: How do I register my business name?Answer
: If you are selling your soaps and cosmetics under a name other than your given legal name, then you need to register it as a business name.
You don't want to register a business name already in use. Therefore, before registering a business name you should do a free online search in your state. You can also perform a federal search for trademarked business names by using http://tmsearch.uspto.gov
Registering your business name can be done with your county's clerk's office or with your state government depending on your location.
