I have to disagree with the other review. While it is not as detailed as the cGMP courses I have taken in Post Graduate Professional courses it is a great starting primer for the small crafter who wants to sell product and do it correctly. These Crafters are the exact market for whom the book was written. They have little to no previous exposure to cGMP and this is a great all around starting resource. It has everything included which will allow this person to make goo, safe products as well as to limit their liability. I work with small start-up lines. If they insist on producing their own product I will recommend the book. In some cases I have actually purchased a copy and sent it to them as part of my services.
This is a wonderful book, I highly recommend it for anyone who is considering selling their bath creations. I wasn't sure about buying this book because the author is American but she explains the requirements for Canada and other countries too. I still have a long way to go but armed with this book I feel much better prepared to start my own soap business.
A must-have book for Handcrafted Soap Makers and Sellers. If you're going to sell your handcrafted soaps you need this book to make sure you're following good manufacturing practices. This will help you be prepared when your soap shop gets a visit from the inspectors.
A great beginner book for GMP practices for those in the cottage industry.
Informative, well-organized, and clear -- just what a cottage crafter needs in order to get themselves organized. I've begun the process of reshaping my crafting process and record-keeping to meet GMP, and am looking forward to no longer worrying about compliance!
This is a must have for anyone that wants to be in compliance with their product labels. This is a must have for any soapmaker or anyone that makes bath and body products.
This book is a must read for creating a great work space and for compliance with FDA regulations. So pleased and not boring to read at all
