The European Federation for Cosmetic Ingredients (EFfCI), which advocates the collective interests of European ingredient manufacturers and represents a significant part of the market, announced it has released its Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) Guide for Cosmetic Ingredients. The 28-page document is available in English.
Following previous International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and IPEC (International Pharmaceutical Excipients Council) GMP guides as a reference, the EFfCI working group in charge has issued a framework that is said to match the spirit of European cosmetics directives and the future cosmetic product GMP. The group thus fills a gap and aims at supplying a practical tool for GMP implementation and at facilitating quality and traceability process connections between ingredient producers and cosmetic manufacturers.
The GMP Guide for Cosmetic Ingredients will be presented during a lecture at in-cosmetics and also will be available at several EFfCI members' booths. For more information about EffCI, visit: www.effci.com.
