The Guild of Craft Soap & Toiletry Makers

The Guild of Craft Soap & Toiletry Makers (GCSTM) is an organization that raises awareness of the legislation surrounding soap and toiletries sold in the EU.
The legislation sets standards. It aims to ensure that every ingredient in handcrafted soap & toiletry products is safe to use. Some ingredients are banned because they’ve been found by scientific testing to be potentially harmful. Other products are banned or restricted because they are potential allergens. The aim of the legislation is to protect the general public and the craft soap & toiletry maker.

EU based craft soap & toiletry maker who can demonstrate that their products have been safety assessed and approved for sale by a chartered chemist in line with the Cosmetics Products (Safety) Regulations are able to become members of the GCSTM. To learn more about GCSTM go to
