Supplying branded products
I want to supply my own brand of cosmetic products to the UK market. What rules do I need to follow?
These pages will be updated in the near future to reflect changes after Brexit.Start
A cosmetic product is legally defined as:
“…any substance or mixture intended to be placed in contact with the external parts of the human body (epidermis, hair system, nails, lips and external genital organs) or with the teeth and the mucous membranes of the oral cavity with a view exclusively or mainly to cleaning them, perfuming them, changing their appearance, protecting them, keeping them in good condition or correcting body odours.”
To help you decide if your product fits this definition you can first use the decision tree “Is my product a cosmetic?”
