    Default Lawmakers Want FDA To Crack Down On Home-Based Soap Makers

    Erin Elizabeth
    December 28 2015

    People who are trying to do good for their families and the planet by living a simple life based on traditional skills are facing yet another assault. Artisanal soap makers say new regulations, proposed by Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-California) and Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine), will put them out of business.
    The view of Sen. Feinstein and her corporate backers (listed below) is that the Personal Care Products Safety Act (Senate Bill S.1014) will make the world a safer place by scrutinizing “everything from shampoo and hair dye to deodorant and lotion.” She says the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act should be more progressive like laws in Europe rather than antiquated US regulations in effect since the 1930s.

    You make soap? How dare you. Make soup and be glad we let you do that.

    Disgusting, I jest. You have a dog? They're hillatiors but not the Clinton kind

    This one really frosts my cupcakes! I've been making my own soap from lard, lye, and (sometimes) oatmeal for 40 years. How dare they tell me I can't make my own soap! Some artisans make it with goat milk, more sophisticated oils, or maybe essential oil fragrances, but outside of edibles, there is nothing safer than homemade soap... Especially when you consider all the chemicals that go into commercial soaps, shampoos, antibacterial scrubs and the like. You can be sure that Senator Collins will get an earful from me!

    If people have any functioning brains left, the underground barter economy should be growing by leaps and bounds by now, to keep the "authorities" off our backs and out of out personal business.

    If you are connected with Laurie Kathleen on Facebook, Maurya, you'll know that she is a member of a group of 17,000 women in agriculture and livestock farming who all believe firmly in the value of GMOs and the infallability of the USDA and FDA. And that's probably just the tip of the iceberg. Pretty sobering.

    Yes, Islander; and her comments about this group were pretty frightening to me. This type of group "should" have comprised the "good guys".

    My word, Maurya, you are the first person I've seen to use the word comprise correctly!
