Vendor Memberships in the HSCG are for those businesses that sell products or services
to handcrafted soap and cosmetic makers. Vendor Membership is in the name of the business
(rather than an individual). Representatives of Vendor Member businesses may not hold office
(Board of Director or President) as the membership is in the business name, not that of an individual.

their personal goals and business model. Additional information about the various membership benefits for
Vendor Memberships can be found
