HomeA-Z of terms and ingredientsOestrogen


Oestrogen is a potent hormone occurring naturally in the body, that has a wide range of effects in the body.

For this reason both natural and synthetic oestrogens are prohibited from being present in cosmetic products, so any cosmetic product containing oestrogens would be illegal in the UK. This ban is one of many strict regulations placed on cosmetic products by the UK Cosmetics Regulation to ensure only safe cosmetics are available on the market.
