Lilial – and what is next?

On March 10th, Iwona Białas, PhD, led the webinar initiated by Wiadomoś Reason? The ban on selling cosmetics with Lilial and subsequent proposed changes to the cosmetic law, which caused a particular stir among cosmetic distributors.

Do you remember the history of Lilial? Will other ingredients await a similar fate?


The possibility of introducing and making available cosmetics with Lilial in the European market ended on March 1, 2022. Why? Because Article 15 of the Cosmetics Regulation prohibits us from using the CMR substances (unless by way of cosmetic legislation exception, we can justify its safe use… but that didn’t happen here).
