There are many U.S. soapmakers here at SMF who already know this, but for those who keep arguing that it isn't true, here is one link to a discussion about it less than 4 years ago, in which a response from the FDA confirmed the question: https://www.soapmakingforum.com/thr...tions-re-ingredients.49159/page-2#post-459051 Above letter was referenced again the following year when the question came up again: https://www.soapmakingforum.com/thr...-products-safety-act.53917/page-2#post-512951 It has been discussed at length on several threads including:https://www.soapmakingforum.com/thr...regulations-re-ingredients.49159/#post-458526 Anyway, it seemed that the old argument has come up again, so thought I'd point this out with the references to back it up. If anyone in the U.S. wants to argue that fact, I suggest y'all contact Mr. Wright, the FDA agent who clearly informed our SMF member, new12soap that (and I quote) "Shaving soaps are regulated as cosmetics." His contact information is in the link above. I am sure he would be willing to confirm what the rest of us already know. If he doesn't work there anymore, there is bound to be another FDA agent willing to confirm this fact.
