For example, if you wish to sell your cosmetic product in Europe, according to Regulation 1223/2009, any company must designate a Responsible Person (RP). This needs to be done within the European Community, for each product. Last but not least, it is essential to choose a marketing network and not to change it. Indeed, each cosmetic brand is specialized on a precise distribution network, which allows to reflect an image of professionalism and stability. If you choose the professional network of the beauty salon or hairdressing salon, you will also have to offer products in cabin format (large format). Thus it will require the conditioner’s packaging capacities to be well dimensioned.
