Myth: Soap Labels Aren’t Regulated
So you have been making soap for along time. The people you given it out to....love it\and say that you should sell your soap. You may have beard that you can put what ever you want on your soap label because is not regulated. According to Marie Gale that particular myth got started because of the soap exemption in the FDA's definition of "cosmetic" which is "A product, except soap, intended to be applied to the human body for cleansing, beautifying, promoting attractiveness or alternating the appearance." That maybe true but there are other regulations that apply to labeling soap. So before you start creating your labels for your soap, I would suggest reading Marie Gale's post called Myth: Soap Labels Aren't Regulated.
I have a B.A. in Mass Communication and took my first melt and pour soapmaking class in 2002. Since then I got hooked making my own bath and products. I have taken various courses in Soapmaking (Melt & Pour, Cold Process, Hot Process), lotion making (lotions, creams, lotion sticks), bath products (bath salts, body scrubs), body products (lip balm, body butters, body balms, whipped butters) and more. Most of all of my classes were taught by Lori Nova of The Nova Studio in Point Richmond, Ca. I have taught courses since 2004 at various locations. I have worked as an Event Coordinator at Michaels Redwood City.
