Cosmetic Safety Assessment Service/Certification/CPSR
You must have a valid safety assessment to legally be able to sell your product in the UK and the EU. The safety assessment certifies that those ingredients listed can be made up in a variety of combinations as long as they do not exceed the stated limits. The assessment also lists the product restrictions and limits for you, making it an easy reference guide when developing your formulas.
Soap School can provide contact details for a number of Assessors who can provide Safety Assesments. Please feel free to email us for a list of safety ssessors who an help you with your assessment.
