Annex II & III, 1223/2009/EC

The presentation concern the cosmetics directive’s annexes which handle restricted, allowed or forbidden substances. The main issue is to show how to read and interprete the annexes.

What is to be done  if there are „substance classes“ /groups or what happens if substances are listed in separate annexes?

What is the intention of the annexes? Do they make cosmetic products safe?
