Cosmetic ingredients are globally regulated by regional laws and regulations.
In the European Union they are regulated under the Cosmetics Regulation.
One of the main objectives of the Cosmetics Directive is to give clear guidance on what requirements a safe cosmetic product should fulfil in order to freely circulate within the EU, without pre-market authorisation.
The Cosmetics Directive aims to guarantee the safety of cosmetic products for human use.
This safety relates to composition, packaging and information and it falls totally under the responsibility of the producer or the importer into the EU who is responsible for marketing liability.
