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 received my first order and was SO suprised to find your "thank you" gift enclosed.

You folks know your stuff. Yes, I really needed everything you sent in that "thank you" package.

It's those small thoughtful things and your fair-priced products that will keep me coming back for more. :-)

I received my order in my mailbox in ONLY TWO DAYS- unbelieveable!!

I don't normally write reviews but had to in this case. The amazing processing service you have implemented is by far the fastest I've ever experienced. I ordered it midnight and received shipment notice the following morning at 930. Better yet, when I received it, the quality of the products were superb. Bar none, the shea butter is the best I've ever bought. Definitely a repeat customer.

I've ordered from Lotioncrafters twice and I have to say, I am impressed at how fast they get your product out to you. As long as they continue to give this type of service, I will continue to be a loyal customer.

Thanks a bunch LC!!!

I just want to say that I am truly amazed at how fast I always get my order! There is no comparatism to how organized and thoughtful you have been. I can always count on quality and consistency. It makes all the difference.
Always a pleasure. Thanks again!
