Cosmetics Training Courses

Cosmetics are constituted mixtures of chemical compounds derived from either natural sources, or synthetically created ones. A number of regulations apply to cosmetics globally: in the European Union, the manufacture, labelling, and supply of cosmetics and personal care products are regulated by Regulation EC 1223/2009. In the US the FDA legislation of cosmetics is covered by the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act and internationally there are ISO standards (ISO 22716:2007) on the safe manufacturing of cosmetics products under Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) regime 

The definition of a cosmetic is based on “intended use,” which is influenced by product claims, consumer perception, and formulation. Any product that falls into the cosmetics category is subject to legislation and regulations.

Some products meet the definitions of both cosmetics and drugs. This may happen when a product has two intended uses. For example, toothpastes that contain fluoride, deodorants that are also antiperspirants, and moisturizers and makeup marketed with sun-protection claims. Such products must comply with the requirements for both cosmetics and drugs.

Our series of courses delivered by experts will assist you in complying with the various global regulations and help you navigate the best route to market. They will cover such topics as: Cosmetogivilance, Good Manfuacturing Practices, Product Safety, Labelling and Product Information Requirements and the role of the Responsible Person.
