Who are we?
We are not anonymous! You can speak to us, email us or visit our office to sniff fragrances or collect your order if you are in Perth. We run an exciting and challenging business with you, our customers, in mind - constantly evaluating new ingredients and working on new formulas. We have an amazing crew of Elves who support us, and they do their best every day!
Aussie Soap Supplies® grew out of our soap business, Yggdrasil’s Hand Made Soap, a small business venture begun in 2001 that blossomed from our love of soap making. We have been making our soap for over 25 years now – that’s a lot of soap! With this experience we started teaching and helping others, and so Aussie Soap Supplies was born. Our love of herbs and using natural ingredients, led us on further and further, until we reached the point we are today – stockists of Australia’s widest range of Soap, Spa and Lotion making products.
We are a family owned and run, Western Australian business that specialises in supplying quality Soap, Shampoo and Moisturiser Ingredients, Bramble Berry Fragrances, cosmetic grade colours, soap moulds and unique packaging to crafters and small business.
We are proudly the sole Authorised distributor for Bramble Berry Fragrances and selected Bramble Berry product lines. These fabulous, specialty Fragrances will stick in your soap and bath products, smell amazing, are ALL totally skin safe, test in soap and only available in Australia from us.
At the heart of our business is our passion for the creation of Hand Made Soap and Bath Products full of great quality, naturally sourced ingredients, high quality fragrance and colours, and as creative as we can make them! We still formulate our own products from scratch, and have released three books to help new crafters get started. We actually USE the ingredients we sell, and formulate with enthusiasm and curiosity, so we have first hand experience. This is why we are able to supply recipes, formulas and information on our ingredients and supplies, unlike some companies who just "sell the goods."
We pride ourselves on being an ethical business in all ways possible. We have developed an honest and open relationship with our suppliers and growers, and appreciate the pride and care with which they produce their goods. Product Quality and Customer Service will always come first for us.
To the best of our knowledge, we do not stock any products currently tested on animals, all are either natural, vegetable derived, or safe synthetics. We are a Vegetarian/Vegan Friendly business.
Aussie Soap Supplies® is located in Kardinya, Western Australia, not far from the port of Fremantle. and you can contact us via telephone or email on our Contact Us page. Our phones do get really busy, Sharyn and Ashleigh are there to help if needed.
Jude was thrilled to have the opportunity in August 2010 of visiting Bramble Berry in the USA and teaching Beginners and Advanced Cold Processed Soapmaking at the Otion Soap Weekend Intensive. Here's the low down on her trip, as requested! We've put together a page with some photo's, info and pictures on Jude's visit to Bramble Berry!
Why Bramble Berry?
Even before establishing Aussie Soap Supplies, we had been long time customers of Bramble Berry Inc, importing their fabulous fragrances for our soap and bath products. We spent a lot of wasted time and ruined batches of soap in testing so many unsuitable fragrances for Cold Processed Soap.
We had the pleasure of being accepted as Bramble Berry's first International Distributor in 2002.
The main reason for choosing an alliance with Bramble Berry are their quality, dependable products and outstanding customer service, as well as the fact they are leaders in the field of soap making fragrances. Bramble Berry produce completely dependable fragrances, with a full description of their characteristics and usage tips.
After nearly a decade of frustration and finding our retail customers were demanding the sophisticated soap fragrances they could purchase overseas, we decided to link up with Bramble Berry, whose reliable and delicious fragrances we had been using for a long time in our own retail soaps.
Both Bramble Berry and ourselves are committed to personally testing all our Fragrance Oils. Bramble Berry have two independent tests for each fragrance (so a total of 3 tests prior to making it to their shelves). Less than .05% of all fragrances Bramble Berry test make it to their catalogue. If you use one of our Fragrances and cannot get it to work in your recipe, we'd like to hear about it so we can work with you to ensure a successful soap on the next batch!
