Consumer Product Safety Testing

Prohibited and Restricted Substances in the Home, Beauty, and Personal Care Market

Throughout the supply chain, the introduction of “harmful chemicals” or “substances of concern” must be controlled and where possible, eliminated. Through the introduction of regulations such as California’s Prop 65,  the European Union’s REACH initiative and the concerns related the potential  health effects of BPA and Phthalates, the market has become more highly regulated, a complex situation for companies to navigate through. Manufacturers, distributors, and importers of personal care and beauty products must satisfy the regulations and guidelines for the control of contaminants and ingredients in products which are documented in both European and US guidelines.
