According to this guideline, if it is claimed that it does not contain certain component (s) in the cosmetic product such as paraben-free, phthalate-free, alcohol-free, SLES, SLS, paint-free, it is to be taken from a laboratory with TSE ISO IEC 17025 It is obligatory to submit the analysis report to the Cosmetics Department at the application stage.
Therefore, manufacturers must have their cosmetic products analyzed in a Turkak accredited laboratory.
Saniter is the first private laboratory accredited from Turk, and SLS, SLES, PARABEN, ALCOHOL analyzes are within the scope of accreditation.
The statements in the Regulation are as follows.
"claim not containing" - ARTICLE 12 -
(1) - A claim that does not "contain" or that means that a component is prohibited by the Cosmetic Regulation should not be used. For example, the expression kort not containing corticosteroids uygun is inappropriate because the requirement of legislation is not a property of the product, as corticosteroids are currently prohibited by the Cosmetic Regulation.
(2) If it is claimed that a specific component is not present in the cosmetic product, it must not be present in the product and no component causing the release of this component should be present in the product. For example, a product with the claim that it is free of formaldehyde cannot contain formaldehyde, nor can it contain components such as diazolidinyl urea which release formaldehyde.
(3) It is not appropriate to use claims that do not contain or similar claims for components that are not used by the nature of the products in the relevant product group. For example, perfumes containing a high proportion of alcohol do not require the addition of any preservatives (antimicrobial agents), so it is not appropriate to claim that they do not contain preservatives.
(4) The absence of certain components in the formulation of the product cannot ensure the use of an absolute assurance or implication of that product. for example, the claim that the product is not at risk of causing any allergic reaction is inappropriate.
(5) If it is claimed that the cosmetic product does not contain certain component (s), the analysis report stating that it does not contain the substance (s) to be obtained from the laboratory complying with TSE ISO IEC 17025 standards, in which the product composition does not contain such component (s), must be submitted to the Cosmetic Product Department at the application stage.
Those who do not submit the document or prove that it does not contain it cannot use this claim.
