Our Customers Say...
Lotioncrafter has been and continues to be one of the most efficiently run and dependable soap and lotion ingredient companies I purchase from. Even shipping from Washington State to Texas, I know my order will be processed promptly and correctly and will arrive within a week of being placed (many times within a couple of days!). Kudos to Jenny and her staff! Caroline Lawson, TLC Farms, Franklin, TX

I've ordered from Lotioncrafters twice and I have to say, I am impressed at how fast they get your product out to you. As long as they continue to give this type of service, I will continue to be a loyal customer.

Thanks a bunch LC!!!
Jen

I just wanted to say that from my very first time ordering from lotioncrafter in 2014 & now 2016 this company has been consistently amazing. I have never had an issue with anything at all. Every order is shipped promptly (without paying ridiculous fee) ingredient information is readily available (not hidden), quality is unquestionable, and should you need to contact someone you will get a response immediately ...only thing I could cry about is I wish they carried serecite, pigments, sci, smc taurate, ... etc so I could only order from them...which is unreasonable on my part. Truly a reputable high quality supplier

I've just received my third order from Lotioncrafter. Once again, my order was received within days. I could not be more pleased with the quality of their products and the ease of their ordering process. Let me tell, their L-Ascorbic Acid Ultrafine powder is just PHENOMENAL !!! Two other products I am so impressed with are Rosehip Seed Oil & Sea Buckthorn Berry Oil. Top notch quality!! This is my #1 to go place for my diy products.

Thank you
