Hi. I am new to this site! I am just getting into soap making! Hooray! There is so much stuff out there to buy and use. Excited! I was wondering about using the word Organic i[/color]n my business name. What percentage of ingredients need to be organic? Thanks

Hello, welcome aboard.

If not all the ingredients are organic you could describe the product as "with Organic xxxx..."

Terming a product as "Organic" if it's not 100% is open to complaints from some quarters.

Hi and a warm welcome to the forum.

I agree with EJ.  It might be worth looking at the guidelines to labelling organic products on the Soil Association site (even if you are not going to go down the certification route - it can be a good guide)  :buttrf:

the word organic product means it needs to be approved by one of organic certification groups. Soil Association (UK) and EcoCert (EU) are the most popular for cosmetics at least.

for food it needs to be 95% organic ingredients, for cosmetics it's a little different as we use inorganic ingredients like water and lye. They have a list of what ingredients are allowed (and it's different for different certification). I'm not sure if lye is in the allowed list of ingredients, I think it is now. You need to get certification though.

I personally wouldn't use the word organic in brand or company name as it may fall foul of rules if some of products you sell don't quite have certification. You can as EJ said say uses organic ingredients.
