Soap & Cosmetic Labeling
How to Follow the Rules and Regulations Explained in Plain English

by Marie Gale
Softcover, 184 pages
Third Edition, Published 2015

"So you've just developed an awesome soap or cosmetic product. You gave it out to friends and family who raved about it and urged you to put it on the market. You checked on what that would take, and that's when you hit the wall of rules and regulations. Thud! Does that mean you've hit a dead end? Absolutely not!"

So says Marie Gale, author of Soap & Cosmetic Labeling, in her book entirely devoted to the task of labeling soap and cosmetics correctly. Written to clarify and explain the basic regulations and make them easy to understand and follow, this book is a must have for anyone who is serious about selling their soaps, cosmetics, and other creations.

The Third Edition includes more pictures and diagrams to give examples of labeling options.  While the FDA's regulations haven't changed much, the FDA has updated their website and clarified some information (such as the expected way to list botanical ingredients and the option to use a listing in an online phone directory to satisy the requirements to omit the street address from the label) and this volume includes this updated information. 

Additionally there is a chapter cover other non-labeling laws and regulations that could affect your business, and a checklist you can use to do a bisic check on your labels to make sure they are in compliance.

This book explains, in plain English, how to follow product labeling rules and regulations from: 

  • Food, Drug & Cosmetic Act
  • Fair Product and Labeling Act
  • Uniform Weights & Measures Law
  • Uniform Packaging and Labeling Regulations State Laws

In addition, the appendixes include cosmetic color addivites and their approved uses, INCI names for common ingredients, restricted and prohibited ingredients and metric conversion charts.

Whether you're an old hand or a newcomer to the business of soap and cosmetics, you'll find the information presented here to be clear and easy to understand, and Soap & Cosmetic Labeling an excellent guide through the maze of labeling regulations.

Our Customers Say...
I can't believe I didn't find you guys earlier. I have been making skin care for almost 20 years. It has almost been a challenge as a small manufacturer to buy small quantities of high quality skin care ingredients, and yet here you were just across Puget Sound.

I've been bouncing around between your company and others for products like cyclomethicone, etc. You have won out for a number of reasons. I love everything about your company. One problem; I live in NY. And I'm so anxious to get my products. Nevertheless your shipments are received in a very timely fashion. Thanks for the sample of SheaNilotica. It's fabulous.

Just recieved my lotioncrafters delivery of Lactic Acid. It came very quick in the mail. Cant wait to get some more products from this site..Thanks so Much for the quick delivery

Fastest and nicest service ever. Ordered the Shea nilotica yesterday and Jen wasn't kidding. This is some luxurious shea. Very rich and creamy, not grainy at all and hardly a scent compared to others I've used. Impressed that the delivery made it in a day and of the care and time taken to change and fix my order....the morning of! The measuring tools were just a bonus for a professional first purchase experience, thank you so much.

I am a newbie at lotion malling and really appreciate the information provided by Lotioncrafters. I purchased Lotion Making 101 and Jenny was kind enough to make sure I got the ebook without having to use my ancient desktop. I highly recommend the book. It makes the process and ingredient possibilities very clear. And the quick shipping is fabulous. Again, thank you.
