Labelling for cosmetic products and medical devices: rules, regulations and requirements

Labelling for cosmetic products and medical devices: rules, regulations and requirements In the author's last article, she wrote about the new 2013 EU regulations for cosmetic products which changed to the new Cosmetic Products Regulation 1223/2009 in July 2013 (Bowes, 2013). This paper will expand further on cosmetic product regulations by reviewing the legal labelling requirements for the cosmetics and ‘cosmeceuticals’ stocked by medical aesthetic practitioners, as well as their responsibilities as stockists selling directly to consumers. As it is equally important to understand the labelling requirements for medical devices such as dermal fillers, which are used frequently in aesthetic practice, the author will also explore these in the second half of the article. It is important to note that the labelling of prescription-only medicines, such as botulinum toxin, is outwith the scope of this article. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Aesthetic Nursing Mark Allen Group

Abstract

In the author's last article, she wrote about the new 2013 EU regulations for cosmetic products which changed to the new Cosmetic Products Regulation 1223/2009 in July 2013 (Bowes, 2013). This paper will expand further on cosmetic product regulations by reviewing the legal labelling requirements for the cosmetics and ‘cosmeceuticals’ stocked by medical aesthetic practitioners, as well as their responsibilities as stockists selling directly to consumers. As it is equally important to understand the labelling requirements for medical devices such as dermal fillers, which are used frequently in aesthetic practice, the author will also explore these in the second half of the article. It is important to note that the labelling of prescription-only medicines, such as botulinum toxin, is outwith the scope of this article.
