What Are Twincraft Skincare's MOQs?

Wayne LaBonte, Twincraft Skincare's VP of Sales & Marketing, explains the minimum amounts that we advise our customers to order from us in bar soap, skincare, and deodorant.

So, what are your minimum order quantities?

This is by far the most frequently asked question by potential new customers who want to work with Twincraft as their contract manufacturer. Today we attempt to directly answer a question that, on its surface, begs an easy answer. In truth, the answer to this question is nuanced, and like so many things at Twincraft, the answer simply depends on the circumstances. We’ll dive into the nuance separately, but for now, let’s just jump straight to our most common answers.

 

Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ) refers to the smallest amount of product or units that a supplier is willing to produce at once.

 

MOQs for Bar Soap:

  • 10,000 pieces for stock soap bases
  • Custom order bases require 8 metric ton increments, which, when divided by the label weight equates to the MOQ
    • Example: 8MT would yield ~56,000 5 oz bars

MOQs for Deodorants & Hot-Pour Solids:

  • 1,000 kg of bulk
    • The number of finished good units can vary depending on your fill size
    • Example: For a typical oval deodorant stick at 2.65oz of useable product, this equates to 12,500 pieces
    • Packaging choices may influence the MOQ if the MOQ for pack components is higher

MOQs for Emulsions, Liquid Cleansers, Masks, and Other Skin Care Products:

  • 1,000 kg of bulk
  • The number of finished good units can vary depending on your fill size
  • Example: For a typical 8oz Body Wash, this equates to roughly 4,400 units
  • Packaging choices may influence the MOQ if the MOQ for pack components is higher

The MOQ’s listed above are intended to be illustrative and helpful, but in a vacuum, these numbers are not a replacement for a consultation with one of our salespeople. MOQs do not reflect economies of scale and they are almost certainly not the most economical order quantity (EOQ) one could purchase. Please reach out to us with questions about your situation and to see if we’re a good fit for one another.
