Flexi-style cosmetic product safety reports (cpsr) Assessments

Do you dream of launching your own cosmetics line? Well, you're in luck! But before you dive into the world of beauty, there's an important step you need to take: getting a Cosmetic Product Safety Report (CPSR). Don't worry, we've got you covered!

A CPSR, also known as a Safety Assessment, is a legal document that every cosmetics brand needs to have. It ensures that all your products are safe for your customers. Whether you're starting from scratch or customizing a cosmetic base, a CPSR is a must-have. So let's get your beauty business off to a safe and successful start!

Can you summarise what I need to get started?

1) Cosmetic Product Safety Report (CPSR) Assessment: This is the first and foremost requirement. The CPSR is specific to the 'theme' of fragrance you want to sell your product in, such as fruity, floral scents etc. This assessment evaluates the safety of our expertly-crafted recipe, based on its ingredients and other factors.

2) Fragrance Oils: To complement your chosen fragrance theme, you'll need to buy a fragrance assessment bundle for those scents. These bundles have been curated to match particular themes and make it easier for you to shop. Alternatively, if you prefer, you can purchase the fragrance oils individually.

Please note that it is mandatory for these Craftovator fragrance oils to be used for your product, as the assessment has been provided on the basis of using Craftovator fragrance oils.

3) Colourants (dyes, mica powders etc.): Depending on your product and its appearance, you may need to purchase permitted colourants. These can also be bought either in a bundle or individually, providing flexibility according to your needs.

Please note that it is mandatory for these Craftovator colourants to be used for your product, as the assessment has been provided on the basis of using Craftovator colourants.

4) Base Ingredients: Lastly, you will need to procure the base ingredients for your product. The specific base ingredients will depend on the type of cosmetic product you are making. Your specific assessment will determine if these base ingredients must be purchased from Craftovator or if they can be purchased from alternative suppliers.

A CPSR is a legal requirement for any cosmetic or toiletry product intended for sale to the public that comes into contact with the skin. It evaluates the safety of your product based on its ingredients and other factors.

A flexi-style CPSR assessment is a pre-written safety assessment for cosmetic products. Unlike bespoke assessments, flexi-style assessments require no specific product details from you, providing a flexible and cost-effective option for obtaining the necessary safety documentation. This is a pre-formulated recipe with typically 10 fragrance options and a variety of additional elements such as colours, mica powders and dyes.

We are proud to announce we have one of the quickest turnaround times in the UK, with digital delivery within 10 working days.

No, you should not sell your product until you have received the CPSR and confirmed that it meets all safety requirements. There is also additional work to be done before placing your product on the market, which you can read more about here.

The fragrance oils allowed in your product will depend on the specific flexi-style CPSR assessment. Each assessment typically permits a selection of 10 different fragrances which MUST be purchased from Craftovator.
