Premium Soaps

There are few things 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 shipping them in a way that protects all of the effort you've put into them while providing a premium unboxing experience for the customer.

Packaging Considerations

You'll want to consider a few questions before moving forward:
  • Are your soaps already fully covered in retail style packaging? Or are they labeled with a band (but not fully covered)? Soap makers who don't fully cover their bars in retail style packaging are often concerned about different soaps touching each other within the shipping package. If that's your model, you'll want to make sure your solution fully separates each soap product. You can separate soaps through by wrapping each of your products in packaging paper or GreenWrap or by developing custom inserts for shipping boxes.
  • How do you typically sell them - one at a time, two at a time, three at a time, etc?
  • How diverse are your orders in terms of the number of soaps your customers purchase?
  • Are all of your soaps the same size and shape?

Packaging Recommendations

If you mainly see orders for just one bar of soap, consider:
These are both well priced and operationally efficient options (easy to store and no assembly or tape required) and both are fully recyclable. Padded Mailers can be custom printed to promote your brand and strengthen the customer experience.

If you typically sell two or more bar soaps and have a lot of consistency and uniformity in your orders (i.e. all bars are the same size, and customers typically order four), a single box with separating inserts would work well.

If, on the other hand, there is a lot of diversity among your products and orders, a shipping box with void fill and cushioning may be preferred. If you need to separate your bar soaps from each other, use GreenWrap or Packaging Paper. If your soaps are already wrapped for retail, you can also consider tissue paper, ornament shred or corrugated bubble, which can be used as nesting.
