Can I do this and what do I need to do to protect myself? I am a Canadian from Toronto, but the first batches will be shipped from Arizona. I have my heart set on it, I don't want loads of melt and pour soap just sitting around the house that I can't use. I do intend to turn it into a business, but not yet. I already know to inform health Canada of the product type, labeling and insurance in case there is a reaction to the soap. I do not want to charge anyone money for the soap. I know this might not be according to the rules, but I have no idea where to turn since I can't find answers online. I have emails health canada to see what they say but no response. Do you give your soaps away to friends?
