Public and Products Liability Insurance for Soap and Candle Makers

AUZi® as Online Insurance Innovators have tailored an all in one Liability package for Candle and Soap Makers

Insurance is not a compulsory requirement for a lot of businesses, but when it comes to Soaps and Candles, it is definitely a worthwhile purchase. In the unlikely event of a claim, a consumer wants to sue you for property damage or bodily injury caused by your Soaps or Candles. This is where Liability Insurance comes into it’s own.

What is covered under this policy?

Public Liability – for property damage and bodily injury caused by your Soap/Candle business.

Product Liability – for property damage and bodily injury caused by products you’ve supplied.

Our Premiums start from just $125 for 3 months cover, with a 6 or 12 month policy option as well.
