Greetings everyone! Our new product of the day is a fantastic book called Good Manufacturing Practices for Soap & Cosmetic Handcrafters by Marie Gale. Marie Gale has written a number of books about soaps and cosmetics and they are so helpful.
This book goes over many different areas such as getting to know GMP, documentation basics, procedures, ingredients and packaging materials, production and manufacturing, and quality control. I think this book would be great for anyone who is in the soap making business!
“It is my hope that this book will dispel some of the fear and anxiety about good manufacturing practices and provide you with practical advice about establishing good manufacturing practices that work for you, in your individual situation. As each piece of your GMP is put in place, you’ll find it becomes increasingly easy to consistently produce the unique, high- quality handcrafted soap and cosmetics that you and your customers expect- every product, every batch, every time.” -Marie Gale
Andee, your blog guru, says “This is the book that makes it possible for you to turn your production over to anyone as long as you set up complete procedures! I would highly recommend for anyone wanting to streamline their business.”
