Cosmetics - regulatory compliance
Companies supplying and marketing cosmetics and personal care products globally must ensure they meet the different and stringent requirements that countries impose on manufacturers, distributors and suppliers. TSG Consulting will help you identify the most direct route to achieving compliance, providing guidance and support from regulatory approval to compliance and defence of cosmetic and personal care products.

Regulation (EC) 1223/2009 dictates the ingredient restrictions and labelling requirements, as well as the safety standards cosmetic products must fulfil before being placed on the EU market. The regulation impacts manufacturers, distributors, retailers, packers, contract manufacturers and importers.
In the US, cosmetic products and ingredients are regulated under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) and the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act (FPLA). In addition to FDA, cosmetics and personal care products are subject to state regulations, particularly the State of California’s Proposition 65.
The Cosmetic Regulations of the Food and Drugs Act require that cosmetics sold in Canada be manufactured, prepared, preserved, packed and stored under sanitary conditions. In addition, manufacturers must notify Health Canada that they are selling the product and provide a list of its ingredients.
Covering the cosmetics and personal care industry for over 10 years, TSG has worked with many SME and multi-national companies across the world. From makeup, hair care or nail care products to soaps and lotions, our consultants have the scientific and regulatory expertise to help clients successfully bring their products to market.
