How it works
The Regulation lays down rules for ingredients selection, substances authorized, restricted and prohibited for use in cosmetics.
To ensure the safety of a cosmetic product, toxicological data on its ingredients must be completed, for all relevant toxicological endpoints, in order to calculate the Margin of Safety (MoS) and perform the safety assessment of the cosmetic product.
With Cosmedesk, you can create and manage your own cosmetic ingredients or we can provide you their toxicological analysis upon request.
Insert the data on the microbial and physico-chemical specifications, impurities and composition of the raw material, including information on the presence of allergens to guarantee quality control and product safety.
Upload your raw materials technical documents such as the Safety Data Sheet (SDS), the Technical File (TF), The International Fragrance Association (IFRA) certificate, etc., as provided by manufacturers to ensure traceability.
Store, manage and reuse all your raw materials´ information.
Throughout the life of a cosmetic product, some points need to be taken into account, including the careful ingredients and raw materials selection, adequate packaging and appropriate labelling.
Cosmedesk allows you not only to create and duplicate your products but also to manage them, from their formulation to the estimate of the exposure levels.
The Regulation deliberates a set of strict requirements for labelling of cosmetic products and one of the legal obligations to guarantee consumer safety, is to ensure compliance with these rules. Without proper labelling, a product will not be allowed into the European market.
Cosmedesk allows you to upload your cosmetic product label and artwork and provides a checklist to help you make sure that it is compliant with the Regulation.
In order to demonstrate the safety of a cosmetic product, a comprehensive safety evaluation must be completed.
A typical safety evaluation comprises the following steps:
Cosmedesk automatically calculates the SED and the MoS for each cosmetic ingredient, according to SCCS Notes of Guidance for the Testing of Cosmetic Ingredients and their Safety Evaluation (11thRevision).
Overview of Contents
Cosmedesk provides a checklist with the label requirements to ensure labelling compliance and organizes the list of ingredients in descending order of their weight at the time they are added to the cosmetic product, also taking into account the allergen restrictions.
The Period after Opening (PaO) represents the period of time after opening for which the product is safe and can be used without any harm to the consumer. Cosmedesk can provide an additional document with the PaO estimation according to the guidelines “Recommandations relatives a l’estimation de la periode apres ouverture” from the Agence française de sécurité sanataire des produits de santé (ANSM).
Cosmedesk automatically generates the Technical Data Sheet, an additional document with an overview of your products more relevant information.
Cosmedesk offers a document with necessary information regarding the formulation to upload during the registration of the product in the Cosmetic Product Notification Portal (CPNP).
