Cosmetic Regulations

All cosmetic products are regulated at the UK & European levels to ensure the highest level of consumer safety.

The regulatory framework for finished cosmetic products sold in the UK is Schedule 34 of the Product Safety, and Metrology Statutory Instrument (now known as UK Cosmetics Regulation) & EU market is Regulation (EC) N° 1223/2009. 

Hera Beauty employs a Technical Manager to ensure that the highest quality standards are met. If you choose to add any essential oils or fragrances to a product, you can be confident that these additions will be within the UK & EU guidelines and comply with the IFRA standards.

Responsible Person

It is important to note that when selling a product under your own brand, it is your company’s responsibility to ensure that the product complies with the UK & EU regulations. The individual within your company who takes on this responsibility is known as the responsible person.

We have created a Product Information File (PIF) summary for all our standard products, and this can be found on the relevant product information page on our website. This document contains the key details about the product, including all the information you need to register the product on the UK (OPSS) & OR EU Cosmetic Product Notification Portal (CPNP).
