Cosmetics Compliance

Global Cosmetics Compliance

Developing a cosmetic formula is an important step when considering the launch of a new product. At such an early stage of its development, the project is still fragile and requires proper care and wise decisions. This is much like the seed of a giant tree, which must be planted in good soil.

On top of its performance, its cost, its marketing potential, and many other aspects, the formula must comply with the legislation of all targeted countries and regions before it gets placed on the markets. This applies to all cosmetic products regardless of whether it is skincare, makeup, or another category. In addition to the product formula, the product’s toxicological profile and label are also part of the regulatory process.

Achieving regulatory compliance is a must in order to avoid any issues with or penalties from the relevant authorities and to ensure the safety of products for consumer use. It also reassures importers and distributors, which tremendously facilitates the export project. Ensuring compliance in all countries where the cosmetic product is sold is therefore critical.

As specialists in international regulations and cosmetic products, BIORIUS supports cosmetics brands in launching their products in various geographical areas by proposing turnkey solutions in a one-shop-stop perspective.


Global Formula Check & Formula Review

BIORIUS developed a large catalog of services dedicated to cosmetic brands. This includes a safety and regulatory evaluation of the formula for each and every targeted country. This is a fast and cost-effective solution to guarantee the regulatory potential of a cosmetic formula.

Our Global Formula Check & Global Formula Review services allow a cosmetics brand to review its cosmetic formulae for several regions/countries at once. Our experts in international regulations examine the product identity, the proper registration of its ingredients in relevant legal inventories, and the compliance of each ingredient with relevant regulations, bans, restrictions, purity criteria, etc.

While the Global Formula Check consists of a rapid regulatory review of the product for the desired region(s), the Global Formula Review is a more comprehensive option that includes additional verifications:

Global Formula Check:

  • Regulatory assessment of all ingredients

Global Formula Review:

  • Regulatory assessment of all ingredients
  • Safety assessment of all ingredients
  • Creation of the list of ingredients (in the required format for each country)
  • Verification of warnings and directions for use

When several countries/regions are targeted, our regulatory experts can often prepare a list of ingredients that simultaneously complies with all relevant pieces of legislation.

For some specific countries, the Global Formula Review also includes a check of the raw materials.


Global Label Check & Global Label Review

Likewise, a great deal of attention should be paid to mandatory consumer information and marketing communications. Each country comes with its own legal requirements and a claim totally acceptable in one country may lead to serious compliance issues in another. When the intent is to develop a product with a high internationalization potential, the best approach is probably to align marketing needs and regulatory obligations at an early stage.

Our Global Label Check & Global Label Review services allow a cosmetics brand to review its artworks for several regions/countries at once. Our experts in international regulations examine the product identity, every element to be labeled according to the relevant pieces of legislation, and the marketing communications.

While the Global Label Check consists of a rapid regulatory review of the product for the desired region(s), the Global Label Review is a more comprehensive option that includes additional verifications:

Global Label Check:

For the primary label, secondary label and leaflet:

  • Evaluation of the mandatory consumer information
  • Evaluation of the marketing communication

Global Label Review:

For the primary label, secondary label and leaflet:

  • Evaluation of the mandatory consumer information
  • Evaluation of the marketing communication and validation of tests used to substantiate claims
  • Advanced recommendations to update problematic claims without changing the original meaning
  • Creation of the list of ingredients (in the required format for each country)
  • Verification of warnings and directions for use

When several countries/regions are targeted, our regulatory experts can often prepare an INCI list that simultaneously complies with all relevant pieces of legislation.
