Drug Claims and Lip Balm
I just returned from the 2011 Handcrafted Soapmakers Guild Annual Conference in Miami. It was terrific! This year I went as a speaker and a vendor, and had time to enjoy some of the other speakers and presenters.

Book Review by Erica Pence
Erica Pence just published a review on my book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling, on her The Bonnie Bath Co. Pro blog. I’m so pleased that the book was of help to her and that she has recommended it to other soapmakers! See the Eric’s book review.

While I’ve done similar presentations in the past, this time was different because they were 1000 miles away and I could have done it in my jammies […]
Book 2nd Edition is HERE!!
At long last, the 2nd edition of my book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling, has finally arrived from the printer. Hurray!! I have to say, I always have palpitations when something has gone to print. Waiting for it to come back, wondering what might go wrong (or what typos I missed) is hard – especially this […]

Saponifier Review of Soap & Cosmetic Labeling
I have to say I am just tickled with the review that Beth Byrne wrote about my book in the on-line soapmakers magazine, The Saponifier. When they said they were going to review the book I was happy, but I never expected such a glowing (and long) discussion of the book! I’ve always been a […]

My book is done!
Today I went to town and picked up the first official printing of my book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling; How to Follow the Rules and Regs in Plain English. Funny, even though I wrote every word and line and have been over the text a gazillion times, it still seems strange to see it as […]
