I’m making soap to give to friends or family. Do I have to register with AICIS?

A. No. You don’t need to register if you gift or sell your soap to others for the cost of the materials.

But you do need to register and check that your ingredients are on the Inventory if you give out free soap for business purposes to market your product. Examples include handing out free samples of branded soap on the street and in stores.

IMPORTANT: Registration applies even if you are a hobbyist, small or start-up business. It is a legal obligation and fines can apply for non-compliance.
