Ever wondered what goes on behind the soapy scenes here at The Cosy Cottage Soap Company? From making soaps to a stop at our favourite sandwich shop, wonder no more as we take you with us on a typical day here at HQ.
9am: Packaging orders
We kickstart each day by packing up the orders from the previous day. Here is a photo of the lovely Kate checking off all the orders in the Cosy Cottage Office. Every single order is beautifully gift wrapped making them the perfect present. Visit the online store here.
10am: To the post office!
After packing all the orders we take the parcels down to the local Post Office. The staff are so friendly and we now stock our additive-free products in their store. Heslington sits on the outskirts of York and is just a 5 minute walk away from our office and lab at the York Science Park. You can't keep us away from it; we will be back here at lunchtime.
11am: Making creams and balms
Lunchtime means we are off back to Heslington. This time it's to visit a local gem, Browns. The sign outside their door reads "BROWNS FOR PROBABLY THE BEST SANDWICH IN THE WORLD" and they can't be too far wrong. We definitely recommend it (just leave some sandwiches for us)!
1pm: Wholesale meetings and delivering stock
Next up we are meeting new retailers and delivering fresh stock to our repeat wholesalers. Our list of retailers is ever-growing with our latest addition being the National Trust properties Nunnington Hall and Nostell Priory. Our full list of stockists can be viewed here.
