At Natural Resources Australia we know what makes a great soap bar. We have been manufacturing soap bars since 1995 and we are proud to be the contract manufacturer of choice for many International and local Australian Brands that want to include a superior soap bar to their range. We bring together the latest soap bar manufacturing technology and manufacturing practices along with our experienced team to help turn a brands vision into a beautiful high quality finished product.
With over 20 years experience we have led the industry in innovation, sustainability and natural soap bar development. All of our customers have their own unique requirements and formulation. We are flexible to work with your needs and concerns to deliver you the right product for your brand.
We make all our products right here in Australia for you.
All our soap bars are made using the traditional method of French Triple Milling. Quite simply, this process allows the bar to be completely uniform and smooth, without impurities and is longer lasting than other methods. Passing the soap blend through the mills makes sure the soap bar has fragrance and Shea Butter right through to the very last piece.
Handmade by us and using our unique jars, Wavertree and London candles are made with a lot of attention and care. We have developed specific fragrances just for our candles to achieve the highest possible fragrance throw. Once the wax is melted to its optimum temperature we blend in the fragrance and pour into our jars. Only making small batches at a time, we are able to ensure quality of our finished product.
Our diffusers use a non-alcohol base making it safe for travel and your homes. Using specifically made fragrances for diffusers, this ensures you have a subtle fragrant house without being overbearing or underwhelming.
Four Steps of Soap Bar Manufacturing:
2. Refining, homogenising and extrusion
Each bar of soap starts at the batching stage. Our master Batch Makers are responsible for mixing ingredients according to each of our customers formulation specifications. Soap noodles are weighted according to a batch sheet and dispensed into a large mixer. Colours, fragrances and special additives are added at this stage to the batch.
Refining and Extrusion Stage
All of our soap bars pass through a process of triple milled, also known as French milled. Triple Milling of the soap homogenises and compacts all of the ingredients into ribbons of soap that give the soap bar greater lather and longer life. After milling the ribbons pass through the first refiner which is pushed through a mesh screen to further refine the base of any impurities. The soap then passes through a vacuum chamber which extracts air out of the soap to ensure that it is free of air pockets or streaks. In the final extrusion stage, a nose cone heats the soap billet to make it more pliable and perfect for pressing. An extrusion plate dictates the billets shape as it is prepared for the next stage.
Soap billets are cut into a shape that will fit the selected die using a Savoncut servo driven cutter with a high degree of accuracy. Cut billets move along on a conveyor belt as they prepare for the pressing stage.
At this stage a Stampex press compresses two portions of a soap die together, resulting in excess soap being squeezed out through a parting line around the perimeter of the bar. The unique feature of the press is the double stamp action from the internal gears of the soap press giving greater detail to the embossed images and shape of the soap bar. All Stampex pressed bars have parting lines, but they can be a high or mid-parting line, depending on the die used and the desired final result. Stampex presses are highly efficient as excess soap is recycled into the soap extruder and easily reused to make more bars.

Never leave a burning candle unattended.
Never use water to extinguish a candle.
Ensure the wick is upright and centred prior to burning. You should always trim your wick to around 7mm before each burn.
Always burn for a minimum of 1 hour, to avoid ‘tunnelling’ and do not burn your candle for longer than 3 hours.
Never burn a candle when there is only 10mm or less of wax left at the bottom of the candle.
Do not move a burning candle. The wax should be solid prior to moving or holding the candle jar. Never handle a hot candle.
Avoid burning your candle in a drafty area, near open windows and flammable objects.
Keep out of reach of children and animals.
Burn your candle on a heat proof surface only.
