Assuring safety of cosmetic and consumer products

Our consultants and researchers have proven experience in assuring the safety of cosmetic and consumer products. Our core team of consumer industry-experienced toxicology, environmental and regulatory affairs specialists provides creative, science-based solutions to support ongoing and new business initiatives.


Specifically for cosmetic products, we conduct safety evaluations and develop the required regulatory documentation (e.g., product information files) for cosmetic ingredient manufacturers as well as formulators of cosmetic products, in compliance with Cosmetic Regulation (EC) No. 1223/2009 and related safety evaluation guidance from the Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS).

Due to regulatory and public demand, ToxMinds has further specialised in identifying non-animal based safety assessment methodologies. We routinely and reproducibly apply SAR-, analogue- and grouping-based assessment approaches in a product safety, regulatory or product stewardship context.
