Cosmetic Safety Substantiation
Cosmetics manufacturers are obliged to ensure the safety of cosmetics under customary use and reasonably foreseeable conditions of misuse.
In the US, a cosmetic product, the safety of which has not adequately been substantiated, must bear the conspicuous statement “Warning – The safety of this product has not been determined” on the Principal Display Panel (PDP) of the outer packaging. Evidence of safety in the form of an assessment by a qualified person, who has taken into consideration the general toxicological profile of the ingredients, their chemical structure and their level of exposure, is accepted in both the EU and US.
Intertek also offers exclusive healthcare and beauty product research and development solutions as well as production and supply chain strategies to ensure the utmost quality and safety of your cosmetics, toiletries, Over-the-Counter (OTC) drugs, therapeutic goods, and other products.
