Start a Soap Making Business from Home

What you will be doing.  We all need to be clean. Many soaps on the market have a deodorant smell and chemicals that can irritate the skin. In the early days of settlements, people made their own soap.

Using natural items, soap had fewer ingredients to go along with that cleaning power. As a soap maker, you will be providing people with a brand of soap that is more environmentally and bodily friendly.

How to start.  Think about the need for natural soap. Are there other soap makers in the area? With everyone going “green,” this will be the perfect time to give the soap making business a try. This business is not without its regulations. The manufacture of such goods is regulated by the food and drug administration. The area where the soap is made will probably need to undergo inspection on a regular basis. Having a business permit signifies that you are doing business officially. This is when you register the name that you will be doing business under.

There is no need for a separate facility if you have adequate space in your home. It could be a garage or outbuilding, but the area is just for the business and manufacture of soap. Decide on the ingredients. Anyone making their own soap already has recipes they’d like to tryout or may have tried out for the family to use. Create a few test bars in a variety of combinations to see how they fare.

Starting costs.  The costs can get out of hand quickly. The area where soap making will be conducted will have to be outfitted with the necessary equipment. Purchasing from a wholesaler can cut some of those startup costs. There is also the cost of packaging. You can experiment with a few looks by asking suppliers for a few freebies to see what works.

A computer, telephone, copier, and design software aid in attracting business and coming up with creative packaging ideas. Look to spend around $2,000 to $5,000 at the outset.

Skills needed.  A soap maker must know about making soap. The process requires patience and know-how to produce a marketable product. Without this skill, any others won’t matter. Because this is a specialty item, a flare for marketing and advertising will be a great asset in selling the product.

Marketing.  The field is wide open here. There are several ways to go about it. Showcasing your soaps at trade shows, flea markets, and household shows gives people from other places a chance to smell and sample the soaps. Direct marketing will serve you well when trying to attract businesses like bed and breakfast establishments, restaurants, and other tourist places.

To reach a larger audience, begin a website. Soaps can be sold over the Internet. As the business grows, branch out into other beauty products that are all natural. Join manufacturing associations that can help with advertising and other business tips.
