Our Favorite Supplies/Materials/Equipment

Here's some resources for picking up soap making supplies and suppliers!  These are all resources we currently use or have used and still trust.  Some of these are affiliate links and will be marked with ***.  These have the same price you would normally pay but we get a percentage back if you use our links.  It's a great way to help support us and doesn't cost you anything extra!

 

As a reminder:  Many suppliers are experiencing delayed processing and shipping right now due to COVID-19 measures.  Please be kind and patient with them! 

 

***Our Amazon Affiliates storefront

https://www.amazon.com/shop/catandravendesigns

Contains a variety of equipment and ingredients for soap making, bath bombs, and lip balms.  We often still buy our equipment from Amazon.  For things like oils, in small quantities combined with free shipping, Amazon is the best pricing when you're first starting out.  Once you need to buy in larger quantities, it's better to purchase those from a different source.

***SaveOnCitric

Purchasing things like oils becomes cheaper as you buy in larger quantities.  At this stage for us, we buy things like coconut oil in 5 gallon buckets, which is cheaper from suppliers like Save On Citric (also called Chemistry Connection).  The shipping costs are higher than Amazon but at the volumes we purchase, the cost per pound of oils is still cheaper.  And because of that, we purchase almost all of our oils from them.

***Nurture Soap

A great resource for a lot of the skin safe micas we use!  Most of our current supply of colorants come from NS.  Admittedly, we don't often purchase fragrances from them as we find their prices to be on the higher end for those.  However, they do offer free shipping on orders over $30 in the US.

***Mad Micas

A new favourite of ours!  Our current #1 supplier for biodegradable glitters, titanium dioxide, and black iron oxide.  We have slowly been incorporating more of their mica colorants as well because their potency is awesome.  They also ship very quickly!

 

Wholesale Supplies Plus

https://www.wholesalesuppliesplus.com/

Another favourite of ours for fragrances, additives, molds, and a number of other bits and bobs.  Plus it's hard to beat free shipping on orders over $25 in the US!
