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.

Remember to follow the experts advise
For some time now -and with increasing emphasis- dermatologists and pharmacists have been making people aware of the need to maintain a sensible and responsible attitude towards the sun. Not only in summer but at all times of the year. It is important in fact to protect ourselves every time we go out into the street.
The most frequent consequence of bad exposure to the sun is sunburn. Sunburn, when mild, causes reddening or sensitivity on the skin, affecting the most superficial layers. But if the exposure is more intense, damage may occur in the deeper layers, reaching the dermis in the case of second-degree burns that may be accompanied by blisters, edema and pain.
That is why it is so important to follow the advice of the expert voices. Remember:
- Never get your skin exposed directly to the sun rays. Use the adequate sunscreen for your skin type to protect you.
- Avoid the hours of máximum solar radiation. And if you can't due to your working responsabilities, use protection clothes such as gloves and a protective visor or hat.
