I only want a few powders and one scent but I'm so stunned by the horrific postal charges!
Three 5g mica powders and one 30ml fragrance oil = £5 delivery charge :oops:

It seems most UK sites have similar charges.
One has free p&p but the products are almost twice the price of the sites that charge £5 delivery.

Is there anywhere that does reasonable postal charges for small orders?

thank you

Most of them are B2B focussed and have low prices but higher postage - it depends if you are selling and need the documents or not as well.

If not, you could order from Amazon or eBay, have you tried The Soapery for mica, they also sell on Amazon as well as on their own site? There are a few other smaller business that arent the cheapest but they also dispatch much quicker.

To be honest, when I am still at the playing stage with a new recipe or design I just buy ingredients at Tesco or eBay. Its only once I know I need to go for an assessment that I narrow that down to suppliers who have the MSDS etc.
