Cosmetovigilance Industry Background

The term cosmetovigilance was first used in the French literature in 1997, and was not indexed on an international scale. The concept was later translated to ‘monitoring cosmetic product safety’ or ‘surveillance’. The primary aim of cosmetovigilance is use of safety information for commercial purpose. It is a public health surveillance on cosmetics with the prime objective of sustaining public health. The European Union legislated directive 76/768/EEC, in 1976, to regulate the monitoring of cosmetic products for damage to human health, when applied in normal or under probable conditions. Later, regulation (EC) No. 1223/2009 created the basis of uniformity in cosmetics regulation and cosmetovigilance. Besides proper regulation for cosmetic products, an appropriate vigilance system is required to safeguard health of the consumers. The process of cosmetovigilance is evolving over the years and is anticipated to boom as a strong regulatory science to protect beauty and public health.
