    Hi everyone, my name is lindsay and I'd like to join you all in this forum. Firstly I'm gonna let you all know my interests here and see if any of you can help me out a bit. First of all I'm looking sell my home made products to the public from my salon and website I have already in place. I'm wondering if any of you can advise me on exaclty what I have to have on the packaging etc and do I have to have quantitites of everything? Also do I have to have batch numbers of oils, fragreances etc or is it just batch of numbers of chemicals?

    Thanks very much in advance,

    Lindsay xx

    Hi Lindsay,

    Glad you joined up and ...

    You do need to keep a PIF (Product Informations file) and it should have all the batch numbers of all the ingredients used...including the fragrances...

    Ingredients labels should list the ingredients in order of volume - so if it's a bath bomb then usually it will have more Sodium Bicarbonate than anything else so that will be first in the list: then Citric; then water (Aqua) and so on down the line...fragrances can be listed as Parfum but essential oils must have the latin name and you will need to list the colour numbers and any allergens present...

    If you search the forum for Allergens there was a recent thread about this and how to calculate...


    HTH...I'm sure someone else will come along and add to my advice

    Good Luck with it all...

      Hi Lindsay

      Welcome to the forum

      I can only agree with Jude, Bathbomb, you will also have to have your products safety assessed prior to selling them.

      Have a chat with your local Trading Standard Officer - they are really helpful.

          Hi there
          You will also need to have a safety assessment for every product that you sell, also your own batch number for each product made and best before date (you will know the best before date from the safety assessment - eg -12 months from manufacture). If you haven't got assessments already I can reccomend someone to buy them from (just pm me) they cost £150 and have a huge range of ingredients to choose from.
          Hope this helps
