12. Where are Sudsy Bear’s products made?
Starting July 2021, in an effort to keep up with demand and to avoid long delays in the supply chain caused by COVID and due in-part to tremendous growth for our company, we partnered with a 3rd party to contract manufacture some of our most popular soaps. We supply 100% of the organic/all natural ingredients to our manufacturing partner and the recipes, processes and quality are all uniformly identical and unique to our company. As we continue to expand our facilities and in-house capacities we will eliminate the need for further contract manufacturing.
But, I thought Sudsy Bear made all their products? Well, we do! We make every single product in our R&D lab prior to production. This allows us to nail the formulations to perfection before manufacturing begins. Once manufacturing is complete, all soaps are cut, cured and packaged in-house. Every company that experiences amazing success will eventually have a hard decision to make. Do we remain a small company and maintain the "homemade' adage for our products or do we want to scale the company to far greater heights than we ever could as a one or two man/woman show? We chose the latter and it's been the best decision we've ever made!
13. Are Sudsy Bear products cruelty-free?
Yes, all of our products are made with sustainably sourced and cruelty-free natural and/or organic ingredients.
14. How long does Sudsy Bear soap bars last?
Longevity is highly variable with organic soaps, but the average response we get from customers is 3-4 weeks for our 5-5.5oz bars and 4-5 weeks for our 6.25-6.50oz bars.
15. Does Sudsy Bear offer samples?
We do offer samples for customers who place an order, but want to try a soap or two before buying. Simply use the text box “Order Note” on the checkout page and let us know the samples you would like to try and we’ll be happy to include them with your order.
16. Is Sudsy be the greatest natural soap company on the planet?
Yes, we think so..
