In recent decades, the demand “green” or “natural” has become increasingly significant, leading the consumer to change their lifestyle and be more careful when buying goods and cosmetics alike, being more conscientious of formulations and chemical compounds. Preliminary and unavoidable assumption, is that the product connoted as natural is, first of all, compliant with Regulation (EC) n. 1223/2009, with particular regard to the composition, safety, efficacy and labeling requirements. The purpose of the presentation will be on the one hand, to analyse communication strategies through the correct application of the lawfulness criteria, without incurring the risk of misleading and providing the consumer with credible but above all truthful information, as well as assessing the obligations imposed by the REACH regulations and CLP for these substances used in cosmetic formulations.
