Chemistry Connection, a subsidiary of Wholesale Supplies Plus is based in and operates out of beautiful Conway in central Arkansas, about 30 minutes N of Little Rock Arkansas and 2.5 hours from Memphis TN. 


Announcement and News.

 In Mid 1998, Mary Anne  Hughey began making soaps and lotions at home for resale, to add extra income to support a growing family. Then in mid 2000, she and Mark began selling hard to find chemicals and ingredients, primarily for making soap, hair and skin care, on Ebay. As the business grew, Mark built their first website, saveoncitric.com, and later makeyourown.buzz continuing their focus on specialty products for making skin and hair care, bath and body products.  The business thrived, and a larger inventory of  unique products continued to be added, and Anne and their 3 sons, and a growing, dedicated staff shipped orders out to customers all over the globe.  

What started as a small home based soap and lotion business,  grew into a large supply house for soap makers, and formulators for bath, body, skin and hair care products. Their dedicated customer base, made up of all sized customers, from small home based businesses and crafters, to medium and large companies and large formulators, now receive shipments out of their 22,000 + square feet of warehouse and office space located in Conway Arkansas. 

In late 2020 Chemistry Connection, was acquired by Wholesale Supplies Plus, from the founders, Mary Anne and Mark Hughey.  About the sale, Anne Hughey says  "The sale of Chemistry Connection, as you can imagine, was a difficult one. We love our customers,  we love the business, and our great staff is second to none.  We had decided to make a change to semi retire and travel. As we got to know the people of Wholesale Supplies Plus, and see their dedication to all the customers in this unique market, we knew we were leaving the business, and our customers in great hands, and the decision was much easier. The people at Wholesale Supplies Plus have all been wonderful through this whole process. It's a great fit."  

Through the transition, the Hugheys still run the business, with our same great staff, taking care of their customers  out of their facilities in Conway Arkansas.

We appreciate your continued support through the transtition and in the future as we work hard to provide you with unique chemicals and ingredients at a great value.  

Our staff is still with us, and as always we hire good local people,  we're involved in our local community, and give back to several local charities serving our community.  One is Bethlehem House in Conway here where we serve meals and volunteer.  

Again, "THANK YOU " so very much for your continued support, and your trust. It's appreciated as much now as ever. We look forward to continuing to serve you.
