Cosmetics (colloquially known as makeup or make-up) are care substances used to enhance the appearance or odor of the human body. They are generally mixtures of chemical compounds, some being derived from natural sources, many being synthetic.

In the U.S., the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which regulates cosmetics, defines cosmetics as “intended to be applied to the human body for cleansing, beautifying, promoting attractiveness, or altering the appearance without affecting the body’s structure or functions.” This broad definition also includes any material intended for use as a component of a cosmetic product. The FDA specifically excludes soap from this category.

Directive 93/35/EEC, the Sixth Amendment to the original Cosmetic Directive of 1976, incorporates the following definition of a cosmetic product:

A “cosmetic product” shall mean any substance or mixture intended to be placed in contact with the various external parts of the human body (epidermis, hair system, nails, lips and external genital organs) or with the teeth and the mucous membranes of the oral cavity with a view exclusively or mainly to cleaning them, perfuming them, changing their appearance and/or correcting body odours and/or protecting them or keeping them in good condition.

There are three preliminary questions which should be addressed when deciding whether a product could legally be classified as a cosmetic purpose

Is the purpose of the product wholly or mainly cosmetic i.e. is it intended to:

• clean

• perfume

• change appearance

• correct body odour

• protect

• keep in good condition

If the main purpose of the product is not to perform one of these functions it is unlikely to be a cosmetic.

Site of application

Is the product intended to be applied to the:

• epidermis

• hair system

• nails

• lips

• external genital organs

• teeth

• mucous membrane of the oral cavity
