What are Cosmetics?

Cosmetics are any Substance or Mixture of Substances, manufactured, sold, or represented for use in cleansing, improving, or altering the complexion, skin, hair, or teeth and includes deodorants and perfumes. For Cosmetic Products to be placed on certain Markets, manufacturers must comply with strict Regulations and Directives which are in place to ensure Human Safety and to Protect Consumers from Misleading Claims concerning Efficacy and other characteristics of Cosmetic Products. The Regulations may also inform manufacturers of specific Restricted or Prohibited Substances. There are several Cosmetic Regulations, Directives and Guidelines on the International Regulatory Landscape which ensure the Safety and Efficacy of Cosmetics.



Law in the European Union and Great Britain  

All Cosmetics made and sold in the European Union and in Great Britain, whether by large companies or individuals, must comply with the strict Cosmetics Laws in place to ensure consumer Safety. In the European Union, the manufacture of Cosmetics is Regulated by the EU Cosmetic Products Regulation (EC) No.  1223/2009 (EU CPR). Schedule 34 of the Product Safety and Metrology Statutory Instrument determines the UK Cosmetics Regulation (UK CR) for Cosmetics marketed in Great Britain (England, Wales, and Scotland).


Law in the USA and Canada  

The most important laws applicable to Cosmetic Products in the United States of America are the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act), which prescribes the minimum Regulatory Standards for Cosmetics and applies across all states, and the Fair Packaging and Labelling Act (FPLA). There are also some state-specific Regulations that can be more stringent than the FD&C Act, such as the California Proposition 65 (Prop 65). All Cosmetics Products marketed in Canada must meet the requirements of the Food and Drugs Act, the Cosmetic Regulations as well as the Consumer Packaging and Labelling Act.
