Cosmetics EU CPSR certification explanation
In 2013, the EU Cosmetics Regulation (EC) No /2009 was officially implemented.
Since then, all cosmetics entering the EU market must undergo a safety assessment and submit a Cosmetic Product Safety Report (CPSR).
CPSR is an independent cosmetic safety assessment opinion and one of the materials that all EU cosmetic products must provide before they are marketed.
The CPSR report includes two parts: cosmetic safety information and cosmetic safety assessment. The former is all the data collected for safety assessment, and the latter is the opinion of the safety assessor on product safety.
Therefore, CPSR requires a series of correct and complete test reports, information documents and other materials.
CPSR requires the submission of a series of accurate and complete materials, including:
1. Application form, including product name, product description (e.g. physical state, color, intended use) information;
2. A list of ingredients, including the CAS number and percentage of each ingredient, and the intended effect of each ingredient;
3. MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) of all ingredients;
4. Certificate of Compliance (COA) or specification;
5. 26 kinds of allergy flavor test report and IFRA (International Fragrance Association) certificate;
6. Microbiological quality test report of the product;
7. The preservative challenge test report of the product;
