Our Company

The Soap Barn Co.Since 1996, our Michigan based company has been growing our business and brand as a recognized, reputable soap making supply company.  We serve and cater to the home hobbyist and small business owner. Our concentration is on quality products, fair prices and exceptional customer service.  We sell raw materials for soap making and natural skin care products with an emphasis on natural and chemical-free.  We offer classes that are comprehensive, covering all phases of cold-process soap making from handling sodium hydroxide to the finished product.  We warmly invite you to stroll through our site and see what we have to offer.



Sodium HydroxideWe carry both Sodium Hydroxide and Potassium Hydroxide. Both products must ship via ground service and can not go by air; we do ship to Hawaii and Alaska. Please be aware of the differences between the two products when ordering.  Sodium Hydroxide is for making bar soap and Potassium Hydroxide is used when making liquid soap.



Orders & Shipping

Reuse Reduce RecycleAll orders placed before 2 O’clock EST will be shipped same day. If an item is out-of-stock, we do not back order. We will contact you and let you know when the item will be back on our shelves and see if you would like us to hold the order until complete.  If we do not receive a response within 24 hours, we will ship complete minus the out-of-stock item and refund the difference.   We recycle many boxes and packaging.  Many boxes come from local grocery stores and the majority of our packing we use inside our orders comes from a local print shop which supplies us with their end rolls of paper.  So if your order arrives in a gently used box, know it’s our way of contributing to a healthier environment.



We offer classes January through October.  Our classes are complete and comprehensive on Cold Process Soap Making.  The class size is always limited to allow for individual attention towards each student, early registration is always recommended.  As class dates and times become available, they will be posted on our website.  If you have an interest in our classes and do not see a class posted, go to our contact form and let us know to add your name to the early notification list.  As dates become available, you will be notified before we post our schedule to give you a chance at early registration.
