flexible cpsr (cosmetic product safety report)
The total cost of this assessment is £199+VAT.
You are able to specify or create your base, then you can choose 10 colourants, and you can include 6 fragrance OR essential oils.
You could choose to add 4 other ingredients (not included in your base recipe) at £5 + VAT per extra ingredient. For example, other carrier oils and/or clays.
The essential oils chosen will be assessed for blending purposes, and providing the potential blends are safe they will be permitted. In general, as long as the total essential oil content doesn't exceed 2/3% it is safe to blend them. There are some exceptions (for example, the total citrus content cannot generally exceed 1%). If there is a different limit or an unsafe blend, the report will state that.
Guidelines for this assessment
Your base must make up at least 90% of your product. Your base may be comprised of no more than 10 ingredients.
Essential oils and Fragrance oils are limited to 2-3% (3% in rinse-off products and 2% in leave-on products. There may be occasions where the safe use limit of your essential or fragrance oil is less than 2%. The maximum amount you can use will be stated in your assessment.)
Colourants are limited to 5%.
This assessment only covers one type of product use. So you can't use the same base to create different kinds of products for multiple uses.
For your essential and fragrance oils there may be occasions where – depending on the oils you have chosen – it is not possible for certain oils to be combined, or there may be a smaller limit of use depending on the make-up of the oil.
THIS ASSESSMENT WILL ONLY BE VALID IF USED WITHIN THE LIMITS AND SPECIFICATIONS STATED IN YOUR ASSESSMENT REPORT. ANY DEVIATION FROM THE REPORT WILL RENDER YOUR ASSESSMENT INVALID.
