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.
