Survey Questions

Thank you for taking the time to answer our annual survey questions. Answering them thoroughly and honestly will make the results useful for you so that you may see where our industry is and where it’s heading. If the question doesn’t pertain to you, please skip it. Feel free to add comments, but we can only quote you if you give us your name. Notice that even if you don’t own a business, you can still answer most of the questions.

Feel free to forward the survey link to any individual, list, networking site, etc., involved in soaping, toiletries, or candlemaking. Just be sure you have permission first, when necessary.
