From the back cover:
So you 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!
In Soap & Cosmetic Labeling, author Marie Gale clearly explains the different rules and regulations that apply to labeling soaps and cosmetics and other related products. As she says, "getting the labeling right isn't very complicated... but it is very detailed."
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 additives 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 clear and easy to understand, and Soap & Cosmetic Labeling an excellent guide through the maze of labeling regulations.
