Shaving Soap Test Batches

There at least 3 levels of soap test batches.  Shaving soap is very different from hand/body soap due to the process.  Shaving soap is made via the Modified Hot Process and uses both sodium hydroxide and potassium hydroxide…and lots of hard butters and oils.  Long story short, we have more options for shapes and containers.

The first level is a simple example of what your soap is going to look and smell like along with the base oils and butters you have requested.

  • The cost for 1 test batch starts at $70 and this includes shipping in the lower 48 states.

The second level includes;

  • The First Level
  • 50 oz of soap
  • Using containers and/or silicon molds.
  • The containers can be the final packaging option or the opportunity for you to test out different containers to see which one looks and works the best.
  • Shaving soap is the only product we make, where we can use silicon molds, because the soap hardens quickly and can be removed within a few minutes.
  • The cost is at least $90 and could run into the hundreds of dollars.  Every situation is unique.
