The legislative status of cosmetic ingredients in the EU is often updated, and restrictions on specific ingredients may change over time.

Additionally, the webinar addresses specific deadlines related to microplastic restrictions in personal care products and future changes related to labeling of new additional fragrance allergens in cosmetic products.
