Safety Assessment of Cosmetic Ingredients and Products by CEHTRA Let CEHTRA help you meet the new challenges facing your cosmetic products and ingredients.

The new European cosmetic regulation is highly demanding

Since 1976 cosmetic products have been regulated under Directive 76/768/ EC. July 2013 has been a milestone in the history of cosmetics with the full implementation of the new (EC) Regulation no. 1223/2009 marking a paradigm in the way that cosmetics are regulated in Europe and harmonising Member State regulations.

Cosmetic product safety assessment has been reinforced with a more demanding safety report format prepared by a suitably qualified safety assessor. The cosmetic dossier has to demonstrate ingredient safety, justify the presence of impurities and show the overall cosmetic product safety. It has also to be updated regularly.
