We have all heard the saying " you get what you pay for " and it is certainly true. Bath bombs have exploded with popularity in 2016/2017. In doing so the market for wholesale bath bomb suppliers have become saturated and very competitive. Marketers hired from these up and coming companies will say anything to get a sale as well as undercut other companies. What you as the consumer need to understand is that a majority of the time this significant price reduction comes at a COST! What is the cost or the "catch" you may ask yourself. Here are a 5 things you need to ask yourself when looking for a bath bomb supplier.
A majority of the time there will be no FREE shipping offered! And the cost of shipping will actually go UP not down the larger the order is. If the manufacturer or distributor is over seas there will be importing cost as well as added time for you to receive your products due to regulations and customs approval that is needed.
Sacrificing your ability to scale your small business due to a lack of employees or resources. A majority of the time these new companies are small home based companies and do not have dedicated staff to pack, deal with customer service or manufacture. Over seas manufactures typically in China that sacrifice quality for speed & cost. Not to mention time difference and language barriers.
3). SIZE DOES MATTER!
Make sure you take a look at the bath bomb size. You will see that 75% of bath bombs on the market are all 2.5 oz or (golf ball size) Can you really compare apples to apples? or should I say apples to grapes. All of our bath bombs are 4.5 oz (tennis ball size)
4). Private Labeling
This is very important to small businesses as well as for start ups. Ray Silverstein of Entrepreneur Magazine wrote an article on working on your company V.S working in your company. With that being said do you have to create labels, print them out, cut them then apply them to the bath bomb after you purchase them? Or does the company offer Private labeling? We assist with label design as well as offer private labeling for our customers FREE of charge. This enables our customers to wear one less hat and focus on growing their small business!
Would you go to a Dr that didn't have a degree? Didn't think so. One of the things that is key in the bath and beauty industry is consistency. Over the last decade our team has perfected our formula for bath bombs. A lot of people may think you mix baking soda with citric acid, add fragrance, color and wala you have a bath bomb. But there are multiple factors that people ignore that we have learned through trial and error. Most importantly checking and perfecting the ratio of liquid to powder to achieve consistency that is spot on.
With all that being said you get what you pay for and some times paying $1.49 for bath bombs beats paying .99 . You want residual business that naturally refers your company and boast of your products quality.
