If the products you are using do not meet Regulation (EC) 1223/2009. Your insurance will not cover you and you are risking the health of your clients. In brief, from 11th July 2013 it is an offence to supply cosmetic products anywhere in Europe which may cause damage to human health when applied under normal or reasonably foreseeable conditions of use. All Eyelash Adhesives are considered a Cosmetic Product and are subject to the regulation. Some of the many requirements of this regulation include: The product must be labelled correctly. Which must include the manufacturers name, contact details of the responsible person or body, country of origin, use by date, list of ingredients and other required information on health risks and safety measures. A simple check is to have a look at something like a shampoo from Boots, see all the technical info on the pack? That’s there by law. Does your adhesive have the similar level of information? If not, it’s illegal to sell and your insurance is worthless. The product must have a full safety assessment carried out by a properly qualified person. Okay these cost hundreds of pounds for each product and it’s what stops most suppliers. We have 20+ signed sealed and delivered by the UK’s leading safety assessors. The product cannot have been tested on animals. Naturally we have followed this policy through our own choice. The product must be registered with the Cosmetic Products Notification Portal (CPNP).
