He heads the Unit in charge of cosmetics at the European Commission. A diplomat as much as a civil servant, he chooses his words but speaks clearly when it comes to presenting his plea for Europe: much is being done for consumer protection, particularly in the cosmetics sector; denying it and having a destructive approach would be a historical crime.
