About the GHS

People of any ages, from children to elderly, using many different languages and alphabets, belonging to various social conditions, including illiterates, are daily confronted to dangerous products (chemicals, pesticides, etc.) To face this danger, and given the reality of the extensive global trade in chemicals and the need to develop national programs to ensure their safe use, transport and disposal, it was recognized that an internationally-harmonized approach to classification and labelling would provide the foundation for such programs.

Once countries have consistent and appropriate information on the chemicals they import or produce in their own countries, the infrastructure to control chemical exposures and protect people and the environment can be established in a comprehensive manner.

Important notice Please note that ingredients assigned with an INCI name which appear in CosIng (Inventory Section) are not necessarily actually used in cosmetic products nor are they approved for such use.

CosIng - Cosmetics - Health and Consumers

For ingredients used in cosmetic products as colorants, preservatives and UV filters, only those authorized in Annexes IV, VI, respectively VII to Directive 76/768/EEC are listed in CosIng. CosIng may contain ingredients known to be used in medicinal products. If, due to such ingredients, a product restores, corrects, or modifies physiological functions by exerting a pharmacological, immunological or metabolic action, the product shall be qualified as a medicinal product. However, products that, while having an effect on the human body, do not significantly affect the metabolism and thus do not strictly modify the way in which it functions, may be qualified as cosmetic products.

But the New York Times reports: A review of studies has found that the health benefits of infant male circumcision vastly outweigh the risks involved in the procedure. Actually, it doesn’t. Not at all. The paper is all about the frequency of circumcision in the US; this is the only real data in the paper, and notice that a good chunk of it is speculation. Prevalence of adult circumcision in the United States during the past 6 decades (1948-2010). It does toss in a table purporting to show the tremendous risks of not circumcising baby boys, but this is not new — these are the same sloppy data that the author has been peddling for over a decade. The author is Brian Morris, better known as the Man Who Hates Foreskins. Take that first condition, the likelihood of urinary tract infections.

EUR-Lex. Askur. Alternative Energy News. Facebook. Cosmetics. Regardless of the manufacturing processes or the channels of distribution, cosmetic products placed on the market in the EU must be safe.


The manufacturer is responsible for the safety of the products, and must ensure that they undergo an expert scientific safety assessment before they are launched for sale. Special database with information on specific cosmetic substances and ingredients, CosIng, enables easy access to data on these substances, including legal requirements and restrictions. Cosmetics legislation requires also that all products which are to be marketed in the European Union need to be registered in the Cosmetic Products Notification Portal (CPNP) prior to being placed on this market. Some cosmetic products were given special attention from the regulators due to their scientific complexity or higher potential risk for the consumers' health.

The cosmetics legislation provides also for a ban on animal testing for cosmetic purposes.
