If you make your own body lotion to sell, or just for your own personal use, then most likely you will need to buy your supplies in bulk and find a reliable wholesaler from which you can buy your supplies. If you sell your body lotions, finding a wholesaler that sell the body lotion supplies at a discount could mean more profits for you in the end. If you are new to making body lotion and do not know where to start when searching for a body lotion supply wholesaler, here is an easy way to get started.
- Skill level:
Buy wholesale supplies on the Internet. There are many wholesale companies on the Internet that specialise in selling soap-making and lotion-making supplies. One great company is Brambleberry. They sell bulk supplies such as beeswax, speciality oils, essential oils, equipment and bottling supplies to enable you to make any type of body lotion you want. See the resources below for the link to Brambleberry's website.
Contact local businesspeople. Check to see if you may have a beekeeper or oil maker in your area. Beeswax olive oil and coconut oil are often used to make the best homemade body lotions and can be pricey. If you find a local supplier, they will usually give you a discount and there will be no shipping costs, saving you money in your upfront costs. Ask around at a farmers market; you would be surprised how many supplies you can find locally.
Ask your health food store. Many times if a health food store or food cooperative knows that you want to buy a product in bulk, they will help you out by giving you a discount or letting you buy your supplies at cost. This is because when they order their own supplies, they need to meet a certain minimum order amount. If you are buying bulk body lotion making supplies, it will help them to meet their minimum order amount.
