    For those of you who make and sell goat's milk soap how much per oz do you charge and how did you get that cost. I did my own cost analysis, but I want to check it.

    Honestly it depends on what I put in it, but basically it averages out to about $4.00 a bar for basic soap or about $1 an ounce.

    For a unscented 4 oz. bar I charge $5.00. Scented would be $5.50 or $6.00.
