As we approach the Autumn - and therefore the start of Christmas shopping season shock horror! - we thought we'd give a little shout out to a few of the many Small Business Owners who get their Soap Making Supplies from The Soap Foundry.
Blorenge Soaps - Joanne Mason
Made in Blaenavon in Wales, Blorenge Soaps sells truly local scents crafted using Heather, Coal, Welsh Honey, Wimberry and Daffodils, each one with a quirky local story - or legend - behind it.
It all started when the owner was walking on the Blorenge Mountain amongst the Heather and thought "I want some Welsh Heather soap" and looked to buy some but couldn't find any. Today, the owner makes them herself. All of her soaps are vegan apart from the honey soaps, and all are oil based with no animal products used, apart from the honey soaps which, have honey and bees wax in them.
Little Soap Shed - Mandy Richardson
As a small, family run business, Mandy prides herself in ensuring high quality by creating and packing all of her soaps in small batches by hand in Cornwall.
Selling everything from artisan soaps to body scrubs and home fragrance, The Little Soap Shed has tonnes on offer, including cute washbags to keep everything stored safely in!
Kandy Krafts Soapery - Sarah's Story
"Hi, my name is Sarah and I'm the Soapmaker at Kandy Krafts Soapery. I've been making and creating handmade artisan cold process soap for over 2 years now and have absolutely fallen in love with it. My soaps are vegan and cruelty free and I wouldn't want it any other way! I wanted to bring a lot of colour and fun to my soaps so my designs can be very quirky and sometimes a bit "out there" but I think they reflect my bubbly personality! I came across The Soap Foundry and they're amazing products a few months ago and I used their No Sweat Clear Melt and Pour to use for my embeds on some of my soaps and it was the best M & P as it did exactly what it said on the tin."
At The Soap Foundry, we also work with Local Discovery Card which covers The Wye Valley and surrounding areas. Supporting local independent businesses has never been so important and Local Discovery Card make it easier to save money, support the community and discover the staggering assortment of businesses that exist in abundance across the region.
So there you have it - a brief welcome to some of our soap making wholesale customers - we wish them all well this coming Winter shopping season.
