ABOUT THE INDUSTRY
Most in the Handmade Cosmetic and Soap Industry started making soaps and lotions out of a desire to provide themselves and family with more natural based skin care products. Before they knew it, friends and extended family were appreciating the product quality and offering to pay for small batch extras. From there many profitable microbusinesses are born.

Handmade soap and cosmetic companies take pride in the products they make and are committed to producing the safest products possible. Using largely food-grade ingredients, handmade cosmetic makers produce products that are used on their children, family, friends and are sold face-to-face to neighbors and valued customers.

Handmade soap and cosmetic businesses are very small and cater to customers who wish natural-based custom products. Handmade soaps and cosmetics are usually sold at local farmers markets, craft shows, boutique stores, home parties, and community fundraisers.

Proctor & Gamble, Aveda, Burt’s Bees and Mary Kay are just a few companies that were established by handmade entrepreneurs.
