Q&A: Separate Manufacturing Spaces

Q&A

health canada cosmetics GMP

Q:

Hi Jess,

I love all of the information you provide on your blog regarding selling handmade home crafted soaps etc.

I have been trying to find specific information from Health Canada and the food and drug regulation regarding selling handmade/home made soaps and am unable to find a specific answer to my question.

Basically my question is are you able to make and sell soaps and lotions you have made at home to the general public without having to have a total and completely separate space within your home to "manufacture" the products for example a separate kitchen?
