Benefits: Vendors & Suppliers
Vendors and suppliers are the cornerstones of the handcrafted soap and cosmetic industry. Without our industry's vendors and suppliers, soap and cosmetic handcrafters would have a very hard time finding the supplies and materials they need to make and market handcrafted soap and cosmetics. Without soap and cosmetic makers profitably making soap and cosmetics, the businesses of vendors and suppliers would dramatically change.
The HSCG works for vendors and suppliers in two ways - first by supporting and protecting the handcrafted soap and cosmetic industry as a whole through education, legislative advocacy, insurance and more; and second, by providing direct member benefits to vendors and suppliers that are geared toward helping them gain exposure to soap and cosmetic makers.
A Vendor Membership is the in the name of the business and has an individual person connected to the membership as the owner. In addition, a "contact person" can be designated by the owner. If assigned, the contact person gets email and enews updates from HSCG instead of the owner. Both the owner and the contact person have unique log-ins to the HSCG Member Area.
In order to better serve the diverse needs of the vendors and suppliers in the handcrafted soap and cosmetic industry, Vendor memberships are available in three tiers, each with different direct membership benefits and annual dues. This way the business can select the membership tier which is best suited to their business model.
