Product Testing and Safety
We at SUNKISSED
are able to certify that our products are tested and meet the requirements of
the UK and EU for an assessment of safety for human health of finished
cosmetics products (Statutory Instruments 2008 No. 1284, The Cosmetics Products
(Safety) Regulations 2008) and subsequent amendments by considering the general
toxicological profile of the ingredients and an assessment of the final
takes into account:
a) the general toxicological profile of each ingredient used:
b) the chemical structure of each ingredient:
c) the level of exposure of each ingredient;
d) the specific exposure characteristics of the areas on which the cosmetic product will be applied;
e) the specific exposure characteristics of the class of individuals for whom the cosmetic product is intended.
f) any perfume, essential oil or flavour added to the products comply with the most recent IFRA guidelines at its level of use in a particular product.
is based on ingredient safety review and information on the final formulation,
including the intended and reasonably foreseeable use, the physico-chemical and
microbiological specifications of the raw materials and the finished product,
stability and a history and record of any reported undesirable effects linked
to the use of the product. Each assessment covers a number of colour variations
on the same base formula. All ingredients are reviewed for potential to be skin
irritants, sensitisers or photo-sensitisers. In addition where data is
available for systemic and sub-chronic toxicity has been taken into account. A
review of the literature and of the structural chemistry has been made for each
ingredient to estimate the likely potential for genotoxicity, reproductive
effects and carcinogenicity.
Margin of Safety
Based on the available
toxicological literature, Margins of Safety have been calculated for both
topical and systemic effects. It is concluded that all ingredients, when
considered both individually and in combination have an adequate Margin of
Safety. Taking the above into account and taking the safety data on file, it is
considered that the formulations used are safe for marketing.
Finished Product Safety
are based on known ingredients with history of safe use in cosmetic products.
The Safety Assessments have taken account of:
Quantitative/Qualitative composition of the product,
2. The intended and reasonably foreseeable use of the product,
3. Margins of Safety for all ingredients considered both individually and in combination.
In reviewing the
safety and toxicity profile of the ingredients used and their history of safe
use, it is concluded that there are no likely safety hazards from normal use of
any of our products and when used as directed or from foreseeable conditions of
misuse. The product range is considered safe for sale in UK and all EU
