Great companies need
ethical partners

Valley Products can provide the industrial soaps, soap bases and lipid products you need to accomplish your goals while dodging the barriers that are hindering your competition – barriers like…

  • Reliance on harsh, synthetic ingredients that clash with regulations
  • Supply chain issues that compromise their reputation
  • Uncertainty about the best methods and tools for their task

You can do better. Let us show you how!


Industrial Soap

Soap Flakes and Powders

We custom-formulate vegetable oils and animal fats to produce high-quality flaked and powdered soaps. Our flaked soap and powered soap products can be used as release agents, anti-tacks, plasticizers and lubricants.

Soap Bases

Soap Noodles and Bases

A full line of organic, all natural, and traditional soap noodles and soap bases for use in manufacturing bar soaps. We produce low glycerin bases and bases with increased glycerin for added emollient capabilities.

Lipid Products

Liquid Soap Bases

We produce industrial fatty acids, vegetable oils, and liquid soap bases for many manufacturing, industrial, and animal feed applications. All our industrial fatty acid soaps and oils are produced in compliance with our ISO 9001, GMP–B2, and HACCAP systems.

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) warns that 1.2 million people working in machine tooling and finishing operations are potentially exposed to harmful levels of metalworking fluids known to cause hypersensitivity pneumonitis, chronic bronchitis, impaired lung function, asthma and rashes.

Trusted by the best

A surprising number of products you use on a daily basis are created using raw ingredients from Valley Products Co, and we’re not just talking about soap! We make the release agents that help products slide out of molds, the lubricants that keep machinery running smoothly, the plasticizers that keep products flexible and so much more!
You don’t just have great production experts, you have some incredible scientists on staff that were able to walk us through the process of selecting the ingredients that make our soap stand out in the crowd. Thanks!

We got off to a rocky start with another supplier and reached out to Valley to see if they could help. What a difference! I feel like I understand our product 10x better, and they were able to get us on shelves by our original goal date!

We know fragrance, but we don’t know soap. Scott was able to help us help us craft a line of soaps that tie in perfectly with the rest of our products. Our customers expect a certain experience from us; you helped us deliver!

A tradition of excellence


We are still a family business. When Charles and Evelyn Breazeale founded Valley Products in 1943, they believed in attention to detail. So do we. That’s why human eyes and hands inspect each step of the manufacturing process, just like in the old days. Modern equipment and technology are utilized at Valley Products, but there are no substitutes for personal attention. We know you expect the ultimate in quality products and customer service, and we constantly strive to meet and surpass your expectations.

While our commitment to quality and service has never changed, many things have. Our 5-acre plant site has grown to 22 acres. The original multi-car rail siding will now accommodate extensive jumbo tanker cars. We started with one small building and now have over 200,000 square feet of modern manufacturing and warehouse space.
