I’m from America and I wondered what equipment you were referring to. Isn’t the shipping cost high? I am enjoying this thread. I, too, only make for charity and for friends. It’s fun and relaxing.Thanks for replying to be fare I’m hoping that uk soap makers can come together and help each other out like where to buy ingredients , CPSRs and equipment I’ve found The Soap Kitchen quite good on prices and if you buy all ingredients from them the CPSRs are really well priced compared to all others I’ve seen. I have ADHD an very surprising to me and my partner I’m finding I’m actually enjoying compliance as much as making the soapy sudsy stuff
she is amazing!!!
so how come you haven’t given CP a go yet ?
if you make soap you are a soap maker regardless of how you make it
I like The Soap Kitchen to buy my ingredients from only because I use there CPSR generator and if you buy ingredients from them the reports are cheaper ingredients it’s not that bad to get hold of some equipment I find either expensive or you have to buy from America for the good stuff anyway ….. it’s compliance that the hardest part I actually enjoy this side of it but I’ve noticed a lot of people struggling with it … it’s knowing what the legalities are … what files you have to create what needs to go on labels and that sort of stuff it seems daunting at first but once your in the know it’s not actually as hard as it looks I’m always learning and was hoping this thread could be a great source of information for uk soap makers … for instance if you get your hands on a really good mould then put it on here where you got it from so other soapers could get it too or if you get one that’s not working ……ANYWAY anyway enough of my rambling good luck for the move ….welcome to the thread ,, And I look forward to chatting about all soapy things UK with soon
