The European Federation for Cosmetic Ingredients (EFfCI) first produced its Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) Guide in 2004, followed by its voluntary Certification Standard in 2010 to assure customers of product quality and, ultimately, safety.
We have actively helped to develop the Standard and Guide to keep it up to date with on-going quality and GMP developments, with the current edition released in 2012.
By the end of 2013, 11 of our manufacturing sites were EFfCI GMP certified, which:
- signals the quality and safety of our cosmetic ingredients; and
- provides our customers with a guarantee of quality and performance consistency to support their product claims.
