Bulk Bar Soap

When it comes to personal hygiene, there are numerous hand and body wash options such as shower gels, scrubs, bar soaps, liquid washes, and more.

But what is it that customers are genuinely seeking?

In a 2022 poll by Consumer Reports, over half (55%) chose bar soap for their showers.

3 Other Reasons Why You Should Stock It For Your Store

Steady Demand

Bar soap isn’t a newcomer. For decades, it’s been in consistent demand and it is only growing.

Not convinced? Have a look at the Google Trends data that confirms its popularity.

Growing Market

In 2020, 276.2 million Americans opted for bar soap. Experts believe that by 2024 there would be 282.58 million users.

Besides users, its global market is projected to go from $29.16 billion in 2022 to $38.42 billion by 2029.

This means retailers can expect more customers and decent profit margins.

Green Choice

Beyond personal preference, bar soap is kind to the planet.

Packaged mostly in paper or cardboard, it significantly cuts down on plastic waste. It’s a greener alternative to those hard-to-recycle bottles of liquid wash.

So, if you’re someone who:

  • Runs a supermarket, a local grocery store, or a medical store, it’s clear bar soap isn’t just a hygiene product; it’s a consumer’s favorite — often bought in bulk, especially during those grocery shopping trips. And with it, you can expect sustained sales.
  • Manages procurement for places like hospitals, hotels, institutions, offices, beauty salons, gyms, and other such facilities, bulk buying is the way to go. It not only translates to cost savings but also streamlines operations.

Types of Bar Soap

For retailers, knowing the details of what you plan to sell in the store is important. Based on the specific formulation and intended use, there are several types:

Organic bar soap

Made with natural ingredients like natural oils, herbs, and botanicals, it’s a top pick for those who prioritize skin care and sustainability.

Glycerin bar soap

Renowned for its hydration properties, glycerin bar makes a good option for those with dry or sensitive skin.

Goat milk bar soap

Infused with the creamy goodness of goat milk, this gentle cleanser can help the user with moisturized and nourished skin.

Unscented bar soap

Tailored for those with sensitive skin or a preference for fragrance-free products, unscented bar soap offers a pure cleansing experience.

Deodorant bar soap

Made with ingredients that fight off odor-causing bacteria, this soap ensures the user smells nice throughout the day.

So, by stocking various bar soaps, you can cater to diverse customer needs and preferences.

Also, you can consider expanding your offerings to kitchen bars and laundry variants to broaden your business’s appeal.

Legal & Regulatory Compliance in the US

As a retailer or wholesaler, you should be clear about the following regulatory guidelines :

  1. All ‘true soaps,’ primarily made from fats and alkalis and not classified as cosmetics and drugs, fall under the regulation of CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission).
  2. Soaps that are intended for children aged 12 or below must bear a permanent tracking label and they must undergo testing by a CPSC third-party lab for the total lead content.
  3. If a soap has cosmetic or medicinal properties, the FDA sees its regulation.
  4. Furthermore, proper soap labeling is crucial for legal sales in the US and this is governed by the Fair Packaging and Labelling Act (FPLA).

It mandates the below information to be mentioned on the product label:

  • Product name
  • Net weight
  • Name of manufacturer
  • Address of manufacturer/distributor
  • Designation of the soap (whether it’s a true soap or not)
  • Declaration of the ingredients
