Raw Materials

Sourcing basic materials like coconut oil and cocoa butter are easy, 8 on a scale of 1-10. Fragrance can be a bit more difficult to source and is a 6 on a scale of 1-10. The solid surfactants and conditioning agents are the most difficult, 2 on a scale of 1-10. This is why we recommend and insist that we purchase ALL the raw materials before we start production as a cheap hedge against supply shortages and cost increases.

Solid Surfactant Mill and Augers

Solid surfactants, like SCI, come in many different forms with powder costing the most and chips costing the least. Our 10HP hammer mill has 4 different size screens which mills product from powder to 2.5mm. The augers are able to move about 40 lbs of material a minute and the air filtration system keeps the dust down.

Tilt Steam Kettle

Holds over 1500 pounds of material and can reach temperatures of 200ºF+. The 10 HP motor and agitator easily mixes all product thoroughly and in a timely manner.

Duplex Plodder with Vacuum Chamber

This impressive machine takes the soft base and work hardens it while removing any trapped air. The product is extruded through a 2D die into….

Soap Cutter

The rotary indicator ensures that every bar is the precise length the digital controls tells it be. The pneumatic blade is heated and cuts like a hot knife through butter along a free-moving track. A conveyor carries up to 100 bars a minute out of the machine…

Soap Press

The special brass alloy dies are chilled down to -17C to keep the billets from sticking to the 4 cavities. Top speed can deliver over 48 bars per minute.

Cartoner Machine

And into your custom carton (box) they go along with a batch number/production date.

Ready for Shipment

For larger orders and repeat clients. We will have custom master-shipper made to hold roughly 200 units and weigh less than 50 pounds. This makes shipping and handling to you or a Fulfillment Center as easy as possible. Need custom master-shippers for Amazon? We can do that too.
