Soap Business Boot Camp GOLD - The Soap Coach

Soap Business Boot Camp GOLD

The Gold Package gives you all of the following PLUS a 1 hour Zoom with me to be taken within 6 months of purchase. (UK ONLY)

Most resources out there tell you what you need to do but with no help about exactly HOW to do it all. This course shows you exactly how to do it all as well as busts some myths along the way. 

PART 1 Step by step modules with videos and tools to follow that will enable you to set your business up for growth later down the line.


  1. Nailing your niche and some tools to help you look at your existing knowledge and skills to decide where yours will sit. Also, a worksheet to brainstorm your ideal customer.
  2. Branding that will be aligned with your chosen niche and tools to help you decide on yours (with input on how to use Canva for that with a Brand Board template and creating basic business cards/flyers etc)
  3. Products and choosing yours to align with your niche. PLUS 3 AMAZING DISCOUNTED ASSESSMENT BUNDLES FROM MAF Cosmetics WHICH POTENTIALLY CAN SAVE YOU HUNDREDS OF £££ - watch the sneak peek video for details on those.
  4. Packaging - what to consider and ideas around what options are available. Canva template for soap cigar band labels and a video showing how to make it unique to you
  5. Pricing - What to consider when deciding on price (with the emphasis on being able to supply stockists too. WIth the spreadsheets for working out your costs and managing your inventory.
  6. Social media - what the options are and choosing which ones are right for you depending on your niche and ideal customer. Includes 50 templates for IG and FB. (Please note - It does not talk you through how to use social media - that changes practically month on month with new features being added. I do not recommend relying too much on social media alone. The strategy the boot camp is based on will set you up to then grow through wholesale/stockists and growing your own audience with an email list which is much more stable and profitable than social media (those are covered in the Soap Suite but you need to have all this ground work in place to maximise the benefits of those)
  7. Where to sell your products whether that be in person, via a platform such as Etsy, own website or wholesale with discussions around all those, cost comparisons, and suggestions.
  8. Introduction to SEO, what it is, and how to get the basics in place. My own businesses are based on SEO which is far more reliable long term than social media.
There is also a chapter on trademarking and how to do it. It doesn't really fall into any of the above but I feel it is really important to do.

PART 2 Step by step modules with how to videos and tools to follow

  • Obtain cosmetic assessments.
  • Upload your soaps to the UK cosmetic portal 
  • Create a Product Information File, what to include ( and what is not necessary) and how to organise it plus a template to help with this
  • Create a Good Manufacturing Practice Document with a template that you can amend to suit your own business
  • Labelling - what is needed, how to lay it out, a demo on how to design your own in Canva, 
  • Allergens - what you need to include,  detailed examples of how to calculate them plus a nifty spreadsheet to help with the maths.
  • Dog and Pet Products - what is required under CLP legislation. (It does not tell you what you need to put on your labels as each product will vary depending on the ingredients and you will need to take advise from a company who offers CLP authoring)

STEP BY STEP VIDEO INSTRUCTION ON EXACTLY HOW TO DO ALL THE ABOVE WITH DOCUMENT TEMPLATES WHERE RELEVANT- a game changer for getting it all done with the least stress and confusion. All videos are also available in a captioned format meaning the entire course is also perfect for the deaf or hard of hearing community. 

    Watch the Sneak Peek video.  (this is for the silver and gold course, the bronze does not have all the business set up chapters, only the legislation compliance.)

    PLUS access to a dedicated Facebook support group - fair use policy applies and I am unable to offer personal coaching, mentoring or business planning within the group but general questions,  support, advice, and discussions are actively encouraged.

    Who is it NOT for?

    Anyone not in the UK. The rules around selling soap vary so much from country to country. Whilst the legislation we are governed by also applies to the EU I am also well aware that some EU countries have additional requirements such as manufacturing space away from domestic kitchens and I am not able to comment on these.

    This Soap Business Boot Camp is not for beginner makers, I have other courses for learning to make products and it is not covered in this course at all. There is an expectation that you are a competent maker and ready to step it up to the next level.

    What The Soap Business Boot Camp Bronze DOES do is shortcut the length of time it will take to get the legal aspects of your business done. No Google rabbit holes. Just clear instructions. You will still have to put the work in, I cannot do that for you and there will be days when you feel you are taking 1 step forward and 2 back. Starting any business is always a challenge but it is all doable.

    Please note this is an online , work at your own speed, course with no live element. There is support in an associated facebook group however. 

    Upon purchase you will receive an email with a link to log in to the platform the course is hosted on.
