Cosmetic Product Safety REPORT (CPSR)




A Cosmetic Product Safety Report, known as a CPSR, is legal documentation, provided by a chemist, to ensure the safety of your recipes and finished products. We cover a variety of products to ensure we can help all of our customers.

Any cosmetic or toiletry product to be sold to the public, that comes into contact with the skin, requires a CPSR. It ensures your products are safe, legally compliant and protects your customers, your brand and your reputation.

Following correct regulations builds a strong and trusting relationship with all your customers and businesses.
