Welcome. It will depend on where you live. Unfortunately, getting everything from one place is likely not going to happen.

Might want to start here and check it out.

Welcome! As Shunt alluded, you will probably have to choose between best prices and 1-stop-shop. Also, there's a thin line between best prices and unacceptable risk of poor quality, and that line is in a different place for everyone. I comparison shopped for weeks before purchasing anything. Good luck!

Hi, are you in Doncaster, UK? Then try the Soap Kitchen for a one shop stop.

You're in the UK so first things first, you'll want to read up on the requirements for soap making and selling in the UK/EU; I added the EU since the laws still apply. You'll need to be licensed, your recipes will need to be 'assessed' which includes your base recipe, colorants and scents.

Go to YouTube and look up "I Dream In Soap", "Future Primitive Soap" and "Edens Secrets 1"...these UK ladies often list where they purchase their supplies and equipment in their videos and in the descriptions of their videos.

I'm in the US...I purchase my Olive, Avocado and Coconut Oils from Costco; Cocoa, Shea, Mango and Kokum Butters from Shay and Company, plus Sodium Lactate, Castor Oil and Sodium Hydroxide. Colorants (micas, pigments, clays, etc) and Scents (fragrance and essential oils) I purchase from multiply supplies like BrambleBerry, Elements Bath & Body, Rustic Escentuals, BeScented, and Nurture Soap.

While most reliable/reputable (very important) can be a one-stop-shop as far as being able to purchase everything you need (I started with BrambleBerry), they don't carry everything as there is a huge range of Oils, Butters, Colorants and Scents available to choose from. Along with price points, shipping is also another consideration...which means finding a balance between the two of them. As an example, Shay and Company's Cocoa Butter is a bit on the high side in comparison with RE and BB, but it's offset by the cost of their Shea Butter...plus I'm not paying for shipping.
