EU: New labelling requirement for cosmetics

2222222222EU – As of July 11, 2013 the labelling of cosmetic items is governed exclusively by Article 19 of the Cosmetics Directive, which replaces the formerly applicable “Cosmetic Guideline” and which dictates that certain information is printed on the containers and packaging of cosmetic items in a non-wipeable, easily legible and clearly visible manner. These details include among others the name or the company and address of the person, who is responsible for the product, the country of origin in the case of imported products, the weight or volume of the contents when filled and the date the cosmetic item can be used up until, provided it is stored properly.
