single cpsr (cosmetic product safety report) - assess as you create
'ASSESS AS YOU CREATE'
-Only pay for 1 recipe upfront (£75 + VAT). This entitles you to 1 base recipe plus 1 variant.
-Add other variants on an ad hoc basis, as and when you create them, for just £25 + VAT each.
-Add up to 5 extra variants in total.
-Just add all your variants within 6 months.
This allows you to have more flexibility with your products and remove the hassle of waiting to have enough “variants” to go ahead with an assessment.
If you want to sell cosmetic ingredients, as retail products; or if you want to make and sell your own cosmetic products, a Cosmetic Safety Assessment Report (CPSR) is a legal requirement. This CPSR has been created specifically for small-scale producers.
These assessments are for both UK residents and European customers to sell in both the UK and Europe.
These assessments are written by a qualified biochemist with experience in analytical and environmental toxicology, microbiology and is an experienced research scientist.
His qualifications include BSc Biochemistry, MRes Biochemistry and AMRSB (Associate Member of the Royal Society of Biology).
Our reports now come complete with all the allergen info needed for your labelling, and full EU Toxicology, required for selling throughout Europe.
This assessment enables you to have a base recipe/formulation and 1 variant assessed and you can simply add variants to your assessment as you create them, within 6 months of purchasing the CPSR for an additional £25 (ex. VAT) per variant.
This allows you more flexibility. You could submit recipes for:
Soaps (M&P or CP/HP)
Bath Melts, Truffles etc
Bath & Body Oils
Face Oils / Creams / Balms
Beard Balms / Oils
Face & Body Scrubs
...and much more!
Possible Additional Fees
The fee for this report is £75 (ex. VAT). However, this is subject to your recipe being approved by our safety assessor. In some cases, there may be an admin fee charged, if your recipes are complicated, there are additional exposure areas* etc. Additionally, in a few cases, the assessor may be require you to carry out further tests, i.e. TVC testing or Challenge Testing, but we will advise you of this asap and you have the right to cancel thereafter. For more information, please see our T&C (below).
*This report covers you for one exposure area (one body area). If you wanted to use the same recipe but for a different use, i.e a lip balm that's also a body balm, then additional admin fees/ new assessment fee will apply.
What's Required From You
We don't need to physically see your product to produce your safety assessment.
Other things that we will either need or which would be useful to have are -
- directions for use
- micro testing data
- Cosmetic GMP compliance assurance
- stability data
Additionally, we need you to send the following documents -
The Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for each of your ingredients – most suppliers will provide these when you buy your ingredients. If you do not already have one, you will have to request one from the supplier.
An Allergen Declaration for any essential oils / fragrance oils in your composition. This is provided by the manufacturer/supplier of the oil and will enable us to determine you are using essential oils in safe quantities.
An IFRA statement for any other fragrance or flavour oils (not essential oils) – this statement will enable us to assess whether the (often, very complex) fragrance and flavour oils used are safe for your product.
Colours – we will need the CI numbers for your colours and glitters. There will often be several CI numbers in each colour, mica or glitter so be sure to provide all of them.
Terms & Conditions
IMPORTANT: Please read our specially crafted Terms & Conditions for safety assessment purchases (don’t worry it’s not too long!) But should help customers understand the process a bit better, and what your rights are with regard to refunds, recipe advice and after care. By making an assessment purchase you agree with these terms & conditions.
How Long it Takes
After you have purchased the assessment, we aim to complete your assessment within 2-3 weeks from your recipe being finalised. Meaning, once we have all the correct documents from you and your recipes have been verified by our assessment partners.
