Cosmetic Regulation in the EU
The European Union Cosmetics Directive defines a cosmetic as “any substance or preparation intended to be placed in contact with the various external parts of the human body (epidermis, hair system, nails, lips and external genital organs) or with the teeth and the mucous membranes of the oral cavity with a view exclusively or mainly to cleaning them, perfuming them, changing their appearance and/or correcting body odours and/or protecting them or keeping them in good condition.
“The European Union requires that cosmetic products placed on the EU market be safe; that is, they “must not cause damage to human health when applied under normal or reasonably foreseeable conditions of use.” As in the U.S., manufacturers are responsible for ensuring that cosmetic products comply with the law before they are marketed. The manufacturer or importer of cosmetics is responsible for demonstrating that the product is safe for its intended use.
Regulations are enforced at the national level, and each country in the EU has an authoritative body that is responsible for upholding compliance.

The 'new normal' for cosmetics
With the progressive return to normality, one fact has been verified: people wear much less makeup in general. But it seems that there is one group of products within the sector that is getting a lot of benefits. And the winner products in the 'new normal' are Eye Cosmetics: latest sales reports confirm that sales of mascara, eye shadows, pencils and concealers have doubled. And it looks like eyes, since they are going to be the only visible part of our face, will become a lot more important for cosmetics users.
We have to notice that now entering a perfumery or a cosmetic point of sale to try fragrances, makeup ranges or new treatments is going to be a new experience in which technology is going to play a fundamental role.
The most personalized services will prevail in the new cosmetics, using both artificial intelligence technology and technology that allows our experts to get closer to our online consumer. In addition, it is likely that we will not try the makeup of cosmetic firms as we have done until now - on the surface of a hand, using a touch of the brush straight on the face, without any previous sterilization...
We are entering a new normal for everyone, also for cosmetics.
