“Our robust and comprehensive resource is fast becoming a vital tool for retailers and manufacturers seeking pertinent, timely and insightful data at no cost.

“By giving organisations the tools to manage risk and build consumer confidence, we can help make the world a safer and more sustainable place.”

Beauty products listed on the site include skin lightening creams, perfumes, cleansers and body lotions.
