Ten cosmetic products in the RAPEX rapid alert system this week

Ten cosmetic products can be found this week in the RAPEX database of the European Union. An entry there is made due to possible serious health hazards. The products are usually withdrawn from the market and destroyed. The duty of care was not sufficiently exercised and the requirements of Regulation (EC) 1223/2009 were not met. The respective entries were made due to the following hazards:

  • Prohibited preservatives
  • Allergenic fragrances not declared
  • Chlorine content

Have both your cosmetic end products and your raw materials regularly analysed for the content of the above substances. Further residues such as heavy metals, pesticides, nitrosamines, PAHs etc. belong to the analysis spectrum of the BAV Institute and its Tentamus laboratory partners.
