The HSMG is a non-profit trade association. As such, it is our goal and job to assist those in the industry to expand their own endeavors and thereby expand the industry as a whole. When public awareness about handcrafted soap is increased, there are more sales. When more soap is purchased, the soapmakers do well, and purchase from the vendors. When the vendors have more business, they can get better prices from their suppliers. So the soapmakers can get better deals, and lower their costs. So they can offer more and better products to the consumers, which leads the consumers to purchase more soap … and so the cycle goes.
The HSMG’s mandate is: To promote the handcrafted soap industry; to act as a center of communication among soap makers; and to circulate information beneficial to soapmakers..
