IFRA 49th Amendment coming soon

IFRA 49th Amendment coming soon

The International Fragrance Association (IFRA) has recently announced the launch of the consultation on the IFRA Standards that will be part of the 49th Amendment. The consultation will close on July 21st, 2019 after which, depending on the outcome and comments received, IFRA will publish the newly revised standards around mid-August.

The 49th Amendment includes a full review of the existing IFRA classes resulting in this changing from 22 distinct “classes” across 11 “categories” to 16 distinct “classes” across 12 “categories”. At the heart of the changes is also a revised methodology of the Quantitative Risk Assessment for fragrance ingredients (referred to as QRA2).

Due to the scale of the changes, both in terms of the QRA2 and new IFRA categories, the implementation period is expected to be longer than usual. The timelines are part of the consultation and so subject to change but are currently quoted as more than one year (13 months) after publication for new creations and more than two years (25 months) after publication for existing fragrance compounds.

New IFRA certificate with the 49th Amendment will be mandatory for all fragrances and aromas used in cosmetic products in order to ensure the safety of the consumers, as now the “classes” and “categories” will be changed.

Cosmeservice- EU Responsible Person


European Regulation 655/2013 regulates the cosmetic marketing claims. On July 3, 2017, Annexes III and IV were incorporated into this document, the new elements of which will be applicable as of July 1, 2019.

Thus, from this date this Regulation becomes more restrictive, especially as it affects the claims “free from”, that is, those who claim that the product does not contain certain substances such as dyes, parabens, silicones, etc.

Cosmeservice, expert in Safety and European Cosmetic Regulation, offers a free webinar to explain in detail the EU Reg 655/2013 and offer examples of what is allowed and what is not so you can be sure that your labeling complies with the new guidelines of the regulation.

Climbazole uses amended at the Regulation (EU) 2019/698

Climbazole uses amended at the Regulation (EU) 2019/698


It was published on 30th April 2019 a new amending of the Annexes III and V of the cosmetic regulation, changing the use dosage of the substance 1-(4-Chlorophenoxy)-1-(imidazol-1-yl)-3,3-dimethylbutan-2-one, which has been assigned the INCI name Climbazole.

There is a potential risk to human health arising from the use of Climbazole as a preservative or as a non-preservative at cosmetic products.


The use of Climbazole as a preservative should therefore only be allowed in face cream, hair lotion, foot care products and rinse-off shampoo. The maximum concentration should be 0,2 % for face cream, hair lotion and foot care products and 0,5 % for rinse-off shampoo.

The use of Climbazole as a non-preservative should be restricted to rinse-off shampoo, when the substance is used as an anti-dandruff agent. For such use, the maximum concentration should be 2 %.


The industry should be allowed a reasonable period of time to adapt to the new requirements by making the necessary adjustments to product formulations to ensure that only products complying with the new requirements are placed on the market.

From 27th November 2019 cosmetic products containing Climbazole for the functions mentioned and not complying with the restrictions and conditions laid down in the Regulation shall not be placed on the Union market.

From 27th November 2020 cosmetic products containing Climbazole for the functions mentioned and not complying with the restrictions and conditions laid down in the Regulation shall not be available on the Union market.

Easier to get ISO 9001 with COSMESERVICE

ISO 9001 is a standard that sets out the requirements for a quality management system. It helps businesses and organizations to be more efficient and improve customer satisfaction.

The ISO 9000 family addresses various aspects of quality management and contains some of ISO’s best-known standards. The standards provide guidance and tools for companies and organizations who want to ensure that their products and services consistently meet customer’s requirements.

It doesn’t specify what the objectives relating to “quality” or “meeting customer needs” should be, but requires organizations to define these objectives themselves.

ISO 9001 is based on the idea of continual improvement and it can be used by any organization, large or small, regardless of its field of activity. In fact, there are over one million companies and organizations in over 170 countries certified to ISO 9001.

This standard is based on a number of quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement. Using ISO 9001 helps ensure that customers get consistent, good quality products and services, which in turn brings many business benefits.

Should I be certified to ISO 9001?

Certification – when an independent certification body audits your practices against the requirements of the standard – is not a requirement of ISO 9001, but is a way of showing stakeholders that you have implemented the standard properly.

We are ISO 9001 certified! And we consider it essential in order to successfully outcome your business.

For some companies, third- party certification may be a requirement. For example, some governments or public bodies may only contract suppliers that have been certified to ISO 9001.

If you want us to help with ISO 9001 certification we will be glad. We will guide you through all the process and we will make sure you will be able to obtain the certification.

How much do you know about Triglycerides?

Triglycerides are ubiquitous in personal care and cosmetic formulations. But… how much do you really know about them?

Whether natural plant oils/fats, synthetic esters, or petroleum-derived hydrocarbons, their unique chemical compositions determine those characteristics and how they apply to different product types. Lipids could be considered the most important part of skin care products. They are able to protect the skin from water loss, helping the barrier function of the skin. The main lipid category is a triglyceride and other lipids include phospholipids, steroids and essential oils.

The molecular structure of triglycerides and fatty acids determines the interdependent properties of stability, melt profile and compatibility of different oils and fats.  Knowing how these properties determine the unique characteristics of particular oils and fats can help us to make better choices for different product applications.



Triglycerides are the major molecular class comprising natural fats and oils. A triglyceride is composed of three fatty acid chains connected via a glycerol backbone. There are many different types of triglyceride, with the main division between saturated and unsaturated types, depending on the presence or not of carbon double bonds.

The different molecular structures of these types of substances means they have different effects on the behaviour of the emulsion system and the stability of the cosmetic product. Therefore, the polarity, density, viscosity and other physicoc­hemical properties of oils influence the behaviour of emulsions too.



These ingredients are considered an excellent emollient and skin-replenishing ingredients. Are usually included in cosmetics due to its components, that skin can use to replenish its surface and resist moisture loss. For example, Caprylic/capric triglyceride can function as a thickener, but its chief job is to moisturize and replenish skin.

There is a huge variety of Triglycerides available and ready-to-use for cosmetic formulations, all of them with different characteristics. Some of them are natural sourced ingredients, many others have synthetic origin but usually, the majority of them are safe for cosmetic formulation.

Before using any ingredient at any formulation, it has to be done some research and make sure the ingredient is permitted by the Regulation (EC) 1223/2009 of cosmetic products. In COSMESERVICE we are a group of highly qualified and trained professionals in Cosmetic Safety and Regulatory Affairs, ensuring compliance with regulations in order to safeguard the health of consumers. If you have any doubt of an ingredient or a formulation just contact us, we will be glad to help you.
