Unfortunately I have never made M&P so can't comment on those products, but I've bought from Gracefruit, Just a soap and soap kitchen. They're all reputable companies. The only thing I find is that the postage is so expensive. I usually try and save up to do a large order. You could also try Soapmakers-store.com. The other companies ISG suggested look just as reputable, I just haven't ordered from them. Mysticmoments.com has free postage but the products often cost more.

I don't use it myself, but lots of people speak very highly of hfoster for larger quantities http://www.hfostersoaponline.co.uk for smaller quantities then any of the soap suppliers will do. Grace fruit, soap kitchen, soaposh, just a soap....
