New GPSR Requirements for Cosmetics Sold Online

Updated: Mar 5

Since the implementation of the General Product Safety Regulation (GPSR) in January 2024, economic operators selling cosmetic products online face new requirements to ensure the transparency and safety of their products.

These regulations, set out in Article 19 of the cross-cutting EC Regulation 2023/988 (known as GPSR), aim to protect consumers and ensure that they have access to crucial information about the products they buy.

According to the guidelines provided by Cosmetics Europe in its online guide published on November 28, 2023, economic operators have a responsibility to ensure that certain information is clearly visible at online or remote points of sale.

Key requirements on the new GPSR

1. Contact Information: The name, mailing address and email address of the person responsible for selling the cosmetic product online must be provided.

2. Product Identification: An image of the product must be included, as well as information about its function and any other relevant identifier.

3.Precautions and Warnings: It is essential that precautions for use, warnings and cautionary statements are included to ensure that consumers use products safely and appropriately.

These requirements aim to improve transparency and protect consumers' interests by providing them with access to essential information about the cosmetic products they purchase online. Economic operators that fail to comply with these requirements could face significant penalties and fines, so it is crucial that they take steps to ensure compliance with GDPR regulations.

In summary, the implementation of the GDPR has brought significant changes to the way cosmetic products are sold online, with a renewed focus on transparency and consumer safety.
