The Soap Artisan Friends of Etsy (SAFE) team (formerly CYA team) is a group of soapmakers committed to excellence and best manufacturing practices on etsy. We are open to soapers of all levels, from the hobbyist to the well-established seller, including those who create other bath & body products such as lotions, balms, butters and sprays. We continually strive to perfect our craft and educate ourselves and others about the best practices a soaper must follow both to remain in compliance with FDA laws and to ensure quality products. We are a team that takes great pride in our craft – as it a blend of both science and art.
We are also friends. As such, we value and insist upon respect to all members. We are a world-wide group and run the spectrum of beliefs, cultures, and political leanings, so opinions and personalities will differ - this is expected and respected. We ask that everyone is treated with courtesy and kindness.
Thanks for all of your continued support. We are very excited about the new direction that this team is headed! Stay tuned, we have some great things coming up!
