If you make products which are sold within the UK and EU, you are legally obliged under 'Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 30 November 2009 on cosmetic products' to have performed a Cosmetic Product Safety Report (CPSR) on your product. The report should be carried out by a person with the relevant qualifications and experience.
In 2013, these rules got tougher with the onus on the producer to declare their products are being placed on the market. These regulations affect every product you sell, whether it to be to family and friends, at a market stall, within Spa’s or at a retail outlet or on the internet. Your product will require a Cosmetic Product Safety Report.
Due to the growing needs of our customers, we have our own in-house Toxicologist to write Cosmetic Product Safety Reports for all ingredient and bases sold by ourselves and perform any physical testing (such as Stability and Preservative Effiacty Testing) if required.
The 2013 Regulations require certain products to have a Preservative Efficacy Test and Stability Test before the Cosmetic Product Safety Report can be made. We also offer these services at very competitive rates for all of our customer, new or old (Please see the individual test pages for these services to determine whether your product requires these tests).
The toxicology report, microbiological testing and stability testing should form part of your “Product Information Pack”. This pack is relatively easy and simple to prepare, although a little time consuming. For customers that feel unsure about their obligations under EU laws, we hold training courses at our headquarters in Croydon. The courses are friendly and full of different abilities from those that have never made products before to industry professionals. More details on our courses can be found by clicking here. Discounts are available on our report and testing services for those that have attended our EU Regulations and GMP courses.
The Information we require to create a Cosmetic Product Safety Report
If your product does not require a Preservative Effiacy Test or Stability Testing, we do not need to physically see your product in order to create a Safety Assessment. If you require the Preservative Efficacy or Stability Test, then you will need to send us your product for testing (details on address, amount and packaging found further on, on this page). If you have testing from a third pary or historical data from alternative sources, we can produce your Safety Assessment without you providing samples of your product, we will require your testing data.
To produce your safety assessment we need to know the ingredients that you are putting into your product and the percentage of each ingredient.
In order to verify your ingredients we will check against an MSDS / SDS for each ingredient and a COA (if applicable). As we only produce CPSR's for ingredients and bases purchased by Naturallythinking then we will have this information on file, so you have no need to send us MSDS or COA.
Please note our price is for up to 20 individual ingredients (i.e. individual latin names, so for example Phenoxyethanol & Ethylhexylglycerin will count as 2 ingredients). Products with 20 -40 ingredients will be charged an additional £49 when the CPSR is completed. Products in excess of 40 ingredients will be quoted seperately.
If you are manufacturing a product from individual Naturallythinking ingredients, we need to know each ingredient, if you are using a Naturallythinking base, you just need to tell us the base you are using and the ingredients you are adding in addition to this base., for example:
For all formulations, in addition to the product details, we will need to know the name you are giving to the product, you registered address, and the purpose of the product.
What to Expect from Us
Once you submit your data for your Cosmetic Product Safety Report, our toxicologist will initially look over your formula*. The regulations make statements on the maximum percentages of many products as well as their effects when combined with other ingredients.
If our toxicologist finds any problems with your formulation, they will contact and tell you where your product breaks EU regulations. You should then reformulate your product and resubmit your revised formulation**.
When the basic formulation is created, our toxicologist will prepare your toxicology report. In the toxicology report they will outline the following areas:
- Toxicological Content, with ingredient toxicology reviews
- Safety Labeling Advice
- Product Analysis
- Labeling Suggestion for Ingredients
- Toxicological and Regulatory Review
- Provide a Sign off
As part of the analysis, our toxicology report will also include any specific details about warnings and precautions you should include on your label.
PLEASE NOTE WE CANNOT COMPLETE THE COSMETIC PRODUCT SAFETY ASSESSMENT WITHOUT MICROBIOLOGICAL PRESERVATIVE TESTING IF YOUR PRODUCT CONTAINS WATER and CANNOT MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS ON SHELF LIFE WITHOUT STABILITY TESTING or HISTORICAL DATA.
Products we will not provide a Cosmetic CPSR for
