How are cosmetics regulated in Europe?
Ingredient Bans: The EU has banned or restricted the use of over 1,600 ingredients in cosmetics, while the US has banned or restricted fewer than 20. This means that certain substances deemed unsafe in the EU may still be used in cosmetics in the US.
No Animal Testing: The 2013 EU Cosmetics Regulation has a strong stance against animal testing for cosmetics and has banned such testing for cosmetic products and ingredients. In the US, while there are efforts to reduce animal testing, it is not entirely banned, and some products may still undergo animal testing. The EU also prohibits the sale of cosmetic products or ingredients that have been tested on animals, regardless of where the testing took place.
High Labeling Requirements: The EU has specific labeling requirements that mandate the inclusion of detailed ingredient lists, allergen information, and expiration dates on cosmetic products. The US has less stringent labeling regulations, which may result in less comprehensive information for consumers.
Market oversight: Legislation requires that every cosmetic product placed on the market in Europe is safe to use and regulated with rigorous testing and ongoing monitoring.

Italy's beauty heritage can be traced back to the Roman Empire, where affluent citizens embraced elaborate skincare routines and indulgent baths.
The concept of skincare and cosmetics, including in the context of the Roman Empire, is rooted in ancient civilizations. While identifying the first Roman Emperor to create skincare products may prove elusive, it's clear that the Romans placed great importance on personal grooming and skincare. Roman women, in particular, were notable for their use of diverse beauty treatments and cosmetics. They harnessed natural elements like olive oil and herbs for cleansing and moisturizing, alongside creating cosmetics such as kohl for enhancing their eyes and rouge for their cheeks.
The Renaissance era marked a pivotal juncture in the history of cosmetics and perfumery, with Italy taking a leading role in pioneering these innovations. This rich tradition of Italian craftsmanship and an unbridled passion for beauty continued to evolve, leaving an indelible mark on the modern beauty industry.
Today, when you opt for a beauty product bearing the coveted "Made in Italy" label, you're not just choosing high-quality ingredients and standards; you're immersing yourself in a heritage of beauty that seamlessly blends tradition, innovation, and an unwavering commitment to accentuating one's natural allure.
