WHO WE ARE
Oshun Supply Inc. is a small family owned and operated online wholesale business. We are located in Salmon Arm, in the sunny Shuswap region of the Southern Interior of beautiful British Columbia, Canada, half way between Vancouver and Calgary. We supply a wide selection of in-stock cosmetic ingredients and packaging. We are strictly web based, we are not open to the public, all orders are shipped out. Our warehouse is located on our family property, our business license prohibits public on the property due to the zoning.
 
OUR CLIENTELE
We serve the cosmetic, soap & personal care industry, small businesses, cosmetic manufacturers, retailers, spas, salons, tattoo and body art studios, as well as the aromatherapy, health, fitness, novelty, specialty food, spice, liquor, grooming and natural products markets. Although we are a wholesale company, our clients include individuals, hobbyists, soapmakers, crafters, aromatherapists, M.D.s, N.D.s, RMTs, universities, schools and fundraisers.
 
HOW WE OPERATE
Keeping our overhead costs low by being home based, online, and having efficient systems means we can offer pricing that is very competitive with much larger companies. We do not have a showroom, reps or a receptionist to answer the phone. Our web site is a full service site and contains all our product pricing, information, photos, ordering and more. Unlike some web sites that are just an electronic business card or contain only marketing and advertising but no content, you'll find everything you need on our site from obtaining information and ingredient lists prior to ordering as well as being able to order right from our web site at your leisure. We know how important and valuable your time is, so we won't waste it by making you ask us for every little bit of information or prices. It's all at your fingertips on our web site 24/7.
 
HISTORY
Oshun Supply Inc. started out as Oshun Spirit Arts Ltd. in Langley BC in 1996. We wanted to do business a new way rather than using traditional models and have built the business up over the years based on our standard of ethics and by providing one stop shopping and making things easier and faster for our clients. We started out with no policies or terms and offered a high degree of flexibility in various aspects of ordering. Over time due to the behavior of a few, we have been forced to implement policies as needed to protect ourselves and our systems to be able to continue to offer fast, efficient service. In 1998 we relocated to larger premises in Mission, BC.
 
Our product selection has grown considerably over the years, based on the needs of our clients. Up until June 2002, we also manufactured a line of body care products, but discontinued this line in order to better focus our attention to the major part of our business, supply of ingredients and packaging. Having had experience manufacturing a product line helps us understand our clients needs better.
 
In early 2003, we changed our corporate name to Oshun Supply Inc., to better reflect the nature of our business. Everything else is unchanged. The company is still owned and operated by the Gagnon family. In the fall of 2004 we moved to Salmon Arm, BC. We had long outgrown our previous warehouse space in Mission. Our new warehouse building gave us the room to carry yet more stock, add new products and to grow in the future.
 
We have a couple of other domains through which to access our site, so our web site can also be found at: www.oshunsupply.com and www.ingredientsandpackaging.com as well as our standard main Canadian domain at www.oshun.ca
 

 

We try to provide lots of information about the products we sell and we add to the information on this web site ongoing. The information we do provide is not all encompassing and we encourage our clients to research all ingredients they plan to use. We have provided a large collection of links to many sites on our links page to be of help to you. These include regulatory, research, industry, trade publication, msds, health, computer, web site, formulary sites and more.
 
Thank you all for your support and business, it is much appreciated. We wish you all the utmost success and happiness in all your endeavors. We look forward to continuing to be your wholelsale source for quality with Canada's largest selection of in-stock cosmetic ingredients, esssential oils and packaging.
