Legislation, the cosmetic safety dossier and cosmetic safety without animal testing
This volume of Current Problems in Dermatology presents the reader with a portrait of the scientific background of the complex process of safety assessment of cosmetics as well as information on European cosmetic legislation. A practical approach to the search for toxicity data on cosmetic ingredients and a compilation of the legally required technical dossier of a finished cosmetic product as well as an in-depth analysis of the safety assessment of cosmetic ingredients performed at the EU level by the Scientific Committee on Consumer Products (SCCP) are available. The current status of 3R alternatives to animal testing and the extent to which they are implemented by the cosmetic industry and considered by the SCCP in the risk assessment process is discussed. As such, guidance is provided in relation to the manifold challenges cosmetic safety assessors are faced with in the current EU regulatory setting.
In this valuable handbook, qualified cosmetic safety assessors, suppliers of raw materials, dermatologists and pharmacists, toxicologists as well as EU officials and administrators dealing with cosmetics will find relevant information on the European cosmetic legislation, the compilation of cosmetic technical dossiers, toxicological database searches, and the availability and use of alternative methods in the field of cosmetics.
