Safely bring your product to market in 3 simple steps

SkinConsult goes past ‘approved or not approved’. We take you by the hand and bring your product idea to life. This way you’ll always make it to market, safely.

01.

Concept

We assess your concept to find out which claims you are allowed to make. We also perform a first safety check, based on the product formula.

02.

File compilation

Now we do a safety assessment and create a file. If necessary, we do the stability and challenge tests.

03.

Hit the shelves!

After approval of the label, we place a product notification in the EU webportal. Now you can start selling with confidence.

"My last scent included a hint of basil. Turns out, the basil oil contained a chemical that can cause cancer. Through an initial assessment by SkinConsult I found about this early in the process. This saves me time and resources better spent developing other products."

Keep your products on the shelves and your end users safe

Your cosmetics are recalled, too, when they turn out to be unsafe. Except when you work with SkinConsult, of course.

Any questions on your side?

How long does it take, on average, to bring a product to market safely?

This depends on the amount of product information available already. This is why we divide projects into week-long sprints, to be booked in flexibly.

On average, it takes 4 week-long sprints to bring a product to market safely. The biggest bottleneck is whether shelf life has been tested yet; a shelf life test can take 2-4 months.

I was visited by the authorities and my products aren't compliant. What now?

Don’t panic, you won’t be the first. Our team of experts is ready to help you get back on track.

For disapproved products like these we have a special fast-track services to a) find out what the problem is, b) come up with a step-by-step plan to solve the problem and c) actually fixing the problem.

We can also help you communicatie with the authorities, so you’re not going up against them alone.

Why would I have my cosmetics products tested in the first place?

As Responsible Person you are legally obliged to sell safe products. You can prove your products are save by doing a safety assessment.

This safety assessment needs to be done according to industry standards, so the authorities can check it easily.

Which legislation applies to my cosmetics products?

The basic legislation is the Cosmetic Regulation. This is a European legislation that applies to all cosmetics in Europe, called EC 1223/2009.

The second important piece of legislation is the Cosmetics Claim Regulation EC 655/2013, which states what cosmetic claims may look like.

In addition to these two laws, there are also a number of other legislations that may (in)directly apply, such as the Aerosols Directive 75/324/EEC for cosmetics sold in aerosol cans.
