Year 8 Soap Challenge
As part of Learning Skills Day in June, current Year 8 students participated in the Soap Challenge with CocoMango. They were given the opportunity to compete for the chance to create their own Soap. They had to decide on a business name, a target market, design not only the packaging, but the actual soap ingredients and finally name their Soap. They also had to look at the business side of costing and look at environmental impact of their chosen ingredients.
Groups presented their products to each other and then the eight finalists chosen presented in front of the year group and to a panel of judges. It was a very tough decision to make but the final winners were PRL with ‘Hydroaction’ whose target audience was men.
As it was too hard to decide, we thought the best solution was for the soaps that came second, third and fourth should also be made. A flyer promoting the various soaps is available as a download below.
The soaps are now available for you to purchase - just in time for Christmas. There is limited stock available so it will be sold on a first come first served basis. Each bar will cost £1.50 as decided by the creators but four bars can be yours for the bargain price of £5 (Saving £1)
