Newsletter of the Guild of Craft Soap & Toiletry Makers
The Guild of Craft Soap and Toiletry Makers (GCSTM) is a non-commercial peer support network which provides information and guidelines about handmade soap crafting and the EU legislation that regulates the cosmetics and toiletries industry. GCSTM is run by volunteers who give their time freely for the benefit of both its members and the profession as a whole. The Guild operates an open admissions policy and membership is FREE to any soap or toiletry maker who holds safety assessments for their product range.
Many of the beard care brands I have reviewed are registered with the guild and I think now more than ever the products that we use should be assessed and certified as safe for sale.
This includes having labels on the products that comply with the rules that can be found here.
