The cosmetic space has about 33,000+ cosmetic ingredients and majority of them are chemicals or botanicals. With growing scientific knowledge and sensitivity towards product safety, the industry is witnessing more mature and stringent guidelines by the regulatory authorities for cosmetic ingredients e.g., preservatives, colorants, and UV filters to ensure consumer safety.
With evolving regulations, the industry often faces numerous challenges such as lack of regulatory compliance information and safety data, varied threshold limits, and restrictions in acceptability of the ingredient by health agencies. This may result in issues like non-compliance, re-labeling, missed product launches, product recalls, and many more. Freyr brings in a unique technology driven regulatory platform iREADY to solve all your regulatory queries around ingredients in a single click.
Freyr iREADY is an ingredient database platform that enables manufacturers and brand owners to understand the regulatory requirements for ingredients across global markets. It supports proactive regulatory compliance observance and management of product formulae in different markets. iREADY can be used for new product development as well as life cycle management of existing products to ensure continued compliance.
