A quick guide to selling soap and other cosmetics in the UK, now includes a checklist, Label template and PIF template.

So you've been making soap or lip balms at home for Christmas gifts. The family love them and some have even suggested you should start selling them! You'd just need to get yourself on Etsy or set up a website, or even just a Facebook group and you'll get yourself a little pocket money for your hobby.

Unfortunately it isn't quite as easy as that. There are many things to consider including rules and regulations that, if you don't comply with, could land you with hefty fines or even imprisonment!

With 20 pages, easy to read font and a printable checklist, this e-book is here to help you navigate your way through the basics and get you started in the world of selling cosmetics.

I cannot take any responsibility for the actions you take in your business and this e-book is just intended to provide guidance, if you are ever unsure you can get clarification through your Cosmetic Assessor, Insurer or local Trading Standards representative.
