GMP or Good Manufacturing Practices - what does it mean?
As of July 2013 and the EC Regulation 1223/2009 it is now mandatory that all cosmetics are produced with GMP (page 2 section 16).
This makes good sense for everyone as it means safe products, consistent products and so it's good business all round.
So what are the points that need to be covered? Is it just a case of working in a clean room? Most of the points are obvious and you probably do them anyway. But by documenting and recording everything below you will get into the habit of GMP without even thinking about it. We've highlighted the main topics and given you some pointers as to what you should be doing when compiling your GMP procedures and keeping your records.

This is a question we are asked a lot - how much soap will this mould need?
With a pre made mould you should be given the weight of the finished bar.
If you are unsure, fill the cavity with water and then measure the water in a jug.
1ml of water is roughly 1g of soap so this will give you a good idea.
Remember to allow for wasteage when melting and pouring your soap base.
