Overview

Safety has the utmost importance while formulating and marketing cosmetic products. Different countries have varied criteria for the safety assessment of cosmetic products. For instance, as per the European cosmetic regulation EU 1223/2009 mandate, a safety assessment is required for every cosmetic product placed in Europe and a detailed report called the ‘Cosmetic Product Safety Report (CPSR) should consequently be signed by a designated person. Preparation of the CPSR is a highly technical activity which requires a thorough understanding of chemistry and toxicology. With updated rules and guidance, safety assessment without conducting animal testing has gained significance.

Each region has their own set of rules for safety assessment. Safety Data Sheet (SDS) authoring should be done in line with United Nation’s Globally Harmonized System (GHS), to detail the dangers, composition, and safe handling and disposal of the chemicals and substances used in the cosmetic products. It is essential to outline SDS clearly for the retailers who carry these products.

Likewise, Turkey (which utilizes a format similar to that of the EU), ASEAN countries, China, and other parts of the world have their own technical requirements while preparing the safety documents of cosmetic products and ingredients used.
