Both brands and authorities expressed their opinions on cosmetic regulation

Two days of conference were planned in order to allow the industrials and the competent authorities to communicate on regulatory matters and stakes. Among those present, renowned brands of the cosmetic industry such as L’Oréal or even Unilever as well as the ANSM (French agency responsible for assessing the benefits and risks associated with the use of health products throughout their life-cycle) and the FEBEA (the French federation for beauty companies). Attendees were numerous and the congress even registered a participation record for this 2018 edition.

Clarification on hot topics & Recommendations from ANSM

Throughout the congress, numerous hot topics were tackled, for instance, the implementation of new guidelines on packaging. Amidst the more popular, Brexit and its impacts on European companies. For now, uncertainty remains. Nonetheless, specialists suggest the obligation for industrials to have a Responsible Person (RP) in the United Kingdom.

ANSM also presented its post-2018-audit conclusions and laid out the aspects to be monitored in 2019. The national agency shed light on the regulation and warned the professionals about product personalisation as well as DIY (“Do It Yourself”) products. Although very trendy these days, bringing these products into compliance remains a tricky subject still.
