Navigating the Cosmetic Landscape: Understanding Regulation 1223/2009

In the dynamic world of cosmetics, ensuring the safety and efficacy of products is crucial. The European Union took already back in 2013 a significant step in this direction by implementing Regulation 1223/2009, a comprehensive framework that governs the safety and marketing of cosmetic products within the EU. This regulation, which came into effect in 2013, has been a game-changer for both consumers and cosmetic industry players.

BE AWARE of Digital pollution!?!

Did you know that according to market-research group Nielsen, adults spent over 11 hours per day interacting with media. Smartphones, computers, tablets, TV and even LED lamps are all considered as our screen time. Blue light has wavelength of 390-500nm and can therefore penetrate deeper into the dermal layers of the skin…


FAST TEST FOR ESTABLISHING SKIN TYPE Remove all makeup, wash your face with lukewarm water and cotton pad. Gently dry the skin with a towel and wait at least 30 minutes. At that time, do not apply anything on your face. Then gently press a paper towel or a piece of other, very thin paper on the face. After one minute, remove the towel and examine it in good light: 1. Normal skin: you will notice barely noticeable oily spots on the scalp. 2. Dry skin: if there are no greasy spots, you have dry skin. 3. Oily skin: if oily spots are visible throughout the towel, the skin is greasy. 4. Mixed skin: If greasy stains are visible only on those parts of the towel that touched the forehead, nose, and beard (T-zone), you have a mixed skin type.

No testing on animals!

The testing ban on finished cosmetic products applies since 11 September 2004; the testing ban on ingredients or combination of ingredients applies since 11 March 2009. So, on the market should be no products with that claim. If there is, it is misleading.


Alpha hydroxy acids or AHA acids have been used for centuries as a skin rejuvenation product. For example, Cleopatra bathed in acidic milk (lactic acid) to beautify her skin. 

Daily requirement for vitamin C

This delicious vegetable is one of the most useful foods that helps your skin. Vitamin C and carotenoids, with which it is rich, make your skin rich, glossy and clean. Pepper helps the skin to fight irregularities such as spots and stains. Vitamins, iron and beta-carotene from peppers are responsible for controlling the production of melanin. Therefore, it is recommended to people with a light skin tan and to all who have problems with skin hyperpigmentation.

FOODS that are better TO BE GIVEN TO THE SKIN than eaten

Potato, kiwi, orange, milk, honey, fish, red and green vegatables, spinach, mango, nuts…

KIWI A high content of vitamin C in kiwi helps in the fight against free radicals and improves the texture of the skin. Directly applied to the face acts as an enzyme exfoliation that removes dead cells and other impurities. Tip for use: Peel and cut ripe kiwi, then mash its meat with the fork. Apply it with circular motions to moist, clean skin; avoid the area around the eyes and lips. Rub it for 30-60 seconds, then rinse the skin with lukewarm water.
