  • Kochani! Serdecznie Wam dziękuję za wczorajszy udział w Live🤗 A jeszcze bardziej dziękuję @hiszp.anka za zaproszenie!!!❤️ Mam nadzieję, że się podobało i że będzie więcej takich spotkań😉 Jeśli chcecie wrócić do tematu lub nie zdążyliście wczoraj nas obejrzeć to film znajdziecie na profilu u Ani: 
👉https://www.instagram.com/tv/CC_uAZKp_91/?utm_source=ig_web_button_share_sheet
Gdybyście mieli jakieś pytania to śmiało piszcie!

Jak widzicie temat deklaracji marketingowych i opisów kosmetyków na ich etykietach to temat rzeka. W przemyśle kosmetycznym takim zbiorem dobrych praktyk reklamy kosmetyków jest Dokument Techniczny Komisji Europejskiej, który obowiązuje od 1 lipca zeszłego roku. Szczególny nacisk jest kładziony na deklaracje typu:
 👉”free from” (załącznik III) – dokument zakazuje stosowania deklaracji typu: „free from”, „nie zawiera”, „wolny od”, które stawiają w złym świetle legalnie stosowane składniki (np. parabeny),
👉”hipoalergiczny” (załącznik IV) – kosmetyk powinien spełnić pewne kryteria, aby nazwać go produktem hipoalergicznym. 
Chcecie wiedzieć więcej? Zapraszam na mój blog na stronie Cosmetics Care: 👉https://www.cosmeticscare.eu/deklaracje-marketingowe-kosmetykow-obostrzenia/
gdzie już rok temu poruszałam ten temat. 
Ciekawa jestem jaka jest Wasza opinia odnośnie claimów typu „free from”. To dobrze, że nie powinny być stosowane? Czy jednak lubicie, gdy takie informacje występują na opakowaniach Waszych ulubionych kosmetyków? Co myślicie?😊

  • Cosmetic Ingredient Review

There's a lot of talk about cosmetics and ingredients not being regulated which is not true. 

The CIR reviews and assess the safety of ingredients used in cosmetics in an open, unbiased, and expert manner, and publish their results in the peer-reviewed scientific literature.

In the US the FDA uses information from the CIR when they evaluate the safety of cosmetic ingredients before products go to market.

If you are interested in learning more about them or want to see some of their assessments check out their website
Www.cir-saftey.org

  • There's a fine line between drugs and cosmetics. Sometimes I find it blurry too, but here I want to make some examples. Let's quickly touch on what is a cosmetic and what is a drug.⁣
⁣
A cosmetic is a product intended "for cleansing, beautifying, promoting attractiveness, or altering the appearance"⁣
⁣
A drug is "intended to affect the structure or any function of the body of man or other animals"⁣
⁣
When a cosmetic product claims to change the structure of the skin it becomes a drug and should be tested according to the regulations for drugs. Therefore, wording is very important and makes a huge difference in the expectations you can have. ⁣
Here some examples:⁣
⁣
Drug: this serum contains 22% L-ascorbic acid that stimulates the production of collagen making the skin firmer and smoother. This describes how the product changes the STRUCTURE of the skin⁣
⁣
Cosmetic: this serum with 22% ascorbic acid makes the skin appear toned, firm and smooth. This speaks about APPEARANCE ⁣
⁣
Check your products, do you think they are marketed as cosmetics or drugs?⁣

  • There's a lot of misinformation and fear mongering out there. 
So I want to give you some tools to find reliable information.
The SCCS (scientific committee on consumer safety) is the independent scientific committee of the European Union. 
They analyze studies about certain ingredients, look at all the products on  the market containing those ingredients, look into safety from different perspectives and conclude whether that ingredient is safe and if restrictions are required. They have a database of all cosmetic ingredients called Cos Ing.

The CIR (cosmetic ingredients review) is a panel of 7 experts that also look into safety of ingredients in the US. 
Around the world of course there are other scientific committees and regulating bodies. These 2 are very easy to consult and are reliable. 
Swipe left to see how to use these tools. Let's beat misinformation!💪

  • The FDA has several definitions of incidental ingredients. One of them is "a substance added to a cosmetic as a component of a cosmetic ingredient and having no technical or functional effect in the finished cosmetic".⁣
⁣
For example, if a product contains a plant extract and this extract is preserved, that preservative can be omitted from the ingredient if it is in an amount that has no effect as preservative in the final product.⁣
That preservative has the function of preserving the extract but is not enough to preserve the final formulation. ⁣
⁣
So, let's make a simple example with numbers.⁣
Let's say the plant extract is preserved with 0.5% preservative. The product contains 2% of the plant extract. That means that the product will contain 0.5% preservative of the 2% extract, that is 0.5% *2= 0.01% of that preservative in the final formulation. Since preservative will be present in the final formulation at 0.01%, this amount wouldn't be enough to preserve the product and is considered an incidental ingredient, so no need to list it according to the FDA.⁣
⁣
This is not true for Europe. The european regulation offers no definiton of incidental ingredients, therfore all ingredients must be declared on the label, even those in the smallest amounts if they are part of the ingredients composing the product.

  • What exactly is a ✨COSMETIC PRODUCT✨? There are three preliminary questions which should be addressed when deciding whether a product could legally be classified as a cosmetic:
+ Purpose
+ Site of Application
+ Composition

Hence, a cosmetic product is:
+ For external use only - not  ingestion, injection or inhalation
+ For cleaning, perfuming,  changing the appearance of the  skin, protecting the skin,  keeping skin in good condition  or correcting body odours.

A cosmetic product needs to comply with regulation set out by the country/area where it is intended to be sold.

  • COSMETIC PRODUCT OWNERS & MANUFACTURERS

Attractive labelling is one of the most important features of the product when it comes to sales, but the correct labelling is just as essential for the compliance of the cosmetic product with regulations.

Here at QUALIDESK, we will make sure that your labelling/packaging is fully compliant with regulations and advertising standards and we will provide you with a Packaging Compliance Report. This will give you ✨ease of mind✨, knowing that your packaging is backed by regulatory evidence and in line with consumer protection acts or laws.

Packaging Compliance Reports are region specific, taking in account where the product will be sold and which regulation and standards are applicable.

Take the first step to SAFE and COMPLIANT cosmetics by allowing us to assess your product labelling/packaging.

  • Are your products safe?

With more and more people making their own soaps, creams, hand sanitisers etc there’s a big increase in products out there that aren’t legal or safe. 
Cosmetic legislation is in some ways stricter than food legislation but surprisingly many makers are not aware or choose to ignore it because of the expense or inconvenience to them. 
Here’s the main points we need to cover to keep ourselves legal and responsible: 🧼 Adherence to Good Manufacturing Practice
🧼 Every recipe must hold a cosmetic assessment under the business owners/makers name
🧼 Hold additional assessments for products for children under 3 🧼 Every product must be logged onto a European database (there will be a UK one after we fully leave the EU)
🧼 Comply with labelling legislation
🧼 Hold a Product Information File for every recipe
🧼 Keep batch notes for every single batch made and show the batch number on the label
🧼 Hold adequate liability insurance
🧼 Adhere to local Trading Standards guidelines
🧼 Keep up to date with ever changing legislation
🧼 Don’t make medical claims
🧼 and I’ve probably missed something off so check the comments 😁

This is all costly and time consuming but it’s a matter of safety, even natural ingredients are dangerous and cause burns or bad reactions and an assessment is a stamp of safety. Following a recipe from a book or the internet isn’t enough. 
If you’re a stockists or market organiser then you can ask to see the safety assessments, any reputable maker should oblige. 
Of course products can be gifted to family or close friends without all of the above but they can’t be given to food banks or other charities and definitely can’t be sold, even if they say it’s just a hobby not a business!

  • Professional Beauty London & World Spa & Wellness Convention along with The International Distributors Forum, Cosmetic Ingredients and Packaging International, other live stage workshops and seminars have been postponed to a new date of 11th & 12th October 2020.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank speakers of CIPI who have supported me in offering their time, expertise and willingness to join me at the inaugural launch of this new conference. The organisers of Professional Beauty London have made the right decision at this time to postpone the event. 
As we navigate our way through these uncharted waters, I know we will come back stronger, united and more knowledgable. 
Looking forward to seeing you in October, healthy and well keen to network and gain valuable insights from industry experts. 
Wishing health and wellness to all.

  • I noticed that I’ve gained some new followers so if you’re new to my page 👋🏻 Hi There, Welcome 🤗 
As you may notice, my previous posts were not focused around clean and non-toxic beauty. 🌱I decided to make the switch after learning about the severity of the harmful ingredients that we find in everyday cosmetics (hormone disruption, cancer, reproductive issues, the list goes on)...As well as the fact that the FDA has not regulated cosmetics in over 80 YEARS!  To me, it meant that I needed to start taking this topic seriously if I wanted to see change in the beauty industry. 💚I have ALOT to learn but I am determined to start taking the necessary steps to help regulate & change the beauty standard 🌎 
Thanks for following my journey! 🌻

  • I noticed that I’ve gained some new followers so if you’re new to my page 👋🏻 Hi There, Welcome 🤗
    As you may notice, my previous posts were not focused around clean and non-toxic beauty. 🌱I decided to make the switch after learning about the severity of the harmful ingredients that we find in everyday cosmetics (hormone disruption, cancer, reproductive issues, the list goes on)...As well as the fact that the FDA has not regulated cosmetics in over 80 YEARS! To me, it meant that I needed to start taking this topic seriously if I wanted to see change in the beauty industry. 💚I have ALOT to learn but I am determined to start taking the necessary steps to help regulate & change the beauty standard 🌎
    Thanks for following my journey! 🌻

  • This is a great video, explaining what small and large brands can do for claims. If you did not know, the EU cracked down on cosmetic claims. You can now not make free from claims. It is very missing leading anyway because you are implying that certain ingredients are dangerous when as long as they are within limit they are safe. 
Claims that can not be made anymore: 
Free from: ✨silicones
✨Mineral oil
✨Formaldehyde releasing preservativees
✨preservatives ✨And the list goes on... #scienceovermarketing #cosmeticregulations #ipcs

  • Essential Oils are beautiful!

They smell amazing and have the power to uplift, relax and centre you.

They are a potent source of scent but can be dangerous if used directly on the skin.  Most essential oils have a recommended combined percentage in a formulation of 1% for adults in 'leave on' products such as topical creams.

Natural cosmetics can be a minefield, if you're shopping around look for accountability.... good manufacturers will be members of organisations that annually audit such as @crueltyfreeintl or @soilassociation

While there are legal requirements to adhere to these regulations, there's no way for customers to check compliance or even if they hold insurance, so it can be as simple as 'Do you trust them?' Even if they claim to be registered on the Cosmetic Products Notification Portal (or CPNP) it's not a register available to the general public.

Formulating my own cosmetics and being a consumer of other natural skincare has made me question what companies can do to show they have done their due diligence and produce to best practice.

Whatever the answer, it has to be simple and avoid costing the smaller companies too much, or we all lose out on the choices available to us as consumers.

  • There's a fine line between drugs and cosmetics. Sometimes I find it blurry too, but here I want to make some examples. Let's quickly touch on what is a cosmetic and what is a drug.⁣
⁣
A cosmetic is a product intended "for cleansing, beautifying, promoting attractiveness, or altering the appearance"⁣
⁣
A drug is "intended to affect the structure or any function of the body of man or other animals"⁣
⁣
When a cosmetic product claims to change the structure of the skin it becomes a drug and should be tested according to the regulations for drugs. Therefore, wording is very important and makes a huge difference in the expectations you can have. ⁣
Here some examples:⁣
⁣
Drug: this serum contains 22% L-ascorbic acid that stimulates the production of collagen making the skin firmer and smoother. This describes how the product changes the STRUCTURE of the skin⁣
⁣
Cosmetic: this serum with 22% ascorbic acid makes the skin appear toned, firm and smooth. This speaks about APPEARANCE ⁣
⁣
Check your products, do you think they are marketed as cosmetics or drugs?⁣

  • The FDA has several definitions of incidental ingredients. One of them is "a substance added to a cosmetic as a component of a cosmetic ingredient and having no technical or functional effect in the finished cosmetic".⁣
⁣
For example, if a product contains a plant extract and this extract is preserved, that preservative can be omitted from the ingredient if it is in an amount that has no effect as preservative in the final product.⁣
That preservative has the function of preserving the extract but is not enough to preserve the final formulation. ⁣
⁣
So, let's make a simple example with numbers.⁣
Let's say the plant extract is preserved with 0.5% preservative. The product contains 2% of the plant extract. That means that the product will contain 0.5% preservative of the 2% extract, that is 0.5% *2= 0.01% of that preservative in the final formulation. Since preservative will be present in the final formulation at 0.01%, this amount wouldn't be enough to preserve the product and is considered an incidental ingredient, so no need to list it according to the FDA.⁣
⁣
This is not true for Europe. The european regulation offers no definiton of incidental ingredients, therfore all ingredients must be declared on the label, even those in the smallest amounts if they are part of the ingredients composing the product.

  • Are your products safe?

With more and more people making their own soaps, creams, hand sanitisers etc there’s a big increase in products out there that aren’t legal or safe. 
Cosmetic legislation is in some ways stricter than food legislation but surprisingly many makers are not aware or choose to ignore it because of the expense or inconvenience to them. 
Here’s the main points we need to cover to keep ourselves legal and responsible: 🧼 Adherence to Good Manufacturing Practice
🧼 Every recipe must hold a cosmetic assessment under the business owners/makers name
🧼 Hold additional assessments for products for children under 3 🧼 Every product must be logged onto a European database (there will be a UK one after we fully leave the EU)
🧼 Comply with labelling legislation
🧼 Hold a Product Information File for every recipe
🧼 Keep batch notes for every single batch made and show the batch number on the label
🧼 Hold adequate liability insurance
🧼 Adhere to local Trading Standards guidelines
🧼 Keep up to date with ever changing legislation
🧼 Don’t make medical claims
🧼 and I’ve probably missed something off so check the comments 😁

This is all costly and time consuming but it’s a matter of safety, even natural ingredients are dangerous and cause burns or bad reactions and an assessment is a stamp of safety. Following a recipe from a book or the internet isn’t enough. 
If you’re a stockists or market organiser then you can ask to see the safety assessments, any reputable maker should oblige. 
Of course products can be gifted to family or close friends without all of the above but they can’t be given to food banks or other charities and definitely can’t be sold, even if they say it’s just a hobby not a business!

  • Why I started switching to Clean Beauty👇🏼😯⁣⁣
⁣
▪️Did you know that Europe banned over 1000 chemicals/toxins in cosmetics, but the US only bans 10?!!!! 😫⁣⁣
⁣⁣
▪️When I got sick my doctor started asking what products I was using when it came to my beauty routine, and also my household products. I didn’t really think much of it, till she explained that certain chemicals & toxins are endocrine disrupters & can effect your health over time. ⁣⁣
That means it can mess with your thyroid function, hormones, and fertility!!! ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
▪️So I started paying more attention 👀 to the ingredients in the products I was using. I started using resources like @thinkdirty and Environmental Working Group. Think Dirty Ap allows you to scan products at the store or products your already own and rates them based on their toxic ingredient level. It’s extremely helpful when switching to less toxic products. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
▪️I wish as consumers we didn’t have to do the extra research to make sure the products we use are safe. I believe it’s up to the government to regulate the cosmetic industry rather then the cosmetic industry regulating themselves. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
▪️Don’t you think it’s time for a change in how the cosmetic industry is regulated? Because right now they can put whenever they want in the products you use on a daily bases.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
⁣⁣
▪️Please comment below👇🏼👇🏼⁣⁣
⁣⁣
What are your thoughts about clean beauty? and the US cosmetic industry not being regulated? (Even if you disagree I’d love to see your point of view)⁣⁣
