Personal Care Market Challenges

Formulating and marketing safe and effective personal care products in a competitive world is hard enough. Safety data sheets are often required from distributors and retailer and end users, and they must meet new and ever-changing regulations without disclosing unnecessary details to competitors.

Whether your products are soaps, scrubs, lotions, contain fragrances, or are fragrance free, SDScribe™ provides a simple, cost-effective way to create SDSs. Optional features include maintaining an inventory of raw materials and finished products, and creating batch production records which can allocate against raw materials stock.

SDS Templates for Personal Care Products

SDScribe™ includes templates for personal care products. When you create an SDS using a template, the new SDS will already have content in many sections, saving you time. Complete other parts of the SDS using a selection of stock phrases which are relevant to particular fields on the form.

You can customize a template so that it is more relevant to your product line. You can even create your own templates from completed SDSs – you identify content that is not common to the other SDSs, and SDScribe™ removes it from the template.


SDS templates have a yellow background to distinguish them from actual Safety Data Sheets. You can customize templates by entering information common to all of your products, such as contact addresses and emergency telephone numbers.

Help with Health Hazard Classifications

Included in SDScribe™ is the powerful Suggestion Wizard, which identifies potential health hazard classifications associated with the ingredients of the product. It can automatically add the GHS classifications, pictograms, health and precautionary statements, and signal word. Many personal care products have components such as sodium metasilicate pentahydrate or sodium laureth sulfate which are harmful to the eyes and skin. SDScribe™ will perform calculations and compare mixture concentrations to the prescribed cutoff limits.
