will send it to you whole. If you are slicing your own soaps please see our slicing guide for helpful information.
Sliced and Wrapped
The loaf will be pre sliced by us into 14 slices which will be individually wrapped and labelled. We recommend that you have one unwrapped slice in your shop to allow customers to smell the fragrences we have found that customers sell many more bars when they have an open slice available. If sliced into 14 slices then each slice weighs 90g .
There is a nominal additional charge for the option of pre-cutting and wrapping. Should you wish to have your soaps sliced and wrapped you then there is an option when you are popping the loaf in your basket to select the sliced option, if you forget and want to add it later you can find the option in our packaging section, you can find wrapping here. You can choose to have our branded ribbon on your soap slices.
We sell a range of soap bakery cakes which are beautiful, they are so eye catching and make a fantastic display, again as with all of our products they offer a fantastic mark up, you can find our full range here, however if there is a cake that you are looking for and we don't offer please get in touch we can often help! The cakes can be supplied whole or sliced just like our soap loaves. Each cake slices into 12 very generous slices. The cakes are multiple layered, they have an exfoiliating oat soap layer, a soapy middle layer and a whipped soap topping, this is adorned with fruit or other decorations fitting to the scent of the soap.
Our bath bombs are one of our most popular products. We sell them in packs of 6 in a wide variety of fragrances and designs. Our bath bombs contain ingredients such as UK made cosmetic oils, along with other ingredients such as essential oils, real flowers, we have a huge range to choose from just click here to see our full selection. Our bath bombs are only made using water colours, we do not use any pigments in our bath bombs so that there is not a risk of staining and they are much more gentle on the skin. Each bath bomb is individually wrapped in cello and tied with curling ribbon ready for retail. Our bathbombs are approximately 140g in weight and have a diameter of 60mm, the weight will vary depending on their ingredients for example some bathbombs include flowers, petals and other ingredients and all of our bathbombs are handpressed. You can choose to have our branded (Ramsbottom Soap Co. - our retail company) labels on your bath bombs.
