    Default Selling my products!

    Hi lovelies, I am a beauty crafter and love making my own products.
    I am now looking to sell some things, due to friends and family asking - but am not sure about the legalities of it? I am based in the UK.

    One thing I want to make is a liquid highlighter, which consists of mainly oil, preservative, silicon and pigment. In 5 shades.
    The other things are pressed glitters, which is cosmetic glitter - with oil and pressed.

    Do I need them safety tested?
    If so how? where? how much?
    Do I need to prepare them in a special way? Will my kitchen do, if I follow food safety and hygeine standards.

    Thanks in advance!

    Don't forget you will also need to register as self employed with HMRC.
