Packaging Your Soapy Creations

Handmade packaged soaps by Nikki Hoefer

Are you in need of some soap packaging ideas?

You've made your lovely soaps and now they sit there....naked....bare for all the world to see! What next? Should they be elaborately dressed in silk and all manor of things elegant? Or would a modest look be more appropriate?

With the vast array of packaging and wrapping options available, you shouldn't have any trouble finding some great soap packaging ideas. The only trouble will be trying to decide which one to use.

Packaging your soaps can accomplish many things.

If you plan on selling your soaps, labels provide an area for listing ingredients and displaying information about your product and company.

Many countries either require this to be done already or are heading in that direction.

For more information visit Health Canada or US Food and Drug Administration.

Even if you just give away your soaps, it's not a bad idea to list the ingredients...you never know what people are allergic to.

Your soap packaging can also help to create an overall look or 'brand' for your products making them instantly recognizable as yours.

Wrappings keep the soaps clean and can help to protect them from deterioration due to environmental elements.

And my favorite reason for wrapping up soaps....it looks great and can be such fun to do! Visit my new Packaging Ideas page on Soap Making Essentials to see some great packaging ideas you could use for wrapping up your soapy treasures.
