EFfCI GMP Certification Scheme

Ensure that your synthetic and natural cosmetic and personal care ingredients meet European Federation for Cosmetic Ingredients’ (EFfCI) Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) guide.

The importance of protecting and enhancing cosmetic product safety and quality cannot be overstated. Whether synthetic or natural, your cosmetic and personal care ingredients must meet the EFfCI GMP guide. Established in 2000, EFfCI brings together European manufacturers of synthetic or natural ingredients for the cosmetic and personal care industry. EFfCI defines and advocates the collective interests of over 100 European member companies.

EFfCI’s GMP guide helps its members and others within the cosmetic and personal care industry to ensure the highest quality and safety standards for cosmetic product ingredients and manufacturing processes.
