Cosmetics Europe launches ingredient information database

Cosmetics Europe has launched COSMILE Europe, a database designed to help European citizens find information on cosmetic ingredients more easily.

Available in 14 languages, it provides information on almost 30,000 ingredients such as ingredient properties, their function, whether they are man-made and/or of natural origin and in which types of products they can be found.

The ingredient list on the label or packaging of cosmetics and personal care products uses INCI names (International Nomenclature Cosmetic Ingredient).

The cosmetic ingredient information in COSMILE Europe can be searched by common ingredient names or/INCI names, or by group of substances or product type.

“Cosmetics Europe is delighted to be sharing this tool with European citizens. There’s a deluge of information on cosmetics on the internet and it can be difficult to know which sources are reliable,” said John Chave, Director General of Cosmetics Europe.

“The European cosmetics and personal care industry wants to provide European citizens with a simple way to access reliable, verified and scientifically supported information on cosmetics ingredients,” he added.

The Cosmetics Europe initiative was developed in partnership with the German Cosmetic, Toiletry, Perfumery and Detergent Association (IKW), in collaboration with the French Fédération des Entreprises de la Beauté (FEBEA) and with the technological development support of health&media GmbH.

The initial 14 languages are Bulgarian, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Lithuanian, Polish, Romanian, Serbian and Spanish. More languages will be available next year. To search the ingredient database, visit https://cosmileeurope.eu/.
