Christmas is Coming Sooner Than You Think


It’s the beginning of February and Spring isn’t far away! Yet while most people are thinking of warmer weather and longer days, here at Soapworks we’re thinking about Christmas. 

Christmas 2017 is currently at the forefront of our thoughts as we meet with customers, new and existing, to discuss requirements, ideas and plans for what is still the most important retail period of the year. Planning ahead is vital in manufacturing. Understanding customer requirements as early as possible is the best way to ensure everyone has a great festive period.

Innovation for Christmas is high on our agenda. We have a number of formulations we’ve specifically created with this in mind where we combine the seasonal fragrances and extracts we know will be popular at that time of year. We’re also expert in creating and manufacturing soaps in popular festive shapes and we have an enviable bank of crafted dies available in stock. Utilising one of our existing shapes can help reduce costs and lead times but of course we’re always happy to develop new ones too.

Most of the major retailers are already well on with their plans for Christmas 2017 and we can already see how busy it’s going to be, however, it’s not too late to speak to us if you’re still unsure what you’d like to do. Our team are highly experienced and can talk you through lead times, seasonal ideas and new product development or indeed any other ideas or questions you might have.

The Christmas retail period can be intense and competitive that innovation, quality and a little forward planning are simply essential to ensure success. No team is more capable of helping you achieve this than Soapworks.

In our experience the secret to enjoying great festive soap sales is to plan them in February, at the latest. Let us be the first to wish you a very merry Christmas, when it comes!
