This consumer site is run by the Cosmetic, Toiletry and Perfumery Association (CTPA) to help explain the science behind cosmetic and personal products and to help consumers and the media research the facts about product safety. It is written in everyday, non-technical language to aid understanding.

 

However, on our main CTPA website, our FAQs section provides answers to the questions that we receive most commonly from companies about the strict legislation that applies to the production and supply of cosmetic and personal care products.

 

If you are a consumer or non-member of CTPA and still have further questions that you can’t find on thefactsabout or the FAQs, you can e-mail enquiries to [email protected]. Please note that as a membership organisation, CTPA must prioritise member enquiries. Non-member enquiries will be dealt with in a timely manner and we thank you for your patience.

 

The role of CTPA is to be the credible authority for a vibrant and responsible UK industry, trusted to act responsibly for the consumer.
