CTPA Infosheets and Stakeholder Engagement

Infosheets and Infocards

CTPA has created clear and simple visual documents to explain important concepts within the cosmetics industry.  These documents are relevant not only for our industry, but also for any external stakeholders such as Government departments, sister associations, media that want to learn more about how our industry works.

For consumer and media-facing infosheets on topics such as sun protection, allergy and more, please see our thefactsabout website.

Safety Information Sheet for Cosmetics

Finished cosmetic products (ready for supply to consumers) are exempt from the requirements of the Classification, Labelling and Packaging (CLP) Regulation; therefore, there is no requirement to supply Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for cosmetic products.  However, it must also be recognised that there are legal requirements under Health and Safety legislation.  CTPA has therefore created a simple template to supply relevant safety information about cosmetics, should it be needed in certain circumstances (e.g. salons).

Stakeholder Engagement

CTPA works closely with the UK Government and Regulators to contribute data and perspectives from the cosmetics industry.  

CTPA Claims and Advertising Stakeholders Group

The CTPA Claims and Advertising Stakeholders Group aims to identify and address issues related to cosmetic claims, in particular related to the cosmetic borderline, advertising, new regulatory provisions, new trends and innovations.  The goal of the group is to develop a position in collaboration with the cosmetics industry on key issues, to promote alignment between the industry and with the relevant external stakeholders involved in claims and advertising for cosmetics – namely the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) and Clearcast.
