Cosmetic Products Regulation in the EU

Since 2003, we have been providing regulatory and scientific support to the cosmetics industry.  In this time, we established a wide-spread network in the industry including its associations and the governmental world. We acquired detailed knowledge of all relevant national, European and global regulations and gained a profound understanding of the pertinent guidelines and recommendations around cosmetic products. 

For the European market, we successfully prepared  more than 60 SCCS safety dossiers for a variety of challenging cosmetics ingredients, including UV filters, preservatives and hair dyes, also nanomaterials, products of botanical origin and CMR categorized substances. We are a member of CCE – Cosmetic Consultants Europe.
