Helena Eixarch, TSG Consulting, had an article published in October 2017 in Household and Personal Care Today.
The correct classification of a product which could be both a cosmetic or a biocide (a borderline product) is essential as this will determine the applicable legal framework. A wrong product classification can lead to product withdrawal from the market and increased costs. Among other factors, product presentation can be key in the classification of borderline products.
