Packaging for Premium Soaps
Few things are more enticing than a beautiful, handmade bar of soap. If you're a soap maker, we know you've worked hard and waited patiently for each luxurious batch.
Here, we've outlined your options for sustainable packaging and shipping them in a way that protects all of the efforts you've put into your products while providing a premium unboxing experience for the customer.
What To Consider In Your Soap Packaging Strategy
You’ve mixed your lye, poured your soap, and patiently let it cure. It looks gorgeous and is ready to package and ship. What's next? You'll want to think through your primary packaging - the box or wrap directly around your soap - and your seconday packaging - the shipping package or retail bag, depending on how you sell your goods. But first, consider the following factors.
What kind of coverage and protection does your soap need? The answer is driven by your soap and supply chain and how likely your soap will be aggressively handled before reaching its final home.
For some brands, a simple EcoBand covering the soap bar will do. Others like to wrap their soap in paper; others need an individual box for each soap bar.
How do you typically sell your soaps - one, two, or three at a time? Do you sell your soaps in a kit with a predetermined number of bars? Do you include a soap holder in purchases? How diverse are your orders regarding the number of soaps your customers purchase? How various are the sizes of your soap bars?
For example, if your orders tend to be for three bars of soap of the same size, it would make sense to order custom shipping boxes to carry three units. On the other hand, if your orders tend to be more varied, you may decide to balance your shipping packaging between large boxes for higher-spend orders, small to medium boxes, and cushioned mailers.
So much care goes into the production of each bar of hand-crafted soap. And soap, more than most things people buy, evokes a sense of well-being and self-care. So, you likely want to ensure your customers feel pampered when they receive your order.
If you’re selling in a retail environment, this may mean branded shoppers or simple kraft shopping bags with tissue and hemp twine. If you’re shipping orders, branding your shipping boxes or mailers can go a long way. Alternatively, adding a personalized notecard featuring a thank you note and guidance on how to use, maintain, and maximize your soap is appreciated. If personalization isn’t right for your company, designed tissue paper or ornament shred can add a wow factor to your packaging.
