CPSR Safety Assessment - Safety Assessment For A Cosmetic Product
A vital part of the Product Information File, or PIF file, is the safety assessment or CPSR (Consumer Product Safety Assessment) as some people call it.
These have been around since the 1990s and we have been involved with both writing them and commissioning them throughout that time. So we have a lot of experience of what they are used for and what can go wrong with them.
The CCC Approach To Cosmetic Product Safety Assessment
We have an extensive database of raw materials that we have been building up for the last thirty years and have routines worked out for carrying out all the necessary calculations. This enables us to produce a very thorough report very quickly and therefore relatively cheaply. It also includes a proposed ingredient list for the pack along with all the required allergens.
Also, as experienced formulators we are able to give a second opinion on the suitability of your formulation and the ingredients you have selected for the purpose intended. In the event of the formulation not meeting the required standard we can often suggest possible solutions, and whenever possible pass the modified formulation without further cost.
Choosing A Safety Assessor for your CPSR
It is important to have a safety assessor that meets your particular needs. These are going to vary quite a lot from business to business, and we appreciate that our approach may not always be a good match for your needs.
We focus on practical considerations. We use our knowledge of formulating and the way cosmetics are regulated in practice in the real world to make sure that your safety report doesn't have snags that can trip you up at a later stage. If your reports are likely to be going to customers and the authorities then we may well be a good fit for you.
What We'll Need To Compile Your CPSR
The more information you can provide the better report we can prepare. In some cases all we'd need would be the formulation. Our database is something we've been building up over 30 years and we have about 4,000 raw materials on it, and are continually updating it. There is a good chance that we already have the full details of most or possibly all the ingredients you are using.
Other things that we will either need or which would be useful to have are -
- ingredient suppliers
- directions for use
- micro testing data
- Cosmetic GMP compliance assurance
- stability data
You can download our form in spreadsheet format if that might be helpful.
We always like to see a finished product in the final pack, but appreciate that this isn't always possible.
We have tried to give all the relevant information here, but a safety assessment can be complicated so feel free to forward any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
Note - The price quoted includes VAT. The price without VAT is £220. If you have a set of related formulations, for example a soap with the same base but a range of colours and fragrances, then each extra one only costs £45 with VAT (£37.50 without VAT).
