Hi, I'm looking into a small business making natural cosmetics.
I just wondered if anyone has any experience of getting a safety assessment for bath teas.  Looking at the permitted ingredients on Scott's site, it looks like I could only include a maximum of 10% botanicals in a bath product.  The tea would however be massively diluted in the bath water and I only intend to use food quality ingredients.  I don't want to spend time formulating something that won't be allowed.  Obviously, I could ask them but I don't want to bombard them with daft questions, so I thought I would ask here first. TIA.

Hello and welcome to the forum.

I can't help, but Scott is used to daft questions so I am sure he will answer you. Someone else may come along with the answer.

Hello!!!!!  A warm welcome to the forum.

I am really sorry that I can't help you with your question, but like Suzanne said, Scott is probably the best person to put you right. 

It's really nice to have you here  Smiley

Hello and welcome to the forum!

Best to ask Scott re Bath Tea ingredients as I would expect such a product to be comprised of botanicalsin the main.

Hi and welcome to the forum Smiley

I had considered making bath teas too until I looked Scotts list of permitted ingredients and until I realised that I would need to purchase different assessments for teas, salts and bombs, so I have decided to combine the bath salt and bath tea idea, so effectively herbal bath salt tea bags. Yes it would probably mean I wouldn't be using as much herb as I would have liked but I preferred to do that than drop the idea entirely. Let us know how you get on anyway Smiley

Hi,  nice to meet you Smiley

Best idea would probably be to come up with a very rough formula and then ask Scott his advice re how to apply for an assessment that may cover several alternatives.

Have you made other cosmetics already?

If you have any queries about cosmetic ingredients and permitted levels in products, feel free to contact me.  Just because an ingredient is not on a permitted list does not mean it can't be used in cosmetic products.  If you can send the proposed formulation or ingredients you wish to use that would be a great help.

You can submit the query here.
