Don’t take any risks and join us. Because anyone who makes soap and bath products must meet certain requirements. Everyone knows that. That makes sense, because the product comes into contact with the skin. If that causes irritation, it can be the skin, but also the soap. If the maker of the soap has adhered to certain requirements, she/he can rest assured that this is not due to the ingredients or recipe and can therefore not be held liable.

The EU Soap Quality System was developed by the brothers Michiel and Maarten Teunissen. Founders of Gildewerk BV, European supplier of supplies for traditional soap makers and initiator of the EU Quality System. The system is continuously tried and tested by the control authorities in each European country where our subscribers are located. The Soap Quality System evolves along with the strict legislation of the European Union.

Gildewerk minimises your risks

The EU Soap Quality System is based on a division of tasks between the company and Gildewerk. In addition to being hygienic, the company must also work according to Gildewerk’s recipe, keep a logbook and apply characteristics to the soap.

Gildewerk supplies all supplies via the quality system and ensures, among other things, that it becomes the first point of contact for consumers who have questions or complaints. The EU Soap Quality System takes a lot of work off your hands and minimizes the risks. The use of a quality system is required by law. The EU Soap Quality System ensures that it remains possible and affordable for your company to produce safely. You can request extensive information about the EU Soap Quality System without any further obligations, or register via the website: sqseurope.com.
