Delight Customers in an Unexpected Way
Made from organic ingredients, our handcrafted soaps are super mild and moisturizing and customers love the subtle essential oil scents. Foaming soaps are concentrated and a little goes a long way, making them extremely cost effective. Using our wall mounted dispensers, a single gallon will provide thousands of servings. No more throwing away empty (non-recyclable) plastic soap bags or daily refilling dispensers - your refill interval will be measured in weeks, not days, reducing hassle and labor. Packaged in refillable and recyclable polyethylene jugs (Bring them back, we will refill them!)
Our commercial customers receive a 12% discount from retail pricing as well as FREE shipping or delivery.

Yes, you can order gallons or half-gallons of bulk soap directly on our web site but if you do then you miss out on significant cost savings and other benefits.
1) With the discounted commercial price plus free shipping or delivery, our commercial customers save close to 20% off the retail price! 2) For commercial customers, we have flexibility to set up multiple modes of invoicing (hardcopy, multiple emails) and payment (check on delivery, CC on line, CC on file, bank check, ACH, etc) to accommodate the particular needs of your business. 2) Because we sell them at our cost, we do not offer our wall-mounted dispensers online.
It depends if they are designed for foaming or regular liquid soap and whether or not they require a proprietary bag or bottle.
The main criteria is that the dispensers are bulkfoaming dispensers. In other words, they do not require a proprietary bag of soap (with built-in nozzle), but have an open reservoir or tank that our soap can be poured into. Most foaming dispensers available from companies like Cintas, Ecolab or Gojo utilize a proprietary plastic bag or bottle that only fits in their machine so you have to buy their soap. Each bag include a built in foaming pump mechanism that gets thrown away when the bag is tossed out. So if you have proprietary dispensers you will need to replace them.
Our foaming dispensers are very economical, good looking, reliable and don't drip. You can always see the fluid level so you will know when to refill it. Installation is straightforward requiring just 2 appropriate wall anchors (not double sided adhesive) to attach the mounting plate to the wall. The dispenser slides onto the plate and snaps into place. This allows easy replacement if it is damaged, or it can be easily removed to clean in the sink or to paint around it. If you are local to Columbus, we can provide professional installation, which includes removal of your old dispensers.

We sell 2 sizes of manual foaming dispensers, both are available in either gray and white.
Each small dispenser holds 30oz when full so you can fill 4 dispensers per gallon. The small size are quite compact and fit into tighter spaces. And, they provide up to 1,000 servings per filling so they last quite a long time before needing to be refilled so there is little chance you would run out during a busy event.
Our large dispenser hold up to 46oz when full so you can fill 3 dispensers per gallon. The large dispenser has the ability to be locked, but most businesses ask us to remove the lock for easy access. The key is just a small pin that gets inserted into the side of the lid to release the mechanism.
Each dispenser comes with our label that lets your customers and staff know that you are serving a handcrafted product made from organic ingredients and essential oils.
If you are located in the metropolitan Columbus area, we can provide professional installation if needed, typically $20 each for standard sheetrock or similar installation, or $30 each if on tile or other more complex installation. Our installation service includes removal of old dispensers (and foam tape), which is often the most difficult part!
However installation is straightforward and simple for someone on your team to do. There is a wall bracket that mounts with 2 screws (don’t use double sided adhesive), the dispenser slides down onto the bracket and snaps into place. It can be easily removed for cleaning, painting, etc.
If you are outside of Columbus, ordering a couple different bottles to sample is a good way to give your team a chance to test the soaps and pick a favorite scent. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to contact us for advice.
