Import cosmetics into Europe with a REACH only representative

REACH representative regulation considers also cosmetics as chemical substances. So, to import cosmetics into the European Union, all foreign cosmetics manufacturers must comply with REACH regulations.

This regulation protects consumers and makes sure that all cosmetic products on the European market are safe.

The REACH representative is aware of the substances in the cosmetics, and know how these substances behave both within the cosmetics they are used, and on their own.

REACH is the EU regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 concerning the Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals. It came into force on 1 June 2007.

For cosmetics manufacturers, safety should be the main principle in everything they do. Across all the operations, research, development and innovation.

The Reach representative can evaluate all these criteria within the European legislations. REACH regulations can impact both chemical raw materials and finished cosmetics products.

The REACH Regulation places compliance requirements on producers importing or manufacturing cosmetics and other personal care products in Europe.

The requirements for cosmetics industries include, but are not limited to: pre-registration of substances and ingredients, chemical testing and evaluation, registration of substances, management of supply chain, management of downstream users, and possible restriction or notification requirements for chemicals in their products.
