ISO 22716 Good Manufacturing Practices for Cosmetics

Demonstrate your compliance to producing safe cosmetic products.

Consumers are becoming more and more concerned about the safety of the cosmetic products they are using. Fears of allergies and dermatitis caused by tainted or poisoned cosmetics have been ever-present and are increasing.

What is ISO 22716 Good Manufacturing Practices for Cosmetics?

ISO 22716 Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) for Cosmetics is an international, auditable standard that provides guidelines for the manufacturing, packaging, testing, storage, and distribution of cosmetic products. The guidelines provide practical advice to businesses in the management of their human, technical, and administrative sections that affect product quality.

  • Food & Drug Administration (FDA).
  • European Committee for Standardisation (CEN).
  • Japan Chemical Industry Association (JCIA).
