Cosmetics Law

The EU Cosmetics Regulation (EC) No. 1223/2009 defines European cosmetics legislation.

This regulation governs aspects such as labelling, ingredients, advertising and distribution of cosmetic products. With regard to the advertising of such products in particular, the Cosmetics Regulation is supplemented by Regulation (EU) No. 655/2013, which sets out common criteria for advertising claims in connection with cosmetic products.

Additional national regulations supplement the cosmetics legislation. This leads to a large number of information and labelling obligations that are often difficult to keep track of.

The law firm advises clients on the following areas in particular:

  • EU Cosmetics Regulation

  • Cosmetics guidelines

  • Food Safety and Consumer Protection Act (LMSVG)

  • Cosmetics Implementing Regulation

  • Placing cosmetics on the market

  • Guideline for the manufacture of cosmetic products in accordance with the principles of "Good Manufacturing Practice"

  • Responsible Person

  • Product notification

  • Framework formulation

  • Advertising claims

  • Contracting / distibution agreements

  • Customs law
