The last update date:
Soap to use for human hand and face is "cosmetic"
Even if soap washing human hand and face and body is handmade, it is "cosmetics" in "pharmaceutical products medical equipment method (old Pharmaceutical Affairs Law) ※ 1".
We see expression called "miscellaneous goods" well, but thing for the purpose of keeping human hand and face or body clean corresponds to "cosmetics" of "the pharmaceutical products medical equipment method".
About soap for kitchen and soap for washing, we do not receive regulation of "the pharmaceutical products medical equipment method", but appropriate quality indication is necessary if we sell as we receive application of "Household Goods Labelling Law ※ 2".
Permission is necessary to make soap, and to sell.
Cosmetics manufacturing industry and permission of cosmetic manufacturing dealership are necessary to make soap which is these "cosmetics" to sell, and to sell soap which we made in the Internet and bazaars. These permission is necessary even if we present soap which we made to another person.
It is forbidden selling cosmetics made without license.
As for the cosmetics that there is not indication set by cosmetics made without license and "the pharmaceutical products medical equipment method", it is prohibited what sale confers on.
