Cosmetic Products

Is my product a cosmetic?

A cosmetic product is legally defined by Article 2 of the EU and UK Cosmetics Regulations. The definition can be broken down into three parts: 1. A cosmetic must be a substance or mixture; 2. A cosmetic shall be applied to specific areas of the human body; 3. A cosmetic must have specific cosmetic functions. A product must meet all three elements of this definition to be a cosmetic product. Use this tool to find out if your product is a cosmetic.
