I love making CP soaps. Right now, and in the forseeable future, I'm interested in soap- just soap. I guess I'm thinking along the lines of 'do one thing and do it well'. Is it "wrong" to not want to make lotions and lotion bars and lip balms and scrubs, and all that other bath and body stuff?

For those of you that just do soap, do you ever get people asking if you make other stuff as well, and then are disapointed when you say no?
I'm just not sure I want a bath and body thing, just a soap thing. I know this is utterly silly, but I guess I'm just looking for validation that "just" doing soap is "okay"

DOING JUST SOAP IS FINE!

(sorry for yelling)

It's your business. You can make it anything you want.

I've seen a few folks on here who had spread out into other B&B and made the decision to move to only one product because the other just wasn't as fun or rewarding.

Chinese restaurants sell only chinese food.
No reason you can't sell only soap.

... you know it's funny that you mention Chinese Food. I know fortune cookies are generic and the fortunes are "for entertainment purposes only". But did you ever get a really good one?
I got one a few months ago when I was contemplating doing a soap business in the future. I kept it. No joke, this is what it said,

"You are capable of building a new thriving business venture."

Ha! So that's page one of my business plan - a generic fortune from some unknown company. Hell, I'll take it.


I've tried making body powders and bath oils, and it just wasn't was fun....

I think I'll stick with 'do one thing and do it well'

Want to hear something else that was spooky?

I did a street fair about four years ago. The stall was directly in front of where my store is now.

What's wrong with making only soap? Besides, it's not "only" soap. There is a lot involved--scented or not, characteristics of particular oils, herbs and colors--it goes on and on.
