Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) of cosmetic products are mandatory in the EU, and are highly recommended by many other countries, such as the United States.
Rigorous adherence to Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) minimizes the risk of adulteration or misbranding of cosmetic products. A useful reference “Guidelines for Good Manufacturing Practice of Cosmetic Products (GMPC)” was published by the Council of Europe in 1995. Similar references are also available from United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Cosmetic Toiletry and Perfumery Association (Colipa).
