Marie's Labeling Class was ranked as “Excellent” by 100% of the attending students!

We are so thrilled to have the author of *THE* book on soap and cosmetic labeling, Marie Gale, back at The Nova Studio doing another class on labeling. This session will be useful to anyone considering selling their products (or already selling and you have some questions about whether or not your labels are correct).

This 4-hour workshop will cover the following:

  • What nearly ALL products require on the label, no matter what they are (cosmetic, soap, household, etc.)
  • Determining if your product is a cosmetic, soap, drug, "consumer commodity" or something else
  • The different options for labeling soap (For example, must you use the INCI names?)
  • How to determine the right size and placement for the required information
  • Ingredient listings (there actually are some options/choices you'll have to make)
  • Newly formatted hands-on workshop to review or design your product labels

What To Bring: Attendees should bring 3 of their products (with or without labels). Throughout the workshop, you will be (hands-on) applying the information to the products for your labels. Workbooks for notes and your label design ideas will be provided. Be sure to bring your copy of Marie's second edition book if you own it already (see requirement directly below).

Requirement: All attendees must have a copy of Marie's book (Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: Second Edition) with them at the class. If you already have one, please bring it with you. Those who don't have a copy with them will need to purchase one at The Nova Studio ($24.95 + $2.18 tax - $27.13 total).

After the class, Marie is happy to sign copies of her book!
