This is a must do course for anybody making their own products.
Every part of the labelling is regulated and it is a minefield to know what needs to be listed and in exactly what format.  
Do you know what the declarable allergens are within your fragrance and essential oils?
Do you know to calculate them and how to show them on your labels?
Do you know how to use the correct way to declare your ingredients on the label?  Can you use the correct INCI format for your ingredients and are you aware of the ways that you are legally allowed to declare your ingredients?
Do you know how to show the product shelf life?
Are you fully aware of how the weights or measures apply to your product?
Do you know what must be labelled and what does not require a label?
Here are just a few of the things we will be covering on the session:

  • Safety assessments/Certification
  • Labelling - The what, why, how, where and when guide!
  • CI or colour index numbers
  • INCI
  • Jargon buster and abbreviation guide
  • Best Before
  • Allergen declarations
  • Hazards and warnings
  • Weights & measures
  • Trading Standards

Day 2
If you thought day 1 was fabulous just wait until day 2!  
Start the day with the Soap School taking you through the skills and techniques to make your own

  • Natural liquid soaps
  • Shower Products 

Liquid soaps outsell bar soaps 8:1 so this a real bonus in any soap making repertoire.  If that isn't reason enough, then the feel of it will certainly persuade you.  Washing with a handmade liquid soap is like washing with liquid silk and you will never use another detergent based soap again once tried.
Whilst the process takes several hours we will have plenty of time to talk about   Cream soaps which are still mostly undiscovered in the UK but are one of the most delicious and exciting soaps to create.  It's natural soft texture lends itself to several exclusive soap products and we will explore these includin making a luxury shaving cream.
The numbers are strictly limited and will go fast so to ensure you get your place you can pay just a £100 deposit.
