Guild of Craft Soap & Toiletry Makers
Our Mission Statement: To raise awareness of legislation relating to craft soap and toiletry making and to increase industry compliance.

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 our 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.

The Guild has two very specific aims:

1. To raise awareness of the legislative standards that are in place that apply to craft soap and toiletry products – specifically EU Regulation 1223/2009 (Cosmetics Regulation)

2. To register as members of the Guild crafters who work in compliance with this legislation and who hold relevant public liability insurance

Who Can Join the Guild?

The Guild is free to join and is open to any EU based craft soap and toiletry maker who can demonstrate that their products have been safety assessed and approved for sale by a chartered chemist or other approved person as defined by the EU Regulation 1223/2009 (Cosmetics Regulation).
