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.

It is with great sadness we have discontinued shipping to Australia due to the Australian government shifting their burden of tax collection and remission to foreign sellers. Given there is no reciprocal agreement between the USA and Australia for excise tax collection, we are declining to register with Australia and start burdensome international tax collection on their behalf. Please note, this also includes the use of package forwarders as the tax collection burden is still the seller's responsibility. We're unhappy, you're unhappy, but unless the situation changes, this is where we are. Jenny

Jen, I have been wanting to say thank you in a very special way for a long time. I have been trying to switch as much of my business over to your shop as possible. Everyone talks about your fabulous customer service. But what I am most impressed about it how smart you are and the wide variety or products you have available for the small business, The quality of research you have posted on your site is not available anywhere else. Whenever I have a very difficult formulating problem to solve I come to your site. None of my other suppliers (many of whom I spend 100's of dollar a month with) can answer even simple questions. You have gotten back to me within minutes with very educated answers and suggestions. I feel like you have given me tools, resources, and base ingredients to really blossom. I am so grateful.
