Where can I find information about the new REACH regulations, and whether a pigment is REACH compliant?

Ensuring the safety of chemicals is the main goal of the European Union's REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals) regulation. Pigments used in permanent makeup fall under the chemicals regulated by this regulation. Therefore, it is crucial to check whether a pigment is REACH compliant before use.

To check if a pigment is REACH compliant, you should look for a REACH compliance certificate from a reputable laboratory provided by the manufacturer. CTL Bielefeld Lab GmbH in Germany, Eurofins in France, and Intertek in the United Kingdom are just a few of the laboratories in the EU and the USA that issue REACH compliance certificates for pigments. In the United States, some laboratories providing pigments regulated by the FDA include CTL.

Here are a few links to these laboratories:

Bielefeld Lab GmbH (formerly CTL): https://ctl-bielefeld.de/en/

Eurofins Product Testing: https://www.eurofins.com/product-testing/

SGS: https://www.sgs.com/en/

Intertek: https://www.intertek.com/health-beauty/cosmetics/

TÜV Rheinland: https://www.tuv.com/world/en/cosmetics.html

Please note that some manufacturers may falsely advertise their pigments as REACH compliant when they are not. If you come across suspicious products, you should report them to the appropriate authorities. In the EU, you can report it to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) through an online reporting form, which can be found on their website: https://echa.europa.eu

The ECHA website provides more information about the new REACH regulations regarding pigments. It explains the current regulations concerning pigments under REACH and provides up-to-date information on any new restrictions that may be introduced. It also includes resources and guidance for companies involved in the production and use of pigments, as well as for consumers who use products containing pigments.

For artists performing permanent makeup procedures, it is important to use pigments that are REACH compliant and free from harmful ingredients. Clients should also inquire about the pigments used and request proof of their REACH compliance. This will help ensure the safety and quality of the procedure.

 

It is important for both permanent makeup artists and clients to be aware of pigment regulations and take necessary precautions to ensure safety and compliance. While China does not have specific regulations regarding permanent makeup pigments, the country has general regulations for cosmetics. It is recommended to use pigments only from reputable manufacturers and to conduct thorough research before purchasing any products. Additionally, clients should inquire about the pigments used and demand proof of compliance with regulations such as REACH. It is also important for permanent makeup professionals to stay up-to-date with new regulations and ensure they use high-quality, safe pigments in their procedures.

As a manufacturer, supplier, and seller of products for permanent makeup artists, Quantum prioritizes compliance with all regulations and ensures that our products meet the highest industry standards. Therefore, we sell REACH-compliant pigments, and you can verify their certification not only on our website under the "certificates" section of the product page but also through the database of the laboratory that has tested and certified Quantum and PermaBlend pigments.
