Some examples of cosmetics include deodorants, shampoos and soaps, hair dyes, toothpaste and make-up.
European legislation, through the EU Cosmetics Regulation ((EC) No. 1223/2009), establishes standards for cosmetic products that are available on the market.
Specifically, the regulation
- strengthens safety requirements for cosmetic products
- places specific requirements on manufacturers in relation to the preparation of product safety reports prior to introducing products to the market
- introduces the concept of a ‘responsible person’
- centralises notification of products using the EU Cosmetic Product Notification Portal (CPNP)
- mandates reporting of serious undesirable effects (SUE) and sets out new rules for the use of nanomaterials in cosmetic products
We provide a range of services to the cosmetics sector, including preparation of product safety reports, SDS preparation and CLP advice.
