The Colorants Working Group is dedicated to the regulatory aspect of colorants and pigments listed on annex IV of the Cosmetics Regulation.

Following the entry into force of the Cosmetic Regulation 1223/2009, discrepancies seem to exist between the the Annex IV of the Cosmetics Directive and the Cosmetic Regulation. The actual Annex IV may need an update integrating changes in the Food Regulation. The Working Group ‘s objective is to bring clarification to our members and customers and propose amendments to Annex IV.
