The final draft of the EU-wide Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals (REACH) Regulation’s microplastics restriction was published in September 2022; the final version is expected to be issued in 2023.  This restriction will have an extremely significant impact on all cosmetic product categories because its scope includes any solid, synthetic, non-biodegradable polymer in any cosmetic product.

This proposal will not be applicable in the GB market, which follows UK REACH instead as of 1 January 2021.  There may however be legislative activities on this matter in the UK.
