Welcome the Official Bath & Beauty Supplier list! I've gone through and streamlined the list so it's a little easier to find information. We are always looking for new suppliers, so please keep adding as you find them!

Also, please note that ALL of the suppliers on this list are verified (no fly-by-nighters) and have been used by your fellow Craftsters. We only post suppliers from whom we've not heard any complaints or bad information. Enjoy!


Save on shipping! Use this website to find suppliers in your State!
Suppliers by State

General Suppliers
These suppliers stock everything from bases to oils to colorants to FOs/EOs, to molds. They carry anything and everything you could ever want for B&B -- these are what we consider to be one-stop shopping!

Bramble Berry
Wholesale Supplies Plus
The Chemistry Store
Majestic Mountain Sage
From Nature with Love
Southern Soapers

Soap Mold Suppliers
These are suppliers who specialize specifically in molds

For Crafts Sake
Upland Soap Factory
Kelsei's Creations
Milky Way Molds

Fragrance/Essential Oil Suppliers
These suppliers tend to specialize strictly in FOs/EOs, though many have other items, too. Smiley

Southern Garden Scents
The Scent Shack
Sweet Cakes
Appalachian Valley Naturals
Scent Works
Rustic Escentuals
WFMed
Nature's Garden Candles
Bittercreek North Candle Supply
(with these last two suppliers, double-check that you are buying a soap scent and not a candle scent. Smiley)

MP Soap Base Suppliers
These suppliers specialize mostly in MP bases.

Lonestar Candle Supply
Melt & Pour Supplies

Other Base Suppliers (Lotion Base, Bubble Bath Base, etc).

Essential Wholesale

Packaging Suppliers

Specialty Bottle
Elements Bath & Body
