Safety Assessment

All cosmetic products placed on the EU market need to have a Safety Assessment Report (SAR).

SARs are issued by Safety Assessors, who certify the safety of the cosmetic product according to the Cosmetics Regulation 1223/2009.

Safety Assessment for Cosmetic Products

The Safety Assessment is a toxicological evaluation of your product’s documentation, from the formula to the necessary tests (Challenge test, Stability test, Compatibility test, etc). It addresses multiple points such as:

  • Normal and reasonably foreseeable use of the cosmetic product
  • Exposure to the finished cosmetic product
  • Exposure to the ingredients
  • Toxicological profile of the substances.

Furthermore, it may also indicate the warnings to be stated in the cosmetic product’s labels, among others.
