A crisp clean scent, Mountain Lake.
While stocking the shelves at one of the stores I sell my soap, a customer walked by and started smelling the different scents I sell. Upon checking the price of a bar of soap she asked me, "how do you stay in business selling soap for $6.00 when a person can buy soap much cheaper at the grocery store?"
That is a good question. First I have to think about the product. Soap is a reusable product. Everyone uses it. Everyone buys more when they run out. I need to be the one they come to when they run out. I can not compete with the stores on price so I have to have a better quality product. My soap sells for $6.00 for a 4 oz. bar of soap. It has been over 10 years since I bought soap at the store but I am sure you can buy something for $1.00. I make sure my soap uses the finest ingredients. I buy local whenever possible to reduce the impact I make on the environment. I support local merchants to keep my money in my community.
A sweet tart scent, Sunkissed Currant.
My goal is not to compete with a grocery store when it comes to selling soap. They can sell a basic bar of no frills soap for a cheap price. I want to sell a quality, luxurious bar of soap that will delight your skin, overload your senses with pleasure from the soft silky bubbles to the heady scents I use. I want you to breathe deep and imagine yourself in a spa instead of your shower. When you are drying off I want your skin to feel soft and pampered.
I want you to have a choice. I want to make the best soap possible so you don't have to settle for less. I guess that is how I stay in business. There will always be people who will not settle for anything but the best. I will be there for them.
A fresh green scent, Clover.
