化妆品的自信

英国及欧洲法律 that ensure the safety of these types of product call them 'cosmetics' 而且 this is the term we use throughout this website. Cosmetics include shampoos; hair dyes; 润肤霜 而且 cleansers; anti-ageing creams; antiperspirants; 防晒霜; oral hygiene products such as toothpastes; 而且 fine fragrances 而且 other perfumery products.

Cosmetics are applied directly to skin, hair 而且 nails so it is crucial that they are safe to use. Years of scientific research 而且 testing goes into making each 而且 every item in our bathroom cabinets 而且 make-up bags. It takes whole teams of scientists to develop just one new product.

就安全而言, it makes no difference whether a chemical is natural, 人造(合成), 从有机种植的来源, 或者来自可回收的资源等等.  The body really cannot tell the source of an ingredient 而且 this makes no difference to how our bodies process 而且 use chemicals.  All ingredients must be safe to use, as must be the final cosmetic product.  The safety laws controlling cosmetic products are extremely stringent.  In the UK, the manufacture 而且 supply of cosmetics is governed by the 英国化妆品条例 遵守是强制性的.

而英国已经脱离欧盟, nothing has changed in terms of the safety of cosmetic 而且 personal care products. 英国法规 符合严格的欧盟规则和 importantly the 动物实验 bans on ingredients 而且 products have remained firmly in place.

谁来检查安全?

Every new product must undergo a full safety assessment before it is allowed on the shelves 而且 this is a strict requirement under the UK cosmetics law, which also provides guidance on how this safety assessment must be carried out 而且 by whom. It also specifies that cosmetic products must not damage our health .

Safety assessments may only be carried out by certain qualified professionals 而且 must cover the finished product, 所有的成分, how it was manufactured 而且 how it will be used, by whom 而且 in combination with which other type of products. The requirements for safety assessors are stringent; the assessor must be specifically qualified 而且 have appropriate experience to make the assessment.

These assessments may be inspected at any time by the enforcement authorities, 通常是英国的贸易标准, which means companies are accountable for every decision they make.

There are three layers to the safety assessment process:

  • firstly, there is UK legislation that requires cosmetics to be safe;
  • 其次, there is the professional safety assessor who personally signs to say the cosmetic product is safe;
  • thirdly, there is the control by authorities checking on products placed on the market.

科学的发展

Often the media pick up on press releases from new scientific studies. It is important that the whole paper is analysed to ensure the reporting is accurate. The cosmetics industry takes its responsibility to consumers very seriously 而且 is keen to investigate any new scientific study or report to see what implications, 如果有任何, 化妆品有. Whilst new science is of interest 而且 academic importance, it is very important to put the science into the context of the wealth of research already available.
