After two long years of trying a million different packaging types, I think I finally decided on paper wrapping. They look so simple yet elegant. I watched a bunch of videos and have narrowed it down to one or two styles of wrapping the soap. But none of the creators on any of the videos gave a hint to what they use.

One simply said wax paper. Well I have wax paper, and it doesn't look nice like hers, and of course when you fold it up, it looks all crinkly. Do you think its actually butcher paper or freezer paper? I mean regular wax paper is brown and thin and see-through.

The other video I watched just kept saying paper. I don't know if she means regular paper, or a certain weight paper or what.

What would you recommend for this style of wrapping soaps? I am done with the shrink wrap. Its expensive, time consuming, and I am just plain bad at it.

My biggest hinderance for selling soap has always been packaging. I think I finally found it, but not sure what material to use.

I’m curious what others will post in reply to this. I am no expert and only wrap 10-30 bars at a time, so my Kraft paper process is manageable and looks appealing to me. I watched a bunch of videos and landed that this must be what some of them were using. I’ve been getting 8.5x11 normal weight Kraft paper and cutting it to size. I get 6 tall skinny bars per page, but wrapping my normal loaf only gets 4 bars with some paper waste.
