First sorry if this has been posted somewhere else, I did look but didn't have much luck with the search function to be honest!

I know that FO's and EO's have to be bought from certified suppliers to be used in soaps for sale, but what about the botanicals, Fruit juices, purees and dried herbs/berries do they also need to come from certified suppliers or not.

I'm asking as we're trying to begin producing soap from the local national park (national park Thy) to have their mark on the soap it has to contain something from the park (fairly obviously there!) so buying from a certified supplier isn't an option. Is this possible or does the law preclude it.

You need to check with your safety assessor. Not only is there the EU law but also any local country laws - they will be best placed for answers on both
