About This Episode


  • Plastic wrap -It’s fairly easy to get and simple to use.
  • Cigar bands – You can cut a piece of decorative card stock and wrap it around your soap and apply the label
  • Shrink Wrap – Requires a bit more of an investment but does create a more polished and consistent look.

Remember it’s not just about the packaging, if the quality of the product is no good, it won’t matter how you packaged it. I also did a live broadcast and discussed it here. You can see how the bars are shrink wrapped.

How are you planning to package your soap for sale?

Until next time.
