The packaging of a cosmetic product is an essential element to assess its safety. What are the requirements that make it a suitable packaging? The guiding principles are listed in EU Regulation 1223/2009. The assessment of a potential migration of substances from the packaging to the cosmetic product can be performed with interaction studies; however, there are no standard procedures for cosmetic products.
