Bar Soap Contract Manufacturing

M Bedforth & Sons, a wholly owned trading division of John Drury, is a leading UK private label bar soap contract manufacturing or private label manufacturer for the bar and liquid soap industry. Our manufacturing facilities include a 20,000 square foot factory in West Yorkshire, England.

We have many personal care formulas that are ready to go and apply with your own brand and label and ship directly to your customer / retailer or to your warehousing facilities. If you prefer, we can assist with the packaging and label design and to ensure that your finished product stands out on shelf. These are commonly labelled as shower gels, cream washes, body washes and body scrubs.

If you would like something all-natural, we can also assist. The all-natural personal care market is growing for customers that are conscious of the ingredient sources. M Bedforths can help create your perfect all-natural private label liquid soap.

Once the formulation, the packaging, and the product development costs are approved, we will undergo testing of the product. Stability testing and safety assessments are compulsory for solid and liquid soaps. Stability tests ensure that the formulation remains stable under different physical conditions (temperature and light exposure), and safety assessments ensure the product is safe for consumer use. Liquids contain water and also require a microbiological testing, to make sure the product does become contaminated.

M Bedforth has production capacity and equipment to manufacture for the various volume orders. Current customers range from the major international retailers and wholesalers to the gift-trade market.

Our soap plant is equipped with two finishing bar soap lines suitable for manufacturing bespoke bars to customer specifications. One line has been automated for high-speed manufacture of 3 and 4 packed bars of soaps. Standard moulds for various bar shapes and sizes are available while new moulds can be commissioned upon request. Our minimum order quantity to effectively produce your product is 1,000 kilos (1 tonne).
