The good news?
YOU’RE SEEING RESULTS USING HANDCRAFTED SOAP. BUT NOW LET’S RAISE THE BAR!
If you have tried high-quality handcrafted soap, no one needs to tell you the perks. You’ve already felt the impact of real soap on your skin.
You love the feel of soap that has all the glycerin still in it. You like feeling confident about soap made with wholesome ingredients.
The contrast of using store bought beauty bars versus handcrafted soap needs no explanation. The dry itchy skin that follows use of store-bought bars made a believer out of you. Now that you know what real soap feels like, there is no turning back. Sure, you know artisan soap costs more. But you realize there are hidden costs to industrially produced body bars.
Not quite satisfied
On the other hand, perhaps you have tried handcrafted soaps and felt dissatisfied. The quality wasn’t quite what you expected. Perhaps, it turned to mush. Maybe it produced a slimy lather the consistency of egg whites or had no lather at all. Or, the soap smelled odd or had no smell at all. Still, you did notice some difference on your skin, but are searching for better.
If you’re like me, you pride yourself in being an educated consumer. You want the very best for your skin. You want to make informed choices. Knowing your options is important to you.
So many choices
Let’s face it. The handcrafted soap industry is growing. As a result, there is no shortage of choices. Everywhere you go, you see yet another soap company offering their product for sale. How do you make an informed choice? I am here to share behind-the-scenes information with you, so that you can make the best choice possible when it comes to your skin. More importantly, I want you to know exactly what you get when you choose Bright Hope Soaps.
It’s important to
REALIZE SOAP MAKING IS A LOW ENTRY POINT FIELD.
In short, it costs little to snag a recipe off the internet and make and sell soap. Competition is high and sometimes fierce bordering on ugly. However, that means consumers have a lot of choices when it comes to choosing handcrafted soaps.
But now let’s talk about the elephant in the room. Experience, knowledge base, and skill sets vary from maker to maker. Truly, not all soaps are made the same. There is good, bad, and ugly in that statement.
First, the good.
Not all soaps are made the same. That is good because not all consumers are made the same. Some like animal fats in their soap. Others do not. Some are allergic to tree nuts, some are not. Others can’t tolerate any fragrance. Still, others will not buy it unless it has fragrance, claiming that essential oils do not last. Because not all soaps are made the same, chances are good that you will find a soap to match your preferences.
Now, the bad and ugly, all in one.
Due to soap makers’ inexperience, consumers can get poorly made soap, sometimes even products that cause adverse reactions. Soap requires a carefully balanced formula to perform well. A recipe that contains too much oils will smell rancid. Soap that does not have enough oil will strip your skin drying it out. The type of oils used in the formula impact lather. For example, olive oil produces little lather. If not cured for the proper length of time, the lather resembles egg whites.
One way to screen for this is to chat with the maker. Get to know them and their experience level. Thankfully, many artisans love what they do and care about their customers. They enjoy sharing their knowledge and improving their skill set.

MY THOUGHTS ON OUR SOAP QUALITY
Please know I take quality control very seriously. Indeed, I would love to claim my soap it the best soap on the market. However, that would be wrong for many reasons.
Customers thrive with variety
First, I have already acknowledged customers have diverse preferences. To insist my soap is the best undermines the need for variety in the market place. It places you in a one-size-fits-all box. While I strive to know my customers, I can’t pretend to be a one-size-fits-all soap company.
Excellence = ongoing
Second, my products represent the pursuit of excellence. Still, excellence should never be a fixed point, but a process of constant growth and improvement. Truly, I put my best effort into each product I make. But I strive to add more to my knowledge base thereby adjusting and improving along the way.
Customers help me grow
Finally, I learn via my relationship with customers. We are in this together. Ultimately, I count on customers for their feedback for improvement of products and services. Saying it is the best, implies there is no room for growth. But there is always room for improvement.
