RealSoap is a moderated team with the following requirements:

RealSoap is a moderated team with the following requirements:

1. You must make the soap yourself. This can be CP, HP, M&P, and all variations in between. You may use bases for your other products but cannot claim to have developed the recipe for those bases.
2. All applicants must have an active shop for no less than 60 days. However, we prefer your shop be open at least 6 months.
3. You should have at least 5 variations of soaps listed in your shop. We also request that you have at least 50 items for sale and commit to keeping your shop fully stocked. Team leadership reserves the right to delete members or deny applicants for this reason.
4. When applying, please be ready to provide photos of your workspace, you creating your soap and/or your supply closet. Photos should include a business card, label, or some other identifiable image to prevent images from being taken randomly from the web. If you have a longstanding blog, Facebook page or flicker account with photos of your process, those links may suffice and feel free to supply them.
5. One of the team leaders may convo you with other questions that pertains to your craft. Please answer completely. We ask because we care.
6. This team is to promote handmade by all members. Members who consistently and continually post 'general access' promo threads will be warned. Continual abuse can result in removal from the team. There are promotion teams where one can promote, this is not that type of team.

Team membership is handled by our leaders (the captain offers suggestions and has final veto power). If you do not meet these requirements then your membership may be declined.

This team promotes handmade soap makers ONLY and was created to combat the resellers who buy soap elsewhere and put their own label on it. If you suspect that someone is a reseller and not a creator, please let us know. Thanks!

If we find that someone has misrepresented themselves, they will be removed from the team. This will be a juried process and will be dealt with in a quiet professional manner. We're not here to damage anyone's business, but to enhance all reputable soapmakers.
