"BuT I cAN GeT SoAp FOr 50p in B&M?!"

Is handmade soap worth the cost?

We hear ya. Our soaps range from £2.50 to £4.95 and while we know they're fantastic value for money you might wonder if paying that little extra is really worth the hype.

Over-looking the fact you're supporting a fantastic small biz when buying from us because all our soaps are from indie businesses, you might still be puzzled.

When comparing the cost of eco-friendly vegan soap to mass-produced soap, it's essential to consider several factors. The specific pricing can vary depending on the brand, location, and other factors, but we can provide a general comparison.

Eco-Friendly Vegan Soap: Eco-friendly vegan soaps are typically made from natural, plant-based ingredients and are produced using sustainable practices. They often avoid the use of harsh chemicals, synthetic fragrances, and animal-derived ingredients. While the initial cost may be higher compared to mass-produced soaps, there are a few aspects that can contribute to long-term savings:

⚡️ Quality and Concentration:Eco-friendly vegan soaps often contain high-quality ingredients that provide better nourishment and hydration for the skin. They are also usually more concentrated, meaning you need less soap per use, resulting in a longer-lasting product.

⚡️ Reduced Environmental Impact: By choosing eco-friendly vegan soap, you support brands that prioritize sustainable sourcing, manufacturing, and packaging. These practices can help reduce environmental harm and promote a healthier planet.

Mass-Produced Soap: Mass-produced soaps are typically commercially manufactured using conventional methods. They may contain synthetic ingredients, artificial fragrances, and potentially harmful chemicals. Mass-produced soaps are often more affordable in terms of upfront cost, but there are a few aspects to consider:

⚡️ Lower Quality Ingredients: Mass-produced soaps may contain lower-quality ingredients that are less beneficial for your skin. They may also include additives that can cause dryness, irritation, or other adverse effects.

⚡️ Higher Consumption: Due to lower quality and concentration, mass-produced soaps may require more product per use to achieve the desired lather and cleansing effect. This can result in faster product depletion and more frequent repurchases.

So, yeah, eco-friendly vegan soaps may have a slightly higher upfront cost per unit compared to mass-produced soaps. However, their higher quality, concentration, and longer-lasting nature can result in overall cost savings in the long run.

It's worth noting that eco-friendly vegan soap brands are becoming more accessible and competitively priced due to increasing demand and market competition. Additionally, buying in bulk can further reduce the cost per unit. For example, our multi-boxes from Friendly Soap.

So, while eco-friendly vegan soaps may have a higher upfront cost compared to mass-produced soaps, their superior quality, concentration, and longer-lasting nature can provide cost savings in the long term. Moreover, by choosing eco-friendly options, you contribute to a healthier environment and support sustainable practices in the soap industry.
