Guild of Craft Soap & Toiletry Makers - Soaperstar accepted as the first ever non-UK member!

The Guild of Craft Soap & Toiletry Makers was formed by a group of dedicated crafters in September 2007 and was officially launched in September 2007.  It has two specific aims:

  • To raise awareness of the legislative standards that are in place that apply to craft soap and toiletry makers
  • To register as members of the Guild crafters who work in compliance with this legislation and who hold relevant public liability insurance
EU legislation is in place to set specific standards of practice for those who make handcrafted soaps and other bath & body products.  They help to ensure that every ingredient we, as handcrafters, use in our formulations is safe for consumers - they also help the consumer because you will know that what you buy from a Guild member, and, therefore, what you use on your body, will be safe for you to use. 

Soaperstar is very proud to announce that we are the first non UK soap handcrafters to be accepted into the Guild - it is a hugely positive statement of the care we take to ensure that our customers are uppermost in our minds when we carefully formulate our products.  We take huge care to ensure that we abide by all EU legislation in terms of quality of ingredients, the processes we use to manufacture our products, taking care that all our labels are fully compliant and that all of our products have been fully safety assessed by a highly qualified cosmetic chemist.

There still are, unfortunately, handcrafters out there who do not abide by the legislation - it is a real pity that others don't consider the safety of their customers as one of the most important elements of their business.  You can be totally assured that all Soaperstar products are fully EU compliant and that the safety and care of our customers is a vital concern for us. 

I'm so proud to be the first non-UK soaper ever to be accepted into the Guild and I will wear the Guild badge with pride on my website and my blog. 

If you'd like more information about the Guild, please check out their website here.  I'd like to thank Mike at the Guild for all his support and help.
