I make homemade aromatherapy bath salts, creams, and pillow sprays and plan on trying to sell them to make some money, and if they're popular enough maybe even open a storefront. But first i want to know if i need to get any legal checks on my products or anything like that; i've been all over the internet and can't find any information on this.
Any info would be really appreciated; thanks.
ps; everything that goes into them meets standards; its mostly just essential oils and bases, cream, epsom salt, or water.
Hello Elle. While I may not be able to give you direct information regarding products that may or may not require FDA approval, I can give you the most important one.
Before you even think of giving a free sample to a neighbor down the street let alone sell a bar of soap, you need to get a business attorney and create a licensed and legitimate Limited Liability Corporation. If you do not, and someone has the slightest rash or allergic reaction, you can stand to lose EVERYTHING in civil suit.
You need to trademark a name, get patent protection on your product formulas, start a legitimate and fully licensed LLC and make sure you get any and all regulatory approval. The best place to get any pertinent regulatory information is directly from the US Food and Drug Administration. I would write them a certified letter or call them.
I am not a Lawyer and this isn't legal advice. All statements are to the best of my knowledge, however they do not replace the expert advice from a licensed and ethical attorney.
