the laws behind selling your own perfume

    the laws behind selling your own perfume

    Thread Starter 

    I'm seriously considering starting my own small independent niche line. But one of my main concerns is whether or not it is legally easy to create your own perfumes and sell them to the public. I live in the U.S. on the east coast, and intend to market mainly within the U.S.

    I know that there are some cosmetics license issues to be found on the government's web site, things to fill out, etc. But I'm not sure what is really needed, or if anything is needed. I have the types of perfumes, the formulas, the brand "image" and marketing worked out. But whenever I research the legal paperwork issues (ass-covering issues, in other words) I get confused. I look at guys like John Pegg over at kerosene and wonder if he just did it on the fly, or went through a lengthy process to make selling possible.

    Any advice or tips is appreciated.

    Hire yourself a legal consultant.

    Yeah, costs money to make money.

    Perhaps try to ask those homemade soap sellers on Youtube to find out some basic information regarding this. I bet that would be easier to get some answers.

    Good Luck!
