"In Focus" with William Shattner

In 2015, the Handcrafted Soap and Cosmetic Guild was featured on the television program "In Focus" with William Shattner. The show segment covered both the history and current status of handcrafted soap, and the role that the Handcrafted Soap and Cosmetic Guild is playing in the industry.

The video was extremely well received, and gave excellent insight into the handcrafted soap and cosmetic industry.

Thank you, contributors

We would like to thank the many members who supplied the handcrafted soap and cosmetic featured in this video, and the suppliers who provided the materials for the demonstrations.
