Our process


Inventorising information

First, we chart which product information is already available. This data is reviewed by our safety assessors. They know exactly which data is sufficient, and what else needs to be submitted.


Supplementing data where needed

Next, we get to work supplementing your product information. We make sure there's no missing or incomplete data. This way, we can quickly get started with the Cosmetics Safety Assessment itself.


Cosmetic driver's license

Finally, our experts perform the Cosmetic Safety Assessment, after which the PIF is drawn up and a notification is sent in to the CPNP. Hooray! Your product can hit the road... Erm... the shelves.

PIFs are legally valid in the entire EU

Every cosmetic product on the European market requires a PIF. This file contains all information on the product, from production to labeling. We know how to draw up such a file, and have done so 6500+ times, successfully.

With our experience drawing up PIFs is a piece of cake

It’s our mission to let you sell lots of safe products, quickly. We are 12 times faster than competitors in bringing cosmetics to market. We succeed in drawing up good PIFs every single time.

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.
