M&P - Soap or Cosmetic?

Recommended Posts

I first started playing with M&P back in 2005 - from that time up to now I have heard (or rather I guess technically read) a lot of confusion on whether M&P is classified as soap or if it is classified as a cosmetic and what it's labeling requirements were - the confusion has not just been on this board but literally every group I have seen in which M&P  has been discussed - most of the time some have said that some M&P bases are soap and some aren't - other people have been adamant that all M&P bases were not soap at all but rather are considered cosmetic - Here is a great article from Marie Gale's blog that discusses this -

 

Marie Gale's blog

 

The two bases she specifically mentions are Stevenson and SFIC - she states that SFIC is classified as soap but Stephenson is not and explains in detail why - from her explanation you should be able to determine from the ingredients of any base if it is classified as a soap or a cosmetic

 

Also remember, as she points out if you make any other claim other than it is soap or that it "cleans", even if it is classified as soap that claim will automatically make it a cosmetic!

 

Just wanted to share this info in the hope that it might be of use

IDK for sure what the answer is but why not list your ingredients?  I always put mine on the soap label just in case someone had an allergy they could see what was in there.

I agree 100% - with me it's not so much listing the ingredients as it is being able to legally call it soap and label it as such - if you will notice in the store most "soap" does not actually have the word soap on the label!
