In their 6th annual report dated February 9th 2018, RAPEX mention the marketing ban on a false nail glue containing hydroquinone, which classifies it in the category of cosmetic products. Glue, a cosmetic product? This classification surprised CosmeticOBS, so we asked for the opinion of a regulations specialist. Who would have thought Dr Frédéric Lebreux, Biorius Chief Operating Officer, would give us an answer based on an analogy with the platypus? His explanation is actually charming, and quite relevant from a regulatory standpoint!
