Wholesale Soap – Handmade Soap Loaves and Bulk Bars of Soap
Why buy wholesale soap from our company? Since 1999 we have been producing 1000’s of pounds of natural handmade soap. Entire loaves of soap are ready for you to cut into bars and label with your own company name. Large soap blocks now available at a discounted price over single loaves. If there is one thing we know, it is soap. Also, Soap by the Loaf and Aromagregory specialize in soaps made with real essential oils. We use trusted suppliers for our ingredients – many of them chosen for their sustainability and green efforts. All soaps are made by hand in our Tennessee workshop.
ANNOUNCEMENT: NEW SOAP RECIPE — 2018 marks a time of change for the aromagregory and Soap by the Loaf company. After 18 years, it has become necessary to reformulate our soap recipe. The decision is not only based on dwindling supplies but also to further improve the quality of our product and to join the latest movements towards more earth and health friendly ingredients.
Homogenized soybean has been a major ingredient for us since 1999. It was chosen because of the stable lather it provided in the overall recipe. However, with growing health concerns in the food industry, which supplies the same oils for soap makers as restaurants, soybean in this form is no longer readily available because of the FDA ban on trans-fats in foods. Also, this soybean was listed as a GMO, a concern for a small group of our customers, even though this end product (soap) was not consumed.
Beginning in 2018, the soybean in our soap will be replaced with sustainable palm oil. There were two choices available to us to keep our recipe as close as possible to the original. They were palm or tallow. We knew that the animal product beef tallow was simply not an acceptable option for our customer base or our company. With that in mind, we sought out SUSTAINABLE palm.
What is sustainable palm?
The Roundtable of Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) is a global certification organization formed to set the standard for sustainable palm oil, which includes a set of environmental and social criteria that companies must comply with to produce Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO).
One of the most important RSPO criteria states that no primary forests or areas which contain significant concentrations of biodiversity (e.g. endangered species) or fragile ecosystems, or areas which are fundamental to meeting basic or traditional cultural needs of local communities (high conservation value areas), can be cleared.
Other RSPO principles stipulate a significantly reduced use of pesticides and fires; fair treatment of workers according to local and international labor rights standard, and the need to inform and consult with local communities before the development of new plantations on their land.
How will this change our soaps at aromagregory and Soap by the Loaf?
1. will create a harder bar of soap
2. will create a bar of soap that is longer lasting
3. no GMO oils present in our soap
4. no issues for customers who have a problem with soybean products
We hope that you will join us in embracing this new formula, which will create a better quality bar of soap that is both earth-friendly and supports fair labor rights. We are excited to “up our game” and take our great soap to the next level. Better and longer lasting? What’s not to love about that?
We know that it can be extremely confusing when customers are shopping around for wholesale soap, especially when the fragrance oil versus essential oil debate begins. Trusting that your supplier actually KNOWS the difference in essential oils and fragrance oils is an important factor in choosing who makes your soap. We carry both real essential oil soap and soap made with fine fragrance. The two are never mixed. Essential oil soap is ALL essential oils, while our fragrance varieties contain no essential oils. Each type is clearly marked.
Soap by the Loaf and Aromagregory tells you every single ingredient found in our wholesale soap. The list is simple – olive oil, coconut oil, sustainable palm oil and shea butter. The scent comes from real plant based essential oils (or fine fragrances) and the color comes from oxides and pigments – in other words, the same colorant used to make mineral makeup.

|HOW TO CUT SOAP INTO BARS AND LOAVES –
How do you cut fresh soap? Your soap arrives to you in whole loaves or entire blocks. It is best to unwrap the loaves and cut them into bars as soon as they arrive. It is much easier for the bars to cure when air can reach the entire surface of the bar. That’s rather hard to do when the bars are still compacted together into one solid loaf. We even have a video on this page demonstrating how to cut your soap
|CURING SOAP – THE PROCESS EXPLAINED –
The reason soap needs to be cured is similar to the reason why cheese needs to be aged. If you follow the simple rules of how to cure your soap, it will make all the difference in the response you get from customers. Their bars will last longer and they will come back for more. learn how to cure soap here
|LABELING SOAP – WAYS TO LABEL YOUR SOAP BARS –
If anything, properly labeling your soaps can be very helpful in selling. Labels also keep your company name in the customers mind. I always tell new customers to put the labels in a drawer in their bathroom or in the linen closet. That way, when it comes time to order more soap, they don’t have to try to remember what the soap was called. If YOU are new to them, they won’t have to try to remember your company name, either. learn about soap labeling here
