Safety assessments of cosmetics are getting more and more important in the EU.
Also in countries where safety assessment is not legally required, manufacturers want to make sure to bring safe products to market for the consumers.
In the EU, the law requires that a safety assessor who is personally responsible for the safety of a cosmetic product has to be appointed.
This means that the product must meet all requirements of the EC Cosmetics Regulation in terms of its effects on human health in the event of normal or reasonably foreseeable use of a cosmetic product. When preparing a safety assessment, first of all, the expert must review all existing basic requirements of cosmetic legislation (substance regulations, labelling provisions etc.). The more extensive assessment must be in conformity with Article 10 and Annex I of the EC Cosmetics Regulation.
In this connection, the toxicological profiles of all ingredients and the exposure conditions to be expected must be taken into account.
This is the reason, care-and-science is on its way to get a certificate as DGK Safety Assessor – we take safety seriously.
Just ask us if you have got any questions about safety conditions of your cosmetic product!
