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.

This is only the third time that I've ordered from Lotioncrafter; but each time, I have been absolutely shocked at how quickly my order has been processed and shipped. The quality of the ingredients I have received are unmatched by any other company, the prices are extremely reasonable, and the customer service is quite obviously above and beyond my expectations. Thank you, Jen! I'm so glad to have found Lotioncrafter...

Items all arrived on time and very well packaged. It looks like Lotioncrafter took the time to wrap and label each item carefully, legibly and to protect from moisture and light. They even returned part of my shipping cost to just cover the actual incurred shipping cost. Nice and honest seller. Will definitely return to shop for some more stuff. Thank you!

We had a small problem with our recent order and called customer support today. They apologized profusely for the issue and said they would call back with a resolution. They called back quickly with an excellent resolution. I absolutely couldn\'t be more happy with them. If they carry what I need I will NEVER buy it from anyone else. I am sold on LotionCrafter!

I just wanted to say how much I love the service. Soon after placing my order I got an email confirmation that is was shipping. I received the right item and was pleased with it. I shop online all the time and this site has the fastest shipping and best customer service I've ever come across. No complaints. I'll definitely be ordering from this site again.
