CosIng cosmetic ingredients database
CosIng is the European Commission database with information on cosmetic ingredients contained in the "Cosmetics Directive" 76/768/EEC (Cosmetics Directive), as amended; Inventory of Cosmetic Ingredients, as amended; and Opinions on cosmetic ingredients of the Scientific Committee on Consumer Products. CosIng also allows for search for the relevant CAS, ELINCS or EINECS numbers. CosIng includes all data since the adoption of the Cosmetics Directive in 1976. Therefore the current data are mentioned as "active" and the historical data as "not active". However, references to scientific opinions of the Scientific Committee on Consumer Products are restricted to those published on the internet.
