Safe by Design: Cosmetic Products and the EU Law


The EU Cosmetic Products Regulation (EC) No. 1223/2009 (CPR) governs how cosmetic products are made and placed on the market.  It is the most stringent set of laws for the cosmetics industry in the world, requiring that cosmetics must be safe for human health. In order to satisfy requirements stipulated in the CPR, a highly comprehensive safety assessment must be carried out by an appropriately qualified professional.

CTPA and XCellR8 are running a must-attend joint training event for anyone working in cosmetic product development: Principles of Cosmetic Safety Assessment Using Alternatives to Animal Testing. 

Introducing the event will be Caroline Rainsford, Head of Scientific and Environmental Services at CTPA.  Caroline will set the scene for the rest of the day by providing an overview of the EU regulatory framework with respect to cosmetic safety and the animal testing ban.

Caroline has a Masters degree in Chemistry from the University of Oxford.  Caroline joined CTPA in June 2016 and she represents CTPA on several committees at Cosmetics Europe and is the Chair of the Ingredient Monitoring and Assessment Expert Team, bringing together knowledge and expertise from a variety of ingredient issues.
