Safety Assessment

Consumers and regulatory authorities demand evidence that your cosmetics and personal care items are safe.

Before launching a new product, it must undergo a safety assessment – Cosmetic Product Safety Report (CPSR) in the EU and Toxicological Risk Assessment (TRA) in the US, Canada, Australia & ASEAN countries.

Our experienced safety assessors look at:

  • Formulation – ensure a product does not pose a risk to consumers under normal or reasonably foreseeable conditions
  • Ingredients – look for possible negative interactions within the formulation
  • Potential hazards of individual ingredients
  • Usage – how consumers will probably use the product (e.g. how often, etc.)
