LEGAL REQUIREMENTS

Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 30 November 2009 regulates all the necessary tests required to launch cosmetics products into the market.
The Regulation is valid from 11 July 2013 and introduced a number of new legal requirements for producers and distributors of cosmetic products

Why should we test cosmetic products?

To be sure that…

  • the product is launched into the market according to the European Standards
  • you ensure consumer safety
  • you provide high quality products
  • the product will not irritate children’s sensitive skin
  • anti-wrinkle cream really reduces wrinkles
