National Awareness Campaign Leaftlet

Published as part of our National awareness campaign – August 2013

Hand crafted soaps and toiletries are very popular, but how do you know if they are safe or legal?

The manufacture and sale of soaps and toiletry products must comply with the Cosmetic Products Safety Regulations. This applies to ALL cosmetic products supplied in the UK & EU, whether for consumer or professional use, supplied through traditional retail outlets, craft or farmers’ markets or to private purchasers online via mail order.

Cosmetic items manufactured for personal use are exempt from the regulations
