INCI labelling of ingredients
The INCI labelling of ingredients must be on the container and/or packaging of every cosmetic product.
All ingredients that are added intentionally to the cosmetic product must be listed. Ingredients are listed in descending order according to weight. No order is defined for ingredients below 1%. In addition, certain fragrance components (allergens) must be labelled.
Based on the “International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients” (INCI) buyers with allergies, for example, can check to see if the cosmetic product is suitable for them. 100% accuracy is therefore indicated not only for medical purposes, but also for the trust and credibility of the cosmetic service provider.
