Mission of Soap has almost zero overhead and we would like as much of our revenue as possible to support our cause. Any donations of material or equipment would be greatly appreciated and would offset most of our cost. The following items are suggested:
These are our primary bulk oils and we could use them in 35-50 lb buckets.
- Coconut Oil
- Palm Oil
- Lard (or Tallow)
- Olive Oil
There are lots of secondary oils and butters that are needed, but in smaller quantities.
- Shea Butter (or Cocoa/Kokum)
- Sweet Almond Oil
- Rice Bran Oil
- Castor Oil
- Tamanu Oil
- Grapeseed Oil
- Jojoba Oil
- Avocado Oil
- Palm Kernel Flakes
These are the primary essential oils that I use, but any are appreciated!
- Lavender 40/42
- Tea Tree
- Orange 5 or 10 Fold
- Grapefruit (or other Citrus)
- Clove Bud
Any fragrance oils are appreciated, but the following are some of our favorites. Prefer a minimum of 4 oz.
- Dragon's Blood
- Fall fragrances such as Pumpkin Spice
- Christmas fragrances
- Apple Pie/Cinnamon
- Ocean scents
- Kid scents such as Bubble Gum
Any clay can be used, but our primary clays are:
- French Green
Specialty Balm Items
We would like to create a high-end line of skin balms and the following specialty oils and essential oils are needed.
Currently we are capable of small batch production, generally 20-40 bars at a time. We would like to scale up to batches 10x that size and will need additional soaping equipment to support that volume.
