Rahn Teams Up with Dermatest

December 3, 2013

The new EC Cosmetic Regulation 1223/2009 entered into force with the aim to protect and improve the health and safety of consumers of cosmetic products. Since July 2013 manufacturers of cosmetic products are legally required to prepare a PIF (product information file) including a cosmetic product safety assessment.

However, the preparation of safety assessments and, in particular, the collection of data to calculate parameters such as exposure to ingredients and MoS (margin of safety), are sometimes challenging for cosmetic producers.

To assist its customers in the laborious preparation of the cosmetic product safety assessment, Rahn is collaborating with Dermatest, a German research institute. The safety assessors from Dermatest conducted exposure assessments for the ingredients from the Rahn cosmetic active portfolio and evaluated their toxicological profile (e.g. NOAEL values) with emphasis on MoS calculation.

These detailed safety assessments are now available for most of the Rahn cosmetic actives upon request.
